Just won a $1 sit n go. I sucked out 3 times to do it. The worst being 99 vs AA to get me ahead. 9 on the river. I rule.

Holy F'n Snot

I run so fucking bad. So bad. It's like my icon on FT is flashing red to all the other players, as if to say call with 2 overs and only two more cards to come, you'll win against this guy. Your card will get there. The doom switch has been pulled and it is stuck on full ram. Fuck you Full Tilt. I will not reload. I will grind it out. I will use all my bajillion points and slum it in the free rolls.

I am not talking about races anymore. Screw that. I know now that 60/40 races are a foregone conclusion. 70/30....not a chance. 80/20....I should just fold. 90/ a fifty fifty proposition. I just played a hand really well. I got moved to the final table in a 18 man sit n go. I was 8 in chips and had less than 10 times the blind. I open push a couple of times in late position. I chip up a bit. I cool it on the pushing because the big stack is in the BB when I have the button. He is taking a long time to fold every time. I think he wants to play with me. Lo and behold I get KK in the cut off. I have slipped to less than 10 BB's. I pause for effect then push. Big stack instant calls me with KJos. I am 90% here. Flop TT3. I am 97% here. Turn Q. 80% here so I know I have lost River 9 Of fucking course.

I haven't hit a set in days.

Maybe I can get together with LJ and do a dance or exorcism or sacrifice or something.

As I write this just watched some guy with KK get cracked by KT 3T7TT board. I must be contagious. Like the Swine flu. Stay off my tables.

Oooooh! Oooooh! I just busted out. KQs vs TT. The drums of doom continue to beat.

Doom switch hath been flipped

I don't know what the hell is going on, but I cannot win races in live and virtual poker alike. I have read about this happening to people via various blogs, but I have never had the first hand experience of being violated repeatedly on the felt. I play mostly tournaments. If I have AJ vs 66 late in a sit n go, the 6's hold. Reverse it, and the Ace falls. AK vs AJ, three outer falls on river. Call a smallish raise with 44, set mining. Flop comes J55. Guy fires out continuation bet. I know he missed and I push for most of his stack. He thinks and finally calls. He has AQ and the board counterfeits my pair. On top of that I am getting way below my fair share of premium hands. I can go on and on. It is nothing new for most of you. It's a big problem for me.

Confidence. Mine is shot. I just know I am going to lose. It would make me feel a hell of a lot better if I had ever been on an equally good run. How do you power through this? Do you just stop playing for a while and hope the Gods direct their wrath elsewhere? Do you just play through it. Most of these losses are at that critical point in a tournament where if your hand holds, you cruise to the money. It's just breaking my balls.

OK. Whining is over.
