Sounds like part of the leak righ there ^ (at least the easiest one you can do something about).
Something I'm noticing in your thread (aside from poker strat.) is... you say "I'm down 70cents ..... " When I'm playing cash tables, anytime my stack is below 100bb's I'm topping it up... I'm not focusing on whether I'm down this or up that (although 'up' is usuallyl easier to notice.. although I'm leaving a table as soon as it dries up.. ie. once the biggest fish or two give up & don't reload again). My goal isn't to just focus on being up a bit.. or down not too much... it's more about setting my opponent up during the session so that I'm stacking them (pretty much anyways).. I guess what I'm saying is... I'm going to play vs. villain(s) so that the one hand it's all getting in there (or the more than one hand hopefully)... I'm really,really, really wanting/wishing/hoping to play for stacks. That's what my goal is.. I want it all. You can hang onto 20, 40, 50, or 100 or more bb's for awhile but I'm taking it all (at least that's what my goal is). Maybe I need to showdown a bluff (or three), etc... who knows.. 'it depends'.
Maybe I'm way off base.... idk... just the impression I was getting from reading your posts.
