  • Good losing session

    Hello all, I've just had a losing session at the cash tables. So what. leep: Well, I lost 3 hands all in to 2 outers on each occassion, but was well ahead when I made the decision to commit. But I now have notes on 3 different opponents who are prepared to risk their chips with inferior holdings. They may be thinking that their decisions have been justified by the fact that there are more dollars in their pockets right now but long term...........moke: More importantly I saved $20 with good lay downs post flop holding strong hands. These plays went to the river so again I was able to analyse the play of my opponents, the final outcome and constructively analyse my own play. My point is and it has been repeated on this forum many times, and I'm probably telling many of you how to suck eggs, but my decisions turned a disaster session into a minor losing session, with the bonus of new information and notes. And it is the DECISIONS that counted not the losses incurred. So don't do this or this (yeah I know it hurts bad sometimes) but try this instead Good luck to effsea trying to maximise his prize and Ed with his pokerthon this weekend. Enjoy PSO'ers! nv

      Can this be a sticky? Or better yet a PM bomb to like half the forum (or better)? Great post nv. umbup:

        Every time you have a bad beat, it means you made the correct play.

        (Just make sure that it really is a bad beat)
