The decision to take a few days off was really good. Tonight I came back to the game and there was no tension or anything at all. I just sat down and played. If I win I win, if I lose I lose. Maybe changing up a little added to that feeling of calmness, too. I didn’t play the “high pressure” formats (six-handed and headsup), I played a 45ppl SnG instead, something that I hadn’t done in a loooong time. It worked out pretty well, too. Never lost my patience, which is pretty hard playing against such a load of loose donks in a turbo format, but I did it. I made the final table and when we were down to four (7ppl ITM), I was the shortest stack. I’m in the BB which is 1.2k at the time and I’ve got 5.8k behind. UTG folds…button raises to 4.8k. SB folds…action is on me…I’ve got a 49o…

Thought process: He’s on the button and could have ATC, I’ve probably got two live cards, I’ve got roughly 7k in total, that’s not even 6BB…I insta-call…he shows 53 s00ted….lol…turns out I even put my money in ahead…lol…he flops the world…but that didn’t matter…I played a good game and finally won some money again…no W…but a mental W…
