      The worst thing is to see your pocket kings getting ripped by a small set...

      800BB FL. Luckily I was 300 BB up (on the same limit) before I went down else I would have had a much lower BR now. ;)

      Around 12k on NL400/600. Took me 3 days to lose it and 3 more to get it back.
      After a while i started spewing chips left and right mostly on NL400 and needless to say i was playing nonstop.

      This is the hand that caused ignition :


      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)
      Hero:
      $1.396
      BU:
      $0
      CO:
      $655
      BB:
      $729

      3/6 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7:heart: , 7:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $21.00, BB calls $15.00.

      Flop: ($42.00) T:spade: , T:club: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $30, BB raises to $78.00, Hero raises to $244.00, BB raises to $708.00 (All-In), Hero calls $464.00.

      Turn: ($1458.00) 4:spade:
      River: ($1458.00) 2:spade:


      Final Pot: $1458.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows [ 7h, 7c ] two pairs, Tens and Sevens
      BB shows [ 9s, 7s ] a flush, Ten high
      BB wins $1,456 USD with a flush, Ten high.



      Making a good read and losing to an overaggresive retard who decided to 5-bet push with no overcard outs and a small flushdraw on paired board just made me snap :D

      About 250$ or 500BB NL50. It came right after my "let's play with 18 $ outside of BRM and see where we end up"-upswing and before my 200$ fifth place in an MTT, so it's been pretty harmless :)

      I'm going through my biggest downswing right now: about -1400 big bets (about 4500$). Maybe 1000BB if you substract spewing and tilting. Time to start recovering I'd say.

      Nearly $200 out of my $600 bankroll in 2-3 days. Not counting the few $20-50 wins I had during that time and also have lost. Still going strong, losing to 6Ts AK to AQ etc.

      Of course it's taken me on tilt occasionally so making a few quite stupid calls doesn't help the cause either. Need to learn to fold good cards even against the donks.

      NL players should talk about stacks only because their BB swings are bigger.

      500BB at FL should be 10-15 stacks (full stacks = 1000-1500BB) at NL is that correct?

      I think 500BB is more like 20 buyins
