Run over by a truck

I've just had my worst session. Ever.

Found some fish at 2/4 and 3/6 on Eurolinx. One in particular was 90/45 I kid you not, and he was calling down to the river most hands. I had perfect position on him on two different tables, and he sucked out on me hand after hand.

I played long after the whale had left with tables that were loose on the whole. I don't think I played that well, identifying a number of mistakes at the time. On the other hand I don't think I played so badly either. I seemed to be getting into a lot of tough positions - my raises got no respect and I frequently faced three bets to my raises or raises to my bets. I called down thin and ran into monsters, or folded and felt like I was being run down. It's a horrible feeling and I suppose is the beginnings of tilt.

It was a massacre: $300 dumped in quick time. I guess in the context of downswings, that one isn't so bad (50-60BB) - but wow it still hurts.

You know what tilt feels like and over time the memories of remorse when we don't respond to it by getting up from the table get more tangible.

As with all other lessons, your modest (in the grand scheme of things) nightmare will have benefits for a lifetime.

Go get 'em (when your mind is back in equilibrium), in the meantime, run over the 10c/20c game!
