      Its most likely that you have massive leaks in your game

      So whats happening is you are winning a $2 pot with your AA
      Then you are limping/playing too loose/bluffing in bad spots. Thats slowly taking away that $2 back to break even.

      Then you shove QQ into a AA in later position and are now $2 down.

      microstakes are horrible. moving up sometimes makes a lot of sense.

      ? makes no sense , if you cant beat the micro's wot chance have got at a higher limit ?.plug your leaks on the level your playing at and when you can beat that limit move up .THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE.

      Its funny that this discussion is in process.
      I also play many tourneys on Party Poker and have come to the conclusion that when playing a solid poker game (my understanding of a solid game by way of Pokerstrategy) on the micros, I usually get my premium hands beaten by weird callers or lets just say Maniacs, and I often have been facing bad beats since about 3 weeks consistenly by always being ahead of the caller but sucking out on the turn or river. But when I play 11$ tourneys and above, I often tend to have better results with my (so-called) solid game. I have managed to stay ahead of my investment, THANK GOODNESS, I do understand that on the Micro tourneys, one has to really be prepared to face some terrible players and get unlucky, when facing them when holding , for instance, the NUTS on the flop, etc..
      I don't want to start playing like those dopes who get lucky and build up huge stacks, only to lose them before making it past the bubble.. Here is a little insight on my gaming. I'm very interested in opinions...

      people jam in micro mtts with Q3 and J5 cause they are stupid
      people jam in mid mtts with Q3 and J5 cause they understand fe and ranges
