Personally I don't need to set any goals for November, because there is no way it can get any worse than how October has been, easily the most horrible poker month I've ever had in my career . Funny that it happened now that I've reached exactly 1 year that I play holdem. It's either I'm getting worse or I never was any good. I vote for the latter .
I really am tempted to change my signature in " my opponents make money against me when they make mistakes
." Throughout the month I can't count how many times I put my money in good (many as a 90% favored) and lost my stack on the river to 2,3,4 and 5 outers. This is not meant to be an "online is rigged" post, but for sure the amount of times it happened is statistically improbable. It must mean that in the future I'll win more than I should in those situations and somehow, once the sample size gets bigger, it will even out (hopefully at least). So, being that this is due to negative variance only, I'm starting to reach the conclusion that my game is not good enough to overcome it. I'm serious on that. If I'm going to run this bad there is no way I'll win, or even break even.
Sorry for the rant, I'm just a little frustrated. I know bad beats are part of the game and they happen to everyone. With the tight and careful style that I play unfortunately I don't give out many of them, but most of all this month made me realize that I don't have what it takes to survive when you run as bad as I am. I envy the online pros because I know, and I'm sure, they have runs just as bad as mine but they manage to still win somehow.
Not all hopes are gone, there still are 10 days left for this month .
