I think you should just stay at the energy drink level of powerboost, it's one thing to start playing with a nice amount of booze in your system (like I do every on some special weekends) and it's another going at it with Hunter S. Thompson style. Great results on the front of having some fun, but will hurt your judgement and math skills greatly for playing cards.

keep on going until you faint
jk, just keep playing til you notice youre either too tired and cant keep your concentration up, or you notice signs of downswing coming your way (downswings are usuaully accompanied with their nasty friend, tilt, those 2 usually stick together, friends for life... that sort of stuff?)
cheers and gl, and yea stay away from cocaine and stuff. Not to mention its also costly, so ud have to win much much more playing poker! i also heard lots of stuff about speed, but its mostly used for parties, not poker play though (never tried it mind u, i just have a friend who tried it once, long long time ago... back in... umm, late april i think... good old times).

If you are having a winning strike try to play as much as you can, but know when to stop. I see your choice of games for ring games is out of the usual ones especially with badugi. Either way whatever your choice is, good luck with it.

Well the upswings are when you have to maintain prfitability, that is don't get overhyped and play like a deranged squirrel because as we all know downswings follow upswings. Getting out at the right time is key. I've seen it happen myself so often, crushing for an hour or more then you get goosed by multiple hands.

Gratz, nice run and the second place at the 10 fpp "freeroll" are a verry good winning!. And to triple up your roll with cashgame are really a nice upswing- and no suckouts with top hands at stars: i never saw it in the past...

Hmm if you winning or on an upswing and think you doing something wrong and do not deserve it, I think the best advice would be to call it a quit and save the upswing. You could even cashout because your mental game is not up to it.
You have to work on your mental game, their is scare money feeling when you fear of losing your money and now you scare of losing your winnings basically a mental block. Work on it and you can continue to play a lot and make money!
