Just finished 30 in 0.10 50$ add on Pokerstars to 0.61$ out of over 2700 players. Lost with AK against A-10 for the chiplead a pot over 255000, still had 66000 left. Lost the last chips on a straight and flush draw, but i didnt hit, so bad luck, otherwise i would have been back 150K. Suck out. Angry

30 is pretty good out of 2700, as you know mtt has huge variance so you need to expect to loses from time to time...

Better luck next time and make sure to respect the bankroll management Blink

30/2700 - great place... maybe winnings is not too big - $0.61 only, but you should be satisfied, that you beat ~2670 players!

It’s so sad when we have lots of outs and the table doesn’t gives us what we were looking for, straight draw and flush draw and… bang, just another useless card. At least you got to paid places, it wasn’t that much but you did better than 2670 of the 2700 players that entered that tourney. Think positive.

Frankly i do not think pokerstars is good poker platform to build up a bankroll.

The site is great at higher limits where you can find good players to play with but on micro stakes my advice would be to try out other platforms: 888, yachting Blink

Look at the good side of it, you multiplied your investment by six, not bad at all. This is one of moments in which we think “have i just been playing for three hours to win $0.60?”. But, at games with this buy-in, we know we can reach the dollars, but that means a loto f work. The way you lost it here wasn’t nice and i bet it upset you, you even wanted to share it here and you did well, but you are doing a great job at those tables.

You did very well to wind up ITM in one of these Stars tourneys. Most don't ever come close. Sorry for the way you went out and surely you played your A game. You should be proud of that fact because it's a fact one can play their A game and still lose. Could be also even if you hit your draw it winds up being 2nd nuts. If I may offer a suggestion, try the freerolls to win tickets to the Sat/Sun Round 2, 2K freerolls. Took awhile and I've managed to win 10 tickets. Most recent was last nite in an 8 game...6.5 hours to win the ticket in a field of 3888 players...top 48 earned one. Needless to say that's a ton of playing mixed games for a ticket but its free. Doing this also gives one an opportunity to try out different poker games to see if any of the other variants suits one better. For example. I now know PLO, PLO hi/lo, Limit HE, and 7 Stud play better for me compaired to HLHE, 2-7 Lowball, and Razz...need to work on these more. In the end my goal is to be able to say you name it I'll play it. Maybe worth a try? Smile

BTW, Annie Duke says it best "give a bad beat expect a bad beat, off to the next one"

Definately on Pokerstars 30 out of 2700 is a good effort, though as usual you wont make big bucks from small buy ins on stars and you have to mix it up a bit into the higher stakes, and watch the playing style change. Well done though and good luck for next time.

i would have to agree that stars is not the most friendly place to build bankroll from scratch, they do run lots of freerolls (every hour i believe) and if you place in the top 50 or so you can qualify for weekly final which has $1000 if i remember- so this is it, other sites, especiallysmaller ones tend to offer more ways to build from zero

Normally there are to many players at the stars freerolls, but the 50$ added tourneys and the 100k "freerolls" are verry interested for micro limit players. For the other frerrolls there you need 4-5 hours or more for a prize.
