      This is just pissing me off now. BE for over 10k hands, cant do shit. Every time I have a made hand of any kind that flush card comes on the river. Havent hit a set in weeks, even straights and flushes are rare. Close to packing cashgames in.

      No offence, but I think you definately need to look at your game.

      weeks? work on volume ;d 10k hands is NOTHING.

      Poker is fluctuation, there are up&downs and BE periods that happen to players of every level.

      We don't have that much influence on our money results in short term ( yes 20k is short term, its 1 week of play on zoom e.g.) as we would like to have. So just instead of wasting energy, time(money) and worsening your mental state stop giving a f*** how you run.

      The sooner you will accept the reality which is that you won't win every session, that you might get and if you are playing long enough you probably will get a 100-150k run bad or even worse. If you take it as a fact and think over every decision separately it will be much easier for you to endure these periods.

      Play on stakes you can afford to run bad and if your EVwinrate is good enough you won't get broke. So good BRM and constant improvement of game.

      Stop looking to cashier every 10 minutes or after every big hand, just focus on good decisions, not feeding your ego or the fact you just got a bad beated last 3 hands in a row by some aggro donk.

      Thats only my BE stretch. Normally can do 2k/day or about 12k/week (i usually take a random day off) but ive had a fair amount of uni work recently so volume goes to shit.

      The rest of your post was a solid read though, cheers.

      Why? I dislike posts like this, because you criticise, but not constructively. It would be really nice if you could say where to look at exactly, and why.

      You're running good now. Wait 'till you start running bad, that will be quite a ride.
