      I've identified something that loses me a lot of money. If there's any action after I've made a continuation bet, I can't fold and sometimes go all in with nothing... Is there any mantra or something I can keep in mind when I get into that situation.

      "dont go all in with nothing" should suffice?

      Is that a leak?!

      Well, what the heck have I been doing all this time?? No wonder I had to remortgage the house. :rolleyes:

      Maybe "Don't call an all in with nothing" is better?

      it's a very complex problem and the solution is hard to find

      have you tried not doing it?

      actually don't stop doing it because what good would folding be if you don't win

      this is quite a pickle we got ourselves in

      No, I want you all to magic the problem away with no effort on my part.

      I just folded after somebody raised my bluff.

      It's a start...

      I used to have the same thing when i first started out, you need to just let go of AK/AQ if you miss, don't get married to hands.

      Unless you are in some very remote place for a very long time like a military assignment.

      Then you will have to marry your hands.

      Is someone a "Colbert Report" fan? If not, this is spooky as he married his hand yesterday so as not to commit adultery... it's a great show. :f_love:

      @OP: All poker is an exercise in discipline: BRM, hand selection, game selection, seat selection, bet sizing, deciding on a line. Do you exercise any discipline in respect to other aspects of your game?

      The only suggestion I have is examining how much you lose with play you've identified as a leak. If that doesn't provide any motivation to stop I'm not sure what will.

      American satire.

      It has its moments but no I did not see him marry his hand.

      He was running for president last time I saw the show.


      Wow that was a while back. I didn't know they had TV in NZ.

      They do! It's awesome. We've got three whole channels. It's 95% re-runs of Rock of Love Bus though. :f_frown:
