*** WARNING *** Standard 80/20 flop hand history beat. Move along, nothing to see here. It nicely sums up my life for the past 7 weeks which is why I'm posting it as a semi-update.

Standard 1/2 pot cbet in 3bet pot for induceaments since I expect this 40/30 to ship all flush draws, Jx, KQ, AK, AQ if I haven't "committed" yet.

Re-listening to Tommy's 8 fold path which is helping me get through this shit.


  1. Really crappy. I can sympathize with you.

  2. I have realised this stuff can just happen over and over and over. For the first time ever I thought the interwebs pokerz was fixxed lol. But the feeling while thinking "money in 80% fave, meh" of a sick stomach and hot hackles and stone face while the chips are shipped the other way is something that when overcome will lead to transcendent poker. brm ftw.
