re: Poker & How to attain discipline in online poker?
For me, I play a much looser game now, so my losses are usually down to me mis-reading an opponent or failed bluffs. Personally, these are so much easier for me to deal with than suck outs. I tend to see less suckouts now, as my WTSD% is so much lower and people know they will have to pay big to hit outs and see a showdown, so don't seem to fish as much against me.
I dont know what it is about a worse player beating me, purely by luck, but I just find it really hard to accept. Ive jumped stakes a few times too. Notable ones being 5NL to 25NL and 10NL to 50NL! Luckily I won most of it back those times, but I know next time wont be third time lucky. Ill be really disappointed with myself if I jump stakes again, because its just plain stupid.
You absolutely need to stop entering this "maniac mode" otherwise you'll never be very successful at poker. Have you done much reading on tilting? The first signs of tilting being; feeling hot/increased HR and then berating opponents. Whenever I experience any of these I close PokerStars
. I know im not good enough to play on, in that state yet.
Im not sure what you mean by doing nothing stupid for x number of hands. You should never be doing anything stupid, and should be disciplined all the time, you never know whats going to happen next hand.
