You're showing you're a grown up player. This is the best tip a pro can give to himself and to every players. If knowledge is everything, try to know what you still don't know, and try to know what is there to know when on the tables. Because studying you'll know there's lots of signs you can understand to know how to play in certain circumstances, but you'll also know those signs can be tricks to make you play in a certain way, so yuo should move other ways when you detect that. Keep reading, keep trying, the experience at the tables will give you a lot of experience but there's no doubt one should complement it with knowledge from the game (note: information is different from knowledge; knowledge is understanded information)!

I think you are right in saying that you need to learn that you do not know everything. Some people think they know everything but in truth you need to keep updating your knowledge to get better in any walk of life

About the bankroll management, i agree with what you write, and i guess one of the best attitudes a guy who knows how to play and who wants to show what to do in terms of bankroll managements could have would be to get down to his audience level and do something with them. For instance, BRM just released a new ndb. I guess you still don’t have na account there either, just like most of the mobsters. What better way to show some “how to do” feature than to get that bonus (which will start with only $5, so it will be a headache to manage it, in order to make it grow) and show novices what is possible to do with that Money? I know you do your own challenges, but this would be a nice one for everyone around here to follow. Keep up the good work with your bankrolls and also with your writing, i always like to read what you have to tell us.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I do hope people actually get something out of this challenge. I know some people have misunderstood it. It is not about making millions of dollars, it is about not going bust. best wishes to you all
