$1439 - All Good Streaks Must End

Between Lunchtime Wednesday and Thursday night, I ran the roll up $700. I ended up giving about $500 back on Friday. During the run, I was not taking any bad beats, and my hands were holding up. All of a sudden this ended and the bad beats were back with authority. I did get a chance to play some 2/4 nl, and I am now lifetime up at that limit. My downfall was at 1/2 nl entirely. I played a little on Saturday, and flopped top set with 99 twice in a span of about 5 hands. It would not turn the streak back to positive. I took Sunday off. See the 99 hands below they are in the order I got them.

No real comments on these hands, other than it would have been nice to win them both. The roll swings are huge at 1/2 nl and up, and I need to get used it.

you're right. it's not uncommon to start off a table getting stacked by a 2 or 3 outer on the river. part of the game. it happens at all levels tho. so, you should be used to this if you play enuf cash games.

it's all relative. a buy-in is a buy-in.
