I only play one game at a time. So far I played 94 games at the $11's in December. I also played some $22/$33's but got crushed there and have had to remain at the $11's b/c my bank roll is shrinking... FAST! I am on my worst run ever, but I am not sure I am playing that terrible... I am posting a lot of hands and no one has said I am making terrible plays (some have been, but not a lot)

Sadly/Thankfully (depending on your viewpoint) over 94 games it means absolutely nothing.

However if it has this big an impact on you when it happens, it is possible that it means that you are playing out of a bankroll that is too small for you personally. It doesn't mean that it's mathematically too small, just that it might be too small to keep you from worrying when things go bad.

Find Irieguy's post about running bad and read it until you feel better. You've probably only just entered the realms of "a bad run" and it will return to normal soon. In fact the odds are that if you don't change your play, it will already have returned to normal, and the games are out there waiting to give you money [img]/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

You're going to get some flames for this one, but I don't remember any previous and you contribute a lot, so I'm not going to add to them.

Doesn't mean much over 95 games... could be running bad, could mean you are bad.

Last month I only got in about 200-250 games, and I had a huge amount of 4ths and a depressing 10% ROI... this month over 250 games I my distribution is a prettier (a lot of 5ths though) It'll all even out in the long run bro...

Check out your other post titled '$11 bubble w 77' for a hint as to one of the reasons.

You have to start being more careful prior to getting into wars with the other bigstacks.

Jeckyl,

I've had at least 1 set of over 500 with 20% 4ths. The next set I had over 20% 5ths trying to compensate.

Looking at stats never did anything for my game/mind/anything.
