Donkeys Drawing

I'm posting a hand history. You need to understand. I could not possibly make this shit up. This is hardly the worst of 'em, but it's the latest and a perfect illustration of everything that's happened to me for 6 weeks. I'm getting brutally fucked, at crucial points in tournaments, by people who have no idea what they are doing. I don't even have words to describe the thought process that allows a functioning human being, with even the slightest passing knowledge of poker, to think he was anywhere near ahead in this hand at any point. Until the suckout, of course.

PokerStars Game #2173075344: Tournament #10124534, Hold'em No Limit - Level IX (300/600) - 2005/07/24 - 00:32:34 (ET)

T37000. At Level 9. Top 20 in chips. And, oh, over a $50K prize pool for a mere $41 buy-in.

I can't believe it happened again. Like it has for nearly as far back as I can remember. I don't even know what it's like anymore to get deep in a tourney. Every time I get to the hand that should put me there, I get screwed. I just...

I dunno. I honestly have no desire to continue subjecting myself to this shit.

Stop whining, you Homo. You'll get back there again.

If you're ever in doubt, read the first line again.

Div said exactly what I was going to so...

He must've put you on AK.

They're geniuses...every last one of them.

Take a line from the Dr. Denis Leary book of Psychology.

Just Shut the Fuck Up, and you'll feel better already!!

Go out and buy yourself a designer crying towel or something :P I'd loan you one of mine but they're pretty soaked through because a five month losing streak hurts.

*pat ya on the back* Things will get better, I promise.
