This is a discussion on What to do after so many bad hands??? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; in my case, it stops everything and I get upset.
is that you? What would you do ??:jd4:
When I don't get good cards I try to play with the bad hands but I don't invest a lot of money so I play more cautiously and try to be patient until I get a good hand to try to double down at the table.
Many times I am angry too, but this is usually the case when I have a bad day. Most of the time, I accept if the opponent wins at the last minute. If Iím very angry, I stop and do something else, something less stressful.
I understand you. But you can't let that effect your game.
Also, when you do not open hands for a long time, you will have a tight image on your table, what can resulting you to open more hands by getting called less often.
When the game is not going on, moving with a normal map and from a position, I also get upset, I close poker, I start analyzing my game, if there were any mistakes that could be corrected. If, as a result of introspection, I come to the conclusion that I did everything right, then I do other things. If I still see my mistakes, then I write down in my notebook what was wrong in order to remember and not repeat later.
I would advise:
1. take a break from poker
2.do what you enjoy like reading, movies, hobbies
If you want to make money with poker, you need to think rationally.
Everyone has bad periods, which is absolutely normal, as well as the luckier ones.
Imagine if you always win at poker - isn't that boring?
I would be bored and I would abandon it.
I understand you perfectly, because I, too, used to be upset, just like you.
Don't try to be what you're not.
You cannot fail unless you quit.
It comes with the territory i guess. We all take hard hits sometimes, we just gotta get back up get get back at it. I don't even think about the loses anymore, its like a buzz kill. I don't get mad, I get even..lol. The wins will start coming back at some point. Good luck and have fun grinding. 🍻
Step back and review previous hands that have made a pivotal impact on your profits. Take time to study more and play less, use the same amount of total time involved in the game just shift the balance. Finally remove the emotions from your game.
