OMG ok I've watched hundreds of poker videos, know all the pros and their strategies, use to watch my Dad and his friends play when I was little, read poker articles
and even these forums endlessly for months (which I find has plenty of conflicting opinions lol) etc. and do eally well with play money (got 12k with 1k starting in my account in a day and while playing 3 tables) + freeroll tournaments (got #13 of 700 was my best). I play on America's Cardroom
because I am American.
NOW I don't know why I keep losing in small stakes poker!
A few nights ago I did something really stupid and put $150 (what I gathered from pinching pennies for months) into the account for my first deposit. I went to a NL100 table which in hindsight was bad BR management. In my first 10 minutes I won $20 and was really excited, that was the most money I ever made in taht time frame. I kept playing....and playing and now days later hit 0. I was actually doing really well but lost 2 big hands, one where I was 92% favorite before the river. When I got to my last $5.50 I entered a weekly Sunday $3500 Guaranteed tournament and managed to get 40th/750 to make back some money and then went to a NL10 game (where I should have gone at the start...or a NL25) where I went up and down until busting with an all-in preflop move with AKs vs QJo... (he hit 2 pairs on flop).
So that's my story. Why do I do well in play money and tournaments (would have gotten hire than 40th in the last tourney but didn't nap that day from stress and it was already at hour 3 when I made a less than marginal move from tiredness) but can't even play low limit poker?? I'm so frustrated and disappointed it's unbearable.
And I know poker is a cutthroat game and this may be asking too much from anyone here... but can someone help train me on ACR? I have no way to pay you back except in thanks unfortunately unless I make something from your training and can then pay you back. I don't even have any money to put in my account tho until who knows when so the training would be for maybe in a few weeks when I can make a $50 depo.
