Posted by mahdrof: Unfortunately in poker these downswings are going to happen. When they happen to me I change games a little. In stead of playing cash I will do SNG/MTT, or play Omaha or 7STUD, even Rummy, and I find that after a few days my head is clear and I am ready to come back. When you stick with the same formula all the time and never vary, you fall into the trap that Vince Lombardi is famously quoted in saying "Winnning is a habit, unfortunately so is losing." Change things up and break the habit. GL
Excellent bit of advice with changin game type, but sometimes i find im actually playin more loose on some days than others. So i think those days i play loose are more suited to cash games, an the days when im prepared 2 sit for hours foldin are obviousely MTT days, the middle ground is 1 player SNGS
