      first I want to thank pokerstragie for a new insight in poker with it I managed to increase my 85 dollar to over 400 dollars. But then it went wrong and I lost nearly 100 dollars. with it I lost myself and didn't play acording the bankroll management and after a couple bad beats amd bad plays I lost it all in a couple of days. So I'm back to 20 dollars, playin the 1 dollar sng's.

      If anyone has any tips with might help me to not tilt or tilt not so much I would like to hear them. I mostly tilt after a badstreak not really in the sng self

      it will happen in time.You will develop a more "professional" look on your "bad beats", you'll start calling them standart variance. It will make you laugh when you suck out on someone, but you must be neutral when someone sucks out on you. It will be normal that the latter will happen more often, as if you are a good player, you will fold when your are behind anyway.
      If you manage to separate negative emotions from your play, you will be "tilt prone". And choosing a very conservative BRM helps a lot :tongue:

      There are no strict maximum on BRM. The importance is that it makes you fee comfortable. if you are, loosing money to a suckout or two shouldnt result in a tilt

      I did have some positive news. I did make it to silverstar and made it through the round 1 WSOP freeroll. So I will let you know if I manage to end high in the 20.000 freeroll saterday and maybe I even make it to the WSOP.

      well I did have a greater lose a couple of weeks a go. where I lost my bankroll of 500 euro that I won in live tournaments on the cashtables. I find it really hard to do bankrollmanagement live because you have to buy-in a minimum of 100 euros in the holland casinos. I haven't played live till then. but I did learn something from that which is that it not good idea to play against loose players with less than 6 players.

      He he... I am a gold stare and I also made it through a couple of those freerolls, that doesn't mean much. If you make it to WSOP through those turnements you must be either really luck and good or just luck. Just keep to BRM and learn to play better by all means and you could play in every WSOP from this year on.

      Good luck!

      I know my odds of winning the freeroll are very low but it is for free and it an ambition to ones play at a large tournament especially the world series. Even if I dont come in the money I think it will be great to be part of it. So I hope I get really really really lucky :D

      about the freeroll you're right you can't could on it but then again it is for free and it can really boost ones stack.

      but for the rest I try not to get on tilt after an badstreak and keep to my bankrollmanagement like I normally do.

      making a little profit at the moment with the 1 dollar sng's. Will keep you posted on my progress
