New To Pokerkaki

Hi Guys, new here.

Ken on the table here, 21, NSF, just a young blood with a passion for the game and hope that one day i could walk the tourney road, and maybe, turn pro on my way there.

Starting playing a year ago with friends, but i never had the chance to play with outsiders or online. Haha. I've made some good plays and some bad, but my Achilles heel is i almost start to lose concentration and play badly towards the end of a session, since good playing etiquette means you can't stand before the guys call it a day.

Erm, i think i used to be better, a tighter player, and i could read tells, calculate odds, but i was timid and didn't participate in big plays unless i had the odds. but i think i now playing more aggressively, to the extent i think sometimes i think i'm becoming more of a maniac. I used to play less than 15% of my hands in matches and bring home 2x of the bankroll, but now, i keep losing big, and my winnings are like 50% of my losses. Also, i become very emotional in some plays and all my strategies and even position- checking goes out the window as i just wait for the luck. I keep saying, " it's not my day, it's not my day", but the truth is, sometimes my friends can almost read me like a open book. I still blame it on luck.

I do hope that so more seasoned non-online players would give me a few tips and pointers.

Stop playing when your tired , period

but i think i now playing more aggressively, to the extent i think sometimes i think i'm becoming more of a maniac.

Then don't play that aggressively ? go back to play less than 15% of your hands
be emotionally detached lor.

:( For me, easy to say, damn hard to do. Esp when you're on a losing streak/bad beats/ bad reads, haha.
