I took the first few days of June off and started playing again yesterday, I wish I hadn't bothered.
I've played poorly at times, taken some horrible beats, barely flopped a set, and last night I got completely owned for 2.5 buyins by a 36/33. I'm half expecting that 30min bloodbath to show up in a vid at one of the training sites sometime next week.
After not standing up to him (i.e 4-betting rather than folding) a couple of times early on with decent holdings I decided to make a stand with TT IP. We get it in on an 8-high flop, and of course villain flips AA. Text-book stuff. A $250 lesson in table-selection, as next time I'll just walk away I think.
It's amazing how just a few bad sessions can totally destroy my confidence. Sadly, the worse I run the nittier I get, I hadn't thought that was possible. I will soldier on at NL100 tonight and see how it goes.
