No poker articles were found for tag quitting.
……..for now at least. If I’m honest I’ve drifted off course over the last 3 years and the time I invested in poker probably played no small part. Having at least an extended break, and maybe I won’t feel the need to come back. Shame really, as I was on a nice little heater and planning on having another crack at the 50NL games which got the better of me last time round. C’est la vie. Have a little under £1K to cash out inc ... <a href="/blogs/houseofcards/81141-No-More-Poker-">(continued)</a>
This isn’t really blog worthy, but I don’t feel it’s forum-worthy either. Just kind of a side conjecture I’ve had that I thought I’d share (perhaps to my future self even): I’ve found that when I first started playing a lot of situations arose where I wanted to quit poker. Like, I would get really really close to just taking my money off the site and never looking back—All because of a couple bad beats ... <a href="/blogs/jjpriest25/67821-Thoughts-on-Thoughts-about-Quitting-">(continued)</a>
One of my yearly goals (which was last years goal, and year before that etc etc) was to quit smoking. I had managed to quit at the start of 2009 for a few months and then slowly got back into it and up to my usual 20 a day. Things got worse when I started working full time. I immediately made friends with the smokers and was enjoying going outside and puffing away, chatting about the daily grind. Most of my managers were smokers wh ... <a href="/blogs/pbx/19511-Yearly-goal-x-d-">(continued)</a>
I need to print this quote and attach it to my workstation: â€œThe temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.â€
After having looked at my first 70k hands @ 50nl, despite the fact that I genuinely believe I am skilled enough to C R U S H these games, I have realized that I am a very marginal loser there.. (net loss of $264 over 70k+ = 0.81/bb/100) so this really got me thinking about where I am right now as a player. Recently my focus (or lack thereof) has been on having fun while playing poker, trying new thin ... <a href="/blogs/acombfosho/707-My-current-learning-focus-quitting-well">(continued)</a>
So last night I was on a bit of down swing. Not playing my A game and catching the dirty end of variance. I found a good spot in a deep game with a 95/55/1 fish who would bet small or call down to just about every river, would fold a lot rivers, bluff really small, or would jam with a hand. He ran good. Peeling AcTs3c4h on Kh9d5c flop, As turn and donk-jamming 2h river with a made backdoor wheel. (I had 899T a ... <a href="/blogs/rvtsteve/74-When-Do-You-Quit-a-Juicey-Game-">(continued)</a>
