      Lately, like the past two weeks, I have been getting fucked straight in the ass. Mainly, it's on Pokerstars, but I play fulltilt also and shit happens there. I can't believe the shit that has happened at Stars and the only thing I can think of to vent the frustration is to post it. It will give a purpose to bad beats ("hey, something new to post in the bitching thread"). I will try to go back through and find some past hands that I think I got fucked and post them, along with the sight that it was on.

      Unfortunately, I am not doing a more constructive or positive thread or blog and am starting one based on bitching and complaining. But if it makes somebody else feel better about their downswing or if maybe constructive feedback is exchanged, it can turn into a positive.

      I am very pissed off right now and am not sure how well I would play if I went so I will probably be posting hands. I was up to ~$700 in my BR and now I am down to ~$350 over the past couple weeks and am very frustrated. I have to go somewhere and do stuff right now. I understand how bitching and complaining is mostly a turn off, but it's either this or punching holes in my wall.

      And believe it or not, there are times when I have had bad beats and not gone on tilt. I am not exactly tilt prone, but I am not tilt resistant. Maybe I will post tilt hands here too.

      I've always wanted to do a blog, but never started one for fear that I wouldn't stick with it. Maybe this is more my cup of tea. I have to go somewhere, so the bitching will not begin until a little while.

      I was going to go back through and find the succession of hands that had me enraged, but I will put it behind me, I'm sure there will be many more. I've been getting hosed on Stars for some time now.

      I think you were lucky, if the players were better - more aggressive you would lose more money.

      btw. - it happens. I am losing last 3 weeks, I am looking at the hands and can believe how he got the 2nd pair/set on the river again.

      good luck!

      This last hand may not have been played optimally and I posted it, but it was the same lucky donk as the previous hand.

      I switched from FL to NL sss btw. The downswing continues at Stars, though.

      Hey man, I think my story is the same, couple of weeks ago I had 700$ BR and I dropped down to 350$ just like you, but I play BSS, I had recovered and doing well again, I wish you the same!
