      Ended up down 3 buyins, which is nothing compared to the other threads on here, but I thought I'd share these hands, some are just ridiculous.

      Im not too upset, this is just a bad day of an otherwise great week.

      this is not very bad as you said yourself! Not unusual to loose 4-5 buy-ins in a row. I think you made the right play every time. Even with the AA. Folding there would be to weak in my opinion.
