I slept on it, and I am now my usually well composed self again. Practically a zen master, I am. One good thing about a decent downswing (I am aware that two bad sessions does not constitute a downswing), is that it helps you get rid of that mellow self satisfied feeling of being able to sit down and generate a few thousand at any given moment. Nothing like a little uncertainty to keep your edge.
What does it take to be the kind of player that is really able to put in lots of hours, and profit from this lucrative hobby/job of ours? It seems that for me, when I have a long period of good results, I grow a bit too satisfied with that, and start to lose motivation. Now, after two bad days, I can't wait to get back to the tables and prove my bad results wrong. It seems I am playing with a chip on my shoulder. I am practically the Rodney Harrison of poker!
