I do apologize for calling you an ass hole, and I hope you are wrong about me not being here for long, because I love this community and very much want to someday make a substantial contribution to it. Until I have the knowledge to do so, however, I suppose I need to get back to the drawing board, study some more, and figure out why I can't win for the life of me, online.
OK apologize accepted, maybe I was too harsh and you got worked up about that - if so I apologize, too.
Now I'll try and be more constructive and tell you exactly what I mean.
Stu, Leo and others mentioned BR management - there are several very good threads in the strategy section for you to read. Read More
3500 $ is a huge amount of money imo.
Maybe you should force yourself not to spend more than 100$ a month.
- It's ok to spend 100$ on your hobby , it could be going to the movies, playing poker or whatever, just set a limit and fix it.
As mentioned before online poker has a higher skilled player ratio than live poker simply because the cards are dealt faster and the better players often multitable thus
learning much faster and seeing many many more hands you could ever be seeing in a live game.
Forget your losses.
Sounds hard but you wont probably win them back as fast as you lost them.
Set smaller goals. Maybe build up a decent BR (like 200$ starting from 50$).
Boredoom: You should "never" play bored - do something else instead.
Boredoom leads you to making weird/fancy plays to lighten up which will ultimately run you into disaster.
Bad beats happen to all of us all the time, proper BR-management will let you survive the variance.
All together it might even be more than 27 steps you need to learn.
I'm trying to improve every day, it comes in small steps and often you don't even recognize it, then one day you find out you're suddenly playing a lot better.
To my last statement - yes I do think you have / or had a gambling problem, as I said before limit your expenses
- and maybe think about a daily scedule since 10-14h is somewhat a lot (can you really concentrate hard that long ?).
Basically this is more lengthy and hopefully more constructive.
Just on a side-note:
If you insult members here you will be gone in a flash, I have seen it before.
