    bad losing streak after BIG WIN

    so i win a $1200 on my first tourny then jump right into another one and win a little over $950...that was 4 weeks ago...i can't last longer than the first hour in tournys since then...i get sucked out on they will catch runner runner or they will go all in with 7-3 and catch a 3 on the river when i'm holding AK in every hand that has a decent size pot or if i go all-in...this happens for 3-4 weeks every time after a big tourny win....i go on TILT SO EASY and i'm fucking up the other 2 games i'm playing...i'll play 3 tournys at a time....

    does this happen to any one else after a big win...do you go on a bad dry spell...this has been happening to me for the last 7 years....it's like i only get1 week a month where the cards will fall my way....

    just wondering how much money you had to deposit and lose before you actually won anything

    Its prolly a psychological affect when u might not be playing at your best. If u get sucked out on, then its prolly random bad luck. I used to have this after i withdrew money. That was the withdraw curse...

    I've had times like that..i always took a few days maybe longer break. Hope it gets better for you.

    sorry but this is just too small of sample size, the wins could be variance or this run bad may also be a downswing just keep doing what your doing and don't get tilted

    my first rule - after a big win - take a break.
    you lose more then you win so dont rush into anything

    damn that's a rough run i feel ur pain...gotta just roll with the punches and the best advice i can give is just walk away from the big buyinsw for a little bit...stick to micro/medium SNGs or micro cash tables and hopefully the variance comes back in ur favor

    Sounds like ur losing up a bit too much and playing too many 60/40 hands to hard/fast...Play less like a 3minute level super turbo short stack player and more like a 10 minute level deep stack player.

    Well, for me it's kind of opposite.
    I tried and tried to win a big win but never actually reaching it.

    those 2 wins you mention are solid wins, do you know that some peeps have never won that much in onlin tourneys..just take a small break or play mtts with smaller fields like 45 man sngs...good luck
