re: Poker & Losing confidence
I bought the Sklansky book "hold'em for advanced players" so started reading through that.
It's funny, I had been doing so well that I should have expected the odds
to catch up to me at some time.
I deposited $100 last wednesday and got it to $170 (at the 0.05/0.10 HE NL ring games) before the little $20 slide here the past day. I found myself getting gun-shy and blinded out, and thought to myself why am I acting allergic to the pot. Trying to not be result oriented is difficult I'm finding.
I'm trying to learn to play "correct" poker and play the long term odds, I should expect these swings I was just surprised at my reaction to losing a couple big hands.
