small mistakes lead to big dissapointments  0   
I feel really stupid about a tourney i played on PS yesterday and wanted to share the story. I am going to list the events so its easier to follow

1. I had 155 bucks on my PS account and wanted to play a bigger than usual tourney
2. Bought into 55+R tourney (on the 35th minute) with a 45 minute re-buy and add-on period
3. Started with 1500 in chips, on minute 44 i had about 7K
4. I loose about 6.5K with top 2 on the flop to a straight, it happens, im not complaining about that
5.Since i didn't want to rebuy i go all-in on the last hand before the add-on break and I loose
6. Like an idiot i misclick rebuy instead of leave tourney
7. Now the add-on period started and i have 1500 in chips, even though i could have folded the last hand and add-on 3000 for 50 bucks
8. I decide that 1500 is a waste of money to play with when the average stack is over 7k
9. At this point i have 51 dollars left on my account, just enough to add-on 3000, I figured its all or nothing on this tourney, so i made the decision to add-on
10. I click the cashier and click the first button, OK to confirm
11. I see I only have 3000 in chips and not 4500
12. Turns out the add-on period did not start yet because not all hands were finished, so I just re-bought a second time and wasted all my money
Disagree \
13. Now i have 3k in chips, and I am in place 104 out of 111
14. Nothing to do but give it my best and try to cash, 18th place gets 450 dollars, not too shabby
15. I play well and build and my stack to over 30K
16. 20 people remain and blinds are 1.5/3K
17. I raise to 7K from the button with AQ, BB calls, nothing for me on the flop
18. I do a continuation bet of 10.5K, get raised all-in and I FOLD
19. No I have less than 15K and 19 people remain
20. A pass on some garbage hands and blinds eat half my stack.
21. On the button I go all-in with AQ again keeping in mind that I have 7K and the next smallest stack is 17K, same BB calls me with 93 off.
22. Obviously he wins
23. I've lost bigger amounts of money before but I dont think I ever got this angry, scared the crap out of my girlfriend by dropping F bombs at the top of my lungs.

Its ok though, sh*t happens, I am going to take a couple of days off and play some EPT GrandFinal qualifiers on Sunday, hope I do better Cool

Playing a 55 bucks rebuy tourney with just 155 bucks at that room isn't a small mistake in my book. That was clearly gamboool. But points 21. and 22. i know sooo well. 93o, nice hand. Evil

Well in reality my bankroll is a bit bigger than 155, i just prefer to keep it at the bank, just in case you know.

Well to be honest i stopped reading the post after this part :

1. I had 155 bucks on my PS account and wanted to play a bigger than usual tourney
2. Bought into 55+R tourney

Why on earth buying with such a high buy in Smile

Bankrollmanagement is overated anyway.....

It´s ok to try a 55$ tourney without brm, but why die you play a rebuy? A freezeout was the better option for this risky game and there did you have the same chance like the other players.

DaCapo71 is right, better to play a freezeout than a rebuy tournament, it will not hurt your bankroll very much and sometimes it is good to try out a high buy-in tournament. Smile

Play out of bank is not a small mistake is the biggest mistake you can do. No other one can be worst. Once you do this all the other mistakes don´t really matter.

If we want to play a big MTT we must choose one that don´t hurt our bank as like the one you chose did.

Bankroll management is the first thing we must learn.

And I thought my BRM was bad lol.

Major mistake, pretty obvious, you know yourself.

Sickener to lose like you did - 93off.....what the flying f**k

When did that become a good hand?

I have to say my heart goes out to you. Online is so easy to hit the wrong button. I did it the other night, but my loss was merely 20k in chips that I should have won when I hit the fold button by mistake.

Part of me wishes I had the courage to expand my Bank Roll Management to spend a little more to win (or lose) a little more. Some might say that is wise!

As for rebuys...... I did a similar thing when the re buy period was still running but it only cost me a few points rather than $100.

Anyway....MAJOR mistakes make you sicker than minor ones and yours was MAJOR.

Good look in the EPT qualifiers. Watch out for low flying 93os's.

Personally anyone can do what they choose with their money / BR, but I can't stand playing in Re- buys due to the reckless and ridiculous players I've came across. There's always someone who will go All-in constantly, Re-Buy and keep playing with this crazy technique until they hit a couple times in a row to double or triple up. It's a waste money in my eyes, but like I said to each their own.

Also, to play such a high buy-in doesn't seem practical, but if you would win it'd be great.

His real Bankroll at the his REAL BANK, he said. That's make sense for me, not make sense if player keep his/her account with more than $ 1000 at poker site !! even thousand or million like they play high stake ? Is that real ? on line gaming is possible close/shutdown suddenly .

When you had 30K, you already repair your fault for me. The next is ....yeah Sad Sad

That was one of the biggest mistakes you did, thats or sure...

I also see other players from time to time at higher limits that joins the table with their full bankroll Thumbs Down

so if you are saying that your bankroll is actually bigger than the mentioned 155, i guess all this yapping about bankroll management makes no sense. so what are you trying to say? i personally do not spot any small just gave it a go, got burned by a few con flips/ or just unlucky situations at the wrong time...that's just poker imo....good luck with the sat....

Damn what did you had in your mind =(
Anyways after the rebuy mistake if i was you with a 20k+ stack i would just sit quiet and wait for the 450$ with was already a win compared to losing all the money on a bankroll mistake.

unlucky buddy. couldv been an entirely different story if you had of just used your 'one time' lol.
no but seriously, i totally know why you took that shot. i often get the urge to play bigger than i should. the grind just sometimes gets a bit tedious.
i hope you do better on your next shot.
good luck Thumbs Up
