  1. March 2011: I learned poker at the age of 22 it was a little bit late yet i had a little edge i used to be a chess player and a really good one but just found out that chess wasnt gonna give me an financial reward because it would take a lifetime for me to reach a master class so i decided to play the game most other lebanese play (POKER)
    Ii had 400 $ in my internet card so i taught that after learning the basics it was time to try online poker so i started exploring multiple sites like (pokerstars , fulltilt , 888, titan , 770 , and the entire ipoker network site ) meanwhile i was reading and studying poker like a nerd and was doing good with my 400 $ specially on fulltilt where i put 100 and at the end of march it had become 250 . on 888 i was creating new accounts daily from different computers and playing with the 8 dollar . i remember i once cashed out 130 $. Pokerstars was the main downstream for me because i lost 200 dollars during march alone .
    Anyway i continued playing poker after black friday and found out that the game was becoming much tighter now that the americans where no longer online , i lost my 400 dollars bankroll by the end of july and wasnt able to withdraw the 180 i had left on fulltilt since it was shut down. I considered leaving the game but i was already in love with it so instead i turned to local Lebanese sites where so many fishes and donks where playing and was soon able to make an everage of 1k a month on sites like stars of holdem and urpoker meanwhile i was using half o what i was winnig to play on Pokerstars where i was still unable to make a profit so i stopped playing there. Still i was reading and trying to improve my game ( i read doyles brunson super system 1 and slansky theory of poker ...)
    A few month ago the local sites changed their policy and where offering no more freerolls instead they created what is known as the no limit omaha game where its all about going all in for a bingo . this fact added to the fact that most of them were rigged and uncertified lead to me stopping to play on these sites .
    I stopped playing for a month but once again the dream of becoming a poker champion hunted me this time i decided to play only on pokerstars putting 50 dollars eadch month and in the last 3 month here are my results :
    MAY: i put 50 dollars and turned it to 500 in one week ny playing 15 dollars sng then i lost it all on a tilt after a bad beat in a heads up game of 100 $
    June : i put 50 dollars play 3.5 heads up sng reach 130 and then start taking beats to go play cash just to lose all of it in heads up cash 0.25/0.5$
    july : i put 50 and withtin three days it was already 700 dollars from cash heads up 0.5/ to 1/2 .
    and here comes the most frustrating part i was able to beat the game at the 1/2 stakes and yet when i reached 700 dollars i didnt know how to continue it was obcious that softwares like pokeredge and holdem manager showed 1/2 players my palying style and now i was either unable o making a big profit or losing .
    5 days ago i had 550 $ left and in a tilting session crashed them all on 1/2 games and a slow 55 dollars tournament that i registered by mistake.

    Now here are the facts i can present : - i go by the name of ernestto18 on pokerstars i am great heads up and sng player as u can see if u check my stratistics but i lack the gift of patience .
    - even though i played live several times and was a winner everytime i play i dont have enough bankroll nor experience to play at local cassinos where games start at 5/10 blinds
    - the problem i am really facing is the truth that on pokerstars i cannot exploit my edge and prove my level of skill on low limit tournaments where the number of players makes it virtually impossible to consider winning a tournament nor on low stakes sng where the reward is meaningless / nor do i have the right bankroll to play heads up games where i feel the most comfortable (1/2 $ )

    So after a year and a half of poker i am considering for the 3rd time to stop playing the game unless someone can help me and give me an advice on how to really become a successfull player what games should i play if i put another 50$ next month? what do i do when i succeed in making 500 $ how do i build a real bankroll online so that i can have the chance to participate in the WCOOP 2012 and prove myself .


    Ps: thnks to anyone who will help and i am ready to paly heads up against any player who wishes to even if it is for real money just for the loce of the game and competition.
  2. It sounds a good deal to me like you are playing out out of your bankroll. Almost every single game you had far too little to be playing. IE using $50 to play .5/1. You are putting so much on just one single session. There is so much variance and other factors that come into play that you should not be in so much of a gambling mood. I would highly suggest that if your spikes in br was skill, you play lower buyin games. Yes it will suck and you won't be making anywhere near what you want to, but if you don't then you are pretty much taking a gamble whenever you play. You can move in with Aces all you want for your entire bankroll, but when he flops a set of kings, no one will feel sorry that you just lost your whole roll. Yes its a bad beat, but unless you are cool with just playing for fun and not caring whether or not you go bust, it was your fault you lost that money. Never play with your bankroll. If you really feel confident that you can play at these stakes, then put up or grind up. Either drop the thousands and play at the level you want to or put in a little and start working your way up. Not very many have been able to just waltz right in and instantly hit gold. You're gonna have to work for this.

