These two hands happened simultaneously on two different tables last night.* The net result was positive, but I couldn't shake how poorly I played #1, which in turn began to affect my game at the other tables I had open. That's the bad news. The good news is I was able to recognize the oncoming tilt and quit before things went too far downhill. Sometimes the most +EV play is to just walk away...

*Note how I had a combination of $50NL and $100NL tables open. I've been trying to table select better these days, and if that means mixing/matching stakes, so be it. I'm trying to find the best situations--and not necessarily stakes--to play.**
**And yes, the $100NL game is technically too rich for my current bankroll. Meh.
