The verbal beating is just tough love about Bank Roll Management. Listen to the words of wisdom and unfortunately experience. I used to do the same thing, have a couple of wins, go on a heater and all of a sudden I am looking at $500 in my account from the $50 I started with, woohoo !!
Then I decide that I don't need to be playing the small games anymore and try the $200NL table, keep the streak going but for a higher payout. Then it happens, river gives the guy a flush, I can't believe he chased it down, now I have got to get that money back, another buyin ($200).
Then my top two pair run into trips !! Variance I say, now I have $100 left, damn I just had $500 !! I know I'll buy in short but just play premium hands. AA on the next deal, woohoo, get it all in to lose to two pair on the river, poker is rigged.
Now, same scenario as above but you are playing $10NL instead, three buyins down but still with $470 in your BR.
