When you stagnate in a MTT Tourney
Hey all I mainly just lurk been on and off poker for about 5 years now have hit my stride making some good reads and plays..
And my BR is now increasing quite rapidly since I now have decided to stick to one format which is the 9 man SNGs, with 40% ITM and 60% more firsts then anything else.
However now what do I wanna know is how do you maintain your A game through long periods.. I mean hell I was playing close to my optimum for the 6 hours I endured but eventually got fed up and imploded after once being 2k in chips when blinds were getting high, to going no where.. I wasn't hitting flops, wasn't getting cards, wern't even many spots to steal blinds, I however managed to maintain my stack.. on about 90k for 3 hours... and then once I knew people were tightening up I got 2 agro blew half my stack on a bluff the ran into kk a few hands later and blew up.
Do you mentally tell yourself the dos and donts? Cause I am lost as I've noticed its becoming a pattern then I sooner or later eventually implode focused on others rather than myself and made an ill timed bluff which if I decided to refrain myself, who knows coulda gone much much deeper..
So anyone wanna share a few tips, I have no problems with long sessions in general its just when a session is on one game...
Thinking maybe next time don't even look at the lobby, don't even worry about the average stack, nothing. just focus on my chips, people at my table and the cards.
