      Well, it' tough.

      But look it this way:

      In the first hand, you were behind before the flop, and behind on the flop. Then you got 'lucky' with your flush. But your foe still had a couple of outs, and it would have been a tough laydown for him on the turn with a set.

      In the second hand, you only were ahead on the flop. When you bet on a board like 6-T-T, from your opponents point of view, you could have done this with a wide range of hand, and he also had a gutshot. So I don't think he should have laid his hand down after your bet on the flop. I also would take a shot on the fourth street and then got out unimproved.

      In the third hand, the SB interpreted your action as a stealraise (maybe he had reasons for that :-)) and it's OK for him to strike back and defend his blind. There was also this MP2 whom he could have pushed out, actually not knowing he was slowplaying his Jacks.
      Well, then started this raising war and the pot was obviously too big to leave :-)). Then came a rags flop, a little coordinated, but after that action before the flop, each one could have been put on high cards by his opponents. But as I said, the pot was too big to leave, so the outcome was predestined for a "divine decision" ... :-))

      What do the experts think?

      I know 3 BI is very standard, what made me tilt was that it happened in less than 100 hands (about 15-20 min). I'm used to losing up to 15 BI, but maybe after some 1000-1500 hands, making some big-donkey mistakes.


      On hand 1, before the flop I have a tiny bit more equity than 22. He got lucky, hit his 2, had about 10 outs on the turn, so I don't blame him for calling my raise. Was a coinflip, so no complains, it just sucks hard losing with the nut-flush.

      On hand 2, I got about 85% equity after the flop, and it's not nice to get called by an 4-outer with has to hit the turn.

      Hand 3... No need for further comments. :D


      Sorry for the whining, was my 'fastest' downswing so far (after about 15k hands), but I slept over it, and I'm ready to go fishing for the weekend. :)

      i lost 2 BI's (BSS) in back-to-back hands once, both up against AQ.

      one hand i had AA and the other AK. -_-

      it happens, and all you can do is say nh and hope your opponents keep playing that way.

      good players always bounce back. ;)

      I'll add a positive ending to this post. :)

      Just finished one of my biggest (and fastest) sessions so far. Here are the stats:

      Hands: 181
      BB: + 156.15
      BB/100: +86.27 :D :D

      Let's say there won't be more complains about -3 BI sessions, even if they happen in 10 hands. :evil:

      Last 10 hands were sick today: AA, KK and AQs for a +4 BI upswing. :tongue:

      to make a downswing easier IMO, It's like you never get lucky and catch a 2 outer or a gutshot. you just changed position. You can't win them all.
