re: Poker & Cold Streak?
July was a cold month for me. I did not have a single winning session and lost about 60 dollars for the month. Not exactly as much as some people lose in their streaks, but well bad enough to know that a break was needed. The 2nd half of July I did not play any games for money and stuck to freerolls
(which I also had some rotten luck in as well). August however has been a different story. 4 final tables in two weeks(although none were for real big $$$) and a rejuvenated cash game has me up about 130-140 dollars in real money
and about 81 more bonus dollars at UB.
My advice for a cold snap, do not play games for money unless they are freerolls. Take some time to look over your game and see if you are truly unlucky, or been making some bad plays, and maybe take some time off. Just know things will get better at some point.
