      In a last 9 days i am down from 497$ to 293$. Stepped from NL50 to NL25 at 390$ to cushion the downswing, but still i can't win shit. I play advanced SSS with my own few expansions. It worked ok till now. I tend to play a bit looser if a table is tight. But the last few days i got my AA cracked 9 times, yea 9 times. Same with KK, AK, QQ. When i get KK someone with Ax calls my raise and the board is 100% A x x. I know it's variance but it all seems as i am cursed or something. I know what i am whining about is old story, but hey that's what this part of forum is for :rolleyes:
      I don't know how am i gonna earn back almost 200$. It was hard earned money of two months playing. Ok 132$ was bonus. I guess Party poker wants their bonus back. I guess should withdraw when i had 497$ and move to another platform.
      Funny at the end of each month there are much more downswings then at the start of the month, according to whinning posts.
      Maybe it's how online poker casinos work. Someone wins at the start of the month and looses at the end of the month, meanwhile other guy looses at start of the month and wins back at the end. It's all purpose of giving ppl a false hope that they can earn something, but important thing is that they generate rake.
      I am babbling here i guess, maybe it's all factor of luck and skill. How the hell would then some players be succesfull...?

      I just hope this downswing ends soon. Good luck to everyone.
