Why I have -5.6bb/100 instead of +20bb/100?

Maybe you are defending your blinds too wide, and playing too loose UTG.

Your EV is positive, you've just been unlucky. 1k hands is not that representational, keep on playing and results will follow. Overall can say that your CO and BU game need a lot of improvement, as those are the most profitable positions and you have the lowest WR for them, it's close to breakeven. GL

Its completely normal, that our all-in adjusted EV is higher or lower than the actual EV. This is a reflexion of, how lucky or unlucky we got with board runouts, when we were all in before the river. 1.000 hands is an extremely small sample, and therefore the gap between the two numbers can be wide. If you play a million hands, the gap will usually be so small, it does not matter.

No, I can't call this nonsense normal. I getting robbed on every single tournament I play. I lose 99% of coin flips, literally none of my pairs stand. More than half of my TP+ hands are huge coolers or bad beats. I can't even do an elementary steal, because BB either siting with 99+ AK or get braindead nuts from a floop. If I play against idiot, pushing with emply draw, it's ALWAYS closes, 100%.
I tilted beyond recover with all this garbage. Everything is wrong, and I can do nothing to prevent this.

And another bad beat, cooler, whatever... My opponent always has or will catch their nuts and rob me of prise money. Neverending nightmare with no bright moments.

I dont have time to go through all those hands, you shared, but even just the last one is pretty bad. Why are you raising a flush on the river, when the board is dubble paired? What this looks like to me is a thought process something like this:

"F u c k this stupid game!!! I know, he has an 8 or T and drew out on me. But I am not going to fold my flush, so I just ship it in, and I dont even care, that I lose!!!"

Classic tilted play, and I recommend you to take a good long break, until you got this tilt out of your system. As some like to say: "when the fun stops, stop" :)

Just checked your sharkscope profile for the pokerstars account, and since your last tournaments were played yesterday, you have apparently not taken a break, even though you were massively on tilt. This is kind of a dangerous approach, but at least you cashed in the last two tournaments, which can perhaps help calm your feelings down a bit.

More importantly though you have still only played 326 tournaments on PokerStars, which is a very small sample. You make it sound like, you have been running bad "forever", but thats not the case, since in the larger scheme of things you have just started playing. For comparison my count on PokerStars currently stand at 6.654 or around 20 times as many tournaments, as you have played. So you need to change your perspective on, what a large sample is, and be a lot more patient. Nobody can promise you fast results in this game, especially since it takes time and practice to learn and improve.

Yea, just observing how far this same shameless scheme repeat itself every match I play.

Oh, you're reaching bubble or ITM? Here goes your massive backdoor bad beat to a one card, always braindead enough that autocaller won't fold, no matter what you would do
https://www.cardschat.com/replayer/624WmdwwM
Isn't it supposed to happend 1/10000, ok 1/1000 hands at most instead of 1/100 (almost every match) and not always in my disfavor? No, please hero-fold as 96% flop favorite.

Then a no-brainer elite hand on BB always awaits for you to push, despite you have a blocker (+ bonus taunt with a draw that a l m o s t but never close)

Ah yes, that classic hustler's bite. Let you win one time by abnormal level-up of luck, so you'll not quit. Can't win coin toss for ten matches straight and then suddenly win each of them in one single match. Totally believable, this must be how variance balance itself.
You can often notice a player at the table, always single, playing under that effect.

P/S. I share hands just to show that the facts match my words.

Some sites have an algorithm built into the software. You are not just playing against the villain, but against the software trickery. When you are at a table where somebody, no matter what, wins, they have been selected by software to win. I feel sorry when people invest their money in such a scheme. It is very, very obvious. I call it PEA, player elimination algorithm. I can say that if one thinks he can win and build a large bank, you are fooling yourself. Next time when you lose at the table, observe if three people say had AA,KK,QQ. Ask yourself, is that mathematically possible. Not when I have experienced this a number of times in various ways, various hands. Don't lose your money to such schemes. And do not judge your play outcomes with what happens online. Nowhere near the live table play. No comparison. This is a shame, it does not have to be that way. It is.

