Frustrating is an understatement my friend! Poker is like riding a roller coster for the very first time...your nervous, excited, anxious, hopeful, and happy when it is all said and done...cause in the end weather you loose, which nobody enjoys, you have gained wisdom and experience with EVERY hand you play you find a better way to play.
420 friendly, awesome, something else I agree on and enjoy. I had to stop because I am probation and trying to do the right thing and not end up in jail...can't play online poker in jail right! Not sure if that helps though, I might have to try that and see if it helps with my mood swings but hey if it keeps ya sane, tok tok tok ===
Your success is high you have a 75% cash out in your SNG's ( i think that's what you said ) but either way man keep that shit up, don't beat yourself up and there is no such thing as a poker curse, that's just superstitious. Find your game plan and stick to that till you feel like you need to change strategy. You could try taking the number of tables you are playing down some, I can't focus on more than just a couple tables but maybe that's just me and maybe I'm ADD or something but I normally just stick to 2 tables or tournaments at a time and if I get knocked out of one or want to leave a table I still got one table, or tournament going to play on. Keeping your table count down might allow you to relax some and enjoy the game more, cause your going to have to wait out that hated phase of not getting good hands every so often, it happens a lot to me, but I have won tournaments and placed in money not by winning more hands more often but just by winning big hands and big pots when they count. Just try that, play one big tournament with a big payout maybe not such a big buy in, you might have to go through a lot of people and a lot of trials to win that but when you do, it is worth that big pay out.
Other than that I really don't have any good advice, but I would like to commend you on your success and your persistence to grind it out... patience is key my friend cause good things DO come to those who wait.
