      Fold?

      I am in the biggest downswing ever, in 1200 hands 22 stacks down. I play the same way as before, (was almost every day going in plus in NL50), but now I hit so often nuts, (sets, straights, flushes) but my opponent has each time better hand. aslo lost 14 all ins in a row, and the worst thing is 6 times I had 80% equity preflop (was going only QQ+, AK all in).
      So I dont know what to do now, how to stop it. I am making breaks almost each 10 minutes (when I lose stack) and playing just 2 tables all the time (speed poker) to avoid getting tilted. Is it better to play lower limits, like NL2 until the downswing goes away?

      AS the solution to the downswing I switched to playing normal table speeds, in titan (in order to loose slower, and not get tilted). I noticed there are no normal no limit holdem tables, but just omaha and pot limit holdem. I started playing 4 tables, and big surprise, there is no single regg, all huge fish playing. In speed poker, NL50 I can say it is just full of reggs, sometimes a fish joins.
      what do you think, is it good if I play in future just pot limit holdem, since it is full of fish?
      Here is one example.

      Here is one example hand, I just started, and saw that this guy goes all in with any hand postflop. Again, my downswing, cant do anything.

      I dont think im ever folding qq here. Huge 3b doesnt look like kk and aa to me so i think qq is almost always the best hand ans calling such a huge raise is not an option so jamming is fine.

      Abt your downswing - move down one limit and play a little. Review your database extensively

      Well if what u say is true then do it and stop playing speed poker for the next 2 months. If u make more money here then dont go back.
