These days it doesn’t take much for me to become totally tilted…I think I really should take a break, like I already said on twitter. I acted against my own advise and played some today and it didn’t take long to get tilted again. First I got tilted in NL HE as a calling station dumbsack couldn’t do much wrong, hitting miracles left and right. I threw away the next match. Then I switched gears and played an Omaha MTT. The ultimate tilter. I held my ground and was among the chipleaders for most of the way. Then a hand came down were I flopped the nuts and lost (the main pot, but won the sidepot). If I win that pot I’ve got 7-8x the current average. Instead I lose the mainpot, but I’m still in the top 10. The break comes up. A few hands after the break I’m out on a total tilt move – after losing 2 small pots in a row I push my stack in with air and obv get called…I’m still wondering what made me go over the edge on that one…I guess it was the sum of all the bad hands before that, I just couldn’t take it anymore…but what do you expect in an 8$ four card bingo MTT? Nevermind raising big coming in, you’ll get called anyway. Get to see a lot of flops cheaply, flop the nuts and get payed off – unless you get unlucky. Easy…if you got the patience and can keep a cool head. Both of the latter ran out on me after slightly over an hour. Sick. Oh well, I can’t beat myself up too much about it…and this time I’m sticking to my own advise. I won’t play another hand over the weekend. De-tilt 101. I’m outta here…
