Hi Soldier. I think we all "take a shot" every now and then - If your are a mid/ low stakes player, its a bit of a dream to hit it big and win the big one, possibly by running good, good play or shear luck. However, the down side is that it never works or perhaps it does, one in a million!!! Poker stress is only bought on by ourselves, we cause it so the only way to get over it is to walk away and leave it alone for a while. Try to forget the stress and remember your good plays/ sessions and work out what happened to you and why it did. This is how we learn to improve our game but also how to minimise the effect stress has on us. The difference between us and "top" professionals, apart from the money is how they deal with the stress, they have it as well they just treat it different. Like some of us, they know how to "double bluff", "triple barrel" or "5 bet" or any other play you can name, but they treat the stress as a play so have a way of playing against it.
Gl and thats enough rambling from me.........................
