Feb so far..

Hi followers, just a little post to keep you all up to date. The first week over February has passed us by and it's been a struggle. Since I began recording the results for my main game, the $1.50 50fifty's, I've been on a bit of a downswing. Played around 50 so far and I don't think my ROI is positive yet, slightly afraid to work it out lol. If it's not been card dead it's been massive coolers and suckouts.

Hand like this have been the norm, pretty crazy.

As my main goal this year is just to improve my game overall I have to ask myself  what have we learned from this adversity?  I'm always trying to look for the positives and lessons from any situation and what I've gotten out of this is how to deal with tilt. It takes a lot to push me over the edge but when I go, I go! I'm sure a huge part of any players life is dealing with the downswings and it is not easy by any means. I guess for some just taking a break will do the trick or maybe you have you're own way to deal with it. I used to try some gaming or watching TV and just trying to relax a bit but that never quite seemed to do it, at least not without taking a day or two off poker. However I've recently found the wonders of exercise! Whenevr I'm feeling a little hot under the collar I go for a quick run. Doesn't need to be far, a mile or so tends to do it. It's an excellent way to clear your mind and make you feel a lot better. A quick shower and I'm back to the grind. What's your method? Please do share.
