the suggestion that I take is that on days like this take a bit of play, a back, breathe a little, i think you should keep playing or not. are days like this that make you lose everything you have, even though a game of skill is not that this day is best for us to stop and wait to play the other day, I hope I helped.

Just f ucking frustrating and sick player go all in with 82 s ( caller ). Except he call first maybe bluff, but caller ??? yeah you and all us is victim of crazy and brutal natural law. Nothing we can do, just try to accept it. Life is not always beautiful, isn't it ?
Posted by kwasac: Serpong, actually most of my bad beats was in HU, thats the fact that frustrated me the most! I am playing good, have about 70, 80% of chips, and then opponent start to push every hand i just cant finish it!!!
But today is another day, I decided to take a break for a couple of days and then try to win some money coldheaded.
Just hope this downswing wont last longer...
I know that's situation, I get it a lot cause I am not aggressive player. Next time try like this : wait really good hand or ( most important to me ) feeling/ insticnt when you receive cards ( winning hand or not ) then just check or call and go all in when he shove. without that card ignore his shove, just fold !! working better to me than tilt about his action/ bet.

I know this situation. This happens to me at least once in two weeks, a day in which it's impossible to win. The only thing you can do is to make a break, drink a beer, and try to win tomorrow. good luck to everyone

Hi,it's not only on pokerstars like that,on few poker sites last time I don't have luck always someone beat me on the river with s...t of cards,we musr accept that.this is not live game and strange things happens on online poker,I think we must change how we play,like that poeple who winns with 3 7 or 4 5 and then all in

Posted by kwasac: In an hour of playing I lost a bunch of hands where opponent has 2, 3, 4 outs on flop, or turn... Its not about money i lost, its about frustration that is growing in my mind and some questions, ARE YOU SERIOUS? REALLY? THIS GUY IS LUCKY TOO AGAINST ME???!!!
The only thing that is left for me is
Cmon... Top of all is my 10 10 vs 10 10 ... Did I lose this one too? 3 diamonds on the flop, and another one on turn!
Very next hand I had J 10, flop bring me top pair 10, i decide to check raise all in because i was first to act, and this was hyper turbo tournament so when you mix it up with my tilt for last hand, fold was not an option.
As i thought he did bet, so i was all in and have been called with Q J...
Turn card is Q, and I am out...
I know i should stop playing for today, but who knows...
Help me with some suggestion
It happens to me the same...it is like that in an hour almost everything ruined after u play tight and have some winings...after that everything smashed like all fortune in the world goes to the opponent...my advice is that to take a break , at least few hours, maybe 1-2 days, and start playing after that...good luck
I switch to pure SSS (short stack strategy). Variance is lower if the downswing is prolonged...play less holdem and add more variant games in the mix. Sometimes a change is as good as a rest. Have had my BR rebound that way.
