      Hello,

      this is the last hand of a catastrophic session. Usually I can end bad sessions before tilt could hurt me....well....not yesterday... :(
      At the start of the hand, I was a bit steamy and the 'pressure' in my head rised continuously on every streat.
      On the flop I bet because I thought most of my opponents didn't hit this flop and if someone calls, I still have a combo draw and if I hit it, after the flop bet it's more likely that the opponent will pay me off. On the turn....well...I can vaguely remember I calculated that the implied odds should be 33.3% to make a call profitable and I called....don't ask me what I thought on the river...I can't remember anything, I was totally on tilt.

      I knew that on the river I threw 70 cents out of the window, but how about the other streats?

      Thanks!

      If you cannot play your A-game, quit that session and calm yourself :) That's the best remedy

      On the Flop I like your flopbet as a semibluff. On the Turn though I will follow up with a $0.65 cBet to fold out some of his range

      Check/calling leaves your vulnerable and I rather want to be aggressive than passive


      As played is the River pure speww with Ten high so just check/fold there

      Thanks Gerv,

      I've changed my stop loss limit from 4 buy-ins in a row to 3 in a row.....it seems that at the moment I can take only 3 coolers in a row without going on tilt..

      The turn bet would not help in this hand because he had a K but I'm sure it's better long term than ch/c. I'll do it next time.

      Best wishes!

      Yes do not be too results orientated, sure he sometimes hit his overcard but that doesnt happen too often. That's why it acts as a scarecard
