      Hi psichic13,

      As unhappy it makes me to see that you are having a bad run at the tables I am really, really impressed that you have decided to take a break!

      It really is the first step in turning the tide and unfortunately many people tend to not do so and go busto very shortly after.

      As for suggestions on what to do during your break, you could always:

      :diamond: Re-read all articles available to you in your chosen game
      :diamond: Watch videos available to you in your chosen game
      :diamond: Analyse your Hand Histories if you have a HUD

      You could always take a few days away from all things Poker before following the above steps :)

      I hope you can recover from the bad run and I really hope to see you return and crush the tables.


      Wishing you the very best,


      Gary

      Best free advice i can give to someone who is tired of poker. I always say, if your mind and body is not 100%, you can't play any form of 'gamble'.

      So true Nathan, could not agree more with you.

      P.S. It's always so nice when you guys help each other out. This is why the English Community is so superb!

      Keep up the good work,

      Haha thank you for your opinion guys.

      Well Gary,its not the first time that I will take a break but it's the first one that I take it so seriously...Because I promised my self to play only serious poker,to learn stuff,and never be out of my bankroll limits...

      I think I will stop for 1-2 weeks.I will spend my time with SnG videos and articles.Unfortanuley I do not have a HUD but I will spend my other time with my friends :P ...I think this is gonna be enough to clear my mind and play some Pro poker again:P haha.

      what do you think?

      Have a break until you feel ready, don't set a time span as you will constantly be thinking: "ok, my mindset needs to be good in 2 weeks tops".

      It can get better even quicker if you just relax. And also, get a HUD. Elephant, PT3 or HEM. All of them are great, i'd advise Elephant 'cause it's free.

      But both PT3 and HEM have trials, so it goes by your own preference.
