why am i so bad at poker

By: mikeyamr6 @ 15:51 (EDT) / 503 / Comment ( 9 )

i know this is a story of wow but i am absolutely rubbish at poker im the first to admit it.

i wouldn't mind if i was a beginner but iv been playing about 4 years and i still dont get it.

iv read poker books watched dvds followed coarses on the internet watched so many hours of the top players on the tv it hurts my eyes but im still a consistant loser you would have thought i should have improved by now but i play at the same standard that i played at after about 2 months of joining this site .I no about only playing premium hands playing in position etc etc but the 1 skill iv never been able to master is putting my opponents on a hand which is a skill i no i have to learn otherwise im virually playing blind but im just not able to do it .The only thing about being so bad is i only play micro stakes so over a 4 year period iv only lost about $400 long gone are the dreams of giving up my job to play poker full time or ever playing in the main event.i love playing but im sure you get more pleasure from the game if you are a consistant winner so someone out there please tell me where im going willing to take advice from phil ivey tom dwan daniel neg or phil hellmuth im really not fussy...
