I have written before, that I try to not only keep a record of my play, but to copy it again elsewhere when I get home. Because it is easy to keep records but forget about them. By copying my stats I'm forced to spend the time to reexamine my play in a "sober and detached" mental state. Something quite hard to do on the heat of the game, whether you are keeping records or not.
My last game was too long and very unpleasant. I find it hard to copy my records and re-live the disastrous results. I have to but I don't want to. I guess this is what psychologists are calling "denial".
In fact I have postponed my visit to the casino twice, because I want first to examine more carefully my last game but haven't yet. Let's hope I will find the courage to do the painful job and be able to go play this weekend.
