      Maybe its time to consider the possibility that you might be a fish yourself?

      buy into a $20 Turbo MTT, those are really low variance, there's like no way u wont have a big cash.

      You either put in intense volume, or haven't really been playing micros.

      If you're playing micros, that's 1500 big blinds you need to lose to get to $20. With proper bankroll management and reading the strategy articles, I can guarantee it won't happen.

      To be honest, the tourneys you want - you mean the ones with huge entry cost and a big field? There are $1.10 that have the same number of players, etc. The only difference is that you lose money far less quickly.

      1.) Read all the bronze articles you can
      2.) Play SSS on NL FR 0.01/0.02 or FL FR 0.01/0.02
      3.) Play a max of 2 tables
      4.) Review your hands (in the hand discussion board) and watch strategy videos.

      If you do all four steps, PokerStrategy has proven that anyone can win money playing like this.

      Everybody will eventually run worse than they thought was possible. The difference between a winner and a loser is that the latter thinks they do not deserve it. (Irieguy)

      I've heard two schools of thought;
      1. Bad beats are a good players friend.
      2. If bad beats are the only way you're losing, you're playing too tight.

      It seems odd that you claim to crush the micros yet need to read the basic articles. Not for me to judge however.
      For you, I suggest you ignore the latter comletely. I've owned nl4 full ring for some timenow and I play around vpip10 pfr7 most days.
      As suggested above, don't try to play 500 tables at once; play 1 until you get all the strategy down and feel really comfortable, then add one at a time, but only after a very large sample.
