Wow that is really scary.

Assuming 30 hands per hour(pretty generous), 8 hours per day, thats a 333 day downswing at live poker.

Re: 08 so far...

I have totally lost my game. I can't make laydowns. This is every single day that I sit down and play. Was too tilted and insta called river. Those of you enjoying your little 3 month heaters and braggin about it, good for @#TR%ing you. I wish for one day you could be me.

Re: 08 so far...

this makes me want to create a graph of mine, I know I ran about 200BI below equity (not just the allin equity though, allin equity maybe 100-120 BI below) since last September over a few hundred thousand hands at 1/2+, but those hands are broken into multiple Databases. It sucks to run so bad, just have to focus on the short term, trying to play 1 day at a time, forget about the bad lucks. Maybe switch a site to play for a bit, sometimes just the different graphs will make you feel better.

Agreed, I can't look at a poker table without remembering how unlucky some people get at this game.

I know this is ethically wrong and would lead to bad things in the future, but this guy really deserves someone to give him money, come on Durr/Raptor/some other nosebleed 2+2er, 4k, that's like 10BBs for you guys, have a heart!!!

And OP, you should post this link to Full Tilt support, pretty hard for them to deny the doomswitch rumours when you show them that graph.

Hey man,sorry to see and hear how bad your running.

This last 12 weeks I have had the worst downswing ever at $400nl and at times I have felt like the game is rigged.

You need to stop playing and just do something else for a long time,Id reccomend at least 6weeks off then start back at $25nl just to get back into the swings of things(hopefully not still losing bad)

btw,this hand for someone scared of always losing with a good hand(because thats when the money goes in right?)why not stop trying to be tricky like in the above hand and just crai on flops like this knowing that your getting the money in with the best possible % and try to take some of the variance out of the game.

Understand that you must be tilted beyound all nightmares,Im just trying to be nice and offer the best advice I could give to someone who appears to have the worst luck ever?

Hope you do decide to take a good time out and when/if you do decide to return you get the much deserved heater you have been waiting upon.
