how to get out of this online losing rut?
i am continuing to lose on pokerstars
. the bankroll that i deposited a couple of weeks ago is substantially down. i have had the occassional tilt, but nothing too huge, not been playing ridiculous size buy ins for mtt's or whatever either. i started off at just over 500, i soon dropped below and stayed around this mark for over a week, i felt it very hard to get back to positive. then last night i had a disaster, ended up something like 20 tabling and losing like a 1/4 of my br through robotic play and very bad decision making (and too many tables.)
i then played some sng's and a couple of mtt's that night after cooling off and went slightly up, maybe $10 or so, but it is very hard to be positive when you have just lost 10x that.
then today i started off again playing sng's and broke even- winning 2 of the $3.50 9 man sng's out of about 4 i played, i also played the $1.50 ones and both stakes of 50/50.
i then wanted to try something new and ended up playing the cap 0.25/0.50, within my br as you only actually take $10 to the table. i started off being up like $20, then checked my balance just over an hour later and i was actually down like 3 or 4 buy ins AGAIN. i was 8 tabling, which is not a lot at all.
near the end of that session it crossed my mind that because we were only playing 20bb's- it would cost $0.75 each orbit times that by 8 tables which is like $6.00 roughly. so basically for around every ten mins unless i stole the blinds ATLEAST once an orbit i was going to be losing. i dunnoo if this is a stupid thought but it was in my thoughts at the end of the session.
anyway, basically i am playing sng's/ cash/ cap/ plo/ mtt's you name it. before i was just playing mtt's, but after losing my last roll that i managed to build up through playing them, my confidence is not as great at them any longer.
i am burning through my new role AGAIN, i think i am kind of playing a bit of scared poker, because when i am playing live i don't care about losing 1 or 2 buy ins and i am still playing profitbaly there, have done for a good bit now. but online i am losingggggggggggg. help haha
