So that happened

By: Christxof @ 09:58 (EDT) / 3 / Comment ( 2 )

Well, everything seemed hunky-dory at first. Played a $1.10 Hyper-Turbo MTT, managed 2nd place for $88. My biggest online cash yet! I was on my way to rebuilding my bankroll!

Most of that prize money is gone now.

What happened to it? What went wrong? It's all because of cash games. Kept playing at the 5c/10c ZOOM level specifically to compete in Pyramid challenges, did well one day, then lost over $70 total during the next three days.

I know that at least $20 of my losses were because of tilt, but that can't be the only reason. There had to be a better reason as to why I kept losing over and over. So that's why, starting today, I'm going to be looking over the hands I played and submitting key ones to the forums for review. I need to figure out what I was doing wrong.

Hopefully I'll get answers before I lose what money I had left.
