Hello players,so yesterday i played poker almost all day in the morning online poker,later live poker till night. So what i saw,that i at first hour of poker can play really good,in online poker i made 20 dollars in 15minutes(i guess i was lucky) but later i lost it in next hour,same at live poker,i played cash and made from 10 dollars to 30dollars,and then i started play so bad and lost it all(in 3hours). So maybe someone know some info where i can read something about it?

hahaha i would take your problem right away- make all the profit in 1st hour of play and lose all of it later...easy solution: stop playing after 1 hour besides taking home all of your profit, you would also save yourself lots of time, so a double win here. gl on the tables, under the tables and between the tables...

yea ,i gwess pochui is right oance again BUT... if u want to be a ''semipro'' and win an major tournament or a good one u have to endure at less 3-4h .If u play online its easy,lesen some music ,wach tv,or something that stimulate U (say no to drogs ;p ).If u don t have time or u re not in u mood pass that day. Btw if u say that u re gameplay is stong in first hour play more S&G (turbo or superturbo)u ll also learn to be agresive in short tables ;P
This is where bankroll management...stop loss limits become important when building a roll. It's equally important to set limits and stick to them on up and down swings. Depending on the amount won...tend to only fall 20 BB max, usually set it to -10 BB. The theory here is to stand up from the table with a positive result. This can help one recoup quicker becoz of a positive mindset at the outset of ur break. It's one of those things that requires some discipline to initiate and becomes easier over time. Tend to use orbits and +/- BB's instead of the clock, find this helps to stay focused longer. When our focus starts to wane or when it all starts to go South...then as the song says...."know when to run"
