This is my 5th attempt of building bankroll from 0. Decided to post here some results to keep motivated and focused and FAR away from cash tables (since that's how i lost all of them).
History: Yachting poker - 0-58eur High pulse poker - 0-358eur Pokerstars - 0-160$ Pokerstars - 0-32$
5th attemt: After placing 4th in BRM freeroll yesterday i placed today 1st in 0.25 MTT for 5$ and 0.10$ MTT for 6$ Busted in few more 0.10$ mtts and current balance is 10$ Gonna play 0.25$ [100 added] and 0.55 [500GTD turbo] in half an hour then hit the bed. Hope i'll manage to adjust to format in time since structure is different on both. Wish me luck, i'll post results.
------------ And result is this:
0,55 500gtd Field cut by half, and this is what happens (nick boleslav):

Well in my opinion you play too aggressive.
1 st hand : Going all-in with K9 unsuited... I 've lost some hands with much better cards.
I would have called preflop and raised after the flop (outcome would have been the same if he called, but my chances would have been better)
2 nd hand : Ok it s a hand were you had the best chances and you lost. But I would not have gone allin with pocket Js. Such a raise is mostly AA,KK, AK or AQ so you would have lost to all those hands. In my opinion it s ok to raise with pocket Js of 3 to 4 bb, or make a call versus such a raise preflop (I would not go allin with such cards as you mostly play versus monsterhands)
tip : try to play more postflop , try to get in the play as cheap as possible with suited connectors and play it smart when you hit on the flop. This is less risky play versus donks

Wtf are you doing. You didn't call his bluff...YOU SHOVED ON IT WITH K9 OFF Whether he was bluffing or not you're the idiot. You shoved on a fish when you didn't have the goods yourself. We've all been there but in my opinion you're the bigger fish here.

Sorry if i'm mistaken i thought poker isn't about what you hold in your hand. It's about other player cards and what he should do. But what do i know. Don't want to sound arrogant so i accept criticism that i should lower aggression.
Posted by Mysik86: You're not consequent... You say that you will be FAR away from cash tables, and you show us hand from cash game... Hmmmm
Yeah thought this thread will control me a bit. Tried omaha as well got 3$ now. Back to 0.10 mtt

I think this bit of advice is the key. I remember playing few sessions in past like that and can't recall steaming or losing so much in short period. Hope i'll go back up and try it again. Thanks for advice. Cheers.

I saw the main problem is after win - win, start losing ( like me ) zero - some $$$ and then zero again. Play not properly card is wrong, but play well still lost Still looking for way to be winning player

Just want to also add that i make plays like this myself. More often than I should. When there is a fish at my table who is really lucky, I start thinking things I shouldn't be, on hands I shouldn't be thinking that. Sometimes I also go on tilt and don't accept it or don't realise it. Maybe this is what happened here.

looking at your history it's easy to spot that you are a decent mtt player, since every time you've built your roll from zero your first cashes came from mtt freerolls- of course it's your call what to do with your money, but i gues playing the games that you are best in (mtt's) would be logical enough?

If your actually really putting forth an effort to build a BR from basically nothing I believe you need to slow your play down a bit when you get up a few dollars. You can't be pushing allin with K9 and there's nothing for you to gain. Even if he was bluffing witha n A or K,10 above your going to lose this. Not saying what's right for you, but a bit more patience to build a BR from nothing!

I think you can do it better... last night i've played a tournament of $1000 on party ... i was ITM with only 2 BB (2000-4000 blinds) ... dealer give me KK, i shove, 2 players call me and 3rd goes all in... that 2 players fold and i was all in KK vs JJ ... flop QA2, turn 5 and river J really don't understand why i get KK or why he hit the set on the river :|
good luck on building your bankroll from nothing, it will take sometime but with good bank roll management and playing games within your reach (once you get some money built up) you should be able to make some money.

On the limits you currently play it's ALL about what you are holding. You can't bluff anybody when 0,25$ is at stake and you can't put your opponent on a hand for the same reason. They all play like it is the last day of their life.
