      Firstly when I was playing my capital wasn't stable.

      From 35$ to 60$.

      When i had 75$ I was happy.

      I managed pourly my bankrol... And I was so unlucky, I went all in with top 2 pair, and the oponent got his low pair 3 of a kind on the river.
      And now I have 60cts.

      I cannot play anywhere....

      Can anyone help me ? At Titan poker who could borrow me 1 $ ?

      I would repay you back 1.05 after few days.

      PM me if you can help.

      Play 10c sngs...better idea is of course depositing 50bi for limit you're playing at.

      BTW, that's not a downswing it's just gambling in it's pure form :D What limits were you playing that you lost 50,60$ in one pot? Think about it.

      GL man :)

      You lost you entire bankroll on one pot?

      [ ] Downswing
      [x] Bankroll management

      Not much you can do now. You can try to gamble some more on microlimits or take a shot at some cheap tournament... with 0.60$ it's more about luck than knowledge anyway.

      But before you invest anymore money, read this article: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/strategy/fixed-limit/250/ and read it a few times. It's for fixed limit, but you will get the general idea why your "big downswing" happened. Your next stop should be the entire bronze No Limit section as you are clearly played way above your limits.

      WRONG!

      [ ] BRM :P .

      No mercy for gamblers! Just deposit lol. I think this thread should be closed since begging for money isn't allowed on our forums and this certainly isn't a downswing. Wanna see a downswing?



      Now spare us...
