Yeah, I was going to say "you played," but I was beaten to the punch with Muhammad Ali-like speed.

I don't know if you've noticed this or not, but you're not very lucky sometimes, TWLLM.

LOL. Shad's knew the answer pretty quick - I played on Pokerstars - but I appreciate the effort. I got a good laugh out of that, which is important when things don't go well.

Hey TWLLM I'm curious what you've profited/lost over the course of the last year? Have you had any very long break-even stretches or anything? Any graphs you'd like to share? Thanks.

Both of those starting hands were speculative at best. When you hit two pairs, bet the shit out of it.

Problem is I haven't got good stats - particularly with Ongame where I havent' been able to get HHs working for Ptracker.

I'm probably break even-ish for this year, actually, just because things have been so bad. But, then again, if i include the WSOP seat, I'm up. But since i played it... can't really count it.

Oh well, it would be way worse if I was trying to play for a living or something. As is, at least I manage the money well enough that I don't have any *huge* downswings. I survived 25 set over set losses in a row before - just have to grin and bear it I guess.

25 set over sets is ridiculous. Are you sure of that? There must have been some set over straights or flushes HAHAHA. I really do need to get some perspective, I'm upset that I'm break-even for 2 months. Only difference is I work very part time.

Hopefully I'll get a lot of new students in September. Summers are always bad, apparently. This is only my second one since I started teaching.

well, if it makes you feel any better, the first 3 in the 25 were 1 outers where I had the higher set.

Wait... thats actually worse. LOL.

I really wish I could gather all the Ongame HHs, problem is i was using Java for all those at that time, and besides which, i cant get the DL hands to work in tracker anyway, lol.

However, I did post a lot of them on here, and I still have a lot of the PS HHs I think. I can't show you 25 and prove to you they were consecutive somehow, but I'm not making this up.

If you really want me to post a slew of set over set hands I will. Not sure if that will satisfy you, lol.
