I don't see the reason to start a new thread for every question, if the conversation in an existing thread is steering towards a question that would apply.
    Sounds reasonable to me

    The problem is, there are many good books out there, and it took me a long time to read them all once (about 25 books), and some even twice, but it's hard to reread every book several times, thousands of pages. Practicing takes also much time and should not be neglected over theory.

    Theory is great if you’re on a desert island stranded and by yourself. At some point, you have to come face to face with the beast.

    Speaking of desert islands, a cousin of mine was stranded on one for several years, and built himself an island paradise, with oddly enough, 2 synagogues. Eventually, he was rescued and proudly showed his benefactors his island creations. One if his rescuers was puzzled and queried - why 2 synagogues. He pointed to one proudly exclaiming - that’s my SHUL, the other one I wouldn’t be caught dead in.

One of the things I like best about halves is it’s ability to identify MARGINAL strengths and MARGINAL weakness of the deck, where hi lo showed lesser or greater strength. It gives me confidence to play some of the schtick that I do.
    It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Your post mirrors word for word my comments in post 7. Thank you.
