I play with ceoncentration , not often on tilt but from one second to another cenod withpout any sense i want to play higher limits,
make stupid calls just so show myself that i am to bad to play poker,an think than the whole day about it why i make such a Bull****
This is my problem since a long time and sometime sit works to play without this brainproblem but from one day to another.

Thank my BR doenst like such brain moves is easy to see.

Has someone an advice or tip for me ? It sucks because on winnings i dont have fun at the moment because i am afraid of the next braindead.

Learn poker strategy and math. That way you will have constructive thoughts while playing poker, or in other words, more reason to be reasonable. Best wishes, Tuma.

Write out specific financial goals and obsess over them. You need to reprogram into your brain the specific objective in playing. Bits of that code just now are 'proving you're a good player.'

You need to reprogram into your brain the specific objective in playing.

Hi 13831383;53241273:

I'm not a believer in goals and I don't see successful people who are goal setters. What happens is that they find something they like and work hard at it because it's fun and not work for them (even thopugh tey're working hard at it), and that's how they get good. In Post #2 above Tuma says to "Learn poker strategy and math," and I think this is the right approach. But if you don't enjoy doing this, it will be unlikely, in my opinion, that you'll be able to do this successfully and thus won't be successful at poker. So this will be a decision only you can make.

Best wishes,
Mason

I would agree with many other in this post and say learn strategy. Also, I think you should play tournaments and set goals if you're thinking about the big money. KInd of hard to play high stakes without strategy.