1000 hands is very small sample size. I can play 1k hands in one evening. Also try cash poker because it has less random, in tournaments with lots of players even if you play well you also gotta run good.

It does not matter, that you were a 96% favourite on the flop, when its obvious, that the board has run out in a way, that completely killed your hand. Then you need to accept, what happened, and adjust accordingly. In this case check-fold or possibly check-call, if you think, the opponent is very bluffy. Instead you bet-call, which is absolutely terrible and a sign of entitlement tilt.

If you seriously believe, that PokerStars - the industry leader for two decades - is rigged, then why on earth are you still playing there? I once again advice you to take a long break from poker and perhaps even give it up and find a different hobby. Its very obvious from your posts, that you have an unhealthy mindset, and that alone will prevent you from having success in the game.

I disagree. You can and should really look at some of the hands to see what you can do differently. In this hand you started with neary 70BB deep and call int he bling for a 5 way flop. Nothing wrong here and you flop top top. UGN cbets 1/3 pot UNG+1 call and button raises it up. What are you thinking here with top pair? Your losing to 2 pair and sets. UNG could have a over pair there are flush and straight draws with possible combo of both. Why would you jam 60+ BB here. You will get gut shots and smaller pairs out but will you get worse to fold? If you just call here you get to see the turn pairs the board. One of the callers here could have the 4. If the betting gets crazy you can fold with over 50BB stack. Lets say its a bet and call of about 15BB you would still have 35BB left when the river hits completing the flush and straight draws. If you just had called you could have gotten away much cheaper than jamming 2x+ the pot. I know your upset loosing here but did you realize you were not favored to win the hand on the flop? JT of clubs was a 56.3% to your 33.1%.

A cooler yes but you could have not gone broke. He called your flop be with what? He could have a set, 2pair 8T a draw or just a Ten or 8 and a possible 2. You turn the flush but it pairs the board. Any set is now a boat and your drawing dead. The flush is obvious He could have a ten or 8 as well. The river hits the 8 and he bets and you jam? Why? what are you really beating here? you could have called and still have chips. Someday its not about winning chips but conserving them when you hand is not that strong.

I know, he has an 8 or T and drew out on me. But I am not going to fold my flush, so I just ship it in, and I dont even care, that I lose!!!"
" :)

I agree with this statement. You had the flush and not knowing when to fold them is a big leak

As luvepoker say, poker is not only about winning or losing an individual hand. Its also about winning the maximum, when we have the best hand and just as importantly losing the minimum, when we have the worst hand. And other than the hands already mentioned, this is another example, where you kind of overplayed your hand and lost the maximum:

CardsChat Poker Hands Converter

I understand, that its difficult to fold on the river, when you already have half your stack in the middle. But at the same time this line from the opponent is so obviously a flush, that good players do actually regularly fold a one pair hand here. Or you could have just called his lead on the flop, since you were 75BB deep, and typically stacking off TPTK for that many blinds in a single raised pot is fairly marginal.

To prove, that this is not just talk, here is a very similar hand, which I played around an hour ago on 888 Poker. It was the first hand of a 2,2$ R+A. And as you can see I actually folded and lost only around 17BB, whereas you lost a massive 75BB. Sure folding open a bluffing opportunity against me. But i am ok with that, beacuse I dont think, the vast majority of micro stakes players are bluffing in this situation very often. So I dont need to pay my full stack just to see, that - yeah - he has it - again. And this is, what make or break a winrate in the long run.

Nice gaslighting, bro. This phrase does make me look guilty in front of everyone.
If you seriously believe, that PokerStars - the industry leader for two decades - is rigged, then why on earth are you still playing there?
Umm, what make you think they shouldn't cheat a little? Because that's B A D, lol? Any money making industry never going to chose morality over $$$.
I think all rooms are rigged, they have no reason to not to be. PS in particular actually one of the goodest among them because his rng playable at least . My problem that they are getting too lazy with covering up their fraud.
Third day already I get the same robbery pattern

1000 hands is very small sample size. I can play 1k hands in one evening.
Do you know why you think this is small sample? Maybe it's too big.
Everybody just said that, without questioning reasoning behind that statement. Why 1k sample should be less valid then 10k in the term of variance?
