      I am having terrible downswing at nl20 SSS right now. Before that i won that limit with 6-7bb/100 easy on long distance. And now after 800 hands i have -9.5 bb/100. Many premium hands AQ, QQ, AJ have big minus. Wtf? I am playing same but lose. I dont know how to behave in downswing and start losing even more. I have question to coach why it happened to me? and when i will start winning. It really hurts me much.

      Hi mbrut,

      And now after 800 hands i have -9.5 bb/100.


      10k - up to 20k hands breakeven/swings are absolutely typical for sss
      its poker

      AQ, QQ, AJ have big minus. Wtf?


      varience

      I am playing same but lose.


      its not the same then) there is no need to play any looser then SHC suggests on nl 25.

      I dont know how to behave in downswing and start losing even more.

      you don't need to behave anyhow
      just deal with it and play your normal game

      I have question to coach why it happened to me?

      why not? i don't know any poker player, who haven't experienced downswing

      and when i will start winning.

      this is a little bit out of my mind
      unfortunately, there is no answer)

      It really hurts me much.

      yes, it hurts
      but you have to learn how to deal with it
      it comes with experience

      work on your game
      post hands, evaluate your game, watch videos, visit coachings
      that's the best advice you can get

      hope you will recover soon

      good luck
