      Instead of spending your time analysing who's running lucky and then posting their hands, you should spend that time studying and posting YOUR hands in evaluation forums.

      EDIT: I just don't see any point in posting these. Neither you're on a downswing nor you should care about that guy...

      Most of my hands in that session were straightfoward so didn't feel the need to post any for evaluation. And since there isn't a "bad beat" section in "Ups, Downs & Psychology" I figured the closest thing was downsings and rather than going and tilting at cash tables because I was a little frustrated I took a break and posted this to vent. K?

      Well, if that helps you, than fine :)

      Even if you don't have anything to post on evaluation, you can go through your games and analyse your play. You take your self off those bad beats and you might find some mistakes in your game :)
