Attempting to make a bankroll from scratch.


0 for 3

3 tournaments today. 3 completely card dead experiences. My two best hands today were as follows.....AhTh, and JJ. Both I got knocked out with. The first was with top pair against a set of 3s, the second was when a guy raised with QTo....UTG. I managed to scrape out a 180th place in the first one. Then followed that up with 700 something and 900 something. I was feeling so confident after the first day when I had 7th and 10th place finishes. I'm in the process of losing it now. I haven't come close to being ITM since then. I'm just very frustrated right now. I'm back to not getting any good hands, and on the rare occasion that I do get one, it doesn't improve. I'll be close to out of the top 200 after today. I played a bunch of freerolls today too. Did well in razz but then lost half my stack when I had 742A on 4th and bricked out to someone showing a K and another showing a pair....4-betting every street. Sigh. I'm playing in a stud freeroll right now...and it's going pretty well so far. We'll see if that lasts. Update: I busted in 225th in the stud freeroll. Sigh. The last 5-6 hands I played, I suffered bad beats. Lost ace high flush vs. ace high flush, queens up on fourth street, lost to rivered full house, pocket kings and calling station kept calling and hit four running cards to make a straight, and the list goes on.
