I tilted really bad last night but got lucky in the end ADIVCE NEEDED PLEASE
Wow...I'm mad with myself. I really thought I had my tilt under control and hadn't really tilted for a long while but really need some advice now.
I was playing the micros $0.01/$0.02as normal and think I had around 7 tables up which is the normal amount.
I was grinding for 2hours or so and played around 2k hands and was up around $2.00 and then in the matter of 5minutes I'd lost a massive $10.00 which is a lot for micros..
I wouldn't of minded if I felt I was being or outplayed but I don't believe I was. It wasn't the standard Aces, being cracked it was much worse and weirdly it was in 2 of the tables where I made most money that night. I buy-in for 100BB\s and keep it at 100BB at all times but these 2 tables I'd hit $5-$6 on each and both got stacked of against stacks of the same sizes.
My full house on one was beaten by a higher fullhouse, the worse of it was he called my raise preflop with some garbage but hit the nuts.The second was I raised in position 7BB with A,K suited. This guy called with 8,J OS..Flop was 9,10,K.I bet pot sized, he called. Turn was another King. I raised pot size again, he re-raise me all in. I thought hmm and called anyway expecting maybe K,Q at best and prepared myself for him having J,K full but just didn't wanna get away and still had confidence I had best hand and maybe he was on a draw. He shows over J,8 and the river is a Queen! He wins with the straight. It was something like that I quickly logged of because I was fuming..
Then bad play by me and calling raises I shouldn't of been doing and my money was dwindling away slowly but surely and I was down $15.00 in the space of 15minutes. All my hard work and this would take ages to "fix" I got really bad feeling about it and logged of from the lowest and loaded up 3 x $0.02/$0.05 and 3 x $0.05/$0.10.
I knew I was tilting but just couldn't help it I was so mad still.
Anyyyyway, I managed to win an all-in pre flop for $10.00 when I had queens and was re-raised allin I called probs knowing I was up against Aces,Kings but didn't care at this point. I was indeed up against Kings and I got lucky and hit my Queen for trips. This put me back in with a chance and I was only $5.00 down from my bad beats but kept playing when I should of just left and calmed down. I lost a $6.00 pot and won a few small ones etc and again found myself $10.00 down when I pick up 6'6s in early position and just limp. I had $15.00 stack at this point and the other guy had $16.00.. and I'll let the hand show you how it went.

Now at this point I was happy but felt I was very lucky in the end to recoop my losses and don't intend doing this again and would love some advice on how to deal with this shit. I ended the day up $10.00 and was very thankful because at one point I was willing to nearly donk of all my bankroll..I thought when he raised all-in he had some sick straight and this would of sent me over the edge and would probarly be on here telling you now that I'd lost all my bankroll and how sick I was.
ps: I must point out I LOVED playing these limits so much more fun and the pots are huge but I was definitely playing with scared money as my BR is only $150.00 but I love the huge pots and action here and found it most enjoyable even before my "big" 30 dollar win when I took down $4.00/$5.00 pots with nothing and these sort of pots are pretty much un heard of in micros.
Thanks in advance.
