Not even kidding - last 2 days on MTT and SNG sitting there just getting zip. No big pairs, no AJ+ etc, medium pairs at best.
Weird how the variation is, it's difficult to sit with chit hands all the time.

Like driving, tiredness can kill your poker game. I learnt that yesterday too - when you have a fuzzy head and no concentration, just leave, walk away, into a sunset or wall, it doesn't matter. It is +EV

G'day mate

Well I must agree with you there.
Been very sick the last two weeks and by playing while I was dead tired but unable to sleep has cost me my entire bankroll.
Ok the 15 all in moves in a row which was all lost when I was a huge favorite to win had something to do with it too.
However had I not been playing when I was both sick and tired not to mention bored would have been a much better move.
Would have been massive +EV no it just a massive goose egg.
best of luck to you.
be cool

Hey dude,....if you find yourself endlessly playing poker until all hours of the night and missing out on lots of quality sleep,....you know it's now more than just playing a game....It's become a serious addiction not unlike alcohol, drugs,...or even chocolate.... Big Smile

It's like,.....you've become a MONSTER..... Evil

Know the feeling.. specially for the late hours on which i usually start playing... if i didn't catch a little rest before it's very hard to play focused after..
Running card dead for some time also makes all those usual middle hands that you wont play after a raise start to look much better ( better than they actually should) and that's when i realize it's time to stop coz my judgement is starting to be affected. If I'm in a tourney I call it quits and won't multitable opening new ones. If it's cash game i check the " sitting out next BB" box and go light a cig calling it for the night.

Yeah I get that too, QJ in mid position, wow, a hand...not really.

Best bet is to stop, rest and recharge. Multi-tabling is a majorly bad thing especially, but egenrally if I don't have the concentration for one table I don't have it for any.

Falling out with the girlfriend isn't good for the bankroll either.....

This is the reason I sometimes fizzle out just after the bubble has past. I start getting rubbish cards and as I wait the blinds take there toll and once I do have a good hand I am usually either pushing or calling and hitting nothing.

I wonder if other players get that but they just make it seem like they dont: eg blind steal, bluffs ect.

poker is very boringzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz online, and quite frankly a waste of my time although gambling is quite exciting
I only play poker when I'm almost broke, Casino is my thing-made thousands of dollars playing in very short time-poker winnings hmmmm got some but maybe 2 cash outs in 7 years
when i first got into playing poker it was with a forum and was all of us playing all the time and it was fun...that is the atmosphere i enjoy playing poker in
otherwise i go to the real casino and play poker where there is no cheating and things are real

It is the most frustrating thing ever when you are card dead, you think the whole world is against you and all the conspiracy theories go through your head. You must just hang in there and the cards will come {hopefully!} Smile

Are you my long lost twin?

Did your mother have a ginger moustache and walk with an upright stoop?

Oh, please say it is so!

Yeah being card dead is gonna happen once in a while and sometimes it last very long, at least it feels like it. Remembered playing zoom, for 2k hands I had not received a single premium hand and suited aces.

You just have to deal with it and wait for the card distribution to go in your favor, the best we can do is to minimize loses during those bad times and exploit other edges etc.

This is why having a good bankroll helps. As it allows us to whistand variance, the more bankroll you have the more time you will be able to ride it out and come back in the game.
