Yesterday I played 50/50 with only $5 in my bankroll now. I went down to $2 then won back to $7. Now I'm down to $4. Like WTF?! Can someone PLEASE give me an article on SnG. I'm learning the small ball philosophy for MTT but I don't have time to be entering them all the time. I just want to WIN Turbo SnG. I'm sick of reading the same strategies because every man and his dog does the same thing now and they are all hyper aggressive. I tried playing cash but got bored of sitting for an hour to earn 50c in 2nl.
Most of the players here that give good advice have played for more then 5 years . You only playing 6 months and mad because of not being profitable.
me a couple things , you have not understood some of the things you read , you havent experienced enough in game play to make good judgements on your game and the players around you at the table .
Study more , get a good understanding of things and get that experience you will need to make better judgements . Poker is not a get rich quick career.
theres alot of study and work that goes into it .
Good skill at the tables
