maybe you need to stop playing cah games , playing 1 table sit&go is in my opinion a good way to learn more and improve your game , you can also play this game at a low level like 1$ - 2$ - 3$ or try the double or nothing sit&go at the same level but play than very thight and let other players do the work for you because you just need to survive in DoNs .

I don t think u should quit because first of all everyone at some points just runs bad. I can guarantee to you that I haven t had such a bad running like this in a long time, I mean, every time i go allin i'm fav and always seems to loose in the end If u r shoving everytime with the best hand than i don t think there's more u can do. The rest u gotta leave it to luck. Secondly if u still enjoy playing, then i definitely think u should keep playing

never play money you use to live. just playing with money you have for fun or for fun. Also would be nice to know that this kind of risk one willing to run. Not all the way bear the losses. if you feel that you are losing, then do not hesitate, you will lose.

When you lose confidence in your play its best to take a break. If you can't afford to lose money on poker its better to stick to playmoney or micro-limits. It works for me! I only play for fun, never thought I could be a winning player, so I deposit less then $50 a year.
wow this post still floating about, well all i can say is that im starting to play poker again on jan 1st with 100 pound for a bankroll gonna see if my new plan works i also put a post up last week about what am gonna do, think the post was call starting afresh 2010

Posted by Pjot: I voted for you to stop playing poker. If you have not become a winning player for nine years, and you lose your last money, poker is probably not for you.
i agree 100% nine years is enough time to learn more than just the basics. i can understand people who lose money, as long as its fun to them and they can afford the losses, though to me it wouldn't be fun to see other people taking my money for years. if you don't want to quit completely go for freerolls, but don't waste your money. if you're not going to quit, please join me at the table

Posted by teteban: stop. Once you don't care about losing money is because you're on an emotional down turn, you lost control of yourself. Do yourself a favor and stop for a while, whatever time you need
You should take a few weeks (or months) break, have some fun with other things, and it's pretty sure that when you will come back on poker after, you will have pleasure again.
