re: Poker & Cooler - psychological problem
Some aspects of poker are just out of your control. You have to shrug it of as just another facet of the game. There will always be some amount of chance involved. I know its especially annoying when you have that set and another guy will hit the full house, but you have to remember that these are going to happen to everyone. While it will suck to be on the receiving end of a cooler, it will feel really to be on the other side where you take some guy for all his chips. That's the thing about poker too, the more you play the more the odds
will catch up to you. So if you are a solid poker player and you are making the right decisions, the money will catch up with you.
