      Yep, 2 days downswing report, and most funny fact is that i got four pocket rockets and lost them all to bad beats. Yup, you hear it right, i got AA four times and lost all, most hummiliating was vs one fish who allined me with 68o and managed to win by hitting fullhouse. I mean, what are the odds ?
      Beside that i lost multiple KK, QQ and so on.

      To sum i lost more than i earned during last 2 days of weekend (took me quite some time to make that money hyh), but i guess that's why it's called downswing.

      What do you thin i should do now, leave it for today or just wait hour and play again, when i cool off ?

      I'd suggest leaving it for an hour, then start again with 1 or 2 tables. So you can get some real good reads on your opponents. Play the people for a while, not just the cards. It helped me through a recent downswing.

      Lost one more AA, one only managed to steal blinds.

      I'm really stopping to belive in those hands :P

      happens all the time.

      I would rest or just train (as in exercise) and then start playing but alot more tighter. I've lost with AA numerous times. But thats poker. Heat up by playing " play money " or micro limits
