      Goodevening,

      My name is Rik.

      I'm not realy new, because i was active on the dutch forum for lets say 8 a 9 months.

      The reason that i'm not active anymore, since 2day is that i dont like it there anymore, or maybe also they dont like me anymore.

      i played for a while fullring cashgames and i beat NL10 FR on a big sample.

      After that i started playing on NL5 SH and moved up to NL10 which i also beat over a big sample.

      In the months from Januarie i went a lot of times broke, and invested a lot of money, a couple of times i had a hot run and i was thinking i was beating NL25/NL50 etc.. so when i was broke i just trow another couple of hunderd euro's online and started again on NL50 or so...


      Why i swapped to the english forum...

      The people on the dutch forum think i'm a joke or something i think, because i went so much broke and lie to them and myself over my poker prestations.

      therefore i'm gonna try to start over here, bye reading blogs and discuss and maybe i wil start a blog in the furture if i start over whit a new bankroll, but first i need to know a good way to start over whit less chance to tilt.


      Sorry for my english btw, its not very good, although i understand everything :)

      well, you know but i'm going to say it anyway... bankroll management

      you just have to be honest with yourself when you can't go on. i've moved down nl5->nl2 and nl25->nl10 before, now i've moved up nl25->nl50 which is not going so well (but not THAT horrible either) and let's see how that goes

      Welcome to the English community, Rik!

      You know, I think it doesn't matter which community you post in because everyday is a new day and you can start with a clean slate and start making better decisions. If you think users think you're a joke or don't like you, then be it. Does everyone have to like you? Do you even care?

      Turn negative energies into positive and make it the main drive to succeed in poker.

      Perfecting your game will take time, in fact it will probably last for a very long time to come because poker is something that will always be a forever evolving thing. Everyday something new pops up and you simply have to keep your head up high and study study study. Patience is also key here next to BRM.

      Good luck!
      Ingrid

      hello Rik.

      You already sound like you play a solid game.

      As Ingrid mentioned BRM and patience are key. You must be willing to drop a level to protect your BR and to regain confidence even if you think it's just negative variance.

      Maybe you should read some of Jared Tendlar's excellent articles on the mental side of the game, in particular dealing with tilt and negative variance.

      Anyway I think the Dutch forums loss is our gain and I for one will be following your blog with interest.

      Also remember when well known pros disappear for a while, it's often because they have gone broke and are trying to get another BR together, so going broke is something that happens to players on all levels.

      Proper BRM is the only way to alleviate that risk.

      Again welcome and good luck

      Lazza
