Playing Poker Depression Can Be Just As Bad As The Condition

Poker depression is the most common and debilitating condition you'll ever encounter in a poker game Freebet Poker. It's so widespread that you may be hard pressed to find a single online or offline tournament player who doesn't have to deal with the psychological effect of playing poker depression. Depression in a poker game can make you a whiner, lose focus and energy, and hinder your performance in both play and for life idn poker.

One of the first symptoms of poker depression is losing focus. When you are feeling down and start to doubt yourself and play poorly, it becomes much harder to win than you would if you were not depressed. You won't have enough mental fortitude to get through a round.

Poker depression causes you to over analyze and ask questions about how you played the hand. The more you do this the less you'll win. This then forces you to analyze what went wrong and what you did wrong. The more you do this the more you blame yourself.

Some people actually believe they have a cold when they are suffering from poker depression. I've known several players that were so determined to play badly that they'd allow themselves to be sick to get it done. This is a total waste of time and can even cause sickness to develop.

For some people who suffer from poker depression they actually refuse to eat. This can lead to a medical condition called anorexia which is serious and can become life threatening.

Not only does poker depression cause your brain to literally freeze up but it will also cause other symptoms like difficulty concentrating and decision making problems. If you constantly question your play even though you're winning, you will continually be looking for mistakes to explain why you lost the game.

You'll find yourself becoming irritated by every little thing. When you think about something, you get upset and frustrated and try to get it out of your mind so you can move on to the next situation. When you do this your concentration gets lower and you do all the things you used to do when you didn't feel so bad.

To make matters worse poker depression makes you emotional. You start to cry or show weakness all the time. Eventually you start behaving in a very unprofessional manner, and you begin to lose the respect of your peers.
