Or am i just your average dreamer? its always the same scenario to. i dont get dealt crap for ages, then i get a hand like TT and im forced to go all the way with it because the blinds are raping me. Or the dreaded push all in with T 2 os when its folded around to you only to be called by the BB holding Kk. thats the worst feeling in the world. LOL
First off, I can appreciate your love of tournaments vs. ring games. It seems to me though that playing ten dollar MTT's is getting ahead of yourself a bit. Try dropping down to five dollar (or even less) sit n go's to sharpen your skills. It sounds like you are playing loose aggressive so the fewer the players the better off you'll be at surviving those marginal hands as the field becomes less than six players at a single table tourney. You have to expect to take some lumps, but also stay alive and over time you'll find your bankroll growing, though with some signigicant swings. So... first try single table nine players, then step to eighteen, twenty seven, etc etc larger sit n go's to sharpen your skills at lasting over the longer haul. If you win enough at the sit n go's, treat yourself to a larger big dollar MTT from time to time, but never more than five percent of your bankroll. Good luck!
