Results Oriented

Was just thinking about the good old days of internet poker.  Sometimes when I'd get all in at cash game I'd cover the screen with my hand.  No need to see what came on the turn and river.  Just think about the hand.  Did I get my money in good?  I've either won a big pot or lost it all.  The actual result may or may not be the expected result.  The expected result is what matters for judging play.  Yet the actual result is what matters to most people in life.  Unfortunately.
