      Joronamo,

      Didn't you just post a couple days ago saying that you're playing SSS?

      Hi,

      Yeah i gave it a go for a week but it was too swingy, ate away at my bankroll (the blinds, auto-rebuys) and i couldnt make a profit. The amount of times my QQ was against AA was ridicoulous. Im so annoyed. I did everything right, i followed BRM, grinded from 0$ to $660, made a blog, analysed pt3 for leaks but this downswing just doesnt want to end.

      3 choices imo

      1#Either u win the downswing and go on

      2#Either u withdraw what u got and find a new hobby

      3#Either u go broke

      Good luck

      The following helps me when I am in a downswing (sadly, they are part of poker, always):

      Don't think about the money you had before, but think about the money you have currently. This bank is your new starting point and all hands before are sealed in the past.



      Also:

      Post some hands! Working on your game will always be profitable.

      When I am in a downswing, i give myself a loss-stop constraint, also known as the stop-loss.

      I give myself 3 buy-ins to lose, than i quit for the day, its really helpful.
