My Stupid play (tilt big time)
Haven't posted but maybe once, but I know several of you come here to blow off steam, so I'm gonna give it a got. The last couple of days I've been played real well in the FR's at ultimate Bet and Bodog. Haven't placed in the money, but close. I get lucky, play well, build a stack, then I get one bad beat and it throws me off completely. Then of course I get on tilt big time. Just like today. Playing the 500 FR at Bodog, got up to 25,000+ chips...I raise at least 3 times BB PF and am called. Flop comes, I have high pair, I make big bet, called, turn, no help, big bet, called. River, small card, seems to me to be no consequence, can't remember all the details, but I go all in, idiot calls and has something like 3/5 off suit and ends up with a straight. I believe I had A7 with 7 being the highest card on the board. So that drops me down to like 1200.
I worked my way back to 17,000, and just made another stupid call.....Man....ticked me off....
How do you keep from tilting?
And second, why do I seem to play better in the early rounds when the stakes are lower, and worse as the stakes & stacks get higher?
I know pretty vague, but thanks for listening...
