doing, is not watching the blow by blow falling of the turn and river cards, when
im allin as a huge fav in a sitngo. I just click to another one of my tables and
leave it in the hands of the poker gods. seems to smart less that way when
they hit their 2 and 3 outers
I can relate.
I posted recently about an absurd run I had recently where I was losing a ridiculous number of 9:1 situations. People had a hard time believing me but it was true.
I would be watching the cards fall saying to myself 'no 2, no 2'.
When the 2 would hit (or whatever other card they needed to hit their set postflop when they had a smaller pair), I started to flinch violently.
I never got to the point where I hit things (ok, except the closet door once), but losing like that so many times was just so unbelievable it physically stunned me.
I actually got the same idea ........ I'm just not going to watch the cards fall!
Just an idea though. I figured if I get to the point where I have to cover up the cards as they fall, I should probably look for another game.
