      Hello,

      I play poker for already some years playmoney and with friends. Since Juli I play poker with money the $50 of pokerstrategy. First I played NL2 SH and I thought it was pure gambling. (Now I know I was bad) when I had only $20 and I thought I am losing here so I try something different. I played the $1 DoN and build my bankroll to $60. In my opinion this games were very boring so I studied NL full ring I played long Breakeven but the time came that I beat it. At $150 I played NL5 only for 3 weeks or something because I beat it for 20BB/100 hands. When I had $275 I went to NL10 it went good and build my BR to $410 I thought it was so easy so I moved to NL10 fast tables min 50BB BI and played Breakeven but then after some weeks I had lost some money and was back at $300. I remember I played much SnG with playmoney so I thought I play the 3.40 normal SnG. And the first days were going great. But It looks like the results are everyday worser and worser?

      I have no Idea what I do wrong I know al Basic, bronze and silver SnG articles I train at ICM and get scores of 85-90%. I post hands at the forum about my push and fold fase and people say I do the right action. I have also seen all 3.40 SnG video's even the german videos. I have no idea what I do wrong or is this just variance? And the strange thing is I see that my opponents make so many misstakes and still I can't beat them.
      I played now 150 SnG with -ROI and if I look at the forums people can beat this stakes for 40% ROI.
