It's a fantastic post, should be mandatory reading for anyone who tells bad beat stories non-stop or who keeps crying about beats.

Wow, wow, wow and wow.

Hey look; a new world! What does the sign say?
-"Free key to poker succes."
Hmm let's have a look...

Great briljant post OP.

What I just wanted to say is how funny I find the reactions of some people to the OP. I'm not even gonna say what it is, but reading the post apparently very hard.

Re: Success, Failure, and the Downswing Mindset

Nice poast Scansion,I don't hover around here too often hence me only just reading it.

I'm on a bit of a downer at the moment and my mindset is way off where I'd like it to be.This post bings up alot of stuff that gets players thinking about their mentality of the game.

Thanks alot,again great post

Re: Success, Failure, and the Downswing Mindset

this is the third post ive read by scansion tonight. this one, above all else, has almost instantly helped me the most.

heading into post with one mind set after a bad session focused on the past, leaving the post with a completely different mind set focused on the future.



who knew...

Wish I had seen this post a month ago. Lurked for a while, but felt compelled to compliment OP on giving me a rationale way of thinking/dealing about variance

Re: Success, Failure, and the Downswing Mindset

Funny to read, I'm intrigued aswell how poker players can be so delusional, ask a random pokerplayer if their villain was better then them, 99% will answer no even if they were (including 2+2'ers)

Cool to read my thoughts in a good post.

I just love how all these poker concepts are also applicable in life.
