Thank you all so much for your comments and support. In answer to some of your replies...
Most of my all in hands occur in Sit and Goes. They normally occur at a one on one level and more often than not they occur after a flop when I have a considerable lead..especially against a super aggressive "all in" type player. For example...I have a sunstantial lead going into 1 on 1....he raises big under the gun with A8...I reraise with AK knowing that he is capable of raising so big with such a hand...he goes all in...I have odds...I call...he catches an 8 or a river straight. Same scenario....I limp with A5....flop comes A96...I slow play knowing if he has bottom pair he's gonna push...He does...and he pushes...I call...he has 62 and catches another 6 on the turn. These are the things that are happenning at an excrutiatingly alarming level.
Secondly, I do not have the money to play anything but the smaller levels. Last year and the year before I did extremely well playing 1/2 no limit on Party Poker
and Poker Stars
. Several times I started with 100 bucks and within a week I was withdrawing 1000. I did not use this money to build a bank roll...I used it to take my wife to France
and Rio. Sounds dumb, but I am in this to make a few dollars here and there. I have also done well at the Pacific Poker
5 handed NL sit and goes from 10 to 50 dollar buy ins (top 3 place). Twice last year I deposited 50 and withdrew over 600 in a two week span. It was a huge grind but well worth it.
Thirdly, the bad beats are occurring across the board in every room I try. Party, Pacific, Paradise, Poker Stars, Poker Room, Noble/Titan...you name the room, it's happenned. I am currently getting smacked at Pacific, which I have found in the past to be one of my favorite rooms.
Anyway, I'm gonna give it a go and play alot tighter here in the next few days and if this thing persists, I am going to go buy a few new playstation games and waste my time doing that for a while. The only reason I keep coming back is that something inside me says that a run this bad is due to be followed by a run that is as good if not better.
