      Oh man, that feeling when you spend 4 hours grinding up 4-5 buyins on purely marginal hands, because you almost never get a monster and every time you DO get a monster, you lose. It's a complete joke, because trying play your non-monsters on micro stakes is nigh impossible with all the fish and overplaying exploiters.

      1. Not a monster, but a great read gone bad: Deep stack all-in with AK against fish on K whatever flop. He's got KQ offsuit and gets Q on both turn AND river.
      2. Flop a set 777, I go all-in and get called by 99 how hits a set on turn.
      3. Flop the nut flush and lose against K8 player who hits K8 on flop and get a King on turn.

      Now I lost far more hands than these, but those were standard hands, semi-monster against a very wet board (so I didn't commit), or more monsters (but with several hands in-between). What's your experience with no. of all-in bad beats in a row?

      When you feel bad about them bad beats - do some physical exercises. Go running or to the gym for an hour or two.

      About my longest streak of bad beats...

      I'm not counting anymore, but i think it was something around 10 - 20.

      Who cares anyway?

      Well, what do you expect at micro stakes at Pokerstars - especially after they introduced the antefests? Normalcy? :D

      Well, the good thing is that I don't have to feel alone anymore. :coolface:
      But yeah, I appreciate your feedbacks because it strengthens my confidence that I'm only doing something wrong AFTER I tilt and go crazy.
