just wondering if anyone wanted to tell about there over-all profit ....I consider myself a mediocre player....usually start playing small tables with $30 dollars or so bankroll - get it up to a hundred or so..then before i know it...it is down to 0 again....
I would assume i am down a few hundred dollars over the last 2-3 years - not counting the free money that I got thru BRM...
Is this normal...at times i think its rigged...but i have come to the conclusion that it is just a game...and i need to play just for fun....penny ante poker
If I was down a few hundred I wouldn't really call myself a mediocre player. A mediocre player is some-one who has a small profit every month imo. I think you need to get the bankrollmanagment sorted out and force yourself to stick to your BRM strategy. If you are able to make a hundred out of 30$ means you understand the game, now the only thing you have to learn is managing the money and the profit will grow instead of getting lost. (try searching BRM strategy posts on this forum, I remember there were some really good ones posted a little while ago). Good luck in the future .

I can say that in the last 2 years i had profit of 350$ or something. I know it is not much, but i only play poker in some periods. The periods like vacations or when i do not have work. So my tactic is deposit and withdraw small profits 50$ or 45$ or 60$. something like that!

Since you consider yourself a mediocre player the most important thing for you is bankroll management, when u lose too much shift to lower limits. and above all you should have fun if you are unable to have profit. poker has ups and downs, so don't be disheartened by it.
