Just curious if anyone is going or has gone through a period where every hand is a losing hand. I've learned to play consistently tight and to push the pot when I feel my odds are best, I am still learning to lay down when I have a gutshot or a solitary pair or even a low straight when being challenged and going against what experience has taught me. As of late it seems like I'll catch KK and get beat out by 2-7 off suited or I got AA's 3 times in a row and got beat by 3 of a kind (Q's), 2 pair (8's & K's), last was as straight... Simply infuriating.
Just a couple of weeks ago I would get into the top 20 if not the final tables about 50% of the time. Now I'm lucky if I can maintain the stack I was originally given. Just would like some insights from some of you out there.
Yes, there are times when nothing depends on you. You just lose all good hands and you can not do anything. From this can not escape, this is part of the game. You have to put up with it or not play poker at all.
