This is what I have not figured out yet and no one has a good solution. Sure, someone will say only play good hands and value bet them but that just ignores the important part, YOUR ARE CARD DEAD AND HAVE ZERO FOLD EQUITY!
I think the only way to defeat Lady Luck is to stop playing. Try again the next day. Or at least try rebooting the poker client.
Yeah I know it sounds paranoid, but sitting there just getting junky hands all night and then finally getting KK only to be cracked by 85 isn't working anyway, so try something different.
If you're sitting in a lousy seat and you try to bust through, you will fail.
