Well whilst waiting for Titan to sort themselves out I wasted my $50 bankroll in both Mansion and Winner. Donks in tournaments etc. So i won't be playing again for a month or so ... or until i get my $50 Gift Offer! (Two Weeks waiting and no sign of it or reply from BRM finance team) so i'm thinking a month is adequate!

Good luck everyone and enjoy! The day you stop enjoying is the day to stop playing!

Not going to criticize, but doomdy may have a point. Maybe you should take some time to read in "Poker Strategies" or there's athread that is based on SnG strategies. Search through the threads and read the posts that offer advice! Let me say I did this and listened to comments such as the one by doomdy, don't get upset, change your techniques, methods and play less hands and only the best hands. Don't play K,8 or A,9 or J,9 etc. Play KK, AK fewer hands better results. Don't try to bluff, know when to bluff. I may bluff one maybe two hands in a game and only once they know I'm not a bluffer.

Yes Doomdy back in the day I was a rigtard! I stopped playing online and started playing live. Turned a nice profit so decided to do both! TBH I'd be the first to admit if I was playing bad but I don't think I am! For example I was in a $3k guaranteed near the bubble, I had AK Hearts so raised 3x and was re raised by big stack to 8x, I went all in and he called, he showed J9 off and spiked on the river. It's little hands like that that's taking my bankroll! Annoying as it may be that's Poker and I'm getting majorly tilted so taking some time off!

From what i undesrtand you have played tournaments which are known to have a crazy variance, even on PLO zoom you have less variance than on mtts lol

My only suggestion would be to keep a better bankroll management in the future because bad beats and donks will always be present unfortunately Sad

2 weeks and you blow your rolls, as said above bankrollmanagment, key No1. to being a successful player, or at least lose it slowly.
Reflect on why things are going wrong, yes j9 will beat AK from time to time, but BRM allows for this play.
There hav been time in a game when I have thought, shall I play this idiot with my "better hand" and leave it to luck, or just let him have a few chips and play those who respect the game.
Its like over betting the calling station, whats the point.

from what i read i kinda feel that you might have played bigger buy in tournaments than your bankroll allowed you, maybe i am wrong...but with proper bankroll management $50 is a decent bank to ride through downswings- lower the limits when you are losing and up them when you are winning Confused and not to mention that you busted two bankrolls of$50...well maybe next time is the lucky one Thumbs Up

So just explain this hand , you say you are not a BAD player , you're in a 3k guaranteed near the buble , you raise with A K s , big stack re-raised you to 8 X , why the f..k did u reraise him and go all-in , especially near the bubble ? why risk your tournament, you could've just called, seen the flop , and then decide it it's worth risking your tournament , but still you decided to donk out and just go all in vs the big stack , cause u had A K , in my book , that's bad play , and you need to catch up with your poker knowledge.

Because big stack was playing any two hands so against his range there was an extremely high probability I had the best hand! Surely there's no point in playing an MTT to min cash rather than win? To me that's bad play. Ten dollar tourney and you expect me to grind for three or mmore hours to win twenty dollars? Should I fold aces when there's only twenty left until cash just incase someone spikes and I'm gone? Wise up

You just don't understand what I just said in my earlier reply , I just think you're a bad player , and I'd bet that you don't respect the bankroll management strategy , cause if u did , you wouldn't be so upset because you lost a 10 $ buy-in tournament , due to your bad play.

When you are having a ridiculous downswing i advice to take a break or just play poker for fun or very low stacks. When you make a low profit start playing again. Thumbs Up

Just take a break and come when you think you are ready to face the donks again.. And don't forget to play too much tight, to reduct the probability of the donks win with a worse hand than yours.. Just spent a little time reading the table and check the amount you have to raise to receive a call, or to make your opponents fold if you want to they to do it. Good luck!

just before the bubble ,,reraising the chipleader with all inn.. is very,very ,very bad play,,

if this was part of ur strategy ,or plan ,,ok,, then u had bad luck and should not complain...

but since u reraise all inn without A-A u where expexting to lose that hand....if u ask me.

so not respecting the bubble and the possible money u missed by not reaching itm,

if u had a deasent stack after reaching itm ,, i am sure you would get much better spots to put ur money all inn during that tournament...


good luck in the future anyway..

I also think you have to respect the bubble more cause winning little money is better than losing a tournement like that. Your Hand was played bad for the situation of the tournament i think early tournement you could do that and also if you are short stacked after the bubble so yeah it was bad playing.
But Gl in the future hope you can stop your downsing

Read some articles, watch some videos, read some books.

In poker the learning is never finished.
