See Where You Rank in Virginia

  1. in Nov-Dec-Jan I had won almost 30k in tourneys and 1/2 PLO. Since feb i went on a retarded cooler and havnt won since and if I have gave it right back. I been drinking more and more trying to get over this cooler....... I havnt been working much and just yesterday I decided to quit for the rest of the year..... I have just enough to get me through all my bills for the next 6 months..... so whats my play? Do I extremely tighten down and load 1500-2000$ on? And come to my senses that if I lose im going to be out on my ass? Also recently FL upgraded the stakes and since then ive taken a bath for 2900$...

    So there for do I load up money and try and use bankroll management and good poker. To try and make a come back..... If so this my thread that I will update not that anyone cares but to let myself know if this day was the day that put me under the bridge in 6 months from now..... or the day that made me.
  2. variance lol

    tilt and bankroll management ftw!
     
  3. In reality maybe you just went on a sick heater to go up 30k and now your back to normal??... Theres long losing streaks i get that but until you get the drinking under control you might as well just ship me half of what you planned on depositing and send the other half to charity as it will be a lost cause. Get the drinking under control and maybe start living a healthy lifestyle and work again then worry about cards.
  4. get a job
  5. if you do it right...you can have the whole summer off!"
  6. 1. control drinking
    2. get a job
    3. once you have an income play some 1/2 nl at your casino
    4. take winnings and deposit
    5. stop drinking
  7. solid plan, go for it

    qf great advice
     
  9. This sounds like just about the worst time to "go pro". When you have bills to pay and no income, even a break even month can be disastrous, unless you have a huge bankroll. If your goal is to play for a living, you'll probably get there faster by working and keep playing on your spare time. That way you don't have to worry about expenses constantly eating at your bankroll, forcing you down in stakes whenever you're running bad or playing bad, or both.

    About a year ago I quit my job with just a 10-12k bankroll to grind MTSNGs and MTTs. For a while it went really well and at one point I was up to 30k. But running (and playing) bad for a couple of months, and having lots of bills to pay, left me playing above my bankroll and finally busting after 9 months. I can't help but think where I'd be today if I had just kept working and had a steady income to take care of my expenses while I was grinding my way up. I would have been able to comfortably handle downswings and work on my game. In stead I had to get a job again and start from scratch :/
  10. OK, deposit of 1500$ onto UB has been succesful. I will start by playing the 22r,27.50,66$,82.50$
  11. So much for bankroll management huh?

    By Sunday?? Drunk, can't get off the floor, your insides are screaming for another drink because your trying to forget the 2k you just lost (blew, donked, whatever), that you desperately couldn't afford to blow, but the drinking isn't helping to forget, so your just in this vicious cycle now, only to find out that you desperately can't stop drinking?!?! Been there, done that, yea...those were the Good Ol' Sundays! Enjoy :)
  22. ¡qué clasico!

  27. Let us know how you get on in these tournaments. Although im afraid i probably already know the ending to this story.
  28. Wow I don't know what to say to this post so maybe I should say nothing, but... You have a drinking problem and you obviously have a gambling problem or you wouldn't take a portion of what little money you have and deposit it on UB and plan to play at stakes that are clearly above your bankroll. You say you are going to play the $22r so when playing rebuys you need to figure on a minimum of 5 units and 7 is preferable which = a possible $102 to $142 for this one game which means with $1500 you can play at most 15 of these. You even say you are going to play other games at higher stakes. Even if you are lucky enough to go on a heater with this type of bankroll management you will still be broke before long.

    Then you come back and say you don't want to take TC's offer because you don't want to "keep track of all that". I'm just trying to be helpful here and not flaming you but before you blow the $1500 you really need to get your head on straight. Follow the above advise:

    Stop drinking
    Practice proper bankroll management
    Get a job and save up some money
    Get your head in the right place before you play again

    I've been running really bad and as a result my play is suffering and I'm about to take some time away from the table to re-group and take a break.

    As for live cash games in Florida I just played there a few weeks ago in the Tampa/St. Pete area and I've never seen such soft competition. If you are 1/2 way decent you should be able to play the 1/2 or 1/3 cash tables and make a killing.

    Best of luck to you but you really should take the advice being given here.

    Actually it's kind of like you asked for advice, received some really good advice and now you're determined to prove everyone who gave you advice wrong or something.