    If you want to build your bankroll and you don't want to just deposit a mass of cash, then you're going to have to use proper bankroll management.

    Jennifear did a service for us in putting this up. If you stick to this then hopefully you will see a definite increase in your ROI. Most importantly. You can't let losses get to you. Time upon time upon time have I see my aces lose to J 4 or KK or 78s. It happens. If you let it get inside you it will throw your game off. At that point, just stand up and say "you know what? I'm not in the right mindset for this" and leave. I have done it. There have been times where I'd play 4 tourneys at a time and bust out of three in the first 30-min and just get up and go out for a cig or have some personal time and come back. If I had chips, good. If I didn't well I wouldn't mind it either because I know that if I had stayed I would have entered more tournaments and obviously have been off my game and just pissed it away. On the same note, heaters will come. Enjoy then and take every dime you can get. But do not let it go to your head either. It's one thing to feel invincible, winning hand after hand raking in the chips, and acting invincible, losing pot after pot giving chips away because you though you were doing so good you wouldn't lose.

    Long story short. You need to play within your bankroll, and keep your emotions very calm. If you do feel your emotions taking over in either way, Get up immediately. Have fun and good luck to you on the tables!

  4. Honestly, I see some similarities, first of all There is no way I wound up building my bank roll playing on Poker Stars. We deposited about $575 and lost it all, about the best I could do was I won about $40 in a pot limit omaha tournament. This one time I played in one of their guaranteed prize pool tournaments, I played six and a half hours, got 24th place and won $14. I knew right then and there that you basically have to make the final table in low buy in tournaments in order to win substantial cash. The $1/2 cash game you like to play sounds pretty good, in fact I have played in that game on Poker Stars, I didn't do to well because I lost my patience and tilted at the wrong time and called my money off with second pair against aces. Right about then I knew I had to slow down in order to win. Online poker is a lot of fun and it can seem easy at times, but if you are not careful, you wind up going broke. I got rolled on Poker Stars, it seemed difficult, I am not a bad poker player, bear in mind that I have played more than a few live cash games at the local Casino at $2/4 NL and have walked off the table with over $1,150 in one session. It seems like I do better in real cash games. I have played on another site called Cake Poker and I got to tell you that the action is flying on the pot limit omaha game, the $1/2 has a minimum buy in of like $80 and there were three people over $1,000 some with $1,200 and $1,500. for a low buy in that is a lot of action. I am assuming you are a foreign player due to the fact that Poker Stars is no longer accepting American players. My advice, try pot limit omaha, the starting hands are more liberal, there is a lot of action, it is easier to make the nuts, and it is easier to get paid off when you have a big hand. Practice first though, especially if you are not familiar with the game. I suggest that you give Cake Poker a try, nice action. The major setback is that the minimum cash out they will tender is $500 you can buy in for as low as $25, and you have to send them proper documentation of I.D. proof of residence and so on. Not to mention that it takes approximately 4 months to get a check. It is possible to build a bank roll there.

  20. What did I just read?
     
  21. let s try and set things right i seriously started this thread to ask for a little help then all these jokers came around thinking they could have a few laughs forgetting the basic rule every fuking normal human knows which is u can never compete with a lebanese when it comes to bulling others .
    So anyway i would like to make this last statement yes u guys have made 100 ks + from poker (even if most of u are not really as profitable as this and most are even not profitable any more like many pros in this world) but u all forgot that all of u made this money back in the days where online poker was still booming and most sites were filled with zynga players who made donks look clever and the other Or others made these huge amounts by being incredibly lucky and winning a tournament with more thatn 3000 players.
    So for Gods sake people try to be realistic and humble for once and admit that no one and i insist on the word no one can come and say i am better than u especially in poker where luck and variance play the major role .
    Anyway i would be replying to helpful posts from now on and for others who want to be funny or girls who want to jerk off because they are alone i have no problem to keep fuckin ur asses all night elsewhere !
