      My bad...thought CO had called as well. I rushed my read on the HH and thought he had QQ as well...have to learn to slow down a bit

      I feel for you. Been happening a lot to me as well lately. My KK getting cracked by someone playing A2o and hitting a wheel...AK getting no flop help and villain has 94s and hits his bottom pair. Frustrating, but I know I'm making the right decisions, just getting unlucky.

      Now if I can only learn to fold 99 and AJ preflop OOP, I'll be okay ;)

      A downswing doesn't last one day imo. That's just a variance loosing session if you play your A-game, A downswing is when it goes on and on and on for weeks ;)
