You obviously are trying to clear a bonus. Those beats only happen when you have to stay ona site to clear one, or obviously you would change sites. Everything will go back to normal when...

a) You clear the bonus
or
b) You go busto and have to re-deposit

Well that's it. You convinced me. Never playing poker again if you can lose 3 hands in a row. Shows over.

There is such a thing as luck... im on a really harsh breakeven streak rightnow over the past week... and its pissing me off.

The beats you described were not even bad. Now if someone was going runner runner quads against your flush... I might care.

OP should come to Full Tilt cash games, they're much less rigged.
