      Just one of the many reasons I've heard when people have called my UTG raise with 24s. Not to mention the people cold calling raises with Ax, Maybe I'm the fish at these limits, but I seem to be losing to a lot of people catching the cards that they need to counterfeit my hand.




      Back to the drawing board I suppose.

      I try not to. But it's hard to keep yourself from tilting when you turn over a flush and your opponent has a straight flush with something like 35s.

      Oh well!

      I can kind of see a pattern in the graph, where it's slowly up, crashing down, slowly up again, crashing down again. Maybe I'm overplaying some of my hands and that causes me to lose a lot more than I can grind back. :f_eek:

      I lost about as much as you last night, feeling awful about it too. Luckily this isn't the end of your poker career, you still have money left and can earn everything back over time.

      this things happen, don't start tilting when they do

      tbh if i perceive you as tight enough then I'd call your UTG raises with all sorts of stuff, 24s included.

      Well your graph is like only 1k hands...It's pritty standard for some swings to go on for 5k hands. So dont try and come to any conclusions based on this small sarmple.

      Just remember for every negative theres a positive, make sure your doing everything you can to be playing your A game and things will turn around when there ready to...it's poker and unforunatley the bitch that is varriance is something we have to deal with...gotta let the fish think they know how to play.

      Good luck and i hope things turn around for you soon :D

      Blue is the nuts.

      Oh, and this hand just happened. I love checking the turn to an aggressive opponent, they always try and buy the pot!
