Just can’t take it anymore. Played over 1000 hands and I think I had a good hand twice. I’m not even vaguely enjoying myself. I’m sitting there throwing hand after hand after hand away, watching awful players take money from terrible players, and when I finally get a hand I get massacred. After losing $60 to clear my $40 Party bonus, I give up trying to beat the ring games and play a tournament. On the bubble and low on chips, I go all in and the guy flops a full house with 5-3. OK, fine. Totally tilting I play some pot-limit, flop 2 pair with A-9, have a guy raise me all-in with A-J, I call, and the board pairs kings to clean me out.
I literally haven’t had a winning day in a dozen sessions. I’m playing like crap, I’m getting crap cards, I’m playing with people who play like crap…why do I even bother? I know I’m not a good ring player, but I shouldn’t lose EVERY time I play. I’m not a great SNG player, but I should cash more often than 1 in 4. I’m so deep in a rut I can’t even see the sun anymore.
Time to cash out, move my money to Stars for the WPBT tourney and see if a change in venue and a hiatus helps me out. Sorry to rant like this, I try to avoid crying in my beer (hmm…think I’ll have a beer right now) but this is ludicrous. You’d think once in awhile I’d flop trips or hit a draw, but no. Literally, that hasn’t happened in 2 weeks. I’m cursed. There’s voodoo afoot.
So if you don’t see any posts here the next few days, this is why. I need a break. I need a priest. I think I’ll take the time I’ve wasted playing poker and do some writing instead. Or maybe just drink. I’m so tilted I should start walking on my hands.
