    So your game goes downhill when you're winning, and you tilt when you're losing

    This game isn't for you. Play for a maximum of one hour a day and find something else to fill your remaining time.

        I think Darkmans right but this advise goes to me aswell, i started to play to much and i,m getting careless, bringing your A game to the table requires focus, something that i have let slip a little.
        Especially after playing on 16 tables the other night, that just made my brain bleed lol.So i'm having a lil break to get my hunger back.

          There is some good advice from Darkman.

          Based on your comment, there is a certain point where you go on tilt regardless of your position. When you're ahead, you donk. When you're behind, you tilt. These two situations are the same, a total loss of control. Bankroll theories cannot help since the trigger isn't money.

          The solution is to set a money / time limit and hold to it. You leave when the time is reached or the stakes exceed some specific amount. Start your clock at one hour and see if you hit that donk/tilt point. If you are still not hitting this point after five sessions, increase it half an hour. First time you hit that point, cut it back.

          Players here are primarily multi-table. They work upward from the one to as many as they can comfortably handle. Same principle with your clock. Eventually you will learn the control that keeps you acting like an ATM on the table.

          If you find time too restrictive a constraint, consider a stake percentage. Whenever you increase your stake by a specific amount or percentage, take an hour offline. The tables are always here and better coming into the game ready to play than on the verge of self destruction.
