      Since I started the only thing I won by myself was 10€ with SSS... Now I'm playing BSS on NL10 thanks to TAF and the summer bonus, but I really don't deserve the $410 I have....

      Since I started with BSS I lost $20, but I don't blame bad beats, it's just that it seems I have infinite leaks on my game. I post hands, I watch videos and read the strategies but I just keep having leaks, and day after day I discover a new one :\. It's really disappointing, I can't keep going like this or I'll lose every single dollar I have...

      Sorry, I just needed to share this...

      I guess you are on a good way to improve your game if you recognize your leaks by yourself. that's the hardest part. In the early times of your poker career you shouldn't be disappointed by finding new leaks because it's actually one of the best things to happen. nobody was born as a perfect player ...

      I'd rather quit poker than moving to FL, thanks for you tip though :P

      Yeah well I guess it's just part of it, I'll keep working and that's the most important thing as a beginner.

      As mentioned earlier finding leaks in his own game is very important since that is the only way to improve it. I've got to fight with my high PP for example, my c-bets and 2nd barrels on the turn and soo many other things.
      Imo the best way to improve it is to read the articles, post sample hands and to start at the lowest limit possible and just learn to play the standard poker.
