Attempting to Build a Bankroll - Running Bad or just terrible play?

Post by albert1212 on Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:25 am



I would like to thank everyone in advance for reading my story (If you please) and for helping with my game.

http://australian-casinos.org/

I have been been playing online poker for about 3 years now, since I was 18. I figured I would do fairly well, as I have done well in home games and have always been good at games/strategy/math, etc. At the start I probably lost about 1k playing micro/low stakes over the course of about a year. I realized that I needed to take the game more seriously so I bought some books and began to work on my game. After playing for a few more months I finally found some success, winning the Midnight Madness event on FT. I cashed out about 70% of the 4k that I won and continued to play with the rest. I won fairly consistently for about another 2-3 weeks playing $24 Knock out 90 person sngs, winning approx 1k. After that I seemed to go on a downswing, losing my bankroll plus about another $500, a total downswing of about 2k.

It has been since that point that I have not been able to win a dime. I played full time for about 6 months and lost constantly(I was only playing sngs with a $100 roll mind you, trying to build enough to play cash). I wouldn't just degen all my money away, I would maybe go up about 200 or 300 with my 100 dollar buy in, but I would usually withdraw little profit, or just lose the rest to (assumed) variance.

Now I am working full time, trying to build a bankroll on the weekends. I play mostly heads up sngs, turbos and hypers, anything from $1.5-$15, depending on how much I have in my account (usually about 50 to start). I realize playing 15s on a 50 dollar roll is way underolling myself, but I can easily replenish my roll. I have been trying this for a few weeks now and seem to be running impossibly bad. I would like to post some HH from this weekend, but not sure if I should just post in text form or convert them somehow.

I would love any advice on my play, but am mostly looking to see if I am making negative EV plays all the time and just throwing away my money, or if im just experiencing a high rate of variance. It has been eating away at me, and I feel like im constantly playing scared.
Thanks everyone for any advice, please let me know how I should post my HH.

Also, if this is in the wrong forum, please forgive me and move it to the proper one.

ok first off post were you want we have staff to move posts around. second right away ill tell you if you run bad sit n goes ( esp turbos) and cash tables are not the place to be you will get drained fast . you want help yer in the right place . where do you play? i am setting up some sort of classes for the new yr for a select few if anyone wants in. i am far from a pro and farther from being one of the best but i am a regular dude thats won every tournament merge has under 20 bucks. i have also cashed the 109 sunday game 4 of the 5 times i have played. i also havent run good this yr so dont feel bad im down too this happens its what you do next thta makes you a player and that you ask for help and see the issue i think thats awsome

Since I have gamble fever I never thought to build a bankroll I waste my money playing for fun so win or lose it doesn't matter Shocked Maybe I should rethink my whole strategy scratch
