The long run:

headgame62 1,081 -$4 $7 -47% -$3,996 Tilt

I didn't have much fun at the tables on Monday night.I managed to go 0/8 ( super tilt form according to sharkscope)and only one scraped second place finish meant it wasn't a total disaster.I won't bore you with the beats but they just came one after another and I felt as if my luck would never change.

I was determined to get back on the horse last night but seemed to run into the same wall of bad beats and better hands.I managed to run JJ into KK three times and into QQ once, before headgame62 ( huge donkey) beat my JJ yet again ,this time with his A2.

I was then looking good to win my next game when a shortstack got lucky about five times in a row and before I know it I'd crashed out horribly yet again.( scraped 4th at least to break my duck)

By this time I was extremely hacked off with my luck ,very tired and feeling like I would never win another hand.

My cousin popped over to pick up a ticket for tonights Rangers game and thankfully I managed to win my last game of the night.I actually got lucky after making a slightly tilty call.I'd raised with AQ soooted and a solid regular shoved.I'd just crashed out another game to a sick one and called off my stack with that AQc v the solid players QQ... and hit my flush.It felt like I was due that one but of course poker doesn't work that way.

Tonight I'm off to see Rangers play East Stirling in a league cup tie at Ibrox and will be heading over to look after Step A afterwards until the ex gets home from work around 12am.The ex does now have a net connection and I may get a wee game there, but a night off from the relentless nature of the turbs may be a better idea....

The trouble is that you only get your money back if you play that guy again (I know you didn't actually lose the hand, but you get what I mean).

Play on the same table as him over time and you're going to take him to the cleaners. As it is you'll never see him again, and he'll be replaced in the enxt game by another 'strike it lucky' merchant.

If eejits are going to call then three handed just about anything can win.

Frustrating to the nth degree.

And his stats are a perfect example of why I've changed tack. Obviously $15 is absolutely nothing to him. He loses, he fires up another game. I lose at that level and I would have to write a ten page report for the wife...

Hmm,If I had been in the hand I'd have cursed my own bad luck that the flop fell that way, rather than the donk for calling.I may not get the $$$ back from him but there's a zillion other donks just like him lining up to line our pockets!

My fear in poker is firing up the tables one day and finding them full of TAG/LAG sharks!

I don't even mind him winning that hand as he knocked out a couple of better players and it's hands like that which keep a $3k loser playing poker.

Frustrating when they hit ,seemingly over and over for sure,( hence my post)but in the good old long run,we shall prevail!
