I agree and disagree. my strategy is able to beat the .1/.2 cent game, thats what where I disagree.
where I agree with you is that my play is not good enough to beat that game, my poker play is not all strategy it has a lot to do with my mind set. I have lost months of work of building a bankroll in a couple of hours because I could not stand up and see what is going wrong.
I mentioned it in the beginning, I will quote my self "from a bad swing, bad play then tilting the rest away"
if I lose most times I will quit the table, look at my hands see if am I doing something wrong? am I being outplayed? or is it just variance?
but then there is that one time where I just say f it then I lose most my bankroll in a couple of hours.
I will quote my self one more time "from a bad swing, bad play then tilting the rest away"
a bad swing leads to bad play, (bad play is far from tilting my money away). bad play leads to me tilting my money away. (trust me, this is not really bad play this is basically pushing with any two hoping that I will hit the 40% in a 60 40).
honestly, this post was created because I was annoyed and wanted to rant but I still wanted had some questions.
so honestly, you are right my play is not able to beat this game, which is something I need to fix, but which comes to my main problem is that I do not enjoy poker that much, its like 10% of what it was when I first started. why try to fix my play, my play means nothing right now, if I decide to continue playing poker then I will start trying to improve my play.
this was supposed to be a quick short response.
to everyone else: thanks for advice (especially the set goals and post replays of your hands). thanks for the posting to this thread.
it is about 4 in the morning so if my grammar or spelling is incorrect its because I am not in the mood to proof read it and even if I did I still probably miss all my mistakes because I basically been running on coffee.
