      Zoom NL2
      Sat down to play "properly":
        Bluffing only when makes good sense
        Play only quality hands with good position
        Stealing OK

      Played, sound, disciplined poker, and lost 4 BI in 300 hands and called it a night.
      Aces cracked twice out of 4 times -- got the blinds the other two.
      Set over set twice
      AQo on BTN, flopped two pair, lost to a rivered set.
      All the big losses came on "properly" played hands.

      And once again, made an entire BI stealing blinds, and 3Betting open raisers IP
      So just your typical zoom day.

      It seems to me that you are on a bit of bad luck, just keep playing solid and you will be on the other end of these situations, but with more profit!!

      First let me state the obvious, 300 hands is not a sample, and when we are talking about zoom poker, definitely not a sample size imho.

      Since you play against "random" opponents and NL2 pool goes from 600-1.5k entries, in 300 hands you might have played with the same players five hands tops.

      Still, i have a little ZOOM NL2 graph for you, this was playing very abc:

      Just remember, there are no swings, it is all in your mind. And also, remind that winning aces pre-flop more than 80% of the time is sorta "good luck" too.

      Ur gonna laugh out loud of your hands at NL2 once you remind them in a near future, trust me.

      Thanks for the encouragement.
      I played another 300 hands after supper.

      Won back a shade less than a BI, but did it entirely by blind stealing and small pots. The big difference of course, is that my W$SD went from 30% before supper to 60% after.

      Well, that and my Fold Flop vs CBet went way higher too :)

      I'm trying not to 3Bet CBets so much.
      Fun when they fold, but you can get tangled in messy showdowns that way.
