Hello! I am curious about everyone's opinion on this subject. I am wondering what people think the biggest X factor is that separates the best players in the world from everyone else!

    creativity... anyone can work hard. anyone can learn to see chips as something other than money... but true elite players play a very different game than the masses... they're creative storytellers who don't need good cards to show a consistent profit

    Grit, someone's ability to persevere and follow through with their goals. At least that's what creates success, not entirely sure about elitism. Probably a combination of natural ability, creativity, and grit.

    They work hard in a creative/strategic/outside the box kind of way. For some reason, I think of this quote from Apple:

    "Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
