Another fruitful day at 2NL 6-max

Yeah, all of them from today's session

Today I played 600BB under expected value leading to a very tilted player.......
Yeah I'm not proud that I started expressing some very negative feelings at the tables.
In my defence, I just was having some pretty unlucky spots.

A few examples (and I 'm leaving out the 'normal' beats as hitting top pair top kicker against a set etc..., )

Hand 1 - enjoy

Hand 2 - some more fun

Hand 3 - This opponent was loving the shove, I felt I was better and my feeling proved right. That is - I was better preflop

Hand 4 - I just hate when this happens 2% right ?

Hand 5 - Oh wait, didn't we see this one before

Hand 6 - And in the end, we tilt......
Although in my defence
Villain 5 is VPIP 18/PF 12/AF2 (flop 3 turn 1 river 1) (253 hands)

I knew I was not having the nuts but as this player had been playing some decent poker, I thought long about his river shove and ended up calling as I could not believe this specific player would be calling on a gutshot on the turn. However I would consider this hand poorly played by myself ( I was going from tilt to control to tilt to control to ... well you get the picture )

Anyhow, if you have some advise - welcome

Forget about hand results and focus on the quality of your decisions.

Don't get upset over your opponent's mistakes as they make you money.

Brutally honest evaluation of your decisions is highly effective in growing one's game.
