Getting killed

I have started playing cash and I have a rather big problem. Everything appears to be going along swimmingly, I am winning a few little pots, racking up my Ipoints and then when I get the big hands I am losing my stack, it's really demoralising! It started off yesterday when I lost with QQ against a small paired flopped set, then I managed to get all my chips in with 777 on the flop against opponents AA (turn A!). I then got drunk and played some hands badly and deserved to lose my money...

So, I had nothing left of my deposit on Betmost and decided to play a few rush poker donkaments on Full Tilt this morning, but nothing materialised, my best finish 37th/245. Unpeturbed I decided to try the cash table on Full Tilt. It was all going well again, winning a few little pots until the following hand:

cash games will do that. mtts baby are the way to go. Single tables are the best for building a roll.

I hate poker ATM. Hands like that make me physically sick

Its unbelievable, I had another one later. I am on better than average stack and elect to call a raise against a stack similar to mine thinking if I hit I'm in a really good position in the tournament. flop 5 Q 6, check check. Turn 2, BINGO! The donk blasts his whole stack (WTF) which I obv insta call and he shows 33!!!!!!?????????????????????????????????????????????? WTF WTF

River 4 of course. Reward the donk.

I don't know what to do really, can't do much about people sucking out. Might just not play anymore. The stakes I'm playing are getting that low that the donks and suckouts are getting worse and the money isn't inspiring me at all. Might just give it a rest, do a bit of part time gardening or something.

Little tip: you should use for your blog instead of a normal converted hand. Easier to read and bigger impact :)
