      For the past 2-3 weeks my bankroll stuck at around $100 with over 300 FPP on Pokerstars.com. Play 1-2 hours max a day (sometimes dont play at all). Played cash games and tour $0.25. My return on cash games like zig zag. Win lose win lose win lose...Have another 1 month to reach 500 FPP before Pstartegy take back their initial $50 bankroll.

      Any articles that i should read more or any motivation articles?

      Or can i ask for extention for 2 more months? :)

      kinda hard when you bust in 3/5 SNG with AA vs crap hands like Q-10 or 8-J

      I lose my AA 4 times so far - all in preflop to lower funking hand QQ, QK, A5 and 89.

      SB: 89 raise to $1.25
      BB: AA all in with $5

      SB won with straight!!!

      the 8-j also made a straight on the flop. (i limped in because he would fold 100% sure if i made a bet and didn't want to win just 1 bb with AA since it was still very early and everyone deepstacked). so i couldn't have folded it.. just bad luck

      with Q-10 same thing.. i was BB everyone folded before me exept sb so i didn't want to bluff him out of pot but also not limp and then get a bad beat. i decide to raise 3x BB the normal amount for blind steals. thinking i would have to be really unlucky to lose again on the flop.

      J-K-A on flop

      he moves all in. i had this feeling and was thinking he could have Q-10 and i would be beat. on the other hand, after that horrible bad beat last time i thought i couldn't have that much bad luck -.- Im just not a good enough player that i can fold Trips aces on the flop. I was praying he would have an A-K or K-J or an J-Q which were all possiblities since he just called my bet. I would still have 7 outs if he did have Q-10. unfortunately i didn't hit them ofcourse.
