      This hand has tilted me more than any hand I can ever remember playing. I'm taking a break from poker for the rest of the day, this hand just ruined my mental state to continue playing without being on tilt. I wouldn't be able to fold a pair ever again today. Worst thing is if I hadn't doubled up right before this hand I would never have folded. Now I curse the idiot who doubled me up. I'll go smash something with something hard, meanwhile, tell me how bad I played this.

      Never mind my tilt, I went back to playing an hour later and went up another $150... Though I did play a little steamy, a miracle that I won.

      Your fold wasn't bad, your check after 3betting was horrible, though. You put yourself in that tough spot.

      Yeah, but I should also have paid attention to the fact that I was in the pot with a maniac and a calling station. Thus never fold overpair unless the calling station makes a big raise. Playing 16 tables I mixed them up and folded to the maniac's big raise.

      This, and deer in the headlights syndrome. Seems you got a bit shy about having ~250 BBs on the table - if this is true, whenever you get close to 250BBs pull off that table and sit somewhere else.

      You need to be able to play the pot as it deserves in every situation. As it stands, $62 deep with KK on that board vs a maniac... you should have been jumping for joy as you bet into him on the flop. Bet-shove unless the calling station shows a raise.

      By playing check-call-fold you just let him walk away with your pot. Conservatively our maniac has 93, Qx, 33, 99-QQ, JT, 78 here - that puts you ahead 65-35. Bet-jam and take your chances - or get off the table before you are put in a position to play scared-money poker.

      don´t know why you checked on that dry board, but against small bet and c/r I would likely just shove flop, since your hand is quite strong, utg+1 has there 15$ left and can easily have the worst hand and UTG+1 small bet and just call rather seems that he has there Qx or draw

      Obviously I should have gone broke there against those donks. I think I play too many tables at once to focus on opponents. The monitor being small and forcing me to stack doesn't help either.
      But, helps me clear the deposit bonus...
      Maybe I can cash out some and buy a new screen once that is done :D

      Of course the maniac had A high and the station had AQ in this hand... Monkey tilted me.

      yeah it never helps to cash out and invest some at your equipment.
      Also if you can´t follow the action it is better to play fever tables.
