      :(
      On a downswing now.
      Lost 10 matches in a row (HU matches). I had buy in for around 20 matches; so right now I need to quit it because only 10 buyins left.

      Some were really really bad beats.
      My bankroll has really really diminished...

      Looks like I'll change back to FR games for now...

      That'd be swell.
      As I wrote before; its not just this downswing, I'm a bad HUSNG player. Just breakeven. So I need all the help I can get. I watched the silver videos yesterday and thought that I had learned the game so I decided to grind and ... lost half my bankroll.

      I'll admit I tilted the last games. Regretting it now.

      Can I post my hands here please? I don't like the Hand Evaluation section :(

      Oh just remembered about the 10 cent SNGs!
      I used to be good at those with my all my ICM drills...

      They seem perfect for my bankroll right now. About 70 buyins!!!

      Hey Kruger32!

      Sorry to hear that you're running this bad. Although I do wonder if you lose 10BI's and thats 50% of your roll, then you're playing with really bad BRM.

      Maybe your BR isn't even big enough to play to lowest HU SnG's, but I guess you shouldn't play them at all. Just grind it up first playing FR or SH and then you back to HU when your BR is big enough.

      Best of luck on the tables!

      Thanks you guys and ladies (yeah you Ingrid :) ) ....
      Will post hands here.

      @RasTweet: Yeah, I was like one of those guys who says; that won't happen to me.
      I played around 100 matches and didn't have to face a downswing. Was always breakeven. I just assumed that once I was good enough I would easily be able to increase my bankroll.


      Switching to SNGs. I used to be good at them.

      Anyway, good news too guys. I am being staked AND coached on HUSNGs by someone!
      (Yeah I'm not telling who it is)

      So YIPEEEE!!!

      Hey guys,
      If anybody is interested I will send you XML of 2 HUSNG games and please comment on my play.
      You can use any hand replayer; Universal Hand Replayer Works fine.

      (How to send files; do I have to email them?)

      Hi Kruger!

      Maybe you could post this in the strategy forums? There might be some ppl who are interested and who knows you find someone to do some sweat sessions with! Gotta love sweat sessions!

      Hey Patrick,
      Not Good

      Two days ago started playing lowest stakes FL games, because of the really really small balance at one of the iPoker clients. Using another client to play SNGs.

      FR FL 2c/4c Lost 80 BB in 600 hands. Definitely not due to bad cards. (Too less hands to conclude anything I know, but I know it was due to bad postflop skills)
      I was click-call click-call all the time.
      Made me realize that I truly suck and need to work really hard. Will play 2k hands or until I lose 300 BB to analyze my mistakes.
      I just realized that playing NL I was hiding behind wild bet sizings to push good players out of the pots. And SNGs require no postflop (for me). It's just hand-selection early and push or flop later...
      I truly suck at postflop. Playing FL has given me the chance to improve my game by leaps and bounds. Has made me a thinking player.

      Currently reading all the FL articles with zeal.
      Don't understand however, I played with the FL SHC religiously. Is my postflop so bad? But I'll wait till I have around 2k hands. (But I must really suck, the graph is sloped all the way down, no spikes :( )

      Is there anyway I can see my luck in Pokertracker 3.

      SNGs are running OKAY.
      I'm expecting to make money from SNGs this month. Got SNG Wiz; my game should improve drastically.

      Stopped playing NLHU. Playing FLHU playmoney on Pokerstars, just for the fun. At the highest stakes the game are supposed to be same like the lowest stakes.
      And have to agree FLHU is lots of FUN!

      I know I'm not supposed to play many styles at once, but I'm enjoying it.
      But FL is my definite focus from now on.

      How's your game going?
      Please feel free to give any tips and advice.

      OK don't answer that question.
