      Ok i have started so many grinding projects with around 250 starting to play NL10Rush then after some days i start shoting at higher limits i usally goes well even though i know i shouldent do it. The thing that triggers it is when i start hiting a downswing. I usally get it up to 1890$ then i loose it all it has happend two times.

      And i just startet a new grinding project with 50$ i managed to get it up to 100$ playing 1$ SnG and and NL5 Rush with 2$ on the table. But then 10min ago i started loosing and i lost it down to 80$. I went on some kind of tilt and went to play NL100Rush with the 80$ i dobbeled up but still i wonder if anyone has some tips on how to not shot on higher limits. Im such a donk sometimes......

      I also just started a blog on my progress Here

      Thanks for all the answears and please dont flame me im aware of my own faults just need tips.

      No tips, but I know what you mean from my very own experience. When it appears that your biggest enemy is yourself. Well, pretty fucked up situation.

      Shut down the tables until you stop tilting :) It's one of the worst forms of tilt, when you shoot at higher limits in a bad state of mind.

      Hey!

      This is a very central issue among many pokerplayers. Many will argue that keeping emotions in schack and not tilting is where the real skill is in poker. I am not one to argue against that.

      Have you taken a look at this thread?

      +++Q&A with Jared Tendler!!+++

      It's a really excellent thread and I can assure you you will not regret reading through it. It has helped me see things clearer aswell.

      Good luck!

      Kind regards,
