positives - I haven't lost money OVERALL in online poker , but its basically even ,
negatives - I had $103 yesterday , if I played semi-smart , odds are id be able to play with that for awhile , I say semi smart because , $1.10 is too low for the excitement I need. PERIOD. I couldn't continuously play that low of stakes , I could meet in the middle near $2-5 mtts and sngs , but id have to have a good ROI , in order to stay interested at that level .........
I am not going to be a professional poker player , ever ,
I LOVE poker , and as long as it doesn't cost me too much money I will continue to play ,
if I have the time , a fun Friday night to me is playing $20 worth of sngs and mtts as opposed to going out , so I look at online poker that way sometimes , I am stuck in the middle of the road here with my style and goals whne it comes to poker
I feel , if I had a STOP button ,that someone could push for me , id be a winning pl;ayer , almost definetly , however , whats a winnig player?
if to be a winning player , u have to clear a profit regularly ,
well if it takes , hours a day at micro stakes in order to profit $10-50 a week on average , then ............ no thanks............. I don't have the time or patience to play that much at that level in order to profit $10 a day on average , I get that playing within ur bankroll keeps u form losing large sums of money , and keeps u going , and overtime is extremely wise , but BIG picture here ,
over 3 months will say , if I play the way I play , I could be anywhere from -$300 to +$2000 , odds are will be close to even
over 3 months , playing within my bankroll , I could be anywhere from , -$50 to +900ish odds are id be around even to +100
I belive my guesstimated numbers are semi accurate , and honeslty , even looking BIG P
ICTURE , im not really interested in playing micro stakes
