I lost my bankroll in 400$NL. However I was not rolled for it at all, I only had one and a half buy ins for it. I went into it after doing well on a 200$ table, and I went there after doing well at a $100 table, which I went to after doing well at a 50$ table. Notice a trend? I realize this was my fault for letting the money get to my head. But grinding micro just got so boring, and I couldn't help but think, if I'm doing so well here, imagine how I'd be able to do in higher limits. Thinking of giving up poker until I can get myself together to where the money is no longer a huge issue for me. Or I might keep grinding micro with the rest of my bankroll. But how do you tell when you're playing badly vs when you're just experiencing variance?
