This is a discussion on Have you ever done amazing and then apparently your like let me mess up 😠 within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Played a free roll.I was doing pretty good. Good chip ups bad dips.
Had 30k chips, I think we started with 2500?
Anyways its 3 hours
Anyways its 3 hours in blinds are 500/1000 I'm playing great but tired and noticed some bluffs.
Some dude raises like 2500 cause he loves doing that and I had A3s I call hit my Ace, a queen is also on the board no flush draw. He bets 5000 i call cause I'm sick of his crap. He bets like 10k on the river I shove all in. He calls me he had 3 queens.
I'm an idiot and should have never gotten involved after I saw my flush wasn't going to hit.
I was tired intimidated by his 60k stack and my other opponents 100k stack.
No excuse. No hand analysis needed.
Bad play from a tired idiot.
I even played good after I bought in again after losing with a full house to a higher full house!!!!
I have many personnal stories that ends bad, believe me... But since reading a simple novel book on poker (no strategy talking, just a novel), I realized that it's better to just be sit out for 30 minutes when I start to feel tired than to force any play that may result in busting.
You may lose 3-4 BB along the way, but isn't it better than to lose your whole stack and be angry at you for playing poorly?

I think every poker players has situations like these where we're on great winning streaks in a tournament and then we blow half our stack on a dumb move that we wish we could take back. God knows I have plenty of examples... so just know you're not alone!
I have lost my cool plenty of times once I've made a run in a tournament. It really does suck so I empathize with you. One time I was the chip leader not too far from the bubble and in three hands I was out. All I had to due was fold my hands each time and I would have been in the money.
re: Poker & Have you ever done amazing and then apparently your like let me mess up 😠
I mean, who hasn't? Just the other day I was sitting on a very decent stack near the bubble and was making some profit by exploiting people trying to min cash. Then I get QQ and feel extra confident about stealing the blinds so I raise. Then I get reraised by someone with an even bigger stack than mine. Should have known he wouldn't do that without a monster but the greed was big in me so I reraised all in and got knocked out against KK.
Everybody does that at least once, the trick is to learn with your mistakes so you don't make them again.
