      Not chronological order, but they all happened between 12AM and 8AM tonight. And I only sucked out twice.. =(

      There were more hands, but these were the most annoying, since they happened in like 2 hrs, the whole bunch of 'em.

      Let me know if I misplayed a hand(I fail to see how you can misplay KK and AA tho..:P )

      Some things in life are bad
      They can really make you mad
      Other things just make you swear and curse.

      i thought i had a bad day on monday i think it was, but not as bad as that.

      did you walk under a ladder, crack a mirror or something like that to have that amount of bad luck.

      cant say i would have played anything that much differently.

      hope your luck changes for the better, and soon!!

      bugger of a session...can commiserate, having something similar at the moment.

      every pocket gets called by higher pocket, AK unimproved and have to lay down, AK with K high flop, calling station has KK..

      just keep your head up and keep plugging away, has to improve at some point :)

      Thanks guys, appreciate it!

      The strange thing about that night was that - even with all those hands - I still came out on top with about 2BI ;D

      I'm now at $210 12-tabling NL25 4-5hrs a day, running at around 9BB/100 on average! So I'm pretty stoked, while still fearing the infamous 'downswing' *shiver*.

      I am doing great, apart from the 1300 hands I played today with only $10 winnings =(

      I have 4.6k hands in elephant on NL25 as of today, plus those 2,5k hands from when I used PT3. So in total like 7k hands or so on NL25; and I've made about $150 on NL25 in 7k hands. (also cashed in a couple MTTs and some SnGs). Withdrew my BR at ftp of $150 today, also from NL25 SSS grinding.

      ON A QUEST FOR $300 AND NL50!!!!!! When/if I reach this goal, I'll probably start my blog. Already have a name for it! -> Fish'n'Chips(and ninjas!!!)

      =D

      9bb/100 hands is insane winning rate for SSS, dude. If you can keep it above 4 you're the star.

      Keep it up!

      Actually hand #2 and #5 are the one's that are well played. I had reads on them, they were raising EVERY time someone limped. So I limped and 3-bet shoved all-in.

      But yeah, shouldn't limp, in sss, ever, unless you have a read, that tells you, that he's gonna, raise, 90% sure, you can limp, iz oki, afaik, *nod self*. Ok I'm done. :f_confused:
