Can't get past 100$ mark in cash games!Suggestions?
Hello CC members, can't believe I already wrote 300 posts on this site and it doesn't look like I'm gonna stop soon...Since I need some help .
Anyway here's the pitch:
Last friday, I decided it was time to get back to the online poker world (apart from freerolls
) since I had accumulated a good amount of knowledge in my stay here and thanks to some books. Not having a great amount of money, I only deposited 50$ on pokerstars
to play 0.10NL hold'em,at 9 players ring games of 20-50 BB (5$=10% of my BR).
Well, it started off good, and I said to myself "as soon as I hit the 100$ mark, I'm withdrawing my initial 50$ and trying to get past it again!". I found that I was way more tight than before and that it bore success! I made about 7 to 10 dollars per day! Problem is,Tuesday, when I got around 90$ and just needed a few more dollars to withdraw the original deposit while keeping good BRM, things started to go bad...I lost some good pots (bad beats or not doesnt matter), tried to shrug it off but I think I still tilted, ended up at 68$.
Anyway, I Worked my way back up to 88$ in the following days, and then same thing happened all day long today though I did not tilt and most of my losses had been bad beats this time around (Aces cracked twice, Queens once, and a flush to a higher flush...actually hurt so I memorized those only). Didn't lose as much either,but I'm back at 72$ and I'm a lil depressed cuz I can't help but think I might not hit 100$ soon if this keeps up, and I've been getting thoughts of keeping the 100$ once I do and moving up to the 0.25 tables even though that would be soon and not very good to my bankroll...
So I'm calling out to the constant cash winners on Cardschat...I need help!
I don't think I'm doing much wrong but I still happen to lose 4B.I in a row sometimes!It does happen the other way around sometimes but I feel it should more often since I studied so hard for it and clearly did improve my game... Anyway, my question is, how long did it take you to get past your milestones?How much should I be earning for a said amount of hands? How long did you stay at 0.10 tables when you first started out before moving on?Do I make a withdrawal if all goes well? And how can I keep myself away from the 0.25 tables when the urge to make up what you lost on the 0.10 tables is so big?(I succumbed once last time I deposited and promised myself I wouldn't do it again...I'm ashamed of having the same thoughts again).
I really need help from the people who actually made it through and moved up or can regularly win and cash-out thanks to online cash games (I don't want to feel it's impossible and that I can't beat the bad beats). Any of your Charts, advices, statistics, tips for this level,experiences with players, or help in any way would be greatly appreciated...I'm down and I think I'll never stop learning, but I really don't want to blow this Bankroll away so I really need some good advices and suggestions to get me back up!
Plus I need to be a winning player when I get to the 1K post no ?CC FTW!
