      I understand how you feel man. Some days no matter what you do, things will just end bad. Last two days I played flopped top set with pocket AA and lost full stack both times. Had to fold river with AA on KJ flop another time yesterday. Yet again lost full stack with AA yesterday when villain calls me down with bottom pair of 5's (called my open raise with 45s from SB). He hit runner runner 4,4 says "bluff" and raise-shoves river and I make a sort of bad call...

      If you feel like you need a break then that is definitely a good move. Can't let the bad feelings ruin the fun of the game.

        Hey Jimmy.

        Hey Jimmy, a self exclusion can not beat variance, good BRM and schedule can.

        I do not know your amount of play or your BRM use, but several factors have to be considered.

        1. If you played poker at almost a constant, you will always lose.

        2. If you start to stress over one beat, then all beats seem painful.

        3. If more than 5 percent of your BRM is been invested, in any given game, this is not good.

        4. If you play MTT's you have a lot more player variance.

        5. If the person you are playing against has a huge BR, they may not care and call you anyway.

        6. The fish will call you

        7. your own table image is more important than their image.

        8. Fundamental mistakes are raising the wrong person,sometimes pot control is the importance.

        9. Brutal self examination

        10. If you feel thrustrated in any way, argument with the wife,
        kids playing up, hungry, thirsty e.t.c.,
        do not play.

        11. Impossible to handicap a player, and you know I have looked into this and all aspects.

        12. Over confident and not beleiving is bad at times, opp dependable.

        13. Exceptancy is the final hurdle

        Get some free play in, join a home club, take away the stress, it is the stress of trying to win, that makes you lose.

        Bring back the fun side to your game.

        Enjoy it, not so serious, stay low level buyins so you can donk a donk, and the loses of BR are minimal.

        Remeber on a cash table, people will go all in and call all ins more than in a tourney. They can get knocked out of a tourney, a cash table, new chips and donk you.

        Look at the Psychology side, learn what they think and how the fish thinks. You no longer will care then about beats, and will just laugh it off.
