      Hi everyone. I am starting a blog mainly to prevent tilt and for self-analysis. I play at FTP. I currently play the $11+1 turbo SnGs. I use very conservative BRM (>100 BI).
      CURRENT BR:$1655.72

      this is the 2nd time in my poker "career" that I have gone on ubertilt. I started runing bad in SnGs and my emotions got the better of me. I completly disregarded BRM and started playing high stakes HU SnGs. I played 6 $550+20 HU tournies. I deserve to of lost my entire br($1750). Good play ensured that i did not go broke (for poker). My Current BR is $1790. I am going to take a break from poker. Any advice on how to prevent tilt would be appreciated. Atleast I think i earned 300SP today.
      :) the player at this limit ($585) are very fishy.

      ;) You should be glad that you won 3 and lost 3;) Just think about you would lose 4 and won only 2 ;)

      I am glad you are still with your BRM. Positive side- you'll get some rake back bonus ;) 0,27*120=32,4$ ;)

      BR @ FTP: $1600
      i decided to end my break b/c of a challenge by a poker playing friend of mine. He staked me $75 at party. If i bust i owe him $20. If I do well I owe him 30% up to $300. He knows i am a solid player so he had no problem staking me $75.
      MY question: I am mainly a SnG player. Which limit at party sould i start at? (please consider the unbelievabley high rake at the micros at party.)

      BR @ FTP: $1600
      $75 challenge at party (i played 14 $1 SnG)
      1- 3
      2- 1
      3- 0
      4- 6!!!!
      5- 0
      6- 0

      I HATE THE BUBBLE.
      BR @ party: about $75
      Question: The $1s at party are only turbo (3 min levels). Should I try the $ 3s (next lowest level) normal blind levels and go back to $1 if my BR goes below $50? I dislike turbos b/c there is greater varience.

      Hi and I guess welcome back to the world of poker then ;)

      Imo you should play cashtables or the 3$ buy-ins on party when I played there I busted my bankrool on 1$'s and had to rebuild it on the 3$'s everytime.
