I am officially and completely disgusted by online poker.
WTF do I have to do to get !K to hold up against K4? OH right there is nothing I can do. Random Number Generators for poker sites must have a vendetta against me because anything that can hit for me to lose will hit.
I can't play like a donkey because I don't get lucky and I can't play poker because some fish calls with garbage and makes a 4 to the board flush. Honestly I have never been so mad in my entire poker life.
I AM JUST ABOUT DONE WITH ONLINE POKER IT JUST ROTS ME THAT THESE PEOPLE CAN PLAY THIS BAD AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO EVEN WORRY ABOUT IT BECAUSE THEY WILL HIT A MIRACLE TO BAIL THEM OUT.
I'm actually in a same situation as you, got some terrible unlucky streaks which cost me a lot and I decided to play less. Only 2 hours per day whereas before I was playing at least 5 hours up to 9. I will comeback when I'm in a better mood. At this moment I'm just grinding at some online casinos and is actually up to $78.

Online players are incredible weak players imo, they think they're so good they can take/bluff any pot you bet on from you, which often ends up in a all in from their site. What you gonna do when you know he's just a newb trying to steal another pot with a semibluff, you call ofc. But for some reason when i play this rookie, he will hit one of hi's outs on the river. It happens to me like 6 of 10 SnG's

pokerpaul youre lucky to get AK i dont even get AK`s at all for long time on one poker room or AA or even AQoff, too bad that site is not supported by poker office so i could tell you exact time but its been long. Once i did got QQ and ofcourse got beaten by JQoff, on flop guy did hit his J then Q came and finally there was a 8 on the river and he made his straight. Oops im lying i did get AA once, in tourney i lost against JJ, Queen high straight again.
