      It's not a downswing, just few interesting big pots in one day. Felt really getting raped by PokerStars, because loosing all big pots with big hands, bad beats and coolers. The sickest daily run in terms of loosing with monsters so far since i play, i wonder how i managed loosing only $130:

      Nice post. Good to hear you fixed your tilt and started winning again :D
      I thought you played very good, I think a bad player loses more than 130 tokens.
      Some hands you got cold decked, *shrug*, what can you do? Thats poker. Some hands you got outdrawn by a playable hand, *shrug*, you can blame fixed limit for that. <--(joke :D ) And the rest you faced off against total chum, with chummy hands and chummy draws. Mostly they lose, thats why they are chum and you can scoop back all your tokens the next day, because they are still chasing, and you are still playing solid poker.
      My advice: Look back on this post/session/period of time and reflect and recontextualize.
      Ask your self "am I happy when my QQ outdraws a set?"
      "Am I happy when I flop quads and someone starts betting into me?"
      "Am I happy I am not a chum and don't play A2o-A5o?"
      Thats poker, thats poker and hey look, the chum just gave you your tokens back, plus interest! Perhaps you will see there is no need for tilt, its all in your head.
      Happy chum hunting.

      The same thing happened to me on 2/4. One day I built my roll up and the next day I got almost identical hands to the ones you posted. It just makes you sick when you loose all of your profits in a single bad day like that :/

      And congrats on losing only 130$, that's quite an accomplishment :)
