      I play a lot of NL 5CD with my two sons, and I can confirm that it's pretty much rigged wherever you play it.

      Yea. Low variance? my balls. losing higher 2 pair to lower 2 pair 2 times in a row is low variance obv (in addition to numerous other suckouts)

      It does astound me how often an 11:1 shot will hit just when I have trips.

      However, when I searched my database, (118K hands) the number is actually pretty close.

      What is happening to you is that they are all happening at once.

      You need to be very careful that you do NOT change away from +EV play just because you MIGHT get sucked out on. If you do, then your downswing will REALLY begin.

      If you have a look at the last graph I posted in my blog, you can see that there are some fairly long, fairly large downswings.

      Cheers,

      I'd stick with chess if I were you. You are obviously cursed.

      except I don't really like chess :f_frown:

      Coincidentally I've seen the word 'curse' lots of times the past 2 days. Should be a sign

      Sounds like you need to be exorcised. You don't want to end up like this.
