Ya man playing in the morning isn't fun at all. I usually try to play some tournaments at that time when only total NITs are online.

I've tried playing EST morning/afternoons the last few times I've had a vacation day and if it isn't also a holiday the tables are horrible.

Early evenings 5pm-8pm aren't much better but its usually the only time I have to play. Late night 11pm+ is almost as good as weekends, just wish I was able to play during those hours more often

I wish I could play 11pm+, the games are pretty good now and its only 8.30 FTT (full tilt time...) but I'm getting sleepy

I wish I could stop getting bad beat against people running 85/65. I mean its insane over the last 2 days I have lost over 250 dollars to these scrubs completely on bad beats. 2/3 outed 5 times I mean that really hurts and is very hard for me to overcome in the course of a session.

Don't tilt man! This happens to us all unfortunately. Even if you are a 90% favorite you still loose 10%. Sometimes the fish gets us a few times in a row, but you will cooler some guys in a row too when you are behind.
Take a break, drink some coffee and cool off for an hour and then get back to playing.

this made me take a break from ring for a couple days and filled the time with tourneys instead. worst. decision. ever. getting knocked out tilts me harder than having a quick -500bb session.

do any of you get a good volume of tourneys in? ROIs/ITM%/FT%? i think ive played >100 without a final table...hurts bad

coming back to 50nl on friday, i look forward to working for rakeback again while the rest of you regs exploit me...

Meh, I think I'm gonna step back to 25NL for a while... Last month or 2 are quite crappy. Started with a 12BI downswing when moving to FT, then worked it up again and now the last month and a half are about breakeven again.

Combination of just not being able to make anything happen, my sets getting cracked, none of my bluffs working, not many draws hitting... *sigh*. Just too swingy atm.

Had another -4BI session last night (I know, 4BI is nothing... but I just 6 table :P) which kinda did it for me. Cashed out a bit, left about 30BI for 25NL (but perhaps I'm gonna continue 50NL anyway, yay bankroll management) and want to get my act together at 25NL again...

There is nothing to see at 25NL, move along...

If your roll has taken a hit and you need to move down, then, of course, move down. But I have a lot of hands against you and I KNOW you have the game to beat $50. Hang in there.

Thanks mpethy, appreciate it!

But I don't know, I just get very tilted by those -$150 and -$200 sessions and can't seem to handle them properly atm so maybe it's better for me to take it easy for a little while. Not planning on moving back permanently but just to get my mind straight again and re-evaluate the way I'm playing...

Who knows though, perhaps I'll have a few very nice sessions and just get my mindset right again and all this will seem something from long ago

Lets hope they don't hit me for an entire month because it is already hurting my soul and it has been 2 days lol. Luckily it hasn't actually cost me that much money because I have been running over the other players rather well. Hopefully things swing around and I can get on a roll here.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Well maybe it will be an entire month...... listen to this BS. I would post the hand converter thing, but I have never done it and don't know how to yet. I have pocket 3s folds around to me on the cutoff I raise to 3x at 50NL. Get reraised very small to 2.50 flop comes Q103 2 hearts he checks I bet pot he calls J turns he checks another pot bet he calls river is an 8 making the board. Q103 J 8 he checks I bet 12, I shoulda checked but went thin with it, he reraised me to 26 i have to call now and he shows A9???? Unreal........ while I was typing this I lost with AA to K8 calling my reraise hitting a King and then getting a 4 card straight, Kings losing to JJ on another 4 card straight, and AJ vs QJ flop comes AK5 and they turn a straight on me. Is it just me or is this kinda string of hands really hard to take in stride?

HH's are so much easier to read

Click up top to the right "Click to Expand" (after you click post reply), paste in the HH and then make selections if you like to show results or not etc. Then just click submit reply.

at least I booked the happy meal this session and stop the hemorrhaging...Of course if I didn't make 4BI starting new deep tables and playing HU it would have been ugly

You have some of the sickest/wierdest variance. Didn't you have a strectch last year where you were losing with Quads or something like that?

This is disgusting. I recently had a session in which my AKs lost aipf to AKo twice in a row and I thought that was bad...
