      So sick.... Im playing short [nl 50] stack strategy and am down 500$ these last 2 months.... maximum hands that i played in one day this month is 278. I dont even play every day now and little hands as i used to play at least 5K hands a day. If i played 5K a day now i probably would have been broke already. I just come loose 30$ a day when i play in some 200 hands and quit.... And this aint over as i see from the last hand. Am getting so frustrated that it looks i cant win any single penny anymore.... what do you do guys when you are on a downswing?

      I'm surpised at his re-raise pre-flop with KTo, considering he's playing aganist an tight short stack player. Although i think you were fine with just calling him to see the flop. Its really unlucky to see those two cards fall on the river though. :(

      Keep going dude..!

      Mafaz. I have some problems like you, but I always play exactly with the SSS. So I'd probably had bet 4BB + 1BB for limper, which is $2.50. If he re-raised after the $2.50 bet, than it's easy to go All-In pre-flop. I probably have pushed here, instead of have a difficult decision after the flop if it brings a Q K or A.

      Cheers,
