  1. I am at my wits end!! Is this variance?????!!

    Heey fellahs, I am new here. Great place by the looks of things!! Now to the 'point': Well, I am at my wits end as you can see :) I have never been so hard 'at it'. I am at it, well, as hard as one can be I suppose...? I have been experiencing what is likely to be called one of the worst downswings one can hit... I guess. Honestly I just don't know what is happening ever since 4 months to be exact. In short: I CAN'T WIN ANYMORE. Not matter how far ahead, what I do, I CAN'T WIN ANYMORE. I have been playing on PS and iPoker for 3 years now. The downswing applies to both of these rooms. It 'goes' like this: PT learned me that I now have lost no less than 23 (major) flips out of the last 30 occurences. Before that, I had already been on the bad side way more often for A LONG long period. My hands dominating villain's (e.g. AQ vs. Ax) keep losing over and over and over and over often to 4 flushes or gutshots mostly. Weird enough. Add to that the fact I have been card dead for days and days. Add to that, even my higher pairs don't hold up the majority of the time. I'm almost contemplating just to not play them anymore. That's how sickening the whole situation is at the moment. I get into these situations often around the bubble (I'm merely a tourney player) over and over. But I just keep losing monster pots with them to 2 outers OVER AND OVER again now for the f*cking 10th tourney in a row I came to the conclusion. All of these hands if I would've won, (which should have been at least a couple of times!!!?? knowing Im actually a fav 4 to 1) would have giving me a 2 light years chiplead. But I lost. And I lost. And I lost. And I lost. Only yesterday I lost AA to QQ t a Q on the river to villain holding second spot with the same monster stack as I had. Furthermore, whatever my bet sizing, anyone is 'fishing' AND catching over and over and over their open enders, flushes, you name it. This now for 4 freaking f*cking months on end. Furthermore, no bluffs or steal attempts work out. Mostly coz villain catches some kind of weird non expected middle (2) pair by the river. It is driving me ABOLUTELY NUTS. Absolutely NUTS. Am I put on some kind os 'lose list'??? I have nevert experienced this in my 15 years of live play. To be honest, and go ahead to call me a whining baby, but as I am writing, a tear just fell on the broken keyboard. I am a very passionate player and until 4 months ago everything was fine. Now this, this, makes me just want to stop. Or believe that this 'doom switch' thing actually really does exist...?? Anyone having any tips or having experienced such a brutal downswing? And if so, what did you do? How did you manage? Did you keep your trust in your poker room? Did you play through it or called it the quits for a couple of weeks or even months...? Thanks in advance everyone!
