Has anyone have a day or days that you run card dead for more than 2 days without hitting a hand? No matter what you do, you just can't connect ? I'm feeling cursed and pissed and stupid.

One thing I would suggest is to look at it in terms of how many hands you have played, at least when you are talking with other people about it. My definition of "a day" of poker might be different from yours. By 2 days, are you talking about playing for an hour or two each day, or grinding for 14 hours a day, or somewhere in between. And the number of hands you can play in any period of time will vary greatly between live and online play. And if you are playing online, are you multi-tabling? Playing fast fold?
And beyond the number of hands in question, are we talking about going a long time without being dealt good starting hands, or are we talking about how the hands connect with the board?
I was listening to a pro talk the other day, and he had a documented streak of losing over 50 coin flipe in a row. That shouldn't happen, but it can happen. The thing that I struggle with, along with a lot of players, is that most of the time, the sample size we are discussing is just too small to be accurate.
I play from the time I wake up until dark. Maybe at least 20 games or more a day. From the first hand I get smashed and from there, it continues. I can fold 20 or more hands in a row! It doesn't happen often but when it does, I feel so stupid as if I don't know how to play. From there, tilt starts. I have to stop playing but I still want to play. I know and understand the game but I get frustrated. I play 1 table at a time so it shouldn't be so bad. I take breaks but I guess it's not long enough. I get the same hands over and over and all the rubbish. No playable hands, just crap 20+ hands in a row. Board never connects but when it does, I get beat. It cycles and starts all over again. Play that doesn't happen in a Live game. It's disgusting. The last time this happened was a very long time ago. In 3 days, I played 50 games and lost all of them. I seen 1 of my 2 hole cards 7 times in a row or more, just different color, the same card! Also, back to back same hands multiple times IN A ROW! And it doesn't matter where I play. It's like I'm cursed. This kind of play is frustrating, leading to tilt. That's where I'm at. I guess I should treat it like tilt. Thanks for the comment. I guess I needed to vent.
Venting can be good. Here's wishing you your fair share of run good in 2021.
Thanks! Hope the same for you too!
