I played my longest $2/4 session last night trying to beat a maniac at his own game and ended down just over $200 (50BB). It would have been more but thankfully I got some cards towards the end of the session and it took the maniac a little while to realize that his heater-plus-over-eager-oba-fuelled winnings ($300+) would most likely evaporate if he stayed at the table much longer.
In the cold light of day - with 7 hours sleep behind me - I reviewed the session and felt pretty sick about what I saw: hand after hand butchered and worst of all during the game I was making little effort to strengthen reads over time .
I was gambling with the villain and hoping he would pwn himself. Guess who got pwned? :(
