      That's exactly what happens when you have a downswing. I had once one where I lost every set for like one week, either against flopped straights, better sets or several backdoors. Try to get through it. It's a part of the game. But make sure you go down a limit when necessary.

      Best regards,

      I agree, in the last days I also have tough days losing set over sets(can't help it). Just stay calm, stop playing if necessary, but things should get better sooner or later if you're playing a good game :)

      Easy raise on the flop and broke on the turn for protection and value.
