    Bad runs cause you to contemplate every play/decision and second guess yourself.

    Take a day or two off & clear your head.

    You have to be honest with yourself.
    Is it just a bad run that happens to the best, or is it poor handicapping?

    If it's a bad run and you're not doing anything else wrong, then it goes away in 1-3 days.
    So you cut off your bets and wait it out.

    If it's bad handicapping, you will lose money consistently over time.
