I feel ya on that. One thing that I think is making my game better is patience (sp?). Its not something that I just developed but when I can just focus on the game at hand even if it is fold fold fold fold, I end up doing pretty good. Its when I get bored or lose focus that my mistakes start to happen. I am sure that is a common problem but it is something that I have been working on.
my trouble lately is more of apathy.I fold every hand and don't want confrontations until my stack gets so low I have to play for my life. It's as if everyone always has a better hand. Every flop they bet and I miss. 4 handed in 2 Pay STT's, and I watch my stack go from 3500 to 1800 of the 12k on the table, w/o ever getting past the flop.I'm left pushing all my chips with AJ vs a Button raiser with AK.WE start with 2,ooo chips, and I"ll be darned if I"m not between 1500 and 3000 80% of the time, even when I swing above 4k early on.I get lethargic? Often I get lucky because others will be eliminated. This sissy style actually lead me to limp with 44 and 1800/12000 chips with blinds 100/200 3 handed, 2 Pay. And knowing I can't play post flop without a set..why am I limping there?if I had 1400, it's an eaasy push because I can go on auto pilot then.I still should push with 1800, probably given the orther stack were evenish.I pretty much suck in the 10-16 BB rangesorry to hi-jack..
