re: Poker & How to avoid doing something you know you shouldn't
Im also new to this forum. I started playing poker when i was 21 today i am 24 and i am in my last year of university.
In the beginning of my poker career i have been playing very tight and i made quite a good profit(even though i weas to tight) in tournaments and sitngos. Thats means that i became third in a tourney with 3000 entrants 26 dollar buyin, the payout was about 3200 dollars and i also won 1 or 2 others where i cashed about 700 . As i didnt know much about poker i just spend all the money on a nice trip. not such a good decision i thought afterwards.......
After my vacations i deposited 50 dollars on ft again, as in the beginning and i started to play cash games (0.25 0.5 - 5 10). This didnt work out as i thought it as i got on tilt and lost about 1k.Then i started to read a lot about poker and see thousands of pokervideos and coaching sessions which made me for sure a better player. Afterwards i deposited 50 dollars on pokerstars
and i made it up to 4k in about 2 months playing low and medium stakes. Guess what, i lost all the 4k in like 48hours and i really got on tilt as you guys can imagine...
Then my gf had 30 dollars in her pks account and i made it up again to 2k in one week playing cashgames and being lucky in one smaller tourney again. I lost 1k again and i withdrawed my money which was left and made my gf a present as i really felt bad about it.
After all that i lost about 1k again, but i am planning to do a deposit of 50 or 100 on pks again and plan my bankroll much wiser.I would love to here any comments on my situation .
