      four times got 50 bux from pokerstrategy all times got broke. After every broke I read everything possible from pokerstrategy about poker and then with more cofidence try to play again, but after forth downswing everything started to look worthless and unbeatable. I now I am not first like this. But maybe anyone can give advice how to find intrest in poker again?

      Play at stakes that dont mean anything to you and enjoy playing rather than wining $$$?

      But the fact you are a gold member and busted your $50 would maybe suggest you BRM isnt good? Because if you followed BRM you wouldnt be a gold member with a BR of $50.

      For motivation, watch some Poker on TV (HSP, PAD) which you can find on Youtube. Watch some online pros fight it out, then you wish you had the money they throw away and go back to grinding.


      If you followed bankroll management, read all the articles, then:

      1.) Play less tables (should be obvious)
      2.) Put a stop loss limit (also BRM)
      3.) Play in freerolls (what can I say?)

      If all else fails, get another $50 - I don't know how you do it, but it seems you do.

      have you guys thought even pokerstrategy might be a daughter company of these online poker sites just to make us believe we can still win with proper strategy and coin all fucking terms like BRM and downstings etc just to blind our mind?

      moreover they are all located in the same fucking territory, and encourage us to play.

      Could be. After my first bankroll I got a bankroll at 888 and William Hill. I also got twice a free bankroll from PartyPoker (where I also received the PokerStrategy bankroll), but they were both less than $50. I also got a free $50 from another site on Full Tilt. So yeah, he could definitely have had 4 free bank rolls.

      Watch 9:42-10:42... i was giggling uncontrollably by this point...

      I love that this guy is so "poker is rigged", yet continues to play and take the time to make these videos.... I almost wish I played on stars just so I could look this guy up and scream "SCAM" every time 2 players see a showdown.
