      About -32 buyins since last saturday. This is my first downswing since I started playing. I hope it ends soon. Im not playing badly, majority of the time all of my money gets into the pot when im ahead, and then get outdrawn. Was playing in a tourney a couple of nights ago. Very late in the tourney, theres about 15 people left, im in about 10th chip position. I get aces, player before me moves in with 77. 7 comes on the flop, didn't improve and I lost most of my chip stack in which I could not recover.

      Seems like my opponents are hitting that two outer against quite often.

      NL10 and $1-2 SnG on fulltilt kill you with rake and fees. IF your roll is $150 I advise NL25 and $5 SnG. In fact, do not drop back down once you start until your roll hits $50. IF (and its rare, FT is very chummy) you hit $50, then drop down and re-start the whole process. Play well for long enough, and follow BRM, you will inevitably move up, and not go broke.

      Im down 9 BI today at NL10.

      AA cracked by AKo - allin pre
      AA cracked by 33 - was reraised allin pre.
      JJ cracked by KQo - rainbow board and I have topset, he calls my allin and makes runner runner straight
      A LOT OF TIMES I've been having QQ /KK and met KK/AA.

      And that's just today. Fulltilt-poker hates me : (

      with $150 playing SSS on NL25 is normal anyway.

      I don't think the rake for $2 sngs is very high.

      the $1 sngs are very easily beatable even with 25% rake.

      Yep, NL25 is too profitable on fulltilt, I mean I have won like 5/30 flips and got sucked out over and over again , and yet I'm break even in the last 12k hands :)

      with bss and rakeback I'm up something actually :D

      Absolutely Huge now. would guess up to 60 BI, but it Definately beats my last Downswing. I've just been losing money for about 100k hands now on all limits I play on PartyPoker. (NL25 NL50, NL100) Strangely my roll is higher than it used to be due to bonuses and promos.

      Almost every hand I play either

      1) Gets coolered
      2) Get sucked out on.

      I think the only hands that I actually win are where I suck out myself.
