What are you talking about? The guy has a fk'n 13% ROI and is mad at making money at only a 3.5% ROI pace last night.

He knows nothing about unlucky.

He plays the 22s as do I. I have lost over $500 in one night and have been at 0% ROI for close to 1000 games.

Other posters have had downswings of 10s of thousands of dollars.

Cry me a river. Ohh KK lost and I "only" had a 3.5 ROI.

To be honest, I'm suprised this thread is still alive.
Look, I have had worst days than this..and this is my point. If I am getting this pissed over a day where I'm still making a profit, then its clear I can't handle this form of poker...at least not exclusively like I have been playing it lately.
Because of this, I think its clear that it isn't about the money won or lost...its about being in lvl 6, and finally picking up a hand and pushing, only to be called by someone with a terrible hand, and they suck out on me, leaving me in 3rd, or 4th. If this happens to knock me out of 1 in 4 tournies...then big deal, that's how things happen, favroite hands don't win everytime. But when it happens in 9 out of 10 tournies...I can't handle that.
I'm a whiner..admittedly...but at least I know it, and will adjust accordingly.

By the way, at NL50, I don't think I've had a night where my AA all in was called by Q4o, and my KK push was called by 85o or equivelants. These situations will always occur in SNG's given the structure..and I can't handle a night full of them.

I hate it when my AA gets called by Q4o. I was going to leave this thread alone, but this is just terrible terrible logic. Do you win every hand you play in NL50?

If you are a winner at SnG and a winner at 50 NL then I suggest switching back and forth when one gets on your nerves. However, while you are looking through your hands to prove luck is against you, look through your hands for mistakes you made and things you could have done better.

Good luck.

Obviously I don't care about them calling with it, I care about taking 9 bad beats out of 10 when I am the favorite. Of course I don't win every hand in NL50..but rather than losing all my money when I go 3 and 1 in all in situations in a tournament, I'm up 2 buyins when this happens at NL50.
