I posted a thread a while back it was called ' I Feel like quitting poker '
I had run up against so many brick walls and idiots calling all-in with 3-4 os, that i was getting very disallsuioned. And to be honest i was totally up from walking away from playing the game ,and to try and stick to running the games
I took a weeks holidays, now it just wasnt poker, it was my businesses as well. But since then ive taked things in perspective, you win most of the time, but you lose a lot as well. You need CLARITY of thought, if you win 60% of the time you will lose 40%, still a great return.
Poker is a game of both luck and skill, good hands and bad hands, hands that gave you the miricial card on the river, and that gave you a bad beat.
We, as people tend to remember and dwell on the bad things ang tend to forget very quickly the good things. Rember the time your QQ took down AA. Dont think so............ Rember the time YOUR AA was beaten by QQ (I still have nightmares)
BTW .. If ye cant tell, im on my 6th pint of the black stuff
