re: Poker & Recouping Losses
I get extremely anxious to break even on my losses from yesterday
You're focusing too much on short-term goals, along with the wrong things.
No matter how much money one makes playing poker, variance dictates that you are going have some days where you can make proper decisions and still lose your shirt...guess what, that's poker! Instead of changing your strategy in a hopeless mission to make back all of your losses in quick fashion, why not concentrate on examining why
you lost a sizeable amount of money the day before...along with why you were winning today?
Were you playing differently one day from the next? What mistakes did you make? Is there is a consistent leak in your game that needs to be fixed?
There ain't nothin' wrong with grinding your profits back up to where it once was - use a bad night to improve your game, and that will have more benefit in the long run.
