Default (NC) What\'s the most consecutive losing sessions you\'ve ever had?

How abnormal is it for me to lose 9 sessions in a row, and lose big each session? I WAS a 2.75bb/100 player over ~12k hands, but over the past 8k hands, 9 sessions over 7 days, I've been a BIG loser. Like, cripple my bankroll loser.

And no, there hasn't been any winning in these sessions at all. 9 straight sessions over 8k hands of -bb. Table selection any table with a flops seen % below 60.

How abnormal is this?

Neither of your samples have much value in determining you're true win rate. As to how many losing sessions I've had in a row, I have no idea.

When things suck, remember that I am on a 250BB/5k hands losing streak. I had a 14 losing sessions streak. Things have to get better since they cannot get much worse.

300BB losing streak here. When I review my sessions it looks like a 50/50 combination really stupid moves (my biggest loser is AJs - go figure) and plain bad luck in suckouts and lack of strong hands. However it's more along the lines of 2-3 losing sessions, followed by a winning or break-even session.

So you avoid mega-fishy tables?

I just recently had my first two day losing streak and felt pretty bad like I was the worst no limit hold them player ever. Oh well, there's always abnormalities in poker.

This depends heavily on how many hands your sessions are. Mine is 6, 1500 hand sessions (about 320BB down).
