      And why is this thread named Pokerstars is Jokerstars?

      If you can help yourself losing money on cg's for which you are under bankrolled (and probably under skilled) it will eventually happen with tourneys also.
      So if you don't want to do what our distinguished diamond member said - then just quit!

      p.s you should use your 5th post for hand evaluation board or to ask Jared Tendler a question about your problem (or gamblers anonymus)

      Wow tbh from the lack of knowledge about poker I see in that post I wouldn't be surprised if the entire story is mostly made up. But who knows u may have luckboxed a few tournaments. Losing 4k on cash games if u were previously playing 3.75 tournaments means u jumped in stakes HUGE. I mean if u r playing 3 dollar tournaments thats like an equivalent of NL4. And to lose 4k on NL4 u would have to be retarded. So u must have played NL50+ which means u were just silly enough to think winning 1 micro tournament makes u good enough to win at that limit. Keep playing, learn BRM, learn about variance, learn about tilt control, then play and play and play and maybe some day u make some money from poker, and then keep it. Gl with that. Oh also saying what your CASH OU RATIO in tournaments (non existing term) is was very funny :)

      Join the BSS beginners course it will probably help your game and help to stop you from going broke, also study the articles on bankroll management it will help you to choose the correct limits to play at. Hope this will help you.

      Luckbox another tournament, set limits on cash games play to NL2. You can't lose that much.
