It just was the way the night turned out, with my wife giving me a night for myself and everything. Was trying desperately to justify spending more time online in the future. Going to clubs and casinos
getting to be a pain in the butt.
What I lost last night at PS's was allot of money I know, but was in the budget and part of a thought out plan. Should of pulled out earlier, but stuck to the plan. ( LOL ) Just hate losing any amount of money on anything at anytime. Guess I'm just really blowing off some steam.
Plus, was just starting to gain some head-way at Poker Star's. Just can't seem to pop the negative variance there. A little more then a year at PS's since Party Poker
closed to U.S.. where I did very well after several years there. I know it's only a year at Poker Star's, but that should have nothing to do with my game. In fact I know my game has improved based on long time stats both involving live, and online play. Winning a few big tournaments at Party Poker is still keeping my online bankroll positive.
Many people say that as a result caused by the issues facing U.S. players, most of the top players are at Poker Star's, making it a tougher place to win. May very well be, but I found the negative variance of 70% in my defense, caused by bad luck for me, and great luck for my opponents.
In addition, to be fair when comparing PS's to PP, I'm not risking the same dollar amount being much less at Poker Star's. I did come in strong when I started at PS's, but pulled down rather quickly after first impression after a month. And presently still keeping it low.
