      Just been smashed to pieces again by the variance machine on stars, so tilt withdrew my balance. Left $3 in there.

      I ran far worse on that site than any of the other dozen I play.

      Just lost 5 buyins where I ran a big pair or AK into Aces. Had AA once and chopped with AA...lols

      Over last 2 months I have lost approx 50 hands when holding QQ or JJ, over all poker formats

      Off back to the god awful site that is ipoker

      If it is variance, it could happen in any other site anyway, so you cannot run away.
      But sometimes, there are way less fish in a poker site than in another. I believe you can make a lot more profit if you table select well in Stars.

      Hey thehagistig !

      I'm sorry to hear you are running this bad:( Variance can be a bitch.

      But this is the perfect moment to review your sessions and learn from your mistakes. I suggest you post some hands in our hand evaluation forums.

      Hello there thehagistig,

      don't worry to much. As Raskolnikov said. Champions stand up one more time than the rest.

      Here you will find some free poker money and why not start from there again?

      Good luck and i hope variance will hit you again, but this time positive variance.

      Oh i'm used to variance, back when I played stts fairly seriously had plenty of downswings.

      Just have a poor tolerance to them in my aging years..lol

      Reason I haven't played much poker the past few years, us 'recs' get bored by 3 outters/cold decks and do something else.
      Despite all that i'm still in profit over the past couple of months, just felt the tilt ready to boil over so withdrew. Ridic I know

      May even start a blog here, see if I can go on a heater with 3 bucks!!!

      That's ok! I'm also feeling a bit of a downswing at the moment anyway :)
      Indeed, I feel it is even necessary to take a hit from a downswing, to pressure us into studying and develop even harder.
