But last night to get thrown on the rail nine times to suck-out’s on the river, is a bit much.
I can totally relate to that. I went through about a week recently when I couldn't win to save my life. If I wasn't card-dead, I was getting sucked out by 2-3 outters when I was all-in with the best of it. When that happens, I just log out and walk away from it. If you keep trying to grind it back, it just messes with your play (for me at least).

I'm on a little upswing, and I am doing my best to practice good br management (a longtime problem of mine). It seems to be helping--quite a bit actually.

Good luck to you quads. Hope things turn around for you soon.

Know exactly what you mean about bankroll managment DM. Appreciate the concern, yet consider myself pretty much on top of that.

It just was the way the night turned out, with my wife giving me a night for myself and everything. Was trying desperately to justify spending more time online in the future. Going to clubs and casinos getting to be a pain in the butt.

What I lost last night at PS's was allot of money I know, but was in the budget and part of a thought out plan. Should of pulled out earlier, but stuck to the plan. ( LOL ) Just hate losing any amount of money on anything at anytime. Guess I'm just really blowing off some steam.

Plus, was just starting to gain some head-way at Poker Star's. Just can't seem to pop the negative variance there. A little more then a year at PS's since Party Poker closed to U.S.. where I did very well after several years there. I know it's only a year at Poker Star's, but that should have nothing to do with my game. In fact I know my game has improved based on long time stats both involving live, and online play. Winning a few big tournaments at Party Poker is still keeping my online bankroll positive.

Many people say that as a result caused by the issues facing U.S. players, most of the top players are at Poker Star's, making it a tougher place to win. May very well be, but I found the negative variance of 70% in my defense, caused by bad luck for me, and great luck for my opponents.

In addition, to be fair when comparing PS's to PP, I'm not risking the same dollar amount being much less at Poker Star's. I did come in strong when I started at PS's, but pulled down rather quickly after first impression after a month. And presently still keeping it low.

I only read the first paragraph but I don't think you knew what Dorkus was talking about :) After the first $500 lost I would probably stop. But hey, thats just me :D

Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I'm sure you can see why I raised the BR management point.

Sorry DM and to everyone commenting on BR management. My mistake in OP was stating BR down to $110.00 I should of stated cash on hand at site down to $110.00, not BR.

It's a new day and woke up with all the steam cleared out of my head. Re-read this post and realized I was typing in a fit of anger yesterday. (tilt)

Didn't play one hand of poker last night. Gonna take advice from juiceeQ, and break for week. If home for the weekend will give another go of it.


P.S. Damn, you got to be on your toes when posting here.

I should have stepped in cause I knew what you meant having read a lot of your previous posts.

Anyway - fresh day, fresh week. You have won plenty of money playing online, this was just a bad night for you. Got to look at the big picture and you are way up overall.

After your break hopefully you will have a good run.
