      Villain is a big fish, playing 60/11 over 140 hands

      Btw, i have quick question. I moved to NL5 2 months ago, started out crushing it, had 1 losing session from 100 dollars to 230 dollars, started playing some NL10, dropped to 190, started playing NL5, and downloaded a HUD. since then, i have been losing a lot over 11k hands at NL5. I'm around 10 Buy-ins down, and i have never had a big downswing like this.

      Do you think i just got lucky when i first started playing NL5, and i actually am not able to beat it atm? or am i just getting unlucky now, over 11k hands. Could it be the fact that i have acquired a HUD that makes me play worse?

      Any thoughts?

      Preflop I'd make it at least pot size.

      On the flop I'd bet around $0.7.

      Turn brings along some other draws, and considering we only have a little over pot size bet left, I'd shove here.

      As played, when he shoves it really sucks, but given stack sizes I don't really think we can fold here.

      To your question: 11k hands are small enough to just say it's variance. You might have been on a heater, but I can't really tell you unless I see your stats.

      Do you think you would be able to look at my stats for the last 11k hands? i don't have anything before that unfortunately.
