      Hi all,
      My name is Chris I am 23, and I have been a poker playing college student for the last 4 years. During this time I have played on fulltilt and pokerstars. I prefer pokerstars because of the number of donkies, and unfortunately until I joined this site and really started to study poker, I too was one of them.
      I am still guilty of a few donkey crimes, but as I constantly learn more about both myself and the game, I hope to eliminate these. I play on pokerstars under the alias dville23. The most common game you can find me playig is either the $6.50, or $10 sng hu tourneys, although occasionally I will play the large mtts and sng in the micro range.
      My goals for poker are as follows:

      -Eliminate more mistakes from my play
      -Build bankroll to $500, then $1000.
      -Dont let the bad beats and cold decks force me into bad plays and losing money by tilting.

      This last one is what has killed me before, If I lose several tournaments in a row and take a hit to my br, then I used to try to move up and recoup my losses by playing out of my means, but the key to fixing a problem is knowing there is one to fix in the first place.

      I look forward to continuing to read and learn what I need to do to take my poker playing to the next level.

      I will attempt to add a graph to this post, but I am not sure how to do it. If anyone can tell me the best way, it would be most appreciated.

      First of all, wellcome.

      In relation to your question, you can download elephant here at PokerStrategy, you can download PT3 trial version that runs for 60 days or You can search yourself on sharkscope. Just save the image by right clicking in them and post them here. (any problems i can put your sharkscope image here)

      Thank you,
      This site certaintly has both great tools and a the best community I have ever come across.

      I currently use pokertracker 3, when you say just post them here, how can I do that. The only option I see for adding graphs is for the http, but when I added the http address of my sharkscope it did not work, and I tried just copy and paste, that did not seem to work either.

      Thanks again

      Chris

      humm... I see your problem is just posting the picture not having one. Just put them in a picture server like imageshack. You can upload for free and then they give a lot of links, some html, direct link to page etc. I personally use "forum Thumbnail". And post the link they give directly here! You can try posting the different links and pressing "preview" before posting just to see what your post will look like!!

      Thanks again for your help VirtuaGod.
      Here is my graph, I hope to even out the downswings and hopefully with more discipline the line will move further and further to the top right!!!




      If anyone has any suggestions for articles they found to be more helpful than others for not tilting and just improving their game on the whole, I would be most appreciative.

      Thanks again.
