Should I Try to Get Better at Poker or Quit?
First I just want to say this is kinda long and probably a stupid question, thats why I am asking it under "Beginners Questions" so please don't get all pissed if I wasted 30 seconds of your time if you read this.
Anyways, I am pretty new at Texas
Holdem and I am not sure weather I should keep playing to try to get better or just quit and save my money.
I know how the game is played but I just started playing at Bovada
and after winning some and losing some I eventually ended up with a loss of about $300 which was all from cash games..so I was about to give up but I had a few free-roll tournaments I could enter so I figured why not, if anything its practice. Most the tournaments I entered had about 350 players
After about 7 tournaments here are my results-
1st. Got knocked out almost instantly../No Idea
2nd. Got knocked out almost instantly../No Idea
3rd. Finished 51st/450ish
4th. Finished 16th/350ish
5th. Got knocked out almost instantly/350ish
6th. Finished 150th/350ish
7th. Finished 116th/330ish
I'm not asking if I did okay for starting out, I just want to know if there is hope for me lol. If there is a normal chance for me to get good by practicing more and maybe reading some books i'll definitely do it, but if I am on a road to losing a lot of cash then i'll just take my losses and quit now. I'm not going to deposit anymore until I feel confident that I can play decent and when I do I am heading over to the $1 buy in tournaments lol
Also I should mention I love playing poker when its with real money
, I can play on my 360 with fake money but only if I am with friends. I tired reading a couple of questions like mine and that seemed to come up a lot so I figured I'd mention it. The feeling you get going all in with another guy waiting for the turn or river cards to come up knowing its all real money is Amazing
