      Winning solidly for a week (roi 12.4%) and today the shit starts, can't win flips and if i get it in ahead there's always the board.

      AA vs K9o
      QQ vs 55, i sqz all in for 25bb and they both call. the other one had KTo
      99 vs QQ, limped pot, i hit a set KT9, money goes in. rivers a Q
      99 vs 78o
      AJ vs AT
      sb pushes Q7o into me, i call with A4s, i spike an ace he gets two queens
      QQ vs 78s on the bubble who calls a shove with 78 on the bubble??
      KJ vs QJ
      AA vs 88 rivers the set
      KK vs AQ QxA and an A on the turn
      Q9o vs 28s
      AQ vs AJ
      AQ vs A7 just now
      AJ vs KQ AJ on the flop, T on the river

      13BI down



      FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
      was on the bubble, 1 huge stack one small stack and two shorties (i'm one of them) I shove in KQ into the shortie, he calls J5 and cripples me :f_cry:

      13 BI is not that much really, i hit a 70BI downswing over 3 days (half of it probably because i tilted after losing the first half)

      When i first started SnGs about 3 weeks ago, i thought WOW this game is easy!

      Then i thought, OMG, i suck. I can't beat this game.

      Now i'm back to, ok its just variance, calm down and get it going again.

      I lose 13BI when I finish my first 16table set :P Usually anyway ... SnGs are swingy as hell and ur gonna see SHIIIIIIIIIIEEEETLOADS of suckouts if u decide to play more than a few thousand of them. If u don't think u can get used to that, stop playing them now and focus on other forms of poker.

      QQ vs 22 (early phase, i sqz shove and the fokking monkey calls
      AK vs A5
      AK vs KJ (early phase, guy sqz shoves KJs for about 30bb)
      AJ vs A9
      TT vs QTo (I shove utg for 10bb or so and the sb calls QTo???)
      KQ vs K5 (nice call)
      AT vs A9

      8 flips
      33 vs QJo (who calls that?)
      A7 vs KQ
      A8s 66
      AJ vs 33 (33 didn't have me covered, few hands after my 77 gets called by QTo)
      AT vs 77
      KQ vs 55
      A7 vs K9


      6 where i was behind
      AQ vs QQ
      22 vs KK
      A4 vs Ak

      At least i get to the late phase in almost every sng but it would be nice to get itm a bit more often. One fourth of my sng's I bubbled due to those hands :f_confused:

      I lost 16BI in 29 games yesterday, had 6 bad beats and only won 1 of my flips. Nothing you can do especially if you are playing turbos.
      The only thing that annoyed me was that I just crawled my way back in the profit after a minor downswing and then it threw me in the red again yesterday...
      Your biggest enemy is tilt not bad beats.

      All suckouts will be redeemed when you're finally ITM and HU, and the poor shortie pushes his KK into your AA, AND you flop quads just to add insult to injury. Nothing says sick like two monster hands in HU :D
      I'm just getting used to dealing with the swings atm too. At least you're up, my BR is down like 1BI and only because I keep unlocking bonuses. Otherwise I'd be 16BI down ;(

      at about 150 sng's 20bi downswing, first time i was whining. And then around 400 sng's 25bi downswing so decided to do some more complaining at PS.com. I guess overall my graph is ok. I'm just pretty bad at taking losses in a row when i'm a favourite to win. Being on the bubble only makes it worse. :O

      That's like 12-12.5% ROI right ?

      Lol, even if I have 100BI downswing, if I end up with 10%ROI I'm happy !
