Default Bonus Paranoia?

This might just be me being bitter, but anyone else seem to have their cards go dead whenever they make a bonus eligible deposit?

Every time I do, I get the curse of the reverse odds - whenever I go in as a 2-1 favorite I win about 1/3 of the time, and a coin flip might as well be a dice roll.

Never again, I'll clear this one off and I'll earn my money from now on.

It's you.
I play better on a bonus, tighten up just enough.

My cards seem to go dead after a nice upswing that induces a cashout. Hmmm, maybe there's a cashout curse or something?

Always remember, online poker is rigged. It's the only explanation.

I only play at pokerstars when they have a bonus. And i always cashout(after the bonus) with less money then I deposited. I make between 1.5 and 3bb/100 at PP though(depending on stakes) so I know I am a winning player. But stars, never fails me. I deposit, go on a downswing, and cash out with 20 bucks less then I had. However I will continue to do their bonuses. I know variance is a pain in the ass. So from now on I am going to let them stack, so i can actually put in a good 10,000 hands and see what my winrate really is at stars.

The last sentence there was off. 10k hands is obviously not enough to see my winrate, but you get the gist.
