before every session..,,set a target...decide what and how you gonna outplay..others

my best sessions ive played ,with a 1-2 hour mental preparation,,and deciding if i am realy in for a long pokersession this moment...


answered it with a yes,,,and still positive and enthousiastic??

play and u will win... Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Smile Smile

------------
Today i played only time tournaments on pokerstars.. 15 min and 30 minutes ,,

Have played 5-6 and got only 1 results,,,so got about break even with these..which is dissapointing

Every time i did not reach itm...and end of tournament i went for a heads-up...to compensate loses..

guess what ,????

won all HU-matches today ,,around 10-12 games,,,which i found extraordinary,, not 1 bad beat and dominating opponents in all HU-matches today...

damn, why does this not happen when i play 30$ heads-up>????

last time i did that it was total disaster... Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

now after i wrote this ,i start thinking again and again...

why win 12 in a row Hu on 1.5$??

and lose 7-8 in a row on 15-30 $???

the cards are the same ,,my desicions are ,,maybe a bit stronger opponents,, but still...

damn confusing this online pokergame,,,

also have tried to start HU-1.5 $ win..move up 3.5 $, win?? move up 7$, win? move up 15$..

and then i start to doubt myself ,,should i still move up?? or move back to 1,5$

GRRRRR, desicions,,,diff between big stack and big loser Smile Smile Smile Blink

just another experience by uhhcallmi,,
hoped u enjoyed reading Big Smile

you know you have to really think about how your playing.
when im not winning hands i should be in a session i start playing differently without realising for a while, im calling re-raises with marginal hands im opening with weaker than i normally would and so on.
when i notice im playing like this i take a couple of breaths maybe even i break and start playing my game again.

i heard something the other day too which made me think about my game differently aswell and never even thought about before but is totally true.
i was watching sky poker and one of the "experts" mantioned 'positive tilt' he said when we are winning we can go on "positive tilt" which makes us believe we are running so good that we will hit everything so play more hands.

so if your winning or losing just think about how you are playing and make sure it is your normal game. Big Smile

good luck in building your bankroll further Thumbs Up

That’s the problem of most of online poker players. Me, for example, I always tend to think about the time I have to play. So, if I have two hours to play it, I will do it for two hours, not thinking that, if it happens for one of the games to run really good (like winning very nice at a ring table), that probably I should stop the session there. Most of the times, when almost near to end my poker session, I notice I start playing worst, like if I wanted to give a last shot to increase my profits faster, and it happens the opposite…

Like me, difficult to stop when play. just want to play, play and play. Win play more, lost play more and more. Maybe cos our mental is just playing, is not winning mental. Lol, let' change our mental first, bro.
Good luck for all mobster Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

my problem is to start playing,, stopping is not that much hard...i realy have to charge myself up.. so mostly i start with 1 table,, if going well and not knocked out,, i open another table...

i reach itm on one of the 2...,, i open another and so on..nowadays i stop ,after having 4-5 tables open...don't open more untill i finished the 4 tables...and got me profit...

You should always set a target when you want to play a poker session, but most importantly make a max amount you are willing to lose...

If you lose more than that stop because the only thing you'll do is to lose even more unfortuantely Blink

Like its been said above.
If you cant handle yourself try to set a target, both for losing and winning.
That will help you somehow to restrain yourself.
After you reach your target just get away from the internet the first days.
It will keep you from relapsing Smile

i know when to stop- when i lose my whole bankroll Big Smile afterwards just sit in front of monitor for a while talking to your virtual "friends" at the table in all possible "kind" ways to end the day on a positive note Big Smile i like to build my roll from free money offers, promotions, so i do not lose any of my money- this is the only reason i haven't hit my pc with a hammer Aww crap!

A basic principle of poker is if you are having a bad time, getting furstrated and impatient with rubbish cards, keep losing hands you should be winning etc, then just walk away and go and do something else. On the contrary, if you are playing well and enjopying it (remembering that concentration is key) then niothing else in life is more important than carrying on playing.

My example tonight is I fancied playing, didnt really know which game to play so picked one and almost isntantly didnt feel like it....so I walked away and came here instead tom seek inspiration from you guys. Think im gonna go to bed now though!!!!!

Maybe your game has some leak eventhough you are tilted or not. You should study the way you played and try to improve before you start losing money again. Just my opinion
