And you don't know you're limitations, you just place limitations on yourself.
In January 2006 I was a small winner and moved first time from full ring games to 6 max. I was bonuswhoring a very tight 2B2 (now know as Entraction network) site. I lost 500 BB, because of bad play (I was a new to 6max games) tilt and relatively tight games lot's of bonuswhores and a high rake (overall I break about even thanks to a massive bonus). After my 500 BB loss I have to take 1 year break of playing and seriously consider killing myself. Now I always play many levels below what I really beat. I can't take big losses.
I know my limitations and are happy to play small stakes. I place limitations on myself, because I don't want to kill myself. Yes, I know that I could lose badly and probably lose sooner or later at small stakes also, I just hope I don't kill myself.
