re: Poker & How to adjust from Tournament play to cash games?
I have the exact same probelm.
One thing that I have to do is walk away from the tables for the night after I profit in a MTT. I hit plenty of hot cards to get through the tournament and place, and eventually I am going to hit a run of cold cards. If I hit a run of cold cards then my top pair automatically looks like gold, and I try to force my game rather than letting the game come to me.
If you feel a need to continue playing after hitting in an MTT, take half of your profits to the SnG's. You've already had good fortune in tourneys for the day, maybe you can continue your hot streak in a SnG. If you don't place in the SnG's, at least you are controlling your BR swing, and you are not losing any more than half of you profit.
For me, it is not a matter of not changing my style of play to adapt to the type of game. I also play at the micro tables, and they are nothing more than calling stations. Micro tables require more luck than skill, and you will get called on everything. You have to play very tight and only bet on hands such as straights and flushes, because it seems like they hit on every hand.
Anyways, just wanted to offer some advice.
