Bitch Post – Running So Bad Right Now

I rarely ever complain, I always just power through, but I am in the midst of my biggest downswing in poker right now. Nothing is going right. I feel like I am playing excellent 75% of the time and making some average plays the rest of the time, but my bad luck is starting to add up. Thought I’d just write it down, as a bit of catharsis and also a bit of a leveller when I am running awesome some time. I’ll give you a few examples…

97% to win this one on the flop, I’ve got no idea why he called the flop.
