Who do I need to strangle to have a hand hold up?

Damn. Just as I’m about to finish the uber-rant here, my computer crashes. Thank you very much. So, here goes the second try. After yesterday’s horror-session, I thought that things would be a little more normal today. Haha! Think again, dummy. It was exactly the same today, exactly the same. I mean, there’s no doubt in my mind, that I’m on a very very cold streak here, but honestly, how do you do it donkeys? How do you do it? If there’s some magical donkey mojo juice, you better not tell me where to get it or I will be an unstoppable force. I mean imagine if my monsters held up and I sucked out all the time, I would be invincible. Stop! Reality Time!

In the beginning, I thought this whole “back to (one/full table) SnGs”-deal was a good one. But now, after only 14 SnGs I’m so tilted, annoyed and about to hit someone, that I’m not so confident that it was a good decision to switch. I mean, everyone can lose here and there and if you’re on a cold streak, well…you’re shit out of luck. This doesn’t make it any less nerve wrecking or annoying though. If poker was like this all the time, I would stop playing immeadiately. I mean, yeah, that’s the reason all the donks play, because even though they don’t know shit about it, they can win, even by playing like a blind monkey. I’m cool with that, as long as the “shit factor” is in the green to orange zone. With all the hands that went down the last 48h though, the shit meter hit blood red on me…

Two examples out of the last one I played, after that, there was no way I was playing another one…

Hand x (down to five handed, I’m second in chips, I put him on a bullshit move with a weak to medium ace, I’m playing to win so no way I laydown this hand here)….

Thank you very much…mr. donkey…lucked out on me again and instead of sitting pretty in the chiplead with four players, I’m sitting crippled in 5/5. Nice job there donkface. The very next hand I chip up to slightly over 1k. Nice. Next hand…I look down at AA…

Thank you thank you

Now, if I was the only one in the hand…I could find a grain of reasoning in his decision to play his hand (the donkey reasoning is clear “wow, I have two face cards and they’re s00000ted! Gold! When can I push in”), but the other player reraised after me…how can you call there? Are you kidding me? And yes, thanks again for the nice deal PokerStars, you brought the term “shit out of luck” to a whole new dimension over the last 48h…

So…that’s the straw that broke the camels back…I mean, this is hmm I think the 8th straight time that I went from “I’m going to take this thing down” to “Out the door within the next two to three hands”…and not only with significant better hands, but by absolute donkey donkey donkey play by my opponents…may the all rot in donkey hell…I’m out of here and don’t expect me to play any of these SnGs at any level over the few days maybe even weeks…I just can’t take this bs anymore…seriously…

Edit: Sharkscope says, Form: Super Tilt….Ingoal says, Form: Super, Luck: Unlucky as hell…
