Idk about the majority of players but i have found that i prefer to play live cash games during the weekdays as opposed to the weekend for one simple reason. When you go play on the weekend there are so many donkeys with endless pockets playing at the 1/3 with basically unlimited buy ins. Although it can be lucrative to play against these kind of players, it can also be dangerous. For the most part they call every bet and they absolutely refuse to fold. They also play every single hand they are dealt. Its like impossible to win when say you get kings or aces and raise huge pre flop and they will still call with rags and end up hitting the flop with the absolute nuts. It has happened to many times. Or they flop nothing at all except some kind of backdoor draw, call every bet on each street and end up sucking out on you. Thats why i prefer to play against better players who know what they are doing because at least they know when they are supposed to call, fold, or raise. You cant bluff someone who doesn't know what a good or bad call.
what's your poker goal playing ring games? to win, or lose? yeah everybody, at least once in their lives has gotten sucked out on! so does that mean you'll never play pocket aces again? the most money I've ever won was off donkey's. that's why they call em donkey's. gimme donkeys and I'll wait for a premium hand, and pray they call and play with rags. just because variance caught up with you big deal. and if you steam after that, then maybe poker ain't your game. focus and emotions have to checked at the door, or else your no different than the donkey's.No less then Doyle Brunson said the object of poker isn't to win, it's to make the best decision for the situation. go get a good emotions coach cause it looks like they really got to you
