      i am not going to pretend that i am a great player and i know i've still got alot to learn but i have built up £20 dollars on pokerstars up to £220 over the last month or so (i dont get much time to play at the moment) but i was ill today so had a day in bed and thought i would have a go at playing a long session and see what happened.

      it seemed to be like this all day long and i ended up down about £120
      i couldnt win from ahead or behind and i must of won like 15% of my flips at the most. i guess this is nothing to most people and its just a day and a small sample but it is pretty depressing and i find it hard to stay positive and enthused about playing.... i guess i'm not confident enough in my game and that i'm not making some big mistakes... any advice or kind words welcome =]

      Whats type of game is this? Im assuming sng but losing a few flips is as standard as it gets. Happens to everyone every other day. If you can't handle a bad day like that you really have to work on your poker mindset.
