Hi all I think I just had my first down swing in my cash game, up till the start of April I was $76 in profit but up to the 16th of this month I drop $44, every time I hit a good hand over pair's trips or better I got out drawn on the turn and river I couldn't do anything I think I played the hands correctly got my chips in with the best hand and watched it dwindle.


All I could do was play the best I could and yesterday and today so far I now $2 up for the month so I think the down swing has ended ( I hope it has finger crossed ) I play nl0.04 BSS and short stack SnG's the SnG's have keep my br going during the down swing in my cash game.

some examples.
