      Maybe it's just time to give up... I love the game, and I love to play, but this is really taking the piss.... I can honestly say during this swing I went in ahead at least 75% of the time, and I have been reviewing every session and almost every hand lately..... I found some of my HH's that I thought I lost when my laptop had to be formatted, and added those too.

      Check this shit out.

      Highest limit on this graph NL25, lowest NL2... Sticking to BRM... And SSS rules with a few BSS hands played, but only on NL2 and I am up on those... Lol.

      Bankroll now stands at $30..... Sigh :(

      Downswing suck but you can get through them.

      40000 hands at that losing rate is not a downswing unless you are literally the unluckiest person in the world, focus on learning and getting better to make yourself a winning player first

      heh? what's so bad about -1BB/100 over 40k? that's normal if you don't have a huge edge.

      True u can rebuild, i went on mad monkey tilt from $150~ to $34 n managed to get it up to over $300 now. Also turned $3 into $28 (ongoin process) so I believe nothin is impossible. You should ban yourself for a few days, do somethin u enjoy totally poker unrelated to take ur mind off it. Then study ur ass off n try to find any leaks u have, and improve ur game in any way u can. Wish u the best of luck.

      thats a hell of a lot of hands not to be winning, i think that over 40k you must be doing something wrong, especially considering it that time period you only ever peaked at +$30 ish and that was after 6k hands or so, in the last 34k you certainly shouldn't have gone this long playing perfectly.

      Variance is a pain in the ass, but tricking yourself into thinking variance is an excuse for bad play is not the way to go i have to say. At least the positive factor is, you are doing something wrong and it can be put right..
