Hey I need some advice on improving my mental game after sessions. I’m trying to play 1/2 a few times a week and did my first actual session today. Played for a little over 4 hours and lost $400 of which ~$230 was mine. I don’t think I played particularly poorly and in fact was happy with my discipline and the fact that I mainted a clear head after losing KK<AK and managed to make it back to about $500. But I then got sucked out on when my aces were cracked by a river straight and lost a big one. But was able to make the disciplined lay down on the river. I was also happy that I didn’t get tilted and was able to make the lay down. Ultimately, I ran QQ into KK and once again lost and called it a night after the frustrating session. But, I’m already questioning myself and plays even though most were coolers and that generally leads me to play a worse game. I lose my confidence and overfold and underbulff. I’m thinking about calling it quits on the whole endeavor and staking my friends until I’m able to get a job and have a steady income. For reference my goal is to be able to play as a side income and use the money to better position myself for early retirement. Thanks to anyone who made it this far!
