I am done with ring games!
i just can't take it anymore. beat after beat after beat. i can't seem to do anything right at all.
ya have to understand that i don't get to play online or live nearly as much as i'd like. i feel, however, that i have a petty decent STT and MTT game and i wanted to work on my cash games. my sample size is not big at by any means, a bit over 10k hands, and i've come to the conclusion that i just, 1, really suck at this game or 2, just really unlucky.
i think it's time for me to go back to tournaments and forget about the rings. i'm 99% sure this is the last cash hand i will ever play.
i got short stacked about 10 hands before this one from the same guy. i had pocket jacks, i raised 4xbb in utg+1 after he limped in. every one folded but him who called. the flop came up rags, turn rag. i'm all in on the turn. river was another rag. he called me with nonsense and took it to the showdown when he hit his first pair on the turn and second on the river. something like 6 2 offsuit. uhg. i let it go then this happened.

i know it's not a lot of money, but that's not the point. it's the standard of play on this level that i just can't take anymore. i know that this is not the analysis section but if there is something that i did wrong with this hand, please feel free to let me know.
end rant. ahh, i feel a bit better now, thanks.
