Well there is a tide in the affairs of men - if you know that quote from Julius Caesar - which means that when the crest is at its highest you're supposed to push upwards and onwards. This is known as the clutch in gambling the pivotal point where you have the chance to take it all but only if you press it. At such times must press hard or else be doomed to failure or mediocrity.

But there are also times when that crest is not sufficient to push you on and is the high point of the session. To push on further will just lead to erosion.

Knowing or sensing the difference, ay there's the rub.
