      I read somewhere about the type of tilt where if you are winning big your game degrades and you either
      A - really start protecting winnings and playing not A game
      B - start splashing chips around

      And I suddenly realized I had A type tilt. I am playing NL50 and sitting with $250 and things are just awesome and I am happy :D and then I played this hand real real bad and realized this is happy tilt (or whatever the correct name is for this type of behavior)

      $0.25/$0.50 Ante $0.10 No Limit Holdem
      PokerStars
      6 Players

      Stacks:
      UTG ($50)
      UTG+1 ($108.15)
      Hero (CO) ($251.65)
      BTN ($133.50)
      SB ($41)
      BB ($71.25)

      Pre-Flop: ($1.35, 6 players) Hero is CO K:club: K:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $2, 1 fold, SB calls $1.75, BB calls $1.50

      Flop: 2:spade: Q:club: 2:diamond: ($6.60, 3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $2.50, Hero raises to $7.50, SB folds, BB calls $5

      Turn: 9:spade: ($21.60, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $10, BB calls $10

      River: 5:spade: ($41.60, 2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      Final Pot: $41.60

      I was like well he might be slowplaying 2 with that strange flop play or he could have hit the flush so I just check river back :f_mad:
      Now I realized I did this to protect the winnings -
      and looking back it is like wtf is that small turn bet and river check.

      Have you guys also encountered this?
