The streak continues. I increased my November losses by 20%. I played for 4 hours and really never won much of anything. Once I made a straight on the turn, had to bet it (there were 2 flush draws) and everyone folded. I usually bluff 1/hr, but I did 2 over 4 hours. Both times I fell into a trap.
In 4 hours, I was dealt app. 120 hands. You should get pocket pairs every 17. Ergo, I should have had around 7. I don't know the standard deviation on this, but it has to be statistically significant that I was dealt none.
I can't point to a single mistake due to not paying attention (refer to the perceived source of my bad November losses in earlier post). This was just the dark side of volatility, so I am much less bummed than I was a week ago.
I just keep telling myself that the poker gods are saving all the good cards for Sunday. See you then and watch out.
