A little tilt

Played for 45 mins last night and finished down $45 at $1nl.Stopped playing as I realised I was tilting.More of a subtle tilt than the Juices all out psycho tilt but tilt all the same.The kind of night where I call a small raise with Ax suited and have to fold to a flop bet.Next time I fold my AX suited and of course my flush hits.I need to keep remembering the continous shuffling of the virtual deck and that if I had called different cards would have fallen.

At least I recognised it and stopped playing.I need to forget where my bankroll was and concentrate on playing each hand correctly.Not getting much in the way of decent cards either but I'm not kidding myself thats the sole cause of my downward swing in the last few days.

I'm going to play a few sng's tonight to get back into the swing of tourney play before tomorrow nights 888.com final to qualify for the UK Poker Open.

Booked up 16 nights in Gran Canaria for Mrs A and me in September.We're going to the same hotel we went to 2 years ago just outside the fishing village of Mogan.Really looking forward to getting away and recharging the batteries.

Got my away game allocation through from Rangers.My season ticket gets me into all the home games but they have to ballot for away games because apart from our rivals no other ground in Scotland holds 50000.I was lucky and got a ticket for the game against them in November.I was there last year when we beat them at their place for the first time in 5 years and was hoarse for about a week afterwards.7500 of us and 50000 of them and we still out sing them every time."Stand up for the Champions!".

Well the back grass is cut and the trampoline ready to be assembled.Off to buy loads of soft drinks in for the invasion of the little people.I don't mind that but they'd better remember that it might be Step A's birthday present but I paid for it and I'm bigger than them and if I want a shot they'd better get in line....

That holiday sounds pretty good. I like the gran caneria. A bit of sun and sea does wonders. They also have casinos! ;-)

I dont know dont read your blog for two days and come back and there is just woe after woe. What is happening! That QQ flush thing on your previous post sounds nasty.

Win the pot or milk your opponents for value? Its tricky. Winning the pot isnt the point of poker its about money. But if you dont win the pot you dont win anything pot or money. Try to maximise value and you risk someone hitting a draw and beating you. In NL i always like having a 4 flush. with 3-1 odds to complete its great for taking down hands.

As i was telling a guy today

Sometimes you are the pigeon and sometimes you are the statue!

Doyle Brunson said yesterday in the paper that you should never fear losing your bank roll. Be agressive and be fearless. Easier said than done though!

What do you find that you start playing defensive poker when the cards dont run and you get hit on a hand? or do you stick to your A game?

Thanks for the comment Juice.You think I should change my blog name to Little Statue man? lol

I think any casino visits whilst on holiday would result in me taking a very long walk off a short pier...

I do usually manage to stay on my A game even in the face of bad beats.Most of the time anyway....

Cheers,
Little Acornman
