hey man, i'm in the same boat as you. all i can tell you is to keep your head up and be patient... some things i'm telling you i NEVER do... which is why i keep struggling also... but the bad part is that i play good poker i just get mad when my chip stack doesnt go up as fast as everybody elses

re: Poker & RUNNIN BAD
Take a break... When you start out thinking that you're gonna lose, you will. It's stupid but true. And never play afraid to lose, cause then you're not playing your best game. A good book to read on downswings and poker psychology is "The poker mindset". Helps me a lot when i'm running bad. Good luck!

Exactly, take a break and do something else. For a few days if necessary. Asked for (somewhat) the same advice here a while back and got that answer, and its helped. If find that when i come back i have lost the sense that i cant win anything and just play normally. Also, the tilt is long gone.
