Poker is that sometimes we win a lot of money, sometimes we lost but we must play always our A game, I know with a downswing we lost confidence, we normally easy get in tilt... But we need to win the tilt, the downswing and always play our A game, for example if we have a big downswing normally a lot of people plays a bigger tournament or a bigger sit and go, because they think they will win and win and get back to upswing, that's wrong, when this happen we need to player smaller buy ins.. example but this player plays the regular shedule of him without reduce the buy in:
-Friend of pokerstars
Jaime Staples he had a big downswing but he never lost confidence and always playing the sames tournaments, this weekend he final tables the sunday warmup for 22k.... This is a good example of "in long term the good players always wins"
But if u think that you're not playing your A game simple take a break, some days to have fun with your friends and family and recovery your confidence and return more stronger than ever and beat the downswing... Good luck
