    Discipline

    I am so sick and tired of not having discipline when managing my Bankroll. I will be doing good for a couple days or even a week or two at cash games but then when I start taking a nose dive with my BR I always put it all on a table and make bad decisions and lose it all. I know need discipline and I am determined to reach down inside and plug up the massive leaks and become a better player that has patience, discipline, good Bankroll Management, and I need to make better decisions at the table when I know I am beat. I know what I am doing wrong but its good discipline that is standing in my way. I always blame it on the DONKS, but its not the DONKS fault that I can't control when I go on Super Tilt and play bad. It is my own damn fault and once I accept that and practice good discipline then I will be able to move forward in my Poker Journey. Good Luck Everyone!

    the first step toward fixing a leak is admitting you have one! good start

    though a grind is boring, perhaps you should try micro stakes with a 20-50 stack buyin buffer? just focus, you can do it!

    Whatever reasoning you use to play outside of your br is wrong. You'll just have to start arguing with yourself to talk yourself out of doing something stupid. =)

    sometimes its best to just take a break after a bad loss but i know what you mean most players have been through it but the nights you lose should be the nights you learn the most.

    I applaud your resolution, and I do hope you can stick with it. But it's like those "never again" mornings after a hellacious drunk - it's really hard to stick to it. I'm not busting your chops - I'm there with ya. I hope you pull it off, and I'll keep working on myself to do the same.
    I'm not slurring my words. I'm talking in cursive. I believe the ladies find it to be quite elegant.

    I lack any sort of discipline what so ever! I chase my losses, guard my blinds....and even get random impulses to join the casino (which so far has been a terrible decision)

    Ugh, I'm the "never again" hungover person. I really wish I could stick to that one.

    Tilt is one of the worst bankroll killers in poker. I have seen many people flush their rolls because of it. The best advice, and as simple as it is, that I ever received was "there is nothing tying you to the table." Very simple words. Anytime I feel tilt coming on, I take a break or a walk and clear my head. This is a game of concentration. If your concentration is broken, you cannot win.
