Hands Played June - 133249
The shit finally hit the fan today but I still shipped 8 cents profit on the day because I am that good! (well really it is because they are that bad). The past week or maybe two weeks have been very nice. Not a heater but just a consistent streak of running a bit above average (not too many coolers and good hands holding against draws etc). I don't think I have ever seen a stretch this long before. I almost forgot what poker stress was.
My last session today where I lost all the day's profits through no real fault of my own made me think that there is just no point in trying to understand variance. I alluded to it in the article last week. Our brains just can't compute/process this stuff. I actually said to myself that if I just quit early I would save myself money. I was right. It was just downhill the whole time. And this has happened many times before. I can't explain it.
But this is not always the case. Sometimes a session starts bad and then turns around. But I prefer to ignore those and focus on the disasters like tonight as evidence of rigging. Just stop trying to understand. Because I can't and never will. Just grind.
