In each case, I made the right reads. I've barely played in 3 days, because I wasn't handling it well, going on tilt, and stopping each time. But everytime I go play for even 30 mins, same result, minus 2 or 3 buyins. Normally I just work through it with calm, and playing my A game, but that's all out the window now, I'm human too, and I just can't tolerate it anymore.

its all part of the game man, sometimes Q Q shouldnt be a pre all in hand , lower ur levels and ull slowly recover ur losses to own it up in no time ..

don't like the way you played the 1st & 2nd hand imo

I really think you should try having a few sweat sessions or perhaps some coaching. From PTR, it looks like you're still losing which is a shame seeing as you're got heart for the game and are definitely very knowledgeable. It's hard to accept but you must be doing something wrong as you're streak has been going on too long to put down to variance. A few hours coaching will probably make you much more money than it costs in the long run.
If you're really that sick of cash games, you could just play tournys. You seem to play them a lot better and we all know winning is a lot more fun than losing.

I havent been on in a while but heres my input. Wookie Ive seen you play and seen you at your best and this is far from it. I personally don't like how you played your 1st and 2nd hands. When Villian 3bets pre like that you know you cant put him on anything worse than AK. Lets say you just call and ship it on the flop then theres very little chance he will call you.

The 2nd hand was also badly played, I knew you flopped 2 pair but its a scary board. No point in betting, or reraising his min raise. With his min raise I'd think he flopped a medium flush and just wants to trap but with an open ended straight draw and the 2nd nut flush draw that guy wasn't going anywhere.

Other than that just take it easy and take a break. No biggie, I realized PStars was full of donks and retards like the guy in Hand 3 so I left for FT.

Maybe you should start analyzing your leaks and work on your game. I don't like how you played those hands either but that doesn't matter because its not about single hands or pots anyways. What really matters is your game as a whole. Looking at your PTR grader you are way off from playing "optimum" at pretty much all limits.

Sure these stats don't cover your entire game, but they are a very good first step on the way to improvement. If you don't want to take that step then ye better quit or play donkaments only.
