      Wotcher, my new poker buddies!

      Firstly, let me say thank you for staking me $50 on Cake Poker. Now, I am playing NL10 using your Short Stack Strategy.

      However, I regret to say that I have already lost nearly half of it, so much so that soon I shall have to go down to NL4. I think I am playing the system correctly. It's just that when I win, I only win the blinds, because everybody else folds when I bet. And when I lose, I lose a lot. For example, in my last session, I went all-in with AA and lost to Q9. I guess that's what's called a bad beat in the vernacular.

      Anyway, any suggestions would be gratefully received.

      Yours, Pete (CyberSmudger)

      Hey CyberSmudger,

      My suggestions would be to read the articles once more. If you "think" you know it, there is something to get better at. Also read all psycological articles you have access to.

      Winning the blinds are good. Dont focus on the result of each individual hand, but try to look at longterm results instead. Poker is longterm.

      Good luck,
