any other suggestions or other help?
thank you in advance,
Hello Seth, I have the same problem or should I say I had.
What I found out was the reason I was suffering such swings was a lack of discipline and patience, I had started to get bored with the limits I played and started moving up in limits too soon just to experiment(Or so I told myself)or would start changing my style of play to force the action which would almost always end badly.
The reason I found I did this was to try and make a quick buck and soon realized that this type of play was a mistake and have not gone back to this type of playing again.
As for the games to play, play the micro-limit SnGs and shut the comp down when you start getting bored with the games.
With whatever path you choose grasshopper, remember that patience and discipline walk the path together.
