Back To Car Crash Poker

Started solid yesterday and went £500 up. I knew once i got under £2000 loss i would likely move up stakes a bit and made a decision to that effect last night (3/6 and 5/10 plo$). Obviously wish i hadnt bothered as it was back to the norm with every piece of luck going against me. Lost over £2,000 and ended up £1,600 down on the day. Jan tally back to -£3,600 and im left in limbo. I probably should just take a few days off and start a fresh for Feb but i feel at this time of year i should be putting in as much volume as i can while im not busy. I dunno i will see what i feel like later and review the situation then. Maybe i should just play 2 or 3 hours low stakes a day and go back to playing 4-6 multis from 8pm -1 or 2am for 5 nights a week. Urrgh i dnno prob just stick to cash once my head clears.

Play a few tournies imo, a change is as good as a rest as they say.

I've been following your blog through Jan. What made you decide to move up stakes?
-£2,000 with 3 or 4 days of the month to go; if you could have chipped away another £500-£1,000 then -£1,000 would look small beer if you were have a cracking month later in the year.
I notice you have been blogging most days with a monthly tally. Do you think this is putting to much pressure on yourself to finish the month in profit?

Best luck at the tables

I didnt write it on here but i knew i would allow myself to move back up a bit once a got some of the loss back and felt more comfortable and confident. I would be first to admit if i had done it to chase in tilt but this wasnt the case (although i should have left sooner for sure). Also was only 3/6 and 5/10$ so not massive, i couldnt really have lost more than i did.
Yes agree totally -£1,000 fine but for some reason my brain doesnt follow logic and even if +£5 it would feel 10 times better to say i didnt have a losing month.
As for pressure i wanted it and i knew if i posted a running tally i would be less likely to move up stakes in rage, tilt or at the wrong time and if i did there would be no escaping it on the blog where i could have given myself shit. Appreciate the comments, all valid points and although im not posting tonight i can confirm all low stakes i got some back and now -£2,750 :)
