24" monitor

I got myself a new 24" widescreen monitor a couple of days ago which I'm really liking, with 19" widescreen beside it. Its much better for multitabling and I could play 9 tables at a time on the main screen. I'll need to make some adjustments to my HM Hud to make it more readable as the tables are now a little smaller than I'm used to, but 4 or 6-tabling the tables are BIG and clear! :)

My poker has been pretty poor so far this month, losing at 50NL, 100NL and 200NL, STT & MTT. My only salvation has been some foolish but profitable shots at 400NL inlcuding my largest pot ever ($803 for my KK cracking AA) to make me breakeven so far (inc. rakeback). I've tried playing less and other things but can't seem to shake the gloom when I do sit down at the tables. (It was nice to take Queen of the South to the Champions League in championship manager 2008 though!).

I think I need to just try and play through it and concentrate on making good decisions and ignoring the $$. The 400NL shots have to stop even if they have saved me from a loss so far. I'm going to try and record each 100NL session I play now with commentary. I'm hoping this will make me more focussed and if that doesn't fix the downswing I can send them on to my coach to review. I'm pretty sure I haven't developed any leaks since last month but it can be very hard to be objective in your own hands when you are running/feeling bad.
