"It has not been a good year for Richard "nutsinho" Lyndaker so far on PokerStars and our results show him down almost $900.000.

Lyndaker has been talking about his bad run lately via his Twitter account, and he says that he is considering quitting online poker.

Below you can read few Tweets from Lyndaker's Twitter:

"Impossibly bad downswing immediately follows heater AGAIN. November will be the last month of 'nutsinho' playing on Pokerstars. Sad times..."

"Continuing to run terrible every single day this year... Just never ends, probably quitting online poker after the next 2 months"

Lyndaker is currently the biggest loser this year on PokerStars, while Rafael "refaelamit" Amit is the biggest winner with almost $2M in winnings."

This would be pretty sad, maybe he should try a new poker platform Smile

I dont agree with that he should try a new platform,pokerstars is the only site that offers highstakes games regulary,so that's the place he should stay at.
IMO he should just take a break,quitting an easy source of income like poker where basicly all you have to do it clicking buttons and having some deep thoughts would be stupid for someone who's as good at it as him.
A break had done good to many players in the past Smile

I haven't followed Richard Lyndaker much this year, but although he is very good I have never considered him among the best of the best. Maybe he is taking on too many players who are better than him, or, as often happens, the game is constantly changing and if you don't keep up you better start going back down in limits or you will be wiped out. The game has changed unbelievably since I started online four or five years ago, and many have not adapted and have long since become yesterday's news.

If he really quits for ever online poker he wont be the first or last one.
Maybe a break can help him but if he comes back and the same story continues might be a disaster. Smile

You mean nosebleeds. You can play high stakes on many rooms, even some smaller rooms offer quite good amount of high stakes tables. Of course it won't be NL5k or NL10k, but still you can play a little bit lower stakes.

I think there's a little more to playing professionally than clicking buttons.

The amount of study, self-improvement and long grinding sessions are a lot more work than one can even fathom. Not to mention the stress of routinely losing large sums in one session/hand, sums larger than most of us will make in a year.

This reply is probably going to come with a lot of bad responses but I am willing to take this risk! Back when I was 18 I was lucky enough to inherit a sum of money and my first ever online Poker account was with Pokerstars. I deposited £3000 and after 3 weeks and daily play at $10/$5 I got that up to around £4400. At these stakes you get the same players day in day out and gradually build up a good list of notes on each player, how they play certain hands etc. I took one week off to go on holiday, returned to the site against the same players and had a 6 week run of bad luck taking my bankroll down to £500. I took a one week break, returned to the site and after another 3 weeks my bankroll was up to £2000 then all of a sudden, same players same stakes bye bye bankroll. I decided to take a longer break and deposited another £2000 and lost it within the space of 3 months. Now evidently I am not a pro but I very rarely played anything less that face cards or suited high cards and I still got gubbed.

I'm not trying to insinuate Pokerstars is in any way rigged, it may be genuine bad luck but it seems winning was an incentive to keep playing and re-deposit. So in a rager with support i closed my account and got that lifetime ban on re-opening it (my choice). Now almost 5 years later I wish I hadn't. I really want back to stars!!! Any ideas on getting my account reopened?

@ godward89
playin 5/10 with 5000 ish ( after conversion ) you are very likely to go bust soon. and skill level is high at these stakes, so u need much more than hand selection to survive there.

and regardin gettin ur account back - try apologizing and requestin support to re-open ur account, maybe they'll listen.

The way I interpret bankroll management is 2% of total bankroll. So $10 at $5000 ish is perfectly fine?

depends what u mean by 5/10.
usually it means u are playin stakes of 5/10 blinds
but maybe u meant u were playin tables with full buyin 10$ and 5$ ? then u are playin way too low for your bankroll. wud be really surprised someone go bust with such high bankroll management due to variance.
or maybe u played tournaments, even though they hav high variance but 500 buyin downswing is way too much to be explained by variance alone.

I think you should say in a life time not a year.
How many of us here are close into making 900k US dollars in a single year?
I will answer that to you.
None Smile
