How I play, how long I play, 12 or 24 hours or longer. What I do and how I go about it, slow grind, fast hit, unit value, unit size, unit ratio, are all secondary.
What matters is getting the job done.
The odds of picking the same ball from a bag of 128 balls is 128/1, this can not
be disputed by any mathematician. Sometimes you do run into the same ball, twice or even trice, yet the odds remain 128/1 (14%). I would rather place my faith in the maths of avoiding 14% than a Golden Monkey.
I use to play the 'Trend' over a decade ago, I gave that fallacy up in a real hurry, when I came across the term "Pattern Capturing" which started the ball rolling to "Predetermined Pattern Avoidance" and it has been and remains a evolving evolution. Been there done that, sent the postcard. Trending maybe fine for the right shoe that fits. But to play this game long term, you need something more robust than just playing a guessing game and placing emphasis were none actually exists other than in your own imagination
I also suggest installing some mirrors at home before jumping on a soap box.
This is from a ?750 starting point, just over 2 weeks ago I think (lost track of time). I was doing great last week, but got smashed due to a composure lapse, so I then just won it all back again...
How long, how far, who knows, burn-out approaching? Probably...
