      probably missclick, but the fact that i dont remember it indicates that it might have been in a moment of serious tilt

      Well not that bad, the epic tripple post was due to using my phone, to check on the forum, while being on a wedding (NERD)

      Just noticed that you're a hand-judge now. Congratulations, I know you've already helped me and I'm sure a lot of others... when I actually start playing again, i look forward to you reviewing my hands.

      Hey, thanks for the good words Ramble :)
      You reminded me that I had a blog :f_biggrin: ...
      Why do you not play at the current, did FullTilt saga affect you as well?
      I neglected my blog for that reason until now(started to rebuild my BR on stars). Whish you to return at the tables soon and good luck :)

      I was playing SnG's almost exclusively for the past couple of years and can beat the $2 games consistently, but when I move to the $5 games, I become a break-even (to slightly losing) player.

      After months of this, without being able to find where I needed to adjust, I was getting very frustrated and decided to take a week off and come at it fresh... but then a week turned into several weeks, then a couple of months and then just when I was thinking about getting into it again, the FullTilt thing happened...

      I decided that to ease back into the game, I would spend a week or two just re-visiting the articles/videos and reviewing hands in the forums before I start playing again...

      Party. So-so traffic. Plenty of drooling fish but permanent doomswitch active for new players, as you can see:

      Thanks for the info - iv've seen the graph and the ugly gap between red and green :f_o:

      Well today was a pretty funny day for me - pokerstars send me money for qualifing in the battle of planets, and also let me know that they cut my tracking to pokerstrategy, because I previously had an account that I used for watching live training, back when I was still playing on FT. So it really seems like I have to find another site in order to be able to watch videos and post hands, which is like the most important thing to me if I want to develop as a poker player..
      So yeah... fml :)

      But maybe playing on stars without being able to achieve supernova probably isn;t the best decision anyway...

      Haven't updated updated this for a while but I thing this is worth it - I succeeded in dropping 30BI for one day (Personal record)..This would result in my taking a break for a while and moving down in stakes...

      Thanks for the encouraging words.
      Actually today was a day proving that whining and complaining accomplishes nothing. After waking up and deciding that I would play a bit on the lower limit I was able to recover more than the half I lost yesterday(playing on lower limit and only 51 tourneys - basically ran like a god).
      So overall wrap up of the weekend - I am down a bit but a good mental lesson.
      Will keep working - I would count on the results to follow :)
