"A stranger is being shown around a village that he has just become part of. He is shown a well and his guide says "On any day except Saturday, you can shout any question down that well and you'll be told the answer."

The man seems pretty impressed, and so he shouts down: Why not on Saturday? and the voice from in the well shouts back: Because on Saturday, itís your day in the well."

I have gotten a lot out of the 2p2 community but I'm a still a losing player. I thought I would give back by answering questions about being a losing player. This might help winning players better exploit losing players like me. I will answer most questions honestly except how much I lost in total. So, on with the questions.

About 3 years. At first, I was losing because I had no clue. Then, I got serious and beat nl25 for about 4bb/100 over maybe like 40k hands. I was a brief winner for a short period but that was short lived.

Because I think it will help winning players better understand how losing players think so they can better exploit them.

How can you go from being a winner over 40k hands to losing again?

What are the biggest leaks in your game?

I play mostly heads up NL and Omaha. Biggest leaks are tilt and bankroll management without question. Calling preflop when I shouldn't is a big leak as well.

whats the best way to tilt a losing play HU?

when a losing player is tilted and typing obscenities and racial slurs into the chat box - whats the best way to keep them tilted and donking off buyins instead of instaquitting after shoving A high for 5x pot on a JT8 flop?
