How is it possible that I go through entire tournaments without getting even one decent hand? I don't mean one in five tournaments I mean 99% of them, wtf is going on?

It's called a cold spell. Sometimes you have to accumulate chips without cards.

this happened to me in a tourney like 2 day's ago. i was litterally card dead.

large multi table tournament. 3k entrants 3XX places paid. i literally stole or bluffed every chip i made. i got knocked out about 100 before the money. but there are way's of getting around being card dead.

a good bit of floating and lots of blind stealing.

Making something out of Nothing is the biggest difference between Final Table or looking for the next game to play

Play long enough and you'll experience it. Mine came about a month ago. Went over 200 hands over a five-game streak where I got blinded out every game. It happens. When it does, you have to endure and just plug onward.
