It's just a game so don't take it so serious unless your losing your money. I mean if they're freerolls or anything less then $5.00 I wouldn't quit, but I'd just fold that hand when your close to making it tio the final table or money.
No don't get frustrated with my sarcasm, but if this has occurred that many times you do need to consider changing your technique or method of play just a bit to deal with whatever mistakes your possibly making. Hang in there, you just want it too bad.

lol i feel you.. i had a huge set down on my bankroll 3 days ago.. i couldn't believe the huge bad run i had.. like incredible (not goin in details coz don't wanna look like a whiner). Anyways.. just to give my love to you man coz i know they hurt like hell and sometimes we play our best and still lose .. like alot. It can be hard aswell to drop the levels because your used to make money faster and you have to grind slowly.. and because it's not so stimulating game wise, but it's what one needs.
It happens to all that play enough hands.. it's hard to believe but it does. You hear about big pros going broke.. you think it's because they are bad at the game? :< Variance is a bitch and it kicks everyone.. it's a harsh game. If you don't want to handle with this sad situation you can :
Quit/take a break/rethink your strategy(tilt wise) and continue playing with a nice strategy bankroll wise aswell and discipline. And beware that variance is always there peeking! Btw just read a book a few days ago called "the mental game of poker" by Jared Tendler and it's quite nice to read.. kinda technical but very nice!

no i haven't heard of such thing- probably because usually when you're struck by lighting one time is enough getting back to your experiences at the tables- all the statistics in poker are based on long term results- just like roulette- you can see 30 reds in a row, so in poker i presume you can be busted 44 times in a row with aa vs kk, though i somehow have a clue you playe at riggedpoker.com

Gosh!!! But you are doing well in talking about it, it does well to spread your word, it will make you feel relief, you had to tell it and you told it and now you will give it a few days break and then you will come back (not "return", that seems that you will go again for the same and that's not what you want, you want to go for good) and you will see things will be different, your game and strategy will be improved because you also have to learn with life (not "mistakes", i'm not saying you played bad, but you know you have to play different in that room in that specific circumstance), you're not a mouse which bytes the cheese and feels the shock and returns to byte the cheese again and feels the shock again and don't change nothing in his routine. You will change and things will be different! Positive thoughts

Thats a huge number 44 times in a row? oh my. Maybe you should consider playing solitaire from now on Had some losses in a row with both but not in that high. I wonder how you keep yourself calm and still playing.
Since the all in preflop doesnt work for you try slow play.Mabe that way you will lose less chips
