Used to just play at FT and now have recently signed up to PS.
I was wondering for those who play multiple sites. When you are running bad on one do you find that you can switch sites or does the bad run seem to follow you?
Seems like if it follows me then it's more my play than a bad run. Just curious if switching helps?

Well your next hand is your next hand Regardless of what site your on. There all random. It may follow you, it may not, no good way to really answer that question. But during a bad run a mind change can be worth a ton! If moving to a different site or game allows you to do a mental restart of sorts, DO IT!!!!! Playing good and running bad is better then playing bad and running bad anyday.

I've had bad runs follow me to different sites, different games, whatever.
I think a lot of it is in the mind, and sometimes a break or major nit play is the only thing that helps.

Mentally, it can help to switch sites. You can use the switch as a restart of your game. It's just like when I'm playing golf and things aren't going well. I will switch to a different swing thought just to try something new, fresh.

re: Poker & Do Bad-Runs follow you from Site to Site?
^^^This, I don't know if it is that there is a different mindset but I find a change in scenery helps.

Mindset. Definitely mindset. I had a long dry spell, then I cashed in 4 SNGs in a row. I played in my monthly live tournament with a $80 buy in and took 2nd for $360. I came home and I'm hittin good on the cash table. If you feel it that's half the battle.
