      -80BB in 200 hands.

      I put maybe -20BB absolute tops because of bad calldowns. Otherwise I played with SHC and proper strategies.

      I got decent cards trough the whole session... someone just either had better ones or managed to get them by the river.

      At least I don't tilt.

      AT LEAST I DON'T. Because I sure feel like tilting. X(

      Dont´t worry! An 80BB Downswing is quite normal. Every Pokerplayer knows this phenomenon. Its not easy to handle - I know! Just take a break, read some strategy articles (and maybe correct them :D ) or books, post hands in our sample hands forum and listen to our coachings.

      Good luck!

      I knew that this is normal... And I knew that my play wasn't really the main reason for this.

      Such a big drop in such a short amount of hands just was a real punch in the gut.

      I managed to climb 30BB back by playing another 200 hands after a little break, so that eased the pain a bit.

      variance is a bitch.

      just make sure your bankroll is big enough that it doesn't really "hurt" you. Much easier to play when you're not under any pressure of losing too much.
