1st 20+ buying downswing, Dreading it? Wanna know what it feels like? Well follow me..

Imagine a giant c0ck flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck that thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant c0ck But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant c0ck rears back and stabs you in the eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant c0ck is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant c0ck slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant c0ck finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests uncomfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours.

That is what your 1st 20+ downswing feels like



Words not mine but I felt it captured the spirit.

Who has been through one?, how did you deal with it?, I never have.. guess I was due.

Lmao!!!

I just got off a 16BI downswing. Finally got to where I was before that... then BAM!!! 4BI downswing lol... I lost 4BI in all of 350 hands.

Kinda brutal... demotivating a little but I'll keep banging away at it because I want to reach higher levels.

Do you have any more gifs like this it is so hot

Sometimes poker is a ***** super bad, it's like everyone at the table can see your holecards, and they can predict the turn and river.

We talking BI of?? Cash games?? 6max?? 9mans turbo?? 180mans??
I've been through a 40-50BI in the 180s and it's not even close of the worst you gonna hear about.
But yeah I kinda love the ''image'' of the c0ck lol , when i got to like 45BI i was feeling like I was gangbanged without lub.

I give you my feelings of sympathy.

The level of the blinds, though they may be of no import to you. Is not what becomes traumatic.

NO, it is the sense that the universe is and has been subjecting you to powers beyond your control.

People thought all time have dealt with this, and sadly there is no simple way.

The numbers cannot be controlled.

Well yeah basically heard that cash games BI downswings are smaller than SnGs specially MTTSnG and more turbos , so 20BI in cash games would be comparabl at least 50-60BI in sng if not more so yeah i feel you , that's like being raped , but at least you can just turn it off, when i got like 12-14 SnG running and been running bad for 3-4h , you still have to play them, and worst thing ''you'' can do is spewing your chips cause you tilt.

LOLOL that GIF is ****ing great.

Haha but whoever wrote that analogy is ****ing gay, so much reference to c0ck.

But whatever, I'll post, not gonna miss a chance to bitсh about my downswings to anyone who'll listen.

Unfortunately my first 20 buyin downswing started when I tried to move up to 200NL. Lost 12 buyins there over 2 days, moved back down to 100NL, lost another 8. And suddenly I'm down $3k.

That hurt but I guess I am a ****** for not moving down and just TAKING 1 ****ING DAY OFF after the first $1000 was gone. Thought I was disciplined enough to avoid that sort of $hit but I guess not just yet.

Re: 1st 20+ buying downswing, Dreading it? Wanna know what it feels like? Well follow me..

^^ Just a few days ago lol. Took a shot last Thursday, by Saturday I'd wiped out almost all of my February profits.

Was a lot of money for me too. Really sucked coz I was planning to cash out to pay off my student overdraft of almost £3k by the end of February, but after this downswing it's gonna take another few weeks at least coz my bankroll can't take the hit anymore (well at least not without having to move down to pennystakes again which would be so painful).

Oh well, learning experience and all that I guess. Could be worse, I could be completely busto.

Re: 1st 20+ buying downswing, Dreading it? Wanna know what it feels like? Well follow me..

I had a 16 BI downswing recently too, then won it back last week, and moved up to nl50 and today lost 3 buy ins there, 2 to gutshots, 1 to flushdraw getting there with 20% equity...but it feels like 6 so fml.

Good news is youre gona run good too, and its gona make you stronger. Today is my worst losing day and yet I dont feel nearly as depressed as I would before the 16 bi downswing.

Also, im not gay so im not gona imagine any *****, but I dont judge either.
