Two key comments:
1) You've been here almost as long as I have. In that time period I (and tons of other players) have gone from micros to playing stakes as high as WSOP
events. You however haven't even learned which forum is the right place to post. This tells
me that you don't read what people tell you, or you don't remember it.
Also, you've repeatedly posted in the wrong areas or been making preflop/basic mistakes (limping UTG, w00t!). That lets me know that you're not listening to what other people are telling you. So perhaps we've been sparing the rod too much & spoiling the child.
So yeah, if you were making your 20th post instead of your 2600th, I might respond something like this.
But you're not, so you get the wrath. Man up, read up, learn something, then start posting again.
2) My comment about quitting poker was actually pretty serious (or at least keep to small stakes like these). Only about 1 out of 15 poker players are profitable. That means a lot of people are fish. Now if you're willing to learn (see point #1) I'll try to teach you something to put you into that group of the top 7% that actually makes money at this game. But if you've been here for four years and you're still playing $2 NLHE, maybe its time to just accept that you're not cut out to be in the 7% club.
There's nothing wrong with this. Play cards for small stakes for fun, play in the freerolls
, entertain yourself and maybe get a free ipod by cashing in your FPP's in the process. But just from looking at the body of your posts so far, playing less might be the best advice anyone could give you.
So if you want to turn over a new leaf and play well, fine. But that involves learning the basics and doing some reading on your own, which will pretty much answer a lot of the questions you're asking right now.
