well it happens really when u expect the unexpected ,be sure you know all the set expectating ,but anyways guys have fun and pls.remember that poker is still a part of gambling and not made for us proving as skills but skill is only an advantage..
The story of course is very sad and very instructive .... I can only express my regret on the outcome of your game .... maybe you needed to set a goal for yourself - for example 3000 dollars and after reaching it to withdraw money .... as Would not want to play more ... but this is just my opinion

everyone of us have bad periods in poker,casino or betting life and this is normal that we have great or bad runs,sometimes this is for one days,sometimes can stop in few days,so its important when to stop or change game!
For me the most important about poker is that you need to play because you love the game, the strategy aspect of it... Wether you consider it your job or a hobby doesn't really matter. If you feel you're not really having fun when playing then maybe you need to take a little break. Of course it's hard to have fun when you get bad beats at the worst possible moments and I'm sure we've all experienced this before. But usually when I don't play for some weeks when I get back to it I play better for some reason!
You can just get back to it if you feel fine about your game, just make sure you keep grinding a level you're comfortable playing at.
