Throwing away 24 straight hands is alot? I've played a 180player and played nothing prior to Hand#51. None of the other players on the table got upset, lol. Some began to laugh at me though. I told them to wait & see. They called me donk.. fish... moron.. etc. On the final table when I KO'd the last of them, I said "Thank-you...great game. Did you happen to learn anything?" I actually placed 2nd in that one but there was only one player left on the final table from my earlier tables (the former C.L. lol).
I watched my wife play a SNG tonight on Stars. She blinded down to less than 1100 chips, played 3 hands and when it was bubble time she was sitting in 2nd on a nice stack. She won!
As far as basing my choice of playing in regards to whether or not I'm on a good run or not..... I never ever do this. Anytime I play poker I try to go in there with my best game period. If I'm not up to par (at least 90%.. mainly being whether or not my head is clear or not and I don't have anything emotional, troubling or bothersome weighing me down) I just don't play. Otherwise.. I play as usual.
IF I'm running bad 'AND' I let it get to me, THEN I just stop playing (this is in reference to MTT & SNG play which is mostly what I play).
