Are there any methods that people use to make themselves slow down and think? Maybe counting to 3 before they make a decision or even talking the hand out out loud?
I get this exact same problem,
I make most my money in the first couple of hours, then I start to get lazy and impatient I dont think everything through unless im playing great and running good without a big pot lost.
something that helps me is questioning to myself why would he be raising , whats my image on this table, what hands could he be holding, is he good enough to rep a hand or just clicking bet.
if you have a notepad label this on your laptop/screen.
ask yourself why your making the action your about to make s0 - WHY
think what is your image how have you played. so - WHAT
and thirdly ask yourself how can I win this pot - is he commited? can I take him to the turn and see what he does. how much equity do i have - so HOW
a little lable
