      Hey guys

      So i just finished a session where i was playing 5 MT SNGs and 1 regular MTT (like 4500 man). I started off just running like Usain Bolt and quickly got a lot of chips on every table. Then near the bubble something weird happened. All of a sudden my luck just hugely backfired and i busted out of ALL 6 tournies on or near the bubble within like 3 minutes. First my aces got cracked by 44, then my AQs ran into KK etc. I really feel i was playing my best, but now am to say the least a bit tilted. So my question is; should i take a break even though im playing my best or just suck it up and continue playing even though i now the next bad beat might send me into ultra tilt? I would also be interested to know if this sort of thing has happened to you and how you dealt with it. Thanks for the replies !

      Hey, yes you should take a break if you know that you'll be on tilt after next bad beat. Such situations happens to everyone, but i just don't care about that and keep playing my best.
