Yeah, was pretty ****ty, but I'm glad I clan lose $1300 in one day and have it not tilt me anymore. I wasn't tilting off stacks or anything, just several coolers. Wasn't on my A game and could have probably made some hero folds, but don't think I was playing terrible. There was a 86/56 vpip/pfr guy potting preflop and every flop/turn and ran pretty bad against him. I couldn't get value from my value hands and my bluffs didn't work out.

How do you not get tilted after losing that much money? I mean were you always like that, or you've read some good books on psychology or maybe you were working a lot on your psychology with a coach?

Just got over it. Of course it used to affect me. In fact, I've had to take several breaks before after losing significantly less money than that. But, having to take time away from the tables is still going to be a form of tilt.

You just realize that it doesn't matter. Play your best, you can't control the out come.

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

4 tabled 100nl for about 3 hrs, got rivered several times in some small-medium sized pots which sucks majorly. Also, didn't make some folds that I should have made several times. I got coolered really bad once w/ KQss on a AXXsss board, gii on flop and guy got runner runner for a boat (i was close to a 98% favorite), that was around a $155 pot. Anyways, wasn't really playing great to begin with but ended fine.

-$40

BR: $3,632.25

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

4 tabled 100nl for about 1.5hrs. I was on my A-game. Didn't luck out or suck out on anyone, lost a couple coin flips so ran under EV, but definitely got into some spots where my reads were good and very +EV.

+$250

Just make +EV plays, who cares whether the line is red or blue.

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

4 tabling 100nl. I started off really badly, I was playing poorly, made a super bad bluff where I essentially leveled myself against a regfish and was -$400 in the hour. I kept strong and started a second session after a short break and was on my A-game however. Also, there was a MASSIVE WHALE on my right in one table where I took around $400 off this guy in 100 hands. He ended up leaving the table -$750 (wow).

+$520

BR: $4,407.67

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

Was down around $20 from a SNG and a coin flip I lost playing vs a SS at 25nl just for a short bit earlier today. I just did a 1.5hr session two tabling 100nl and was card dead + disconnected a couple times.

-$130

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

I played again last night and lost more but didn't post. Was down to around $4,005 so another -$260 session last night.

Today I 4-tabled 100nl and got into some gross spots and ended up down around $100. I then 2-tabled 50nl zone and 2-tabled 25nl zone at the same time for a while to make it back. Break even day.

BR: $4,002

this is 100nl so far

Even tho the hand sample is really small, but your bb/100 is impressive on both, NL50 and NL100. Do you have a coach?
