NOTE to self: Do not tilt

Well I thought I was even keeled until now. I just tilted away a buy in at the NL 200 tables at Martin's poker trying to chase some more bonus dollars. I think ill be down with that site when I get another 20 hands or so to get the next $20 bonus increment.

I was steaming when I was stuck $50 for losing a TPTK hand to AA. Then tried to bluff a couple pots and that didn't work so I was now down to $120 or so. I then flopped a open ended stright flush draw that didnt come in bringing me down to $90. The very next hand I get dealt 66 and hit a set on the most draw heavy board imaginable 6s7s8h.

Im only posting this so everyone can look at me, point and laugh. I deserve it. I had the button so EP bet 7, MP raised, I went all in, EP folds, MP flips over the nuts. I knew he had it but could bring myself to fold, all I was thinking was that I wanted to get even and I knew I had outs if the board paired. That is the worst logic imaginable to make a play like that. It admits that your beat therefore you should fold. Not this GUY <------

My fold Equity is zero because the guy represented strength by reraising, I should let it go, not think ill be even after this hand. I do not know if I can handle play NL200 if I cant get my head straight. I know my game is ready but one mistake is very costly to make, and I hate variance.

I will take a step back and stick to NL 200 on party when I can use poker tracker, I don't have access from the computer im playing on now.

DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL
DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL
DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL
DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL
DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL
DON'T TILT OR YOU WILL DONK OFF $200 OF YOUR BANKROLL

Good luck at the tables

Happens to everyone... I had your thoughts in my head last night but couldn't give up KK on a river push.... ouch that hit me for $114.

Remember that you will catch guys in a similar manner a few times.

Did you play in the blogger event last night?

unfortunatly I did not play in the blogger event. I was thinking about it but after the loss of $200 I decided I wasn't in the frame of mind to play my "A" game. I managed to win a 10 + 1 SNG to bring my nights loss to $160 which I feel much better about.

Did you play?

How did you finish if you did?
