Limit players - how many bad beats per session
I"m new to here, but have been playing poker for over a year. I have played 60,000 hands at .5/1 and I hate to admit this, but I'm still a losing player. My PokerTracker db shows me at a winrate of negative 0.4 bb/100 . Now for my first 20,000 hands or so I was very weak tight and my stats were something like vpip 14 pfr 6 total aggression around 1....very pathetic. I actually was around break even with those stats, but I realized I needed to play more agressive. My stats are now 17/10/2 ish over my last 30,000 hands (full ring only). Everytime I read an ideal stats thread, my stats pretty much look bang on including attempt to steal blinds/defend blinds, blah blah blah.
Anyways, having said all that, I am still finding that 6 out of 10 sessions are losing sessions and that I'm still not winning money. I always review my sessions after playing and generally my play is OK, except that I will have hands like this (I"m not going to bother posting the actual hand as I don't want to go thru the hassle).
I raise AQ - flop comes J 10 K against 2 others with the flop and turn both capped with me being the aggressor....river comes 10....**** me...you bet, small blind had J 10...he leads out and I just call since I know I'm beat. $20 pot goes to small blind with 4 outter
I have AA and it's 4 players to the flop with a couple cold calling 3 bets preflop. Flop comes out 5/6/9....get a couple calls on the flop. Turn is a 2, I lead out, get raised and I call down as I know for sure the raiser has 22. Sure enough he did and he hit his 2 outter on the turn. Bye Bye $15 pot
I normally play 300 - 400 hand sessions and I ALWAYS get at least 2 to 5 hands like this per session and I'll end the session down 5 or 6 big blinds. If those 2 bad beats didn't happen, I would have booked a nice 30 BB session...heck if even one doesn't come I'd still be up for the session.
I guess I just want to know how often these bad beats happen to other limit players? Is it common to lose to 2 outters three or four times per every 300 hands? Any insight would really help me out.
I've been a bonuswhore during the entire time, so although I've lost a couple hundred bucks in poker, I've made about $6000 in bonuses, but it is really frustrating to experience these losing sessions that arise because of 1 or 2 hands in a huge session. Any insight would really help me out.
Basically I think I"m done with limit as all the $ seems to be made in NL now.
