This month I decided,to play more games than average because I need around 100 more vpp to catch a bonus by the end of the year.. It looks like I started good and I am getting worse by the day.. Should I get real nitty because it looks like every hand I am not sure of turns out that I am beat. I had a few consecutive bad rolls but overall i think I started to call too much, not the river bets but, I started to call small(less htan 1/3 pots) flop and turn bets asuming they are weak, I also experience hard time folding overpair or TPTK hands. Even though I know where I started to get weak it looks like I cant get out of my skin. It looks like that nanostakes are somethimes so bad that I got used to it :/ how do you deal with that? I know the best thing is to take a few days off but I cant because I need to clear the bonus in 2 days because I don't want to play it on vacations (I wont take my computer and I dont have ptracker on tablet)

The VPP system is there to reward the poker site and not you. Forget about it and concentrate on your game. Only when you can beat the system can you exploit the rewards programs.

Put up specifics on hands and get them analysed. Be honest, no point giving an AA bad beat if you shoved the 5 hands previously. Get your stats analysed as well.

HTH.


Bracelet Winner

Good advice from Ovalman. No point pressuring yourself and many people have not found what they were looking for when chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

All depends what the bonus is worth to you, and if you are willing to make a loss playing because it is worth it? Pointless chasing 100 vpp to get a $10 bonus if you lose $30 doing it, but acceptable to create a stop loss if you stick to it.
