      Tough coolers, though the AJ v KK hands, you're real lucky there that he's a fish calling down with a monster like that, even the river.

      Well, I am just shocked. With last two weeks i'm down about 30 buyins. I NEVER believed this is possible.

      I've been thinking of making a video of my session for you to review it, if some1 is bothered to watch it.

      Playing BSS? You really need to review your game, and play less tables. That can't be just bad luck.

      Hi Nitrub,

      sad thing that you are running that bad. I really suggest to post more hands in the sample hand forums. Not only suck outs or very difficult hands, also hands where you are unsure if you played them correct, even if it is just a very small pot. Furthermore I suggest to comment on the hands of others, this really improved my game a lot, so it could help you as well.

      Best regards,
      TribunCaesar

      This is a fraction of my latest playings. All of those "seriously cool" beats I had on 1 day.

      Well, yesterday I managed to earn 150$ @ NL10 over 3k hands and I'm back at NL25. From now on I will have shorter sessions, 4 tables, and analyzing shortly after each session.

      Reading this takes me off tilt. I thought i hit the bad beats hard with AA/KK but having this many is just...... :evil:

      You are of course only showing the bad beats, we all get them, MANY of them, over the course of a week. How many winning hands/folded hands in between all of those?

      I've had similar rotten luck lately, mostly in sngs where donkeys thrive (not me, them, obviously :P ) I've had AA, KK and QQ continuously kicked to death, and I play them different each time. I'm not shy about folding QQ to a paired board if there's mad raising going on.

      I've had AA rivered more than a few times by the likes of 69os catching a low straight on the river ... bah.

      I do have to ask myself "Am I doing something wrong here?" as I know I've actually been playing better later than I used to, so it's not me who's doing wrong, it's my opponents fishing against the odds.

      Bad luck but, you'll come back. After a bad downswing must come a great upper ;)

      this is just sick. anyway how long were this sessions? i guess to get that kind of beats you have to be playing very long and playing that long when running that bad is a recepy for disaster.

      or at least that's what ivey says

      I think you should re-read the article "how to play post flop" in the strategy section,also pls bear in mind big pairs are only TOP pair in NL which need to be improved to win at showdown,TOP PAIR IS BOARDER LINE !!some of the hand you played well !!,If re-look at the hands you played you can see which ones you could have laid down and saved yourself some money. You need to learn how to play CHECK/FOLD,CHECK/CALL the turn line+CHECK/FOLD the river line.YOU SHOULD ALSO LOOK AGAIN AT THE ODDS/OUTS SECTION
      Your doing OK, :) but if you get called after your c-bet,YOU NEED TO SLOWDOWN AND RE-EVALUATE YOUR HAND .Its better to win a small pot than lose a big one, think of your implied odds and learn to let your big pairs go and you will become a better player.Im not criticising your play , just trying to help,we all get bad beats that are just sick at times but if you re-look at them you can see that WE made the bad decision.ASK THE COACHES IF YOUR UN SURE HOW TO PLAY A HAND IN CERTAIN WAY,THERE MORE THAN WILLING TO HELP. GOOD LUCK ! :) :)
