do it for fun
I decided a couple weeks ago to give the online poker thing a shot. so i deposited $50. Sat down at the .10/.20 tables on prima and worked that 50 up to 120 in about 2 or 3 days.
2 days later, back to 40 dollars.
I played the 2.5K tourney on prima for a $25 buy in.
24 left i'm middle of the road.Dealt AA mid position, one guy already all in, chip leader pushes with 6k of chips, I call with my 3000.AA v AQflop brings K 10 9Turn brings a dirty J and I'm gone.First time I get aces in a month...the joys of it...
Online was good to me at the start, cos I was doing it for fun. When I decided to give it a shot and go normal bankroll rules, i've been losing my bollox. Ok, so i've lost about 50 quid, but my first deposit before xmas was only 20 euro and it did me for almost 5 months.
I'm wondering now whether to take a break completley from online and go back to the live freerolls and winning tickets, or stick at it online hoping that the bad run will pass.
I signed up to Full tilt last week. What a terrible site. All i remember is someone calling my all in with 10 10 with 88. there were two overcards on the table. She caught an 8 on the turn. Frstrating enough as it is getting outdrawn, when she proceeded to write, "i'm really getting better at this game" in the chat box, i nearly threw my laptop against the wall.
So i've figured.
Fun = results + enjoyable games.
Bankroll rules etc = more stress, not as enjoyable, general pain in the hole.
