Poof goes the Money

I am in full blown crazy work mode again, being stuck in the office until past 11pm every night this week and expect the rest of April to be more of the same. Despite being wiped out when I finally get home, I insist on unwinding with a bit of poker before crashing.

Monday night I was splashing around on a mix of 50NL and 25NL tables and was getting smoked. There were a couple coolers mixed in where I lost with set under set or fullhouses that ran into bigger rivered fullhouses, but there was some awful play on my part where I was up against obvious sets but refused to release my over pair or TPTK which did most of the damage. I dropped a few buy-ins at 50NL and 1 buy in at 25NL, which really isn't that awful but then I committed a cardinal sin. I knew I was frustrated, I knew I was tired, yet I decided that sitting at a 200NL table would be a good idea for some reason. Tilt city. Anyway, I dropped that buy in with a brilliant AQo push. So, in no time flat I wiped out the first couple weeks of April's profits plus a little. On the bright side, I didn't lose any limbs or anything, and I can now say that I have played as high as 200NL. On another bright side, I finished off my last $30 of Paradise bonus along the way.

Hopefully I learned something. Not that I didn't know it already but stopping play when tilting would seem to be a good idea. Further reinforcement that playing late and tired is an awful idea. And the one mistake I always chuckle about other people doing repeatedly is moving up to chase losses. How stupid is that?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to playing some 200NL again some time in a better frame of mind. With my schedule for the rest of the month due to tax season, it looks like I'll end April with a bit of a loss which is disappointing after such a strong March and very solid start to April. I'll have to get it all back on track in May and will continue to play 25NL and 50NL.
