um. i know that ev software can be an excuse for people to focus on their 'luck', but when its as bad as this, its not just some excuse, that's some hardcore runbad **** right there. i don't really know what else to say, i just don't really think your ev graphs brainwashing people theory (although can be true most of the time) is really relevant here.

Slugger, keep your head up. Take a decent break from poker and then think carefully about your options.
