How Could It Happen?

By: Panoken @ 17:40 (EST) / 376 / Comment ( 1 )

It has been really long since my last post and there are many reasons for that. Some bad and some good, but mosly bad...

It started with a super tilt at the zoom tables. Playing 8 tables at the same time, for a long time. I was at a bankroll peak at $95, feeling on top of the world. I thought I could win every pot, ending up making horrible hero-calls. Tilted as I was I kept on playing thinking that it was just bad luck, I mean I almost dubbled my bankroll since the beggining of the challenge. 

Time went on and I got tired, stopped playing and had a look in my cashier. A petite $47 was left, a loss of 24 buy-ins and micro millions was just starting. I felt empty. How could it happen? 

I took a break from poker and fixed some personal stuff but when the micro millions events took place I felt like I had my chance of getting back on track. Stupid as I was, I decided that I had to play some big tournmanets to be able to win back my money. I sat down in two $8.80 tournaments and was knocked out within 30 minutes in both. I could not believe it. The first time in my poker "career" I had a bankroll lower than my deposit. This was the first time I  had lost money. I felt sick, still feel sick. 

Maybe zoom is not for me, I thought. Instead I went on playing some STT. After about 200 of those I was break-even. Well then I tried some Hyper-turbo STT satellites and now I am down to $20. How could it happen? I went from a profiting/break-even player to a complete fish in a matter of a month. Today I have decided to not play poker until next year. Maybe I will play some freerolls, I have actually qualified for the next Big Bang. That will be my last chance to make up for this mess. I know deep inside that I love poker, but just not right now. I will be back, stronger and smarter.
