    Card dead

    lately in the PO freerolls i've been so card dead. just yesterday when looking back at the hand history I had a stretch of 20 hands where my highest card was an 8. It's been getting really frustrating because I can't call these 7x BB raises with the rags I've been getting and all I do is slowly dwindle to the point that the first decent hand I get I have to push because of chip stack and size of the blinds. I just don't know what to do cause obviously there's no way I can change the hands I get and the way people raise the pot, I have to be pot commited just to see a turn.... ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH

    don't feel bad, variance and downswings are a part of poker, we all have had our share. It is how we handle and deal with them that is the test. some just say fack it and blow their roll, some take a break and no poker, some just play small buy ins.

    Even Pros go through this. good luck benz

    yeah I know its part of poker just been getting frustrated by it lately, cause those 20 hands last night are just an example, its been happening a lot. I know I'm making the right call though by not trying to play the rags I get because I see the flops, and I see what people have when there's a showdown, so its not like i'm folding and thinking crap I could have won that easily... I dunno i guess i'm hoping by putting it out there maybe I can help change my luck lol

    i think they were referring to the fact they had the same hand and barring a flush he should have pot split(win)

    Yeah I don't seem to do very well card wise in the PO freerolls. Then I end up going in with a sub-par hand and losing.
