bankroll ballooned and then deflated again

By: jzzcoman @ 12:33 (EST) / 1 / Comment ( 1 )
the 30 dollars i won in september in pso, ballooned to 119.00 at one time, before deflating again, and now i have only 2.11 in my pokerstars account. Nonetheless, i learned alot, and am  optimistic about learning more, and improving my game more and more...... i really had some extraordinary bad luck to have my bankroll deflate like that, and that shouldn't happen all that often. my big bad luck was when i was in a 3.30 tour with about 1500 entrants(i think), and there was only 90 players left, and i had amazing run of luck and found myself in 2nd out of the remaining 90... i was like 'wow', i am on a roll this time; but i blew it and was out in 86th position. i reason that that was my chance to make my bankroll balloon, but i blew it. nobodys fault but my own. i played an AK aggressively and lost to a guy who played his K10 loosely, and k10 showed on the flop giving him two pair........(i should have just folded that ak i figure afterwards...because i was in 2nd place), and shortly afterwards i went out..... but to be honest, i believe i should have been able to easily make it into the top 30 in that tour, and often times, with a stack like that, i should be able to final table it. so, it was in that tour, that i lost my bankrolll i figure...... because it was that tour where i needed to win, in order to make up for some of the losses, and to make huge profit by final tabling it... but i am still learning, and i'll do this again, but some day, i'll be at the final table, and making 100's or thousands'........ i am optimistic...
so, my 30 bucks is now 2.11...
