Cannot take any more. Played the PLO WCOOP tonight (900$) and basically got it all in twice both times as fav (although never more than 60%) and lose both.

Today i grinded 44$ double shoot outs on stars all day - with the plan to sell the tourney dollars I make at end of day and try a spin up to rescue the month at high stakes.Anyway 1st part went well and I made about 1400 tourney dollars that I sold at 98% for cash. I then took this and loaded up at 10 20 but then seen about the only person I have at high stakes on *s as a fish at 25 50 - hence just took the whole profits and loaded them in there. Did Ok for a while and build up my buy in - was thinking one double up and run from this point. Then once again I run golden when get it in when they are drawing to almost fresh air and another one in the buttocks for me.

Emotionally, I cannot cope with this any more hence thats the end game for now. I have people backing me for EPO hence I am not playing one hand of poker (except final WSOPE qualifyer on Sunday) before that as my mindset is shot to bits and my confidence is as low as it gets as I have even been waiting for the turn to get it in so only 1 chance left to shaft me and it hits every **** time. !!! Below is one of biggets pots I ever played.

Same shit is happening to me. although i don't play as high stakes as you it has been months that, as you say, every 2 outer seems to land for opponents. Yesterday i play a Hu's game, first hand i get AQ, flop is AQ10s , i check behind as too many draws, turn is Q. He bets , i raise, he goes allin, i snapcall to see the flopped Royal flush, good game ty. Hope for you and me it's just variance. Take a good holiday and enjoy Borneo !!!

That's very unlucky mate and I hope you bounce back ... the only thing is you know as well as me, that you're going to get bet at when holding less than 50bb at and taken on that level with immense regularity.

You usually exercise better brm than that - its like one of my fucking car crashes. Whoever and whatever the fish level, especially as you were not even playing h/u, then sitting short stacked at a table and admittedly not playing optimum prior but looking for a hit and run spot is generally going to end in tears.

Good luck

Agree Stackers.

By way of explanation - I am in a massive hole this month when I have had decent BRM and was just taking a shot at trying to get it back. I had grinded all this cash out of tourney $ hence was taking a shot at profits only to try and limit some of the damage in a quick manner.

Anyway off on travels for few months and not prepared to touch travel funds so unless I Fin Tab in EPO then my biggest ever losing month is booked !!!!
