      Raises where should I fold... correct?

      Together with 2 AA lost to A7 and 77 this makes quite nice results for last 1k hands.

      Nah, you got just unlucky. You played them correctly, is my opinion.

      You seem to have played all hands within the SSS guidelines, so you get top marks for technical play. Personally, I witnessed something similiar myself... big hands lost for a few rounds.... but then just like magic I hit something like 4 sets in a row and bango! All the bad beats vanish back to where they came from.

      As for that many cold-decks in a row... looks like some kind of a tilt-o-meter test to me. Did you pass?

      When any player is on tilt I am never suprized by any number of cold-decks in a row. I was on tilt once, playing everyhand that looked good, I hit every flop, but got outdrawn everytime. I mindlessly ramble on...

      Because of too many losses I quit the session and went back over the hands...

      There was no doubt about AA all-in preflop lost to 77 but I was not sure if I did everything correct with these hands...

      Hopefully it will change soon... at least I manage to finish 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd and 3rd in session of 6 SNGs, so that covered my losses ;)
