      ...or the variance will get you eventually.

      thats what i have read everywhere.. but hey, i thought that if I play well i cant get more than 2-3-4 bad beats in a row. that i cant tilt.

      duh
      i was wrong obviously :s_mad:

      now im quite X_X with my bankroll, starting from the scraps because i tried to play NL25 without enough money and lost some 10 BI with it.
      it was only like.. 1k hands so its more like A LOT of bad beat in a little amount of time. not exactly a downswing, so sorry if this whine is pissing you off.. i get its bad brm and varience but whining does help me , so lets leave it.. please?

      some parts were bad play because of tilt.. i cant even blame anyone but myself.. on a normal day i wouldnt do such moves.. some are just plain bad luck..

      is there a allin ev filter for elephant? if so where?
      i had reads on some guys but they still hit their outs.

      some bad parts are:

      i still have my 20 dollars left.. so im not going anywhere obv. but from now on ill REMEMBER to stick to BRM

      maybe its a classical lesson but it helped me clear some things in my head.. hope its helpful for somebody else so he does NOT have to endure this shit.

      im off to put together a 1000 piece puzzle or read a book.. some time and tilt destroying activity anyways. :s_frown:

      with 20 dollars you cannot play cash game 1c/ 2c properly bankrolled, nor 5c.10c limit

      you can play only 50c (or under) sng if you have something like that

      you can always rebuy to whatever level you want to play in the future.


      my ambition is to reach 100 buy in in cash game , what pros do

      which is reasonable knowing what variance is in this online sh ** and giving multi table habit ( i couldnt play a single table online)

      Fixed Limit is a possibility ;)

      But you can always try NL2 BSS with 10 BI, the opponents are bad so that you could maybe build a roll :D

      Yeah man BRM is important.

      I am down 11BI on my limit. Its just like 30% of my BR, so not that big of a deal so far.

      play is so bad at NL2, that 10BIs will be plenty.
      Nobody asked what your ambition is.

      You're right that the play is pretty bad, but that's not the quite the point of BRM.

      It's not to protect you from good play from your opponents, but from a bad run of luck. Nothing can prevent your monster hands being cracked ten times in a row - just ask Annakurnikowa - so 10BI is really not enough, imho.
