Just wondering how long running bad and never hitting any of your cards can last? Been three hours now and I am hitting nothing(When I get the odd good cards they fold), down £30 and all the limper callers are hitting everything all the time. Had a such a good session this morning now everything has gone to s**t.

for me it usually lasts until i go broke...

though i do not wish u to resemble me in this department, hope you hit the rhythm soon and recoup your losses in no time. just try to keep away frustration from the tables, take a small break, if it doesn't help- take a longer break...forget poker for some time, visit the nightclub, pick some chicks- have a fcuk session instead of poker session...

Yeah I left the table back on £212 and am in a freeroll so can keep my mind off it.

Three hours is nothing.
Can last way much longer than this.
If you see you are card dead, there is no point keep playing.
Take a small break and change platform or poker site.
That change helps some times.

I should have done that but you never realize things are worth leaving plus tilt. £10 of it was my fault trying to hit a flush when on tilt. Seems they always hit but not me. Will leave it till tonight or tomorrow.

Have you guys ever run even worse?

Pretty much yes, and as i told you it can last longer than that, but with time you get to learn and control somehow yourself Smile
But its one of these lessons you need to pay to learn them.
And i have done so myself a couple of times. Big Smile

Usually it sorts itself out(The other players wernt exactly great but they always win somehow lol) and I make the money back like last night when I tripled up to get double over what I lost. Only £28 down and still have £212 left so its hardly soul crushing or make a dent in my BR.

Worst one lasted about six months some years back....almost quit altogether. Went back and studied for about a month, then switched to PLO....that was a good move. Had a bad day y'day at NLH, swiitched tp PLO and ended up, again. Sometimes a change is as good as a rest.

A few hours break variance reared its beautiful head again and I got the money lost back plus £14 extra. Getting some good flops finally and having the confidence to pull off some bluffs or beat their bluffs.

I guess riding it and having a break is a good way to stop or get over it.

I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but I'll see I'm having the bad run so I've been off after two games and then come back the next day or two. Anyway, I've noticed if I don't play for two or more days, when I do come back it seems I play well of at least get decent cards and make the cash. Maybe not big cash, but better then nothing.

Never tried it myself but a few hours break always gets me having good cards and flops again. There is only so much bluffing and C-betting on micros as they will call you down with any low pair they have as they think you are bluffing so fold, fold and folding more is the only option if I miss 75% of everything.

Variance was still on my side after that and I smashed a few more tables and got to £265.70 before everyone left the table because I was crushing them. I then took the 70p to the lowest stake for fun and quadrupled it up. I forgot how easy those guys were down there. Big Smile

Mad to think I went from £236 to £212 then back up to £268 in the spaces of a few hours and one hour break. Well ahead of my goals for this month now.

Now I wait for tomorrows variance change and dry cards. Sad

About the longest I ever went playing card dead was about 10 days straight. No matter WHAT tourneys I played,...whether for a cash buy in,...ticket buy in,....freerolls,...etc. And no matter WHAT you try or don't try,...just NOTHING comes together for you. My bankroll just slowly bled away,...and YA,...it was almost enough to make me stop playing altogether!

Very disheartening...but it eventually passes,...and the winnings seem to come back,...and all of a sudden the game seems appealing again... Thumbs Up

I saw this bad runs a lot of time in the past but never so much good runs. Sometimes i thought a coinflip is only a 49:51 chance and not a 50:50. Ok it can be happen to be carddead. But why we see so oft the dark side of the moon?

My BR could take a big hit but I would not want to to after how much time and effort I have put into it.

@DaCaop71:

I am with you bud, out of every coin flip I have had it seems like I have more losses then wins, especially against people with an Ace, but when I have an ace none ever come.

It is easier to forget hand you won when you should and and harder to forget hand you lost when you shouldn't just keep track on those hands and you will see that. The odds always right in the long run.

How many times can my AA lose against KK in an all in pre flop flip? I have lost more than won and every time someone has initiated the all in after I 3 bet them. Also had my KK cracked by Q5o after a fish called my re raise. No matter I got my money in good and took the right decisions so I guess variance right itself soon.
