      Hi 23devil23,

      All members are of course entitled to their own opinions and we at PokerStrategy like to encourage discussion and value players thoughts.

      I have had to just edit one small comment in your post, I'm sure you understand why we cannot allow comments that single out certain nations, races, or strong language or views which single them out.

      I trust you understand and appreciate your co-operation with this.


      In terms of all forms of turbo cash games, they really do play totally different to normal cash games and it sometimes takes a while to adjust to them.
      Obviously as with all forms of poker, the variance will even out over a significant volume of hands, but the swings can be extremely hard to take.

      Take a break, review a few more hands, including some where you came from behind to take them down and then when calm have another go or try a different variant of course. Each to their own, I must admit I can never get on with cash games personally, but a lot of players will love and do well on them.

      Good luck & enjoy your poker,


      Bart

      Another don't-play-zoom-is-too-f****-rigged post.

      I'm so sick of fish not understanding what variance is...

      Anyway, if this helps the OP, I have 50k hands in zoom NL2 with a 4BB/100 winrate, I went through 22k hands breaking even and I'm currently 10BI under EV... playing MSS by the way...

      But I don't complain, I ignore variance and put some volume instead of complaining about bad beats...
