Maybe its not ALL me??

Went out in the 32k with KK into the AA UtG limper. I might be able to get away there. But the "I run bad" curse is firmly here:

First I get a great read that a guy floated me and I am going to take it on the turn. and the turn is an innocent 9. I bet and he crushes me as he hit the 9 and his turn call left me checking the river. So, I come into the final 4 as the shorty.

That looks like 90% of my hands recently. If it's of any comfort (typically it's not) you're not the only one runnin bad at the moment. I usually take a break for a while, re-read some strategy books, & come back refreshed. It'll turn.

Columbo, you know this, but if you only play tournaments (and I don' t know if you do or not), the variance is painfully poor. You can always play better, but you can't blame your lack of cashes solely on your play.

Play cash games once in a while. It can reduce the variance. I think this was one of the points in "Why you Lose At Poker."
