well im back to $8900 and i want to talk about the loss and about how to avoid it in the future. But first a couple of other things to say. im trying to solve the problem about comments. i need to learn how to technically set it up so all comments (after approval) are visible and show up in the same place. that makes it easier on u guys to follow and read them. OD talked about me adding a forum but didnt have the time to assist me with it and suggested i find someone else to help. i will someday when i have money control a huge forum i OWN just like the OD did. only difference between me and OD is id find the time to do the work, or if not hire people to do it. it wouldnt cost much, id hire broke former online poker players i know.
ok what all u guys are waiting to hear about, the big loss. it started off innocently enough. i went to ceasers and paid $130 for the 4pm turbo deepstack. i busted early and didnt feel like rebuying, because i hate buying in late and missing levels for whatever reason. so i had exactly $145 on me remaining in cash was all. (rest was in the safe deposit box, bank, debit cards, etc.)so i bought in the cash game at ceasers. pretty soon i got AA and i still had about $130 or more of it left. guy butt straddles for $6, guy UTG makes it $20, and a guy calls. i look down and see AA and i want to try and get max value and dont worry too much with only 2 others in (now dont say i played it bad just due to the results, i think over the longrun i did play it well.) so i only raise to $40, and they both call. flop comes KT3 with 2 spades. one of which i have. both check, i bet $96 and a guy calls with a set of 3's and i am sure if id have had a bigger stack id have lost even more. right?
so then i went to the IP to get in the safe deposit box, and then sat in the game, a little on tilt and i forget the hands, but ended up losing $100 more. then walked over to osheas. found the other tony (anthony) a diamond club member whose pretty broke a lot needing rooms who wanted me to stake him yesterday who hangs out bills and osheas a lot. he was sitting on a VP machine (100 play) and i sat beside him on the 50play. and he was using a voucher he got on a free tourney through summerfest. i ended up breaking about even there, but at one point was stuck a bit more. then lost over $200 in the game at osheas, and then walked to the IP again, lost over $100 on the same type of 50play deuces wild, and walked over to a table BJ game quite pissed where i lost all the rest. no video BJ for me. id have much rather tried to play in a 2-5 game at ceasers with the final 500 lost, but was too lazy to walk across the street and probably not get seated right away, and didnt feel i could play well stuck all that. how do i learn to develop more self discipline?
