Thx for the replys!
I am fully aware that at these levels the progress is supposed to be slow.
I usually am really calm when it comes to beats, but sometimes I lose it (about 4-5 times a year). What happens then is unlike most pokerplayers: I cash out, no climbing in limits, no agressive donkin, none of that. So I guess this is good, but Im aware that I will not cash out and continue to built my roll instead from now on.
About the progress: What got me into ranting this thread was that I grind and grind to get up 20 bucks, and then some *#i+" happens and its gone to where I was like 4 days before. Thats whats tilting me, not the amount i made or lost. And that is what made me think.
I know Im constantly winning, but I think that the main leak in my game must be that Im not making as much out of my good hands as I should. But then again, as I see the BB/100 I realize that its the limits that keep progress slow. So I will slowly continue to only climb with a very solid BR, for 10NL this would be somewhere around 700/800$.
My graph is due to strict BR management. I totally believe this, and as ChuckT said, my stats are far from perfect, although (!) they changed since moving to 5NL. The sample is still small, but I attached a pic of my hands from October 09 on, which surely is only 5NL and the VPIP came way down
About Tourneys: I played some for fun this weekend, but Tourneys for me (!) is not where the money is made (wow what a sentence). Cash games are my thing as they are far more adjustable and less time consuming in terms of flexibility
About getting rich/going pro: I just do not have any gamble in me at all. I want to slowly make a consistent income, not get rich (oh yeah, thats a lie, i want to get filthy rich). Someone here compared me to a stock and that is where I come from, so to me poker is like daytrading stocks in terms of Risk/Reward Ratios, Odds
etc. Its biggest advantage is that it is far more adjustable with the lower limits. Plus I generally tend to possibilities making money from home as supplement income.
All that is part of my conservative plan. And youre right, I must have been joking, because my stats seem to be alright Sometimes I just loose it.
PS: I absolutely have great respect you Chuck and follow your Threads/Comments closely !
