      So I played 2600 raked hands on the .10/.20 and I'm still break even.

      I do have to admit that I wasnt paying much attention to the bankroll management at first (shame on me!)
      I played some Step tournaments, so thats like $12 lost overthere.
      I managed to get down to $27 or something in that range and then I switched to .5/1 tables (shame even harder!).
      Overthere I grinded it back up to over $100 but offcorse the downswing followed aswell, went back to $40 and then I started at .10/.20, and staying there till I have $90 now! (finaly learned!)

      But after playing a week now at .10/.20, around 4 hours a day 4tabling, I'm only at $50. I don't think I'm playing that bad at all, is it possible that it just moves up this slow, that I have bad luck or that I just overestimate myself as a pokerplayer?

      How are the other bronze members doing?
      I'm playing full ring limit hold'em btw.

      Just give it time. The only thing you can do to make the process faster is improving your skill by posting sample hands and reading the articles/books. On the german forum there are a lot of (good) players who complain about being breakeven after 50k hands. So just dont worry.

      Ok thanks :)
      I've read it all and even reread it. Now I started posting hands and replying on others posted hands, I hope I'll improve by it (and offcorse hope to be able to use it in my game)
