If you keep having "bad luck" all the time there is probably something wrong with your game but I have to admit sometimes you just have one of these days where everything is not going the way you want it!
Welcome to CC Davey!! Don't forget to post an introduction in the Intro section. I like what you have to say above!
I agree, I believe there is such a thing as good luck & bad luck in life in general. Some days, it seems no matter what you do, it's the wrong thing or so many negative things happen all at once you wonder if there is a dark cloud over your head!
Some days (albeit for me they are few and far between) you can't do any wrong! Everything just seems to fall in place and it's like you are walking on water! I had such a day in January of this year. On my way to the casino I went through 11 traffic lights and hit every single one as a green light! I had turned from many different roads, taking back roads to other back roads to avoid most of the main drag and it was amazing that I hit every light as a green one! That night, I took down 1st place in the tourney & more than doubled up at the cash table. It was a sic run & it was Awesome!!!
Now as far as poker goes, I think too many people confuse bad luck (running bad) with bad play, bad decisions, etc; So it's difficult to say for sure if someone is having bad luck in poker or making bad decisions. From my experience playing with thousands of players live & online & seeing all the posts on CC, it's usually the player making bad decisions & NOT bad luck!
