Default Confession: I chased my losses

I played another game of 25nl on Everest and the same old thing happened.. AA lost to 99 all in preflop, I remember how bad I've been running, and I try to bluff someone on a paired board, he calls with top pair and I lose another buy-in.

Then I go to $200NL and I win $28 back... This isn't a good sign. I haven't chased losses in several months and I thought I beat that habit.

Sorry for the low content post, but I wanted to confess.

You could not go to $50NL or $100NL? Either way chasing losses is just horrible. Hopefully you never do it again.

Bad Idea. Not possible on NL25!

I know how you feel, a few months back I was in a cold streak and decided to give 100NL a shot. I was fortunate to make a profit of $170 in a session. But the next day my balls were huge and I decided to try it again and lost $50. I took it as a small bankroll gift from the poker gods and never played 100NL under rolled since.

I've done some calculations and apparently at the moment the amount of sins you've made cause me to give out a fractional number of ave maries. So please go out and sin a little more so i can give you a nice round number

lol wow at you playing 200NL

Ive really never had the urge to chase losses...dunno why. Maybe I just dont care about the money enough

But at least you have recognised your problem. You are already taking steps to improve yourself and thats only a positive.

You can take stabs at pots at this level but never big bluffs. Especially when you've been suckout on already.
