And why do we crave it so much?
The feeling is the amygdala in the temporal lobe of the brain responding to the stimulus that provokes the fear. How can activities such as reading or playing poker elicit the same exhilarating response?
And why do we crave it so much? When we become scared , our body combines the thinking part of the brain and the emotional part of the brain to label an event as a possible danger. But the same chemicals involved in the stress response are also present in positive responses to both excitement and pleasure. All create a state of high arousal in the human brain and can affect how we think and feel. When faced with a scenario that elicits fear deep down, yet is quickly reassessed as safe, the high arousal becomes more of a thrill than a fright.
So that takes us to reading. Watching horror movies that can result in terrifying jump frights or horrendous images to shock us provide visual cues for fear. But what about when we know they are just words on a page that we have to add meaning to in order to fully comprehend?

The fear elicited comes from the almost lawless society that becomes and the constant threat the characters feel themselves under. The Wolfman and The Thing, meanwhile, focus on a werewolf and alien respectively, which immediately inputs the feeling of fear into our brains and allows the thrills to play out.
April 19th, , 1: When to defend against a raise and when to throw the hand away appears to be one of my greater weaknesses. For example, I have AQ suited in middle position, im first in the pot so I raise. The button re-raises, I call. Bet-call down to the river after hitting an Ace on the flop only to be looking up AK. But in reality, Im also worse than that. Late in tounraments, defending my blind usually costs me.
I feel obligated to call a minimum raise, especially from the big blind, but obviously I need to find a range of what hands to call with and when to call with em in 3- bet and blind defending situations.
