Thanks for the quick reply!
The hand itself I had to move, playing in a turbo mtt, stack was 100k, i was on bb which was 15k, and the guy who made the move was in early position went allin for 150k so had me covered, and he was a very loose player with a VP of about 40 i believe. I snap called no other callers, and obviously I have him dominated. He managed to hit a flush on the river, runner runner on the turn and river to hit it aswell just to rub it in!
The point of my post wasnt really to moan about one hand, because I know there are occassions that the best hand will lose! It's more the fact that I regularly, like 75% of the time get knocked out when making a good call or good bet whilst im ahead and then just proceed to get sucked out on!
I realise that cash games and STT's are the best way to go if I want to try and build a steady bankroll and that MTT's the variance is going to be massive so its kinda hard to build a steady bankroll just playing big mtt's.
I know I should "play within my bankroll", so move down in limits when my bankroll is on the slide for instance. Recently I deposited $220 into pokerstars
, played cash and STT's and managed to get up to $420, just not getting bad beats as such, no luck just playing normally!
Then the bad run comes, and its so often that it happens that it just makes it impossible to progress in limits and build a bigger bankroll! Now down to $150 from my original $220 (so not exactly a massive issue). It's not that im playing differently or gambling more or anything, it just seems that the tide turns and the whole world is against me! I know this is a normal feeling for most poker players, every player thinks they are on the worst run of luck ever etc. But it happens the same every single time I deposit money?
I know its difficult to diagnose from the information I have given you... but are there any dedicated mentors at all who can maybe evaluate my stats on PT3 or something, or maybe talk via Skype or something whilst playing on some tables? I dunno? It would be nice to know whether it is just a run of bad luck, whether I think im better than I actually am or whether there is a fundamental leak I am yet to be made aware of! I'm just looking to improve my game and I think in order to do that I need input from an outside party!
