      hello everybody, im playing at absolute poker coz i got 50 dollar bonus from yourpokercash.com there, and i started playing nl 10.. i came to about 130 dollars, and am not able to go up.. its unreal, today i played all day on 9 tables, and wasnt able to make anythink, in fact, im 12 dollar minus.. i think yesterday and today that i had like 30 bad beats or more.. going all in preflop with TT for example after somebody reraised my raise, and loosing to 3 or 6 outers is normal stuff for me now, i have even lost with AKo against AKo today.. too often is happening that i am loosing with much better hands than my apponends, and i am getting pretty pissed about it, i dont know how can i lose more often with good hands than win with them by playing sss, and what should i do?? anybody with good tips is welcome.. please replay

      I know where your coming from, AA calling a shove by 94 off and them flopping two pair, or flopping a straight and them shoving to score a back door running flush.. It sucks alot.
      I havnt won a race now for about 7 days.....

      Its human to remember the loses (pain) more than the wins (pleasure).

      You might wanna run your stats through elephant or poker tracker or similar to help regain your confidence on what hands are +EV for you and which arent.

      today i have set loss limit to 3 stacks, because yesterday i was minus 8 stacks, and i played by the rules of sss, nice game, but few times i got called preflop by bb, and i had raise from button with KQo, flop came J85, bb chacks, i make standard continuation bet, and get reraise all in on flop, and not only one time, few times on different tables, and than my AA gets crushed once more on river aggainst 89s, and my QQ run into KK and AA, and there goes 3 stacks.. dont know how to behaive right now, my selfconfidence is ZERO, and my luck iz -100.. does anybody have any tips??

      Just leave that site dude.

      UB/Absolute was the worst site for bad beats I've ever played. Every other site I played FL 6max at my won at showdown was 54-57% with 20k+ sample size. At UB it was stuck at 49% since the first ~1.5k hands I played - I left after 25k hands. I left with 1/2 the earned bonus and lost the other 1/2 running -ev so I should be happy being up 1/2 the bonus? Hells no! A never-ending bad run that starts 1.5k hands into playing there and ends as soon as I play any other site? No thanks.

      It's not normal in the long run, lets say a sample size of 100k hands but in the short run it's absolutely normal to be in these situations over a period of time

      pericas1991 just check your hand history and you ll see if you more often loose than win???
      I guess you wouldn't be + $80 if it was like that...
      hope your luck changes soon... just keep playing the way PS teaches you and all will be good next time this year if nothing ;-)

      1st dont go allin with TT after reraised
      2nd try to avoind going allin with AKo reraised
      3rd play less tables at the same time
