Maintaining motivation in online poker is hard stuff to do, for me, especially when I have a winning streak. It is because I get the most happiness from improvement. I get a lot of satisfaction every time when I achieve something, breaking personal record etc. That’s not possible if I play well, nothing to improve. No motivation to study because I don’t see what I should to improve.
I just purchased short-stacking poker course: https://automaticpoker.com/academy/sign-up/
Beginning went very well for a few days, I had 50-80€ days, but then I faced huge losing streak and lost 100€ in one day. Is it because I got bored to follow same basic guide line? Probably.
Poker coaches say to not care about money winning money, only making best possible decisions. But I have realized I must care about making money, it doesn’t mean for me almost anything, when I win big, I start to get anxious and I try to slow down. I can’t understand, I love money. Human mind is interesting. I’m sure when I have removed this mental block I will become unstoppable – you will see. See ya in the poker table.
