So I have discovered that I need to work on my attitude for online play. In live play I am cool and calm. A good sport even when receiving a bad beat. But my attitude at home where no one can see me is quite the opposite. I rant, I rave, and I scream at the walls when I receive a bad beat or the flop just totally defeats me. I recently realized how much this hurts my game. In a hand where I flopped trips the entire board came up suited. I screamed, I howled, I really needed this hand. I was head to head and of course he got the pot while I folded in disgust. Thinking about it for the next five minutes afterwards it dawned on me that he stole the pot and I let him. I went over it a couple of times and it was so obvious but in my screaming of how the board turned out I totally quit playing before I had lost the hand.
