The last 7 out of 9 PLO or PLO8 tournaments I have taken major beats online . All were in the money and against the someone who was top 5 in chips. 5 - 2 outers and 2 were 2 to 4 outs. Frustrating to say the least !! Time to take a break or keep grinding .

I think a break is the best possible option. At least a short break will save you money and allow you to regain strength.

If time and money allow, then you need to grind constantly.

Poker and luck go side by side every time). Be sure it's impossible to win every tournament, but you write and show great statistics, it's great. I think if you are not mentally tired and have the desire to play, luck is near, do not stop now) I choose a time to pause if I make mistakes or want to change classes now. (tired of the computer) So the best time to leave is when poker doesn't bring you any fun. Lost hands or tournaments have always been and will always be, I don't think this is a problem ;)

Brake of day or two will be good when you have some bad beats. In that time do something what make you happy and relaxed. That works for me really good.

Yeah it happened a lot. Obviously if you're not in your A-game maybe you should consider to move away from the table for a while, but reaching final tables isn't so bad at all.

I think you should just keep playing. If you reaching the money, then there is no issue. I seem to keep falling short of the money with my KK over big stack AA or something ridiculous like that.
It will go in your favor after a few bad runs.

Unfortunately, I've had a lot of bad beats myself lately. We can't do anything about it, we can't influence luck, we have to keep going or take a break.

A break is a good idea to clear your mind. A time without poker will allow you not to spend as much money and perhaps in the future help you make better decisions. Or to have more luck.:cool::cool:

If I played 2-3 tournaments and they didn't go,there's no point in playing any more...

I would recommend you take a short break, the results are not bad but you have frustration which can cause you to lose money so take a break until you regain the concentration you need to continue having good results

The night is darkest just before dawn. So do not be discouraged and give up.
