Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Update:

Played 10 hours and snapped my losing streak. Erased roughly my last 4 losses combined.

Didn't really run well for how many hands I got, but obviously I'm not complaining since I ran well to have those hands in the first place. I had 3 river overbets (all for value) vs the same fish but only 1 got called, as he was bluffing with complete air the other 2 times and would have called if had the hands he was trying to represent.

A bad reg next to me won as much as I did in 1 hand (that he butchered) by smashing a set with an underpair vs another fish and getting a full double up very deep because the fish obv couldn't fold trips to a river jam. Again, not complaining, but yeah poker is lol 90% luck.

At this point I'm certain I'm due for some run bad tomorrow, but we're taking it one day at a time.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

Good to hear Sabr. I agree with the others who have said that you show lots of entitlement. Who cares that some moron got lucky against some other moron. It’s not worth it to worry about **** that you have zero control over. Also it’s good that the idiot won money instead of the more likely scenario where a tough pro wins it and that money is locked up in a vault for good.

It's fun for you now?

You're the one defining success for you. You could ask yourself where your goals are coming from and if they're rational. Your goal could be how much can I save in a year traveling the country only playing 2 5. Or, it could be not letting bad results bother you (You already know you're an expert at poker, so you could develop a mood scoring system for yourself and congratulate yourself when you have completely unlocked yourself from your results)

Anyway, you do have control over this. One of the mind tricks that can work is to think about what advice you'd give yourself. Or, what would a 10 years older version of yourself, with the same bank balance, say to you.

Any MLB fans/sportsbetters out there?
I’m finding it hard to believe the Red Sox, Yankees AND Astros won’t all win 100+ games this year. Would it ever be worth betting a team like the Astros every single game of the year if you think they’re a lock for 100 wins? There’s no real lock way to figure that out, is there?

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I'm something of an outsider here but . . .

Arguing with a depressed person about how they are doing it wrong is generally not going to help.

(SABR42, I could give you all sorts of advice, but it would be just like the advice other people are giving you, and most of it would be off-target and the rest would be something you are sick of hearing. So just be aware that I, too, am rooting for you and want you to feel better and to prosper. If you have what it takes to beat 5-10 NL, you can figure out how to get through this bad time and make your life better.)

The gypsy's what? Her dog? Her curse?

Yeah, I'm guessing the gypsy's curse. All adds up, imo.

I am prolly the wrong person to listen to here. With regards to rec type of activities I have always had a yolo attitude. I have never skimped and I have zero ragrets.

I have an absolute ton of great memories doing a sht load of fun stuff with my daughter - I will obv cherish them forever.

Barg coming in here - My 22 yo daughter (college senior) is flying in tomorrow with her boyfriend to spend her spring break recreating with me and spc. We are x-pirts at that sht. And I instilled my love of that stuff into my kid. I highly advise doing the same (i know you are doing it too apd).

this trip we will b

hanggliding
one wheelin
atv ing
wake boardin
wake surfin
and plenty o other fun stuff

Connecting with your kids recreating for me means a lifelong bond of always having fun stuff to do together that is not "prepackaged fun"

so go 4 it mang!

I have a somewhat similar attitude in respekts to recreating. Fwiw I’ve compiled a list of worst financial decisions than the one I am currently making...

I think the fact that 22 year old college students want to spend spring break with their dad (or their girlfriend's dad) speaks volumes.
