Win small, win small, win small, lose big, rinse, repeat

I have had pretty few losing sessions this year, but usually I lost a lot when I have them. I have had many winning sessions this year (almost all of them), but usually I win just a little. I played just a few sessions on April, winning all of them, but of course, I gave all of it back with my first losing session on May, losing big playing 30-60 razz this Friday night, Saturday morning.

I know better, I know it's pretty unprofessional of me playing this way; I should play the same amount of time despite my sessions results, and maybe just play a little longer if the table conditions are about right; but despite all my years playing poker I can't. It's a bad poker habit, despite all my mathematical background, I'm still pretty session results oriented; I have made pretty little progress on this issue, maybe now when I'm stuck, I play pretty long sessions, instead of the marathonic sessions I used to play years ago and big losses today don't bother me as much as they used to and that's probably why I'm able to stop now.

Still, one of the things I would like to solve, it's to play more when I'm winning, hell, I would like to be able to play more in general. My playing time is a big, big problem. I'm just winning enough money to get by, and while I have never had any pretensions about being rich and have lots of money, not winning more money now, it's going to be an issue on the long run. It's an issue now, since I don't have the bankroll to play on the WSOP for example, and I would like to be able to do it; but it's going to be a bigger issue in the future, since I'm not saving, and I'm not that young anymore.

I totally understand. I'm running so bad right now its horrible. I am lossing live as well as online. I'm making the correct play and getting it in good, then getting runned down by the runner runner or the flush. Viva los latinos en poker. Oh, and thanks for the update.

Hey Jose,

Where do you play live in Houston? Or you travel to the Louisiana Casinos?

Both actually. Theres a few really nice popular underground clubs. I also host a small home game every other week. I'm a bit more advanced than your normal player, but I'm no pro thou. I've been a fan of yours since your WSOP win a few years back. Its nice to see a mexican doing his thing at the poker level. If you and your family are ever in the houston area, let me know, my family is in the hotel buisness, and your room is on me. You will have to give me some pointers thou, and let me watch you play online, lol.
