Shaun Murphy tries the same in every frame of every match of every tournament.
His professionalism has seen him bounce back from his Crucible final defeat to John Higgins two weeks ago to win two titles in the Sportingbet.com World Series.
Last week it was the grand finals of year one. Last night he beat Jimmy White 5-1 in Killarney to win the first event of year two.
Of course, Murphy would swap them both for the World Championship trophy but he genuinely enjoys playing and these tournaments did him a favour: he could have been sat at home mulling over why he didn't perform in the Sheffield final but instead got back to the table with a fresh challenge.
The weekend was fun as snooker always is in Ireland. The crowds were large and a good time was had by all.
The World Series has quietly become a success. It doesn't have the profile of the ranking event circuit but, so far, it has made good impressions in each of the cities it has visited.
Its strength is that the events only last a couple of days and so don't outstay their welcome.
This can only be good for snooker. The sport needs as many televised tournaments as possible to keep it in the public mind.
It used to be that when the World Championship ended, snooker disappeared from our screens for five or six months.
It can only be good that those days are over.
