umm stop caring about $300......

seriously though, this is not that bad of a downswing, just take a break for a few days and use the time to review your play.

IDC about the money, i said be4, i haven't double up in 9 str8 days, my hands are not holding, constantly having 2 outer suckouts, and in some cases on the river. I'm losing too many pots with premium hands. For instance, yesterday 45off crack my Jacks (floped the nuts str8, although I didnt go broke), afterwards, 34 crack my Queens ( hit trips on the turn and fh on the river) suckouts like that.

That is why im concern!!!

Does anyone else click threads with titles like this hoping that someone is experiencing a worse downswing than you are, even though you know it's just going to be a 12-buyin microstakes downswing?

i bet half the money you are losing is bad beats and the other half is tilt play. take a couple days break and read the small stakes forum(well posts, pooh bah posts etc) then come back and play

any good advices? i really need couple of them?

get better at poker, you'll be less likely to go on a downswing

[/ QUOTE ]

This is the best advice. When you go on a bad downswing, use that as incentive to work on your game.

The other thing you can do is what you said already, tighten up and play stronger hands overall. That reduces variance. Stay out of marginal spots, playing out of position, etc.

Don't leave Bodog, though! I doubt you'll find a more profitable place to play.

I guess I wont leave Bodog, because i manage to start with $65 (the only thing left after I cash out) and take it to 800 in 2 weeks.!! i have to reevaluate my game and tighten up more!!!

worst thing u can do is tighten up, because that will leave u a weak tight fish.

Check the progression of Jupiter in your chart. Luck is cyclical, and if you figure out your cycles, you will learn when to sit out and when to move up. Most poker players believe personal luck is entirely random and have neglected this area of study. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
