I could go on and on! After watching season 6-11 all Break I went back and started from the very beginning. She’s equally just as bad as season 11, literally has not changed and to me is the equivalent of Jax but worse 😂

Australia has the best record in the world for virtually eliminating the virus. Just because you’re a bunch of multi millionaire celebrities doesn’t mean you get to bring your disease with you and spread it for the sake of hitting a yellow ball over a net. There’s zero chance that you’re worth more than the lives we are trying to save. And in saying that, knowing full well the rules of isolation if someone became infected in the plane, you should’ve travelled earlier to Australia so you had more time to practice once out of isolation. You knew about the plans well in advance.
To claim that this is torture etc., well, go ask your dead friends and grandparents back in Europe and the USA if it’s torture? Just because your people failed to be compliant and are now reaping the repercussions doesn’t mean that Australia will. Also, to the female player who doesn’t understand why a plane would be isolated when one person is infected: how dense are you, seriously? Do you not know how this virus works?
EDIT: wow thanks everyone didn’t realise that this would blow up! Thank you for all of the support and awards — I just really feel passionate about keeping everyone safe and not risking our community, our businesses and most importantly, our lives over a game (that I love)! So many Victorians can’t even get home from interstate yet all these players get to fly in to Melbourne. Very sad.
League of Legends is a technical game. From champion mastery to Lee Sin mechanics, there are many external skills to learn. You can find countless guides on YouTube, Reddit, and Twitch for these topics, but they're half the battle. To perform at the highest level in any field, we must develop inner skills. Staying concentrated. Being resilient. You may possess the knowledge to achieve X rank, but your weak mental is stopping you. No one teaches us how to navigate our minds. We only realize this problem after losing 10 games or being demoted an entire tier. And soon enough, we're back to our normal ways. That voice inside your head, scrutinizing your every move, is hindering your growth. It's preventing you from entering flow, peak psychological performance. We play out of our minds when we're not thinking too hard about our gameplay. After reading The Inner Game of Tennis by Timothy Gallwey, I couldn't help but connect the dots to esports. How can we be self-confident? How can we empty our minds? I'm going to share my notes and observations in this post. I introduce to you The Inner Game of League of Legends.
We all know what it's like to be mad at ourselves. Your death during laning phase turned into a 5000 gold lead for the enemy team*.* You call yourself idiot, stupid, dumb, and the list continues. In response, you try correcting your mistakes. "I shouldn't have flashed for that kill". "I missed my ultimate". Your judgement suffocates you and brews negative emotions. Who are you talking to exactly? Gallwey identifies in every player the two selves: Self 1 and Self 2. The voice inside your head is Self 1. It craves external validation and feeling special. It believes it knows how to reach the next level. Self 1 believes it must control Self 2 in order to succeed. Self 1 has little to no respect for Self 2. On the other side, Self 2 is your body. Millions of orchestrated neurons. A complex nervous system. The prefrontal cortex. Self 2 learns to ride a bike once, and it forever holds that feeling. It is so powerful that it can perform insane outplays in high-stake moments. When Self 2 is relaxed and free, its potential is limitless. But, because Self 1 ridicules Self 2, Self 2 becomes tense. The rigidity of the muscles and mind cause more mistakes. And Self 1 continues to throw the blame at Self 2. *The key to unlocking mental fortitude is changing the re... keep reading on reddit ➡
Betting Early and Price Shopping
[This graph] (https://imgur.com/gallery/KKPxdve) shows my units gained and ROI from betting ATP tennis in 2019 & 2020. The blue line is my actual results over 615 bets in that time period. These are the odds I actually bet the matches at. The stats are as follows: 352-250-13, +77.32u, +8.9% ROI, +1.94% CLV, +12.3 average cents of CLV per bet, and I beat the closing line 70% of the time. You can see all my past bets [here] (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XvXPpU4EHQBtrFXm6hqvgrtDn8uPr_p92Fx64Vp49kU/edit?usp=sharing). Note: FWIW, people calculate CLV differently. I calculate it as the % difference in implied probability, some people do the expected value % way.
I decided to chart my returns as if I had made every bet at Pinnacle's closing line, the red line on the graph. The difference is quite noticeable. My returns betting at the closing line over those same 615 bets are as follows: +35.8u, +4.3% ROI. Getting on lines as early as possible (assuming you're on the right side) and shopping for the best prices even if its only between 2 or 3 books can make a massive difference in your results. I personally only shopped between BetOnline and Bookmaker as these books are better for tennis, but you could only imagine the insane advantage you could get shopping between 7-8 different books. Obviously many of us on r/sportsbook knew this was the case in theory, but I thought it would be cool for everyone to see the difference it can make over the longer-term: over multiple years and over 500+ bets, the added value from betting early and shopping for the best price will magnify your returns. After all, not many people track their results long enough to see this change. We're talking about getting only a 12 cent head start on the closing line, doubled my return after 600 picks.
It seems not all Pinnacle closing lines are as efficient as made out to be
I was a bit surprised to see my results at close still had a 4.3% ROI over 600 bets. This return over that sample is beginning to become statistically significant. Pinnacle is known for having some of the sharpest closing lines in the business. Now tennis isn't on the same level as, say, English Premier league, but what gives here?
[This graph] (https://imgur.com/gallery/UsLEouP) made by Pinnacle charts over 136,000 odds on tennis matches spanning from 2015-2019. As you can see there is an incredibly high degree of effi... keep reading on reddit ➡
Troy berating Britta after Abed had to suffer watching all of the characters of Cougarton Abby die, S3E1
I've always been in mystique about why Lomachenko has an insanely high boxing IQ? It seems he prepares for "downloading information" very nicely by doing these calculations throughout his workouts. How can one emulate such skill, I am afraid it will become a lost art similar to Prime Mike Tyson's Peekaboo taught by Cus Damato!
Ok, so...serious question, why is this question, how to become a pro player so common in this sub? I'm going to give people the benefit of the doubt and say that the questions are coming from genuine curiosity or even serious consideration.
I would not expect someone to post "I've never played a down of (American) Football. I'm 16, do you think I can be a NFL player?" or "I play basketball occasionally, what are the chances I make it into the NBA and what should I do to get there?"
Is there something inherent in tennis that makes people believe it is easier to be a professional than other sports to where you can start when you're almost an adult? To be a professional in any of the high earning sports, you basically have to play from when you were in elementary school.
Edit: To anyone still reading this, thanks to all that commented!! I learned a lot about different perspective on tennis! Haha. I'm typically a commenter and have rarely ever posted! I'm surprised so many people responded! 😄😄
