As you can probably guess from the lack of posts that things aren't going very well.

Sometimes p0ker can just be NOT fun. My downswing is down to 27 buyins now. I just can't gain any momentum..

This hand is just typical of what I'm running into.. even though this was a small hand..

Full Tilt p0ker $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -
The Official Hand History Converter

SB: $30.45
Hero (BB): $148.70
UTG: $100.00
MP: $69.80
CO: $129.50
BTN: $68.35

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is BB with Qs As
4 folds, SB calls $0.50, Hero raises to $3, SB calls $2

Flop: ($6.00) 5h Qc 2d (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $5, SB calls $5

Turn: ($16.00) 6d (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $22, SB raises to $22.45 all in, Hero calls $0.45

River: ($60.90) 6s (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $60.90
SB shows 3c 4s (a straight, Six high)
Hero shows Qs As (two pair, Queens and Sixes)
SB wins $57.90
(Rake: $3.00)

I think I should be comparing myself to some of the contestants on American Idol. You know, the ones that think they can sing; but when they get before the judges, the totally bomb. I must be one of those guys that thinks he can play p0ker; but really bombs when tries. I am not a winning player over the last 6 months (not counting rakeback and stuff).. I guess I could go down in stakes. I don't know. We'll see what happens.


Go Kurt Warner!!!!!!!!!

A lot of the time, poker sucks. Not much to do about it. Keep playing your hands as well as this one and you'll pull through.

Are you still playing a billion tables at a time? Why not drop down to 4-tabling for a while to get the variance under control? A 27 buy-in downswing is pretty big and you could probably use a little stability until your luck turns around.

But hey, who am I, right? Playing online poker for three years and still grinding it out at the micro-stakes when I'm not shunning poker for video games.

Good luck on turning this thing around. Enjoy the hot streak when it finally hits!
