Days 18,19,20 - All downhill

By: Stangg187 @ 10:07 (EDT) / 305 / Comment ( 0 )

I haven't posted in the last few days because it would basically just be me whining about my downswing, it continues and it's hitting me hard.  I seem to get into some bad luck at the start of a session and it just puts me off kilter for the rest of it.  It culminated in a huge tilt run on my saturday evening session costing me 4 buyins of 25NL, up and down my stats went for the session, shoving flushes and a full house hitting on the river, shoving aces and AQs hitting their flush.  My EV for the session was actually around 50 higher than my net, the other 50 was some bad timing and tilt.

I have hit my target of gold but it's currently cost me more than half my bankroll.  I started playing today but I'm still tilting and being stupid so I cut off my losses early.  I'll play the storm this evening with an FPP ticket and see how I feel tomorrow.

I'm really hoping this is just a string of bad luck and not that I've suddenly become much worse at poker than I thought I was.  I plan on playing in SCOOP in may, for around 13 events, but if my bankroll has disappeared that's probably not a likely scenario.

Current Bankroll: $371.49

VPP: 2637.52

10NL Hands: 30153, bb/100: -4.60

25NL Hands: 12592, bb/100: -6.03
