      Has it ever happened to you, losing 5 BIs in a few hundred hands and wonder how the hell did you lose so many BIs? I just reviewed my hands and I only played bad on a few hands, yet I'm down 5 BIs in just 2 hours of playing...

      Believe me, PLO is a LOT worse :D I managed to drop 10BI in 10 minutes at PLO once. Sickening :D

      If it helps. I mass-multitable. Losing 5 BIs is frequent in 5 minutes.

      But you mean 5 SS BIs, or 5x100 BBs?

      That's pretty sick, I must never forget to never play PLO :s_rolleyes:

      Anyway, all the profit I made the last weeks was cleaned today and yesterday. Poker is sick, things like this make me remember that I'll never earn profit in a straight line, and have to accept variance or just quit poker...

      Yes, i mean the full 100bb ones. 24 tabling 6max can also be sick. Just try learn not to care about wtf happened with your bling :s_cool:

      Biggest mistake a poker player might do is just look at hh from hands he has lost. Try looking at some big pots you won too.

      btw, winning 5bis is also pretty frequent. Remember: "there is no swing".
