Hey guys! Checking in to give an update.
In the past few months I have been experiencing a downswing in my games. I have been playing cash games consistently and also online tournaments. But I’ve been on the other side of the variance. It has been plaguing my mind, as it would to so many professional players out here at some point in their career.
My advice to anyone going through a downswing, which I take from my current actions, is that grinding it out is the only way to reduce and finally eliminate variance issues. Also take this time as an opportunity to learn and improve your game by studying around new strategies and/or perfect your current ones.
Apart from all this, there is an obvious mental stress on my head due to this variance in my games that I have been trying to remove because for me, usually, stress means a slump in my health. To combat this, I have been working on having a regular daily schedule by having proper meals on time, sleeping and waking up on time, getting adequate sleep etc. These are some things that I have been concentrating on to be able to handle the stress better and I know it will soon pay off.
Anyway, that’s all from me this time. Good luck with your games and keep grinding because as my blog title says,
Apna Time Aayega! 🙂
