It’s not about the number of times you get beat down, it’s about the number of times you get up again…

Today was one of these days where there is a sick hand, then another one, then an even sicker one. The difference today though was my reaction to it. Instead of getting angry at “the dealer”, myself or my opponent I just shrugged it off, laughed and continued to play my game – after all I want my opponents to put their money in, all of it, when drawing thin. That being said, I quit small winner today…below some of the finer hands that went down…sometimes it really depends on when the money went in, take the 88 vs AA hand below for example: sure, best in best out, but when all the money went in – on the flop – he was drawing nearly stone dead…but hey…what can you do when you flop gin…put it in, hope for it to hold – this time it didn’t, the next 8-9 times it should 😉

Good luck at the tables…

i don’t know how you can play HU games without going insane. whenever i get HU in a sng, i just want to get it over with and play more aggro than i probably should. i guess i just don’t have the patience for it.

Well, tbh, the urge to donk-rejam the fonkeys comes over me, too – sometimes. But I try to minimize that by staying calm and keeping me distracted (playing multiple matches simultaneously)…but sometimes it even get’s to me…no doubt about it…it can be utterly frustrating at times…
