Hi guys hope all is going well at the tables been having a few nightmares my self . Putting in to practice some things that i have been missing in my game . Bankroll management is so important does not matter how good a player you are if you hit a downswing like i have been on it hurts and the only way you can get through it is too look at where you may be going wrong and to work hard to make sure you do not have any leaks in your game .

I have learnt a lot on my downswing for one that i have not mastered tilt or bankroll management and playing for too long and when i am tired not good !!!! . Got a bit unlucky earlier in a spot with Aces when i lost to a set of Kings . I guess sometimes it goes for you and others it does not and think that is one of the hardest things in poker looking down at Aces and getting the Allin pre that you want the action that you want and losing the hand i have to understand that i do not have a right to win these hands . But i do close my eyes when i am all in pre these days lol .

My post flop play i am really proud of it has improved so much i think my pre flop play needs a lot more work on . I have much to learn about the game and when i was winning i became sloppy and lazy do not make my mistake guys keep working at your game  Anyways guys the hand below i was briefly involved with take a look i thought ouch .!! Good luck at the tables guys .ps wondered why when he the straight flush he did not shove the rest of his stack ?
