What DeathDonkey has said is exactly what I would have said. Stay away from this \"respected\" pro, he\'s bitter that he can\'t beat the games for a higher rate and cannot apply S&M theorys so he dismisses them all.
What type of bad run are you on? What bankroll do you have? What limit?
Hopefully, you can get back to this and answers DD questions above so we can point you in the right direction.
Hi, guys, I\'m back, rested and overly well-fed. Wow, trees!
Thanks for the replies. When you\'re in between no knowledge at all and expert, it\'s easy to get confused. There are some at the Wed Poker Discussion Group that are math whizzes, and some who have played for 20 years and fly by the seat of their pants. They don\'t agree on much. I tend to side with the math guys because while I don\'t understand what they\'re saying, they have the numbers on their side to back them up.
Joe, for the month of May, I\'m down $703, 10.7BB/hr at 4/8 limit. My bankroll has gone from right at 300BB to less than 100BB. I\'m on a -$466 streak right now. This is coming at the very worst time because my job out here has seasonal variance and this is going into the slow-time of the year, after convention season, so it\'s not going to be easy or quick to reload. Plus, this is the beginning of the WSOP and I\'m virtually on the brink of busto. It sucks.
For the most part, I\'ve been horribly card dead. I\'ve also been run down over and over while way ahead by players who are donating lots of money. You guys have been great at getting me past my weak/tight phase, but the gods busting my chops but good. Just when I needed an even break to get to the next level, I run bad. Variance times 2. It\'s very hard to post hands when you get no hands to play.
How is it you can see Q4o five times more often than AKo when the odds for getting both hands are the same? (Don\'t answer, I know, just how it appears when you are running badly.)
It\'s been trying, I\'ll tell ya that.
Thanks, guys. Not crying, just sighing.
