i dont have a graph, but man have i been getting my face kicked in at 6 max lately. granted it is mostly playing only $2/$4 but man. I remember 6 months into my online poker experience i heard you guys talking about all the nasty swings, and being ingorant/arrogant i thought that would never happen to me, boy was i wrong. i wont go into detail about the bad beat after bad beat, anyone who has been in a streak like this alreay knows, but it is a sick sick feeling.

Welcome. We would send you a pin, but the treasury has been running a bit short lately.

A useful reply would include too much content for these parts. I suggest trying the strategy forums.

Final Pot: 14 BB

I put him on AA (or atleast AQ) first hand he raised pre flop in over an hour, and his agression factor was .2, thats why i was able to slow down. VP%IP near 90% but hand seen him raise once till this hand

Ya know, not to post real content, but on both of those hands you would have found out what he had much sooner if you had raised the flop, thus saving you those precious big bets.

Not to add real content, but I'm not looking for places to save bets on either hand
