      Hello thebaptist333,

      Nope, just don't be result oriented. :) Sometimes we gonna face such runs and we can't do much there than just ignore it and not lose our game.

      Best Regards.

      I don't think I'm being results oriented but this has already gone for the last 6000 hands or so.

      AA and KK getting cracked every time, so many PP and no sets, when I do get sets they get cracked :O

      I don't want an upswing, I just want a regular run of cards.

      If I have AK, I never hit the flop and 33 beats me. If I have KK, some donkey will shove A8 and hit AA8 on the flop. That A8 hand actually happened twice to me in the last 3 sessions.

      I'm actually feeling quite comfortable with my play despite this bad run. I think my emotions are holding up quite nicely. It's all about the volume.

      Guess then it's your first biggest downswing. :) 6k hands is pretty standard and small sample. Some play even 6k hands with day.
