      Remember my earlier post about accidentally joining 70 something sng... well im feeling this downswing veeery badly.

      Just today five times my AA have been taken down. I reraised a guy preflop and then went all in he called with J9 offsuit and he hit a straight.

      I already gone down a limit but this variance seems to have an vendetta towards me... Really need some cheering up right about now.

      hi gunnimar,

      i remember that post.

      btw, would like to know if you're using the correct BRM for sng's. They're know to be a very swing game so 5 AA broken e pretty standard.

      if you think that is affecting your game, stop and relax.

      regards,

      Standard procedure man, stop playing today, start again tomorrow IF you feel okay about the loss, nothing worst than feeling you have to chase a loss. Its gone now, start again tomorrow as business as usual

      Yeah i guess you´re right. I gave up today after loosing QQ to J10. These J10 will haunt my dreams.

      I decided to spent the weekend most away from poker and re-evaluate my game and read some more books on the game.

      Either my game is faulted or just bad variance either way i will make it back.
