I'm curious what other people are doing to get back to playing your "A" game when you notice that you aren't on it?
I've been making a true concerted effort to make my style more aggressive and open up my game lately and have noticed that as of late, my decision making process just hasn't been great. Instead of accepting the game flow for what it is, I have been forcing bigger and bigger pots and I think I have been using aggression as a substitute for thought. Frustration has def. started to set in. This is leading me towards my first losing month (although plenty of time to turn that around) in several years. With that said, I don't really care about a single losing month, but I know that my play has not been my "A" game. Although not poker related, having a 2nd kid has cut back my time playing and I find myself gunning for bigger sessions to make up for lost total hours.
With the retooling that is going on in my game, I think I might need to get back to solid basics. Really cut back on any hands oop and and play a little more of an exploitable style for a bit. Get away from the speculative hands, tighten up, more value betting, less super thin vb, etc....
I'd be interested in what others do when you notice your play isn't what it should be. I do take notes on tough situations and have recorded every session of poker I've played for over a decade.
