Oh, this is too true. Although, it doesn't tilt me too much, it does get annoying. There's times when you're just card dead and can't play a hand. That's cool, just be patient and boom, next thing you know it, it's been a few hours and you're down to 15bb.
Also the times when you're making the right moves but someone is always just a tiny bit ahead. Like out kicked by one point at the river, or getting 3-bet by nits several times when you have a decent raising hand like AJ late position but can't commit to the 4-bet.
