Dealing with bad sessions

Just wanted to share last night's session where in 1000 or so hands at 1/2 I flopped a middle and bottom set on wet boards to get all the money in vs. a higher set. Set of JJ loses to q8o by river catching a gutshot vs short stacker in 3b pot. I flopped 2 nut joints and got all the money in by the turn only to lose to a full boat by a board pairing river. I busted out of a tourney 30bb deep trips vs fullboat (rivered of course). My KK ran into AA blind vs blind and my AK ran into AA on an A high board in 3b pot--I didn't get stacked on that one as luckily villain was trying to trap so he missed a turn bet but by that time I was thinking "oh of course you have aces there" total damage 3 buyins. I would have been almost even at one point but really really wanted to turn a profit as the games were really really good... when do you guys call it quits during a bad session?

On a positive note I flopped quads but unfortunately didn't make that much money!

    This depends on how well you control your tilt. You never really want to stray too far from your A game for too long. Consecutive beats or coolers in a short period of time and I'll typically just walk away from the table for a bit. Maybe take a lap around the casino and get some fresh air. But then I'm right back in. I don't actually quit a session unless I'm out of money. Luckily, that has only happened once and I don't plan for it to happen again since I usually come with about 5 buy ins or more

    Also seems like your estimated hands/hr may be a bit off

    I play online 4 cash games and 1-2 tourneys simultaneously.

    All good my friend. That would be amazing if all that happened in one live table. If have to think that the dealer is in on it at that point lol

    I had a bad session this week too. Second hand in I got caught with a set over set on the flop. Got stacked. About my 10th hand in I flopped top pair with K9d and river'd 2 pair only to find out that he flopped a set the whole time and never raised me, just called me all the way down. 3rd buy-in I got good cards but never paid off or had to fold to re-raises. It happens. Take a deep breathe and hit it hard the next time around.
