      Hi All,

      Im currently playing at Fulltilt 0.05/0.10 NL.

      Have been playing quite well from my 50 starting capital I have moved my bankroll to 200... Ive played almost Every day and play around 100-200 hands and almost manage to make profit at least small one.. but since last thursday I am on REALLY REALLY BAD downswing... on thursday I've lost $25. Sat lost 20, Sunday lost 10, monday I had $5 profit and yesterday AND today lost 10 each...

      WHATS GOING ON!!! I am soooo fraustrated and thinking of quiting as well..

      I play very tight and agressive... every time I have hands like AA i get no caller for my 3xbb raise, NONE! and KK, QQ, AKs, either i get none caller or get rivered like J7o..

      Every time i hit my pokets and some one river me and crack my trips with flush. every time i had FLUSH some one river me with full house..

      what do i do??? have rest?? I dont think my game changed from stats I looked at it from past and now but I just don;t understnad whats going on... I only manage to win small pot and lossing BIG pot.

      arggg sooo fraustrated!!!!

      Ok I'l Try to help you on the hands next -
      but firstly you are leaving out alot of detail about each hand ...
      ie) stack siezes,Position at the table, reads -also stats if available if not thats ok. theses details are really important. Even without these stats its clear you have huge leaks in your game by the hands you have posted.

      I can try discuss each hand with you to try plug these leaks -if you want

      Hand 1. Ok this one looks prety standerd ( although it is totally villian dependent how you play the flop here.. this is where reads and stats are important
      . Lets start with asking why you bet the flop what type of hand did you want him to call you with & when he called did it narrow his range in any way - what hands did you want him to fold ...you must ask yourself these questions every time you act in any hand you play..(-what was your thought process in this hand
      i.e you raise preflop WHY bet flop WHY
      he called preflop WHAT hand will he do this with he called flop What hands will he call preflop and now call the flop with.

      Hi,

      Thanks for that,

      the reason why i raised on the flop was it was kind of cbet semi bluff. and see where he was

      I thought his hand was some where low A or AT
      I was in Mid pos he was on the button.

      Reading the articles would be a start. You raise to 4BB x1 every limper, your allowing fish to call and your loosing a lot of EV with SSS by allowing them to call even with good hands like Aces. Against one opponent no matter what hand they have aces wins over %80 of the time, but against 3 or more you only win %50 or less of the time. For example.

      Nah look at my 4 hands n losing $90 NL0.10/0.25, BAD BEAT HAPPEN TO ANYONE.

      *AA vs 89 ( he was on tilt and all in preplop),
      He raise to 2BB, i raise to 7BB, he straight all in!!!
      (pot about $50, luckly i didnt go on tilt after losing this hand, he got his str on river)

      *KK vs QQ (all in preflop, he got his set QQQ)

      *AA vs 33 (all in preflop, he got his set 333 on river)
      TWICE my AA losing to set 333 in 1 day.
      -i raised 4BB, Bstack raise 3x the pot, i ALL IN, he called, and i lose!

      The good news is, i got a lot of points from this hand, is it a good news?


      You see, even if u had a PREMIUM HAND AA/KK, u cant beat a GODLY LUCK player.

      donkeymaster,

      I know just the feeling. My honest opinion? Take two to three days a break off poker, i mean really.

      Try thinking about the fun of playing it, the joy that is dealing those cards. Try thinking if you played the hands badly. As more as it sucks nobody calling to AA or KK. It sucks even more getting called and then bad beated.

      Go take a walk on the park, have a lot of sex, trust me, three days from now you will be thanking me. The winnings will come back, i guarantee.

      Take care.
