      No, your not. Incredible poker players don't get frustrated cos they cant beat the micro's and donk off their roll ;)

      Every poker game, at every limit, is 100% beatable. If you really want to learn to play poker and not just be a degen gambler, maybe you should sign up for one of those online sites that offers coaching and strategy articles... if only one of those existed which had in depth articles on sng's, BSS, SSS and more...

      OH WAIT, IT'S CALLED POKERSTRATEGY.COM! MAYBE, YOU SHOULD READ SOME OF THE ARTICLES/WATCH SOME VIDEO'S/ATTEND A COACHING/HAVE A LOVE CHILD WITH GRAILER!

      Ahem...

      If you want to learn to be a better poker player, I have one piece of advice for you. Edit your first post, take out the bit saying that your "an incredible poker player" because if you were, you wouldn't be trying to scrounge a roll for the micros. BRM, tilt control and emotional stability are all as equally important to a poker players skillset as knowing what hands to play or how to bet them.

      Unless this is a level by ihufa, in which case, keep on grinding my son ;)

      Hello!

      You can try going to pokerstars and turn on the limit protection - you can only play games until a set limit that you make. To turn it off, it takes 24 hours. So you will be forced to follow bankroll management :) . Other than that, you could try reading some of our psichology articles in the strategy section of the site or go through the psychology and self management forums (where I moved this topic). If that doesn't work, you will learn to follow the bankroll management when you lose too much by gambling ;) . But I believe in you as by posting here, you have already shown the will to stop gambling, so good luck with that!

      P. s. It would be really nice if you stopped writing in caps lock... :) .

      Best regards,

      Primzi

      And I offered you help... everything you need to build a bankroll and not blow it is available on this site. moreso as your crazy shot taking has gotten you to silver status.

      No. Phil Helmuth plays best against large donkament fields, where folding QQ to a 3bet is seen as an incredible skill. Check out his 'impressive' performance against pro's on High Stakes Poker ;)

      Awesome! You managed to get your money in as an approx 2:1 favorite. keep doing this over and over and watch the money flow :D

      As has been suggested above, stars does have the ability to restrict what games you can play. However, even doing that wont help if you can't develop the dicipline to play at a certain limit. At the end of the day, your goal should be to take the ego out of the game and play whatever limit your rolled for. who cares if 100BB is only $10? download HEM (or PS.com elephant) and set it to only display your results in bb's. poker is the hardest way to make an easy living, so dont focus on the money aspect for now, focus on improving your game and take it from there.

      You are playing against a bunch of loose players who play anything that is suited/face card. If you try to play fancy in micro stakes you are going to get burnt majority of the time.

      Best just to play ABC poker in micro... or close to it.

      AKA

      Bluff with position when there are no bets, Raise/bet with good hands, fold weak hands and play tight. Plus new players (lots of them in micro stakes) make big bets when they get excited (ie hit a big hand) and that is when you fold.

      Paying attention to very loose/very aggressive players in micro limit usually pays off too.

      :f_grin:

      AlCaTrAzzALZ a; though i didnt like your first comment you do seem to understand it better then me and i appreciate your input... and if i can fix this one area were i dont jump up limits to ealry i will be a better player i suppose maybe this is not a poker issue but more a gambling issue but im finding it impossible to play to stakes my bank allows





      and wan thing i do not like phil hellmuth nor would i respect him as a person but he is theoreticaly the best tournement player in the world and as far his stunt on high stakes poker that was unlucky he lost 2 key pots athe first pot he had a king high flush hard to get away from and the 2nd pot he had a stright and flush draw so im not saying i like phil hellmuth but he does have to be considered as a good player
