I look through the hands played and if there were no serious mistakes, then it means that a bad luck streak has just come. I play less time and spend more energy studying.

When you are in an extended session of bad beats or being card dead, what do you do? Go to another table, go to another site or stop for the day?
This happens so often that if I took a break I would probably never be playing,, my only solution change poker rooms

just keep playing your best poker, don't fall into tilt, don't run to recoup. This is something that doesn't depend on us.

The best thing to do is quit, if not permanently then for that day.

I usually try to stop for a time, take some break from playing - just to reset the bad run from your brain. Then simply start play again.

I get angry when my game has bad moments for days in a row. In the first phase I don't play for about 3-5 days, if after this small break it still hurts, I change my playing style for 2 days, I play hands that I usually avoid, most of the time I recover like that.

I try to stay calm. Sometimes I achieve it, sometimes not :)

before making a decision i usually do around 50 push ups to clear my mind, a bit of physical exercise does wonders :D

I prefer to stop the game and take a break, that helps me calm down and plan a new strategy for another day, we already know that you don't always win in poker.

when I'm having a bad day, lots of bad beats, I stop playing and go do something that cheers me up that has nothing to do with poker, just so I recover and play better another day

considering the amount of people playing, you have to understand that you won't always be awarded.
Based on this premise, I don't believe that spending time without winning has any meaning beyond something statistical.
bad days, I just turn it off and go do something else.
tomorrow there's always more.:sneaky::sneaky::sneaky:

Hi, friend!
I'm just taking a break. Try not to play poker for a while. Believe me, you will soon return to the game with renewed vigor)

it is frustrating indeed, what I do is play lower stakes and to not feel horrible even after losing or just stop for a while and come back some time later like a week after.

There are days when I am very unlucky. I just take a break for a couple of days and study.

I usually stop my session and go out for gym or a walk.
If when I'm back still tilted I don't play that day anymore

I try to go to another site. If the bad run continues, I quit for the day or only play freerolls.
