I think i played well this afternoon but the pokergods were not smiling on me. At the end of a 3.5hour session (8pm) i had lost around £700. Prob dealt with it mentally better than recent times though (most of the loss was mid session) but didnt return in the late evening as i was bit too busy and knackered. Heres 2 of the worst pots i lost but there were plenty more :(
1) 1/2plo Q5ss77 in BB, sb is huge loser fish and all fold to him and he tops up.
Flop is A74 with 2 spades, he check raises my pot bet and i repot it. So a pot of $4 is now in the region of $78 after he had called my bet.
Turn is 6x and he instant leads pot, i move allin for $160 total and he calls.
River is a blank spade and he shows up with A6ss88.
2) This is same table and less than 5minutes after the hand 1) above
Reg (with a big win rate of between 5-10BB/100) utg raises to $5.50 i think it was , same fish above calls in sb and im in bb with QQ44 (1 suit but not relevant to how hand pans out) and decide to reraise it pot or near pot. Both call and pot is now around $60+
Flop is QJ7 rainbow , i bet 48$ reg flat calls and fish folds.
Turn is a blank rag (no flush draws now) and i move allin for approx $140. Reg takes time but eventually calls.
River is a 9x and ship to the reg ( 4outs) that had J,7,10,8.
Im sure if i keep playing like most of today it will turn as i definitely was more on the ball than normal generally. Just could do with a bit more luck to keep me keen.
