The hand is not bad, it's what put you in that position: Yuo say you doubled up and then got knocked down to 4300 after an hour and a hlf. What that says to me is that you weren't folding enough and you were trying to push too many marginal situations and not being patient. I realise the structure may not be very good, as is often the case, but making to many plays or trying to limp too many hands is going to cost you in the long run. One well placed bluff or semi-bluff is much better than limp/calling to see a flop that you most likely won't hit.So...look at the big picture and ask yourself how it came to be that you went from 10000 to 4300 in under an hour.

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look west, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark, that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." —Raoul Duke, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
