Just giving some people a suggestion or two about avoiding tilting.
What I have done recently is started keeping of my stats by week (manually, in an excel spreadsheet). Just keep track of my beginning bankroll on Monday, and then my ending bankroll on Sunday. It has helped me to kind of keep my mind in the bigger picture a little bit, especially in times when I am losing for the day, but am still up on the week.
When I started playing, my biggest problem was that I tilted a ton
. I was definitely beating 5NL overall, but when I had days when I would lose 2 buy-ins in a row (which is common, and happens to good players too!), I would go crazy. I would say to myself, "I used to have $70 and now I only have $60!" So then I would go try to win it back in blackjack
or something, and ultimately end up blowing my bankroll.
For me anyways, it helps to keep an eye on the bigger picture. If you're struggling with the same thing (feel like you're winning 75% of your sessions, but tilting a whole bankroll away when you're losing), I would definitely suggest something like this.
