I've been playing poker for years. At the beginning of this year, I decided to play poker as a professional. I have a very stable routine. The time I wake up in the morning is usually the same. I'm trying to eat healthy. I do crossfit training for at least 4 days a week. I think I've built a solid poker psychology over the years. But the last 3 months didn't go the way I wanted.
First of all, because of the country I live in, WPN is the best option for cash game. I think most of the games are hard compared to the room. 4-5 tables playing at the same time. I've been in this situation for 3 months. In such cases, I was advised to study more. I'm trying to work more every day. I feel that my poker is getting better, but unfortunately it's not reflected in my game.
My friend told me not to disturb my morale and he could support me for other rooms. I've been playing here for the last 1.5 months, but I'm facing a similar result.
I know I have a lot of crap. I keep working on them every day. But the fact that I sit at the table after the lecture and spend a lot of money on the table reduces my desire to play poker. Every morning I sit with great enthusiasm, but I don't want to continue the session because of what happened during the session. I've been in this head for a long time and I'm starting to think I'm not getting any better. I can't afford to measure myself anymore. I'm having a hard time motivating. Most of the time I do not notice that I play good or bad.
How can I handle this?
(Besides studying and practicing.)
Do I have to accept that I'm a bad player and give up?
Do I exaggerate this situation too much?
Waiting for your solution and suggestions. Thank you.
