…so not much playing or writing about the game. Let’s just say that I went from good (W) to bad (L) to worse (Tilt-L)…what put me on a slight tilt was the second HU match I played.

Did you ever play a guy that has got to be a little leprechaun sitting right on his pot of gold? You dominate him and build your stack. Then you hit TPTK, he hits bottom set, you pay him off. You rebuild your stack. You hit top two, he hits middle set. You pay him off. You rebuild your stack. You hit a straight…he turns a flush…you pay him off…etc etc. Unbelievable. Well, it’s believable, it’s just what it is – he was on a rush and caught the cards when he needed it…

That shouldn’t be enough to put me on tilt and drop the next match within the first 10 hands though… 🙁

Maybe I should stop altering my game all the time. Did you ever start to do something similar (tweaking here and there all the time) when you’re running bad? I guess the answer is a “yup”…sometimes it’s a good thing, sometimes it’s not…in my case I think it’s bad. I lost my groove. Not groovy. Time to sit back, check some hand histories and re-focus on my original style of play…

Side note: Despite dropping some dough at the tables today, it was a good day. First of the month, friday, weekend, time to relax and catch up on sleep and the money kept coming in…gotta love those “You received a PayPal Payment” mails…thanks to all the good folks buying text-links and reviews on this humble little piece of web-estate 🙂
