I haven't posted in awhile because I'm seriously on a bad run. Bankroll is fine but I'm just not winning. Today I had Ks cracked by 7s and As cracked by Js, among several other hands that I got in good and then had everything deteriorate into the ultimate poker player nightmare. My past four sessions have just been losing ones and that's not fun and it's not much worth writing about.
It's got me a little worried because I'm gearing up for my trip to Reno and I want to be playing my A-game. As a result, I plan to be working on my mindset hard in the upcoming days. One way I do that is by eating right, excercising, getting good sleep, and just taking a break from poker.
I'll lay off the games tomorrow and maybe Friday and get some studying in instead. I've got a big live game Saturday and then before you know it, it'll be time to head to Reno.
What kind of things do you all find helpful when you're experiencing a bad run?
I'll let you know how the studying goes and I'll share any tips on getting over bad runs here - if I figure any out. Hopefully the studying and downtime it will result in some improvement.
In the meantime, good luck at the tables amigos.
