      Im just having the worst downswing I ever tried havent cant remember catching a single flush or straight when i got in on the flop with an open-ended, nut flush-draw, or mid-pair with re-draw, and Im just keep getting sucked out.

      Just flopped broadway, and the turn rivered, next hand I flop two pair and get my money in and get sucked out by backdoor flush.

      I know im not playing very much, but the last 2k hands it have just been like this all the time.

      I know I have lost some pots I shouldn't have lost, but when your running bad, your often also playing bad, and since I not have played that much (all time) loosing is just very hard. :(

      Anybody who have any ideas to what I could do when im starting loosing?? just stop after a couple 100 hands, or try to keep the head cold and keep grinding??

      did u have some kind of upswing before that? I mean: getting great cards like sets / monsters and getting paid, or winning coinflips/underdog allin situations?

      I was not running very hot, i was winning, almost doubled up the starting capital, by playing 6$ DON SNG's (know its not good bankroll management) and NL4.

      My winning was almost the same is the all-in ev, so wouldn't say that I was running hot.

      yeah, allin-ev doesnt show everything.. tell for example, what was ur ROI or bb/100 over how many hands?

      my ROI might have bin about 12% and bb/100 about 5 after 2k hands, as I said from the beginning I haven't been playing that many hands.

      How many hands/sngs have u played totally? 4k looks like very small samplesize.

      I think u could try playing some smaller stakes - losing 4 stacks there doesnt mean so much if ur already playing on bigger stakes.

      - If ur downswing means just that u must fold small pots, like after draws, and u get FEW bad beats, then it doesnt look that bad. - imo try to play 1k hands on smaller stakes and see what happens for example.

      I dont know what's wrong with you guys, I've been steadily building up my bankroll at partypoker for 2 months. Got the steady eddy button on PTR :D Didn't play this month but before that I just played well and when I got unlucky it wasn't too bad cuz I knew I was beat. Make better decisions. Just because you have open ended straight or flush draws doesnt mean you should always go all-in. Just play tighter, play BETTER.

      Party Poker is obviously rigged, because their RNG generates more herp than derp.

      They are ALL RIGGED!!! if anyone finds a site that seems fair please let me know cos i played many sites now i find them all to be too consistant with the suckouts and bait action induced flops and the same old suckouts! Is it possible top get more than one bonus or is it just 1 x $50 for 1 site? i had mine on party, played some 0.10/0.25 omaha as i dont like hold em what so ever, obviousley way out of my bankroll but .10c/.25 is the MINIMUM stakes for omaha on PARTY POKER i played thousands of hold em hands and just kept bouncing up n down so went up to the minimum limit omaha with just $45 and blew it with super unlucky river suckouts!!

      If you think the sites are rigged then you should quit online poker.

      WHo are the sites trying to 'rig' the games in favour of? You over another completely annonymous person to them? Why would they have any reason to favour another player over you?

      Anyone who thinks its rigged is stupid

      2k is no sample..
      I make sessions of about 2-5k hands were I am able to run BE or lose few BI, when my all in EV shows that Im up about 13 BI, so.. Thats just simply the way it goes.. (I play sss)
      Just hope you will get it back at some point and thats all..

      *Sigh* And here goes another meaningless "Pokaz iz riggd" debate.

      Poker is not rigged, there is no reason for it to be rigged. It's because more hands are played, therefore more bad beats will be witnessed.

      Just an observation here, but I never see someone start up a thread/discussion about poker being rigged when THEY are the ones that just busted AA with KK? :p
