I mean its so sick! Aww crap! 8 days of nonstop losing.I played 15k hands in this 8 days an lost 25BI and i almost dont tilt at all.After each session i analyze hands where i lost most ..i mean AA vs KK preflop allin,set vs higher set ,overpair vs higher overpair on dry flop ...etc,etc +all the bad beats. they hit everything ..they hit their 3 outers 2outers 1outers. I know that there nothing wrong with my game and i should win money in a long run with that play..BUT how far more? Aww crap! if 15k hands isnt big enough distance? Confused should i stop playing? but i dont tilt,i didnt change anything in my playing style during this downswing..
What do you say ? did you had such downswings? 25 buyins! ok 5-10BI nothing unusual,but 25.. Aww crap! any advices?

Keep playing good, luck will come back... one day!

I don't have any good tip for you, I've never had such a big downswing but we all know it is possible. We have to keep in mind that even 2c-7h has like 10-11% chance to win pre flop against Ac-Ah. So if you're really unlucky, there's nothing you can do except hope it changes.

Maybe take a break for a couple of days, even if you say you're not tilted, I have a hard time believing such a downswing doesn't influence your game at all.

i'd follow the machines advise...if u have a downswing again the coming days ,,u will get surely tilted..

take a break ,2 days,, then come back fresh...with new elan,,,

if u run bad then again,, you can handle it better i suppose..

good luck anyways,, may all your monsters be winners ,,at least the coming week... Blink

be calm- this is normal situation- someone needs to make a living out of you Big Smile maybe some day you will make a living out of someone, this is poker, we can start another thread of how rigged stars is, but what's the point? just play on, or lose your bankroll and quit, it's up to you Worship

It wasnt to offend you.
Only meant to say 25BI over 15K happens its just variance.
When we have this swings over 200K hands it sucks.

Hi Unknown. I would say you have already started doing the right thing. I feel it is good to blow out over your variance on here rather than on the tables.

Now take a break and come back next week and tell us all how good you having been running since your break !!!!

Lets all be positive !!!!!!

GL to you all.................. Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

stop playing, i did it. now i do rather play online shoter than poker lol, only now and then for fun, like once in a months.
after i lost like over 50 times in a row with trips to 2 outers (higher trips on T/R) and only won 9-12 times, i was like "fuk it". other constellations arent even considered, but this gave me the sign to quit.
sure, i might have won some more, but only a few bucks, the rest were all-ins.
my advice, quit for a while, because i think, every single time u lose you willl get pissed, even if its only once out of 3 times, each single time u lose it will remember you about your bad streak..
