      Well, since you already discredited any comments about learning in advance, then the only rational thing to do is to quit poker. Unless you have some masochistic tendencies... ?(

      Keep fighting. The best feeling you'll experience will be winning a pot being 80% or so favourite. After countless failures, this kind of win seems like a miracle (although you SHOULD be winning those 4 out of 5 times).

      Personally I gave up SnGs. Up to you. Maybe switch to children poker - Fixed Limit (haha, inducing a discussion and ironic replies here).

      Jackalof is right, start playing FL SH. People are really nice there and almost always lose when you are a favourite on the flop... :f_love:

      I can imagine it being all the more annoying in a sit n go, playing cash game last night I lost due to them hitting trips:

      10,10 vs 6,6 (flop comes 3,5,8 he bets, i put him all in, he calls, turns a 6)
      A,A vs Q,Q
      A,A vs 9,10
      Q,Q vs, J,J
      A,K vs J,J (Flop came K,6,J)

      You probably heard that "it is normal". And IT IS!:D
      I just had a rough 10K hand downswing, lost more than 15BI (BSS) about 1/4 of my BR.

      I was loosing with everything.
      AK on a Kxxx board, we get it in on the turn, he shows K3... river 3 (exact same thing happend with AQ vs A3).

      I hit a full on 774 with 44, turn x, river 4, we get it all-in, he shows 77...

      2 days later:
      I raise 99, SB calls. Flop 559, check/check. Turn A, he raises, I reraise, he shoves, I call.
      Villain shows 55...

      Just keep going and things will come!

      I will break the keyboard for writing this everywhere on
      play a minimum daily number of sng's every day and analyse your results only at the end of the month.It tends to reduce tilt.

      I like how much sarcasm most diamonds and platinum members have. Dudes you feed of it ?

      as long as i have money in the br
      i wont give up...

      i quit from live poker
      because the long run is not that visible
      i mean in online i can play alot more hands in less time..

      so i quit live poker

      and trying to go online ...

      hope it will work out...

      another thing i need to do is learn batter how to use pokertracker
      elephant doesnt work on sng.

      Oh, Jesus! Durrr has finally joined our community!

      Well isn't this contradicting yourself?

      First you say you are a kick ass player for sure and then you don't know what to do. I don't get it. I am not a kick ass player myself but when the cards don't run my way I sure as hell know what to do - I am stepping down a limit and I am grinding as hard as I can regardless of short term results and hope for the best.

      But whining like a little bitch on the forums never helped anybody, did it? You are basically saying: Oh, crap! There's variance in poker! I put my KK all-in and they lost! Vs QQ!! If there wasn't no variance I'd be ahead so much right now! Oh and only if my AK held on this bubble, damn donk calling me with QJs...

      It's like complaining about gravity: Oh, crap! I fell off a tree and hurt myself! If there wasn't no gravity I'd be OK now! Stupid gravity.

      So in my eyes you are just like a little whining child and you should follow ihufa's advice.

      Namely: just quit the game and save yourself some money and time. But wait! You're a kick ass player, aren't you? I forgot. So just keep grinding then.

      Good luck and have fun!
