This is my thought of the learning curve on the route to becoming an excellent player - what do you think?

I listened to the PokerStars Pokercast yesterday with Ray Zee (one of the original great players in the Johnie Moss, Stu Ungar, Doyle Brunson era). During a segment he was asked about his thoughts on the progression from being a beginning to an expert poker
player. I was interested to find that he referred to this progression in four "Stages"

(summarized below):

Stage 1. Beginners Start out too loose
Stage 2. Realizing they are too loose, they become too tight
Stage 3. Advanced - They start to use imagination, bluff, hand reading become LAG
Stage 4. Expert - Then they incorporate the skill/traits in stage the tight stage 2 with the imaginative Skills they learned in the stage3

Ray went on to say that all of the great players he knew, and saw from the beginning, went through the same stages - not exactly but pretty much along the same lines".
