Kinda beside myself right now. Looking to see how many have gone through huge downswings in short periods of time. I play at the 2/5 NL level. I'm a solid winning player who does this full time professionally. I took a few 5k downswings in the past and back then I wasn't even as solid as a player. I was having a killer year, I honestly can say I wasn't running like god or anything but was up over 21k in 230 hours. This last week I played about 60 hours and lost over 8k. I literally couldn't win a pot for 3 days. Memorable hands were:
shipping it on a guy who I knew had a combo draw that he missed on the turn, he hit the gutter ball on river. Flopping a set vs AK and board ran out trips so his A made a bigger boat. Doubling up short stacks that flopped sets. In my last hour of play alone I flopped trips against a guy's AA and he hit an A on river. Lost 900, didn't get stack because I check called river on an AK board hoping he had AK. Then 30 mins later I ship it pre on a kid with QQ and I have KK for 1300 and he calls it off and hits a Q. This variance is unreal. I'm used to taking bad beats and losing big pots and I take it on the chin well. But I'm starting to lose it here. Is it normal for a 10bb + winner like me to go through downswings of up to 10k in even short periods of time? Playing only 2/5?
