      Question >?>?>?>?>?>?>?>

      sit at the table, my favorite 6 max (multi table 4-6, when I was fit to 8 tables) with the previous finding most cost-effective tables with various datamining software, depending on the poker client (TableScanTurbo, FreePHG, SmartCol-V1-0-6, SpadeIT - Various)
      I have a good run say 7-12 days (the longest I've had 30 days)
      BB/100 around the 3
      VP $ IP 20%

      I can't really think of any unique advice for this. I just distance myself from the bad beats, and pat myself on the back for making the right decision, it was just unlucky they sucked out. Also, when you make a mistake, such as calling an all in and then sucking out on your opponent, don't feel good, make it clear to yourself that you made a mistake.

      Just don't take the beats personally, distance yourself and focus on playing your game and making the correct decisions.

      If you stop feeling so positive after you win and just pat yourself on the back and move on your brain won't register the loss as badly as it would of if you were leaping out of your chair, you see?

      Once you have neutral feelings about winning in poker your feelings towards losses will also become neutral. Master this and life will become tilt free! :f_biggrin:

      It's easier to say than to do, but do it a few times and it's as easy as saying it.

      Try it & gl
      WOW I love this reply, thumbs up!
