      you're down 12BI on NL50, that can quite easily happen even without the crazyass monkeytilt that you seem to be on

      First time I'm down this much playing cash games. -12BI GOD DAMN! I just feel like a total failure.. I thought it was just complete bad luck at first, because it seemed like I was running as cold as ice, but then the bluffs got caught and nothing was working.. F.. I read the articles, I watched some videos, can't really see where my leaks are, except for sometimes trying to outplay my opponents with some idiotic floating idea, which never works anyway.. F..

      Oh and BRM is fine.

      12 BI is just nothing, especially NL50SH on ftp, where the play is pretty aggressive. were you expecting never to have a downswing of over 10BI? i had a 26BI downswing last year on ftp NL50SH :)

      LOL I love the 93 hand :D :D that's so tilt inducing hahaha "yes! I rivered my draw!" "OMG" your flop raise is too small here btw and you should check behind turn.

      Well anyway, I just went through a 16 BI downswing on a new limit aswell which put me back on my old limit and breakeven for 2 months. So welcome to the club :tongue:

      Yeah well it's a good thing I was kind of preparing myself for such swings, because I use very conservative BRM (only got HEM on March so $650 wasn't my bankroll when I moved up lol). I didn't prepare myself mentally, though. It's just that starting a new limit on a downswing isn't a good sign. It's probably more than just bad luck, even though I don't notice much difference between the fish on NL25 or NL30 than the one's on NL50, ofcourse there are more players who know wtf they're doing.

      Since his WTS was only 20, I figured he was loose only on the 3betting, not calling side. Guess I was wrong. And yes that river was the catalyst for the 1st post :D

      One of the best rants ever =) ................i have recently taken a similar kick in the nuts moving from NL10 to NL20.

      You do have a large opening range though don't you?
