Is the glass half empty or half full?

So you played 300+ games this year and lost less than $20 bucks! It's not a complete disaster!

If you filtered out the results to show the last 100 games played only it would make a pretty looking graph.

Always remain positive and optimistic! Keep working on your game.

Learning poker is a lifelong lesson!

If you are unable to top off you should definitely not step up. If you are any good at STT I would aim for $60 then play $1.50 STT. But if you get down to $40 stop and go back to45 man games

Holdem this is frustrating but ask yourself are you improving? What are you doing to improve. This site has many resources to help you do that. Are you taking advantage of them?

My suggestion is to play the games with the least amount of variance until you can prove that you are a profitable player. DO NOT mix in cash and mtt with sng until you can master one of them and turn profits.

Send some hand histories in to The Langolier and he will surely replay one of them and of course watch the many videos available. Ask some of your friends here for some advice on skype or get in a group to discuss optimal plays.

Mostly be honest with yourself and don't just pay lip service that you are studying and learning. Even though you have to play to gain real time experience, you still have to study and learn.

Giddy Up!
