      Hello, everyone

      I have been on Poker Stategedy(Betfred) for about one month.
      I tilted my starting Capital under $10 3 separate times.
      And managed to get it back to around $35.

      Betfred has a magic number tourny for all players achieving
      100 betfred points (1000 lbs).I have entered twice, last week I finished
      in 26th for aprox $10 and was pretty happy with that result.

      Yesterday was a different story, I played (very few hands) and
      managed to get to the final table.Then something odd happened
      and I started getting lucky:) I only lost one hand the whole tournament.

      The prize for finishing first $350

      I have learned to manage my tilt a little better but still have
      some Hellmuth type reactions.

      Now it's time to learn to crush nl 25-50

      First congratulations for your result.

      Just a note, don't go to NL50 unless you were consistenly winning on the lower stakes and you're confident that you can move up.

      I'm saying this because i had a similar experience, I was playing sss on FTP and managed to be breakeven-slightly losin and overall slightly winning after rakeback-bonuses on NL25. After a first place on a tourney and 250$ who took my BR to 400$ I decided to go up to NL50 without being a winner on NL25. There happen what was to be expected, doomswitch and back to 100$ in less than a week, a harsh lesson.

      So, bottom line, be very careful when deciding to move up limits since NL50 is where things starting to get somewhat serious so you must be confident you can beat it and be ready to move down if you see things aren't going your way.

      Good luck and congrats again ;)
