2 weeks ago i had it all, it was a dream come true i finally had a bankroll for 1/2 live poker. Im sitting in the casino bathroom 19 years old counting my 45 hundred dollar bills after walking in there with 300 dollars and grinding up from nothing to being easily rolled and haveing my 1/2 poker careerer set up for me after trying for the last 5 months to get something going. I go broke 3 days later
at this point all i have to do is play a simple system. buy in the game for 200 play solid and if im tilted play later. I did the opposite i bought in for 200 played horrible and kept on rebuying. i stacked off 1400 dollars playing 2/5 knowingly playing horrible. raising every hand flatting 40 dollar raises ect ect. going allin pre with k8 off going all in happily with flush draw with horrendous odds. just throwing my money and my poker carerer away not even thinking. I was playing like it was play money i dont know whats wrong with me. go to the 1010 game play solid for a little then i blow my whole stack making moron plays. All i needed to do was play solid 1/2 instead im donating my poker bankroll with no way of getting it back no back up and my mind was somewhere else i wish i knew where it was. Now i have no bankroll. im waiting for my next pay check (300) and i don't even wanna play 1/2 again. I just wanna slap it online and follow the poker commandments and play 10/25 cent grind up the levels as i should honestly i feel like i could be at 1/2 at no time only problem is im afraid i wont ever get the cashout and it will be a wasted effort and im still chaseing the dream of bein back in the casino grinding the big game. but with no money wat the fuck can i do?
walking into the casino with 300 and trying to grind 1/2 seems like a disaster, yeah thats how i got to 4 grand the first time but with variance seems like im on the downside right now and imma go busto and be sidelined and theres nothing worse as a poker player (im sure pros can relate) then not being able to do ur job or play the game.
so i need a vote on the blog from poker players that have been in my shoes before going busto. DO i play 1/2 live and hope to run good and just stay playing 1/2 untill i have saved enough to advanced to 2/5 or do I risk the 300 online grind 5/10c to 10c/25c to 25c/50c to 50c/1$ till 1/2 then cash it out and go live? note not playing dosent really work for me i dont wanna wait 40 weeks to save up 4 grand i need to be in the game. but whats smarter live short or comfortably playing online?
