When we see that emotion or our ego disrupts our best performance, it's time to stop and analyze our decision-making as deep as possible. It's time to see if what we've done in the course of a tournament, or that cash game session, has been played in the best possible way or we've made a mistake in making things disastrous. Most of the time for me, it's harder to deal with my mistakes than with bad beats. I think most people go through this kind of situation... So it's always good to review a session, to identify our mistakes when we're not at our best. And you, what do you do when you realize that your emotion is overriding reason? Good luck at the tables!
I believe that in a game like poker, only positive emotions can have a good effect on your game and your results. Personally, when I play poker, I always get positive emotions and I think that due to this my bankroll is growing steadily.
re: Poker & Do you let your emotion overlap with reason?
To deal with emotions is very crucial for me nowadays , actually it's number one mission . I decided to take some lessons , follow some new rules , best of them when it happens in real time , when I feel frustration due to a hand or for whatever other reason , I will stop playing , sit out , go out and try to relax completely , try to see what happened and made me nervous , or even more angry , try to fix it , relax , gind nd imposethe solution , then come back and sit in , continue playing , without thinking how much time I ws sitting out , how many hands I lost , what hands , nothing at all , complete serenity . I have seen many players doing it , it is successfull , I seee others continue playing with tilt , catastrophic game , they lose all their stack sooner or later for tilt orrevenge reasons .
