The Englishmans Journey into Poker

Well with christmas and the joys of christmas shopping I havent played much at all recently I have still been able to nuke my money down to the last few dollars. I didnt start with a lot at all I think my first deposit was the minimum you can put in on stars, and the most its ever been at was around $80.

I think playing cash just isnt for me I cant sit there clicking fold around 80% of the time it does get boring doesnt it? And when im bored I play really badly hence the lack of money in my account. Any suggestions how I can combat the boredom with out losing my attention on the table? (at the moment I do not multi table and I am playing full ring)

Also I am playing micro stakes and it kinda feels pointless because after say 3-4 hours you mite be a dollar up or down? What was the point? And when I do hit the boredom window AQ suddendly looks like the nuts its like a strange kind of tilt forcing things to happen almost. Which is strange because I dont normally tilt at all and I can normally walk away if I feel some nerd rage.

So how can I combat boredom in a cash game?

Should I just stick to the mtts and the odd sit and go?

Do I just uninstall stars from my pc?

I know im going to have deposit again which isnt great or the altenative is stop playing which I am thinking about, mite be a case of 'sticking to the day job'


I need some guidance guys
