Well it depends whether he actually wanted to post about the swing or the monetary loss.

On a serious note I really feel for you Gus, losing that amount of money in a short space of time can make you feel pretty crap when you actually think about it in terms of real money not "poker money". But you'll get used to it and I'm sure you've had/will have plenty of times where you will win that amount in 20mins so its not all bad!

It was 20K in a day, just to set the record straight. The last 20K was a little tilt, but mostly me paying off loans, rent, and running really poorly. I think that over a 2 month period, my AA held up 65% with similar stats across the board. I had two previous -10K days before that in my life.

I started out at 50/100 Limit, moved to 10/20 NL, moved back to 50/100 and then played 10/20 NL HU. $4500 of that was with 99 to 88 on a 987 board.

You eventually learn to not care. At this point I am almost impervious to tilt.
