Ever Feel You Forgot How To Play Poker?
I have a steady upward profit graph (of course with the normal up spikes and down spikes of variance), and feel pretty confident in my poker ability. I played earlier today and hit a hot streak where I made about $15 in an hour multi-tabling 5/10c (I usually average around $6 an hour). I went to eat dinner, came back, and went on the most horrendous cold streak I've seen in quite some time. Lost about $20 within half an hour. I've had my share of tilt but I didn't really tilt (at least not like I normally do), I just started second-guessing every single move I made, and just felt like I'd forgotten how to play poker. Every check as soon as I hit the button I'd think of how I should have bet and every call I'd think it was a stupid call right after I made it. Had 2 sets busted in that time, one by two all-in calls with flush draws on the turn (K high and A high) that hit (7 outs) and another where he flopped the straight to my set. Reflecting on it I don't think I made any horrible decisions, but I just can still feel that feeling, second guessing every single thing I did. Didn't know if anyone else had felt that way? Any way to get passed it other than to call it quits for the night?
