      You're still up $160 from a card game ffs. You could be dead broke living under a bridge drinking water from a river and eating food you find in garbage cans, with no bed, no telly, no internet porn and no booze.

      Please tell us more how running $300 or woteva under ev makes you feel bad.

      I wrote this: "You're still up $160 from a card game ffs. You could be dead broke living under a bridge drinking water from a river and eating food you find in garbage cans, with no bed, no telly, no internet porn and no booze.

      Can you please point at the part of the text where I state that the whole forum has the same opinion as I do? I did say "tell us more" (which seems to have got your attention), but that doesn't mean that everyone has the same opinion as I do. It's just a request.

      You really suck at understanding a text dude.

      If you think that's bad... and it probably can't get worst...




      Think again! ;) BTW, this is 100NL and 200NL. :)

      Just be happy you're a RB pro like me. Don't worry. Be Happy!

      Alficor1, should i understand u made a joke? 1st of all if you consider pokers as a gambling game i don`t think your place is on this board. 2nd if you didn`t end up here by mistake than start reading some beginner articles. My graph speaks for itself.
      BrokesoBroke, damn i think you should go see a priest or at least a sorceress. That is insane man. The bad part is i got on bwin.pp because of the merger, so no RB. I need to get at least to 50 NL to get a decent 30 RB from bonuses.
      Anyway, if i continue like this i think my graph will be worse than yours, atm i`m 7bb/100 under EV.

      Gl all.

      Variance can be very tricky especially in cash games

      In my opinion if you run good/bad in cashes is much more difficult to calculated because the all ins are much more less and you can control better the flaw of the game or go for maximum value betting 3 streets etc

      These concepts are minimized in sngs. If your graph was in sngs i would tell you run bad. In cash games these may seem bad on one hand but in the other your ''running bad'' may be flawed

      I dont say that you dont run bad or you dont run very bad. I dont take position

      My best advice is to look at big spots and see if you should have done something differently. Generally try to improve your game

      Always remember the better player you will become the ''easier'' downswing you will have

      My 2 cents

      I don't think I'm going to be able to sleep tonight now that I've seen that :f_o: That's 60 BIs below EV for NL200, if there's 100 in there too then it's even higher! I'm never moaning about any downswings I have ever again :f_mad:

      Can you smile and continue the grind after 10 bad beats in a row or do you take a break in between? In other words: how do you prevent going on tilt?

      Spanish people have their own sites so you should not see them @pokerstars.eu...
