its a mind set

so, as ever, i have a good run and something changes that takes you away from your game. all in all i feel my game has improved. but i have been tempted by the bad boys, J n K. ok so hi pairs and suited big boys are a good punt but, did i call or raise to much of my pot, yes and i payed the price. i have probably fallen 200 spot to 7 8 hundredth in two games when i was doing so well. but thats the crunch, when we have a good run, we get laysie, we think its easy. dont we...
so what am i saying, if I stop thinking about the game and start focusing on the prize, I suffer, make bad calls, forget to fold. overbet when I dont need to. other factors I have noticed, my mood can affect my play, am I mentaly fit, etc, the factors are numerous, but my biggest failing is worrying about big prises, it is almost like ive decided there are better players at the board and adopt a lose mentality, im going to look for this in myself and go play ping pong or something lol. and just try and play when im not pokered out.
and to finnish off, as in life, there is allways something new to learn.
