Re: Need to Vent
Well, you just have to continue to play a solid game of poker and learn where you need to make your move in tournaments, not just to get in-the-money, but to win the whole thing. It isn't gonna happen if you wait forever and you can't push it all-in when you have next-to-no chips left in your stack, then you're gonna get callers since it won't put a dent in their stack. Changing gears is definitely something that I would recommend to get used to and this experience plus playing more poker in general would help too.
Also, it wouldn't hurt to post some hands in the analysis section to see what are the different plays that could've/should've been made, especially the ones that perplex or confuse you and have you asking: "Did I make the right play there?"
....I only wish that I could follow my above advice when I'm in the heat of the moment in a tournament! I was playing a couple of SnG's at PokerRoom and I essentially let myself get blinded out, because I was being patient, but too patient when cards weren't coming. I resorted to having to push when I only had about 2 passes of the button left and busted out.
Totally different way of building bankroll or at least starting bankroll, if you don't mind jumping to different sites and being registered at different sites, is to pick up initial deposit bonuses. I've been clearing a PokerRoom deposit bonus for Canadians and have been on the lookout if there's others that's intriguing. You just have to have enough time to clear the bonus dollars through playing, or else they expire and you can't claim them.
Hope that helps, in some way shape or form. Good luck on the tables!
