Such periods happen to everyone, some go to other limits, take a break or try to play in a new style. What is better to do if this happened.
do not agree new style not enough information did you get in well? was there a mistake made in the hand? if not continue to play how you play.... honestly bad beats just happen move on
also prefer to keep playing and not pause. Although I begin to play more carefully, I do not lose my game practice.Hey tick, the OP wasn't making a statement/offering advice, I'm pretty sure they were asking a question but just didn't put a question mark at the end!
gallora, if you realise that you're on tilt, taking a break is probably the best thing to do until you stop steaming, otherwise you might lose your bankroll really fast! When you talk about some players going to other limits, I reckon you can split those players into two camps: the first camp is players who ARE on tilt because they've had some losses (because of bad play and/or bad luck) so they play HIGHER limits that they can't comfortably afford, to try and recoup their losses quicker. Those players are making a big mistake, they're likely to find themselves down to the felt before too long. The second camp is players who have had some losses but respect and follow basic Bankroll Management guidelines, so drop down to lower limits to make sure the game is still comfortably affordable for them with their particular size of bankroll. Those players are far more likely to build their way back up to the higher limits, and those players are almost certainly NOT on tilt! By the way, I agree with tick's advice that, if you've been playing well and making good decisions but are losing a lot simply because of bad luck with the cards, there's no need to change your playing style, just be patient, stick with it and, sooner or later, variance will even out and you'll get back to winning. Good luck at the tables, and have fun!
