Had my first losing session last night after making the decision to come back. For the most part, I think it was more bad beats than bad play. Did I have some loose calls that cost me some extra $$$? Sure. However, I didn't tilt at all which makes this a successful session overall. I never really had issues with tilt before BF, but I really was wondering how I would handle things after taking over a year off from online poker.
On another note, I just saw on 2+2 that Merge is going to allow rakeback! When I signed up, they only offered the VIP program and even though I was able to make it to the bronze tier and have been receiving a whomping 6% RB since, it will be nice to start receiving a standard 35%. It will take away from my VIP points earning rate (drops to 65% I think?), however I think the value is definitely a lot more until I reach higher limits. June 1st can't get here soon enough. :)
