      Hey guys I have to post this to let off some steam , im fkn raging !!! :D

      Every 1 gets bad beats and the swings are terrible I know all this but, FFS,

      I play on Pacific network as MR_JAM and I really struggling to cope with the beats I have been getting PRE final table or on the final table...

      In 500 games im in profit just over 3k......BUT it should be at least 10k ( EASY) if it was'nt for such SICK beats in final tables!!

      I have been playing poker for around 3 years now, and been playing professionally for around the last 2-3months,
      throughout that time I have had my fair share of downswings, think the longest Ive had was 6months and I know all about Tilt and controling my emotions ( or trying to) I am only human after all...

      BUT.....OMG , since I have been playing under MR_JAM 500 game's , the sick beats I am getting ON final tables are really getting beyond a joke now..
      ( believe me guys every ft , i end up a shit finish coz of this and come in 7th and shit and im getting KK losing to qq, AKs losing to a5 etc , etc, etc...

      anyways... I was played the 5kg $22 deep stack on pacific PRE FT and this happens lOooOoOOl .......

      I hope that helped.

      I'll probably never play the stakes that you play, but this happens all the time even at the lowest stakes. Take a few days off and do some stuff not poker related for awhile to clear your mind. That's something I've been doing if I ever lose a lot of money/sessions.

      Take Care,

      Aye I know guys sometimes its good to take a break from poker and come back in fresh, I usually play for around 12- 16 hrs per day ....

      I have experienced bad beats before but never like I have been in these final tables which hurts even worse, that was just 1 hand history, but it does get worst, I have also been playing high roller tournaments buy in $109 , which I win sat's to get into and I have been making the final table tables there , ie 1st place £2500 -$9000's etc etc......and getting unreal sick beats , after the 1st few I got I only end up with like $200-$300's, I was like to fair do's that was sick. I'll move on play as norm, then BANG it happens again & again & again,

      Maybe I should try a different network !!!!!!!??????????!!!!!!!!!!

      When you play well, it gets worse.


      Because if you are playing properly, you can ONLY get beat by suckouts.
      Yeah, OK, sometimes you hit the top of villains range, and lose, but that is still OK.

      If you are reading your opponents ranges well, you will be folding when you don't beat his range.

      If you do get the chips in, it is because you know that you are ahead of your opponents range.

      If you are getting it in bad too often, you have a problem.

      if you are getting it in good, but getting sucked out on, you don't.
      Well, yes, you do :) -- but your problem is luck, not skill.
