So I probably should not indulge this info but what the hell...made 700 then lost 100 on nothing but insane bad beats, wasn’t until I “tried” to cash out that non stop and I mean non stop bad beats came at me, I know variance, this isn’t variance, it is an F5 tornado of bad beats lol.

Do I really need to move to NJ or Vegas to play online poker?
What is people’s take on regulated vs non regulated sites? Can anyone affirm that poker skills work online in 2020?



Thanks

The site I experienced this on was BetOnline just to be clear of my experience.
I can’t judge or make inferential deductions on other sites just because I saw insane bad beats on one site only.
I am however curious how anyone is doing on ANY site period.

Often you hear this withdraw doom an gloom. be happy you did. For me it's a way of life . I don't need the funds so it goes up slower than it goes down. Mostly just deposited once except bol. See u @ the 10 nl tables

I have only won decent money in a couple of mirco tourneys. If you watch twitch, the sponsered streamers of poker sites win all the time. Kinda weird huh?

I make good money on Poker Match, just this poker room is registered in my country. It is easy to withdraw money and often free promotions take place.

I try to avoid PS as their freerolls always have 1000+ players.


Did you come from future or what cause otherwise you'd know that PS cardchat daily freerolls do not have always 1000+ players in it ...

I didn't come from the future. I never specified CC freerolls, but freerolls in general. I haven't played CC freerolls on PS yet.

Fairly confident I'm up on every site I've played. (Stars, 888, Party, GG)

Thanks freerolls! :laugh:

I rarely, if ever, deposit these days. When I do, it's to take advantage of a promotion rather than out of necessity.

Decided two or three years ago that if I ever get felted I rebuild BR from freerolls.

Thankfully I've only had to do that a couple of times.

$0-$200 via freerolls & micros can be a bit of a slog... :boring::stoned::help:

That is great advice! I hugely value the free rolls here on cardschat as the games are a blast and the competition is fantastic! The daily ACR freerolls are one of the coolest experiences on the internet period! I’ve never really thought of that in terms of rebuilding if I bust out. No reason to deposit if you have the skills to win or place at a free roll..geez right in front of me and didn’t even put it together until now lol I’ve always saw the freerolls as training and not for making money but not anymore! They are for both!

I'm extremely passionate about poker, I've loved it since my teens.

A few years ago I decided to take a run at playing poker 'seriously', after being a recreational player for around fifteen years or so.

Luckily, I didn't have any capital to invest in the pursuit, so my model and aspiration has always been to 'build it from nothing'.

If I ever get some kind of breakthrough, and beat the incredible odds stacked against me, I'm sure I'll take great pride in the fact that I built my BR from zero. :wink:

BR
pokerstars

Good morning everyone, I play at pokerstars, 888poker, blackchipoker, bet365, natural8 and partypoker.
I am profitable at pokertstars and partypoker is the site that I find most difficult to profit from.

Making money

I am a beginner and so far I have tried PS and Party. I always start being profitable with the first 100 hands or so, and then I always end up losing my BR with a couple of bad beats. My hand: AAKK6 his hand 666AK.

Making such a decision and then following through is the key. I recently posted in another thread about how I have gone about the first year of CC membership. 5 sites playing freerolls (and other tourneys entered via free roll cashes/tickets) and I am now up on all five.

However no other buy in's (as a discipline to retain backrolls) and no withdrawals (likewise).

That said, I am surprised that people can't pinpoint accurately where they stand with each account -and this appears frequently the case. It's an indicator of who takes their accounts seriously (which includes amongst other things free rolls as mentioned here) I have a spread sheet for each site I play. I have colums for ...Tournament, Day of Week, Prize Pool, Finish Position, Prize, Stack From Zero.

This is a key motivating tool for me. I know precisely the number of times I have cashed each site, and the exact total of cash I have accumulated (this is in part why I do not bother following CC leaderboards). I have a further sheet which details a breakdwon of totals from each site. So for example with two sites I have played in 5 different freerolls on each - I have a seperate count and cash total on every free roll. I then have a 'best cashes' sheet.

I have detailed this before and concluded others do not find it necessary. But as noted, it is a fantastic motivational tool, particualrly when in a downswing. You can see the arc of your progress, remind yourself you do cash regualrly etc. and all you are doing is experiencing a set back in the short term.

One of the best pieces of advice which I took to heart was a pro underlining to be successful in MTTs a pro needed to learn to cash regularly, that you could/should never rely on the occasional 'big score' to carry you through the leaner times - it would catch up with you.

So on my humble level I have always noted every cash and been proud, whether it is 5 cents or 5 dollars.When it is all laid out on a speadsheet you can see the arc of your progress and achievement. And as you remarked Tracid, if and when I make a truly notable score I will know how I got there.
