Wasup players
I'm playing poker quite some time now on pokerstars, you might say i'm one of those recreational players, though I do watch training videos so I could improve my game. So far I didn't really have any big winnings, but I cashed once nearly 300$ in 1.10$ tournament. The main reason I think i'm posting this is so I could see where/when I do my mistakes as well as maybe take some advice from you guys. Also this will probably prevent me from peeing away my bankroll when i'm tilting since I wouldn't like to end this early.
I don't really think I will be focusing on a certain type of games, I will mix it up from time to time, but I won't be placing my bankroll at risk , however I find 2nl cash games really fun to play and I already feel comfortable playing 4-6 tables which is a lot for player like me
Okay, so I started with 10.04$ (can't remember when I think twas february 15-ish had few short sessions and one quite a long one). Here is my current 2nl stats:
Starting bankroll: $10.04
Profit/Loss Current Month: $22.66
Hands played: 7252
I have a bad feeling about my graph is it suppose to look like american hills ...

Also I went quite deep in $0.55 tournament, there were 10 players left and I got busted 10th and won $8.08. http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...784_501EAEA159
I literally heard explosions with every ace hitting the board. This should be next to definition of the word 'crushed' in every dictionary. I actually thought about folding, because I had a decent stack and if I waited out 3 short stacks to bust I could've cashed nearly 50$~ . So i'm quite hard on myself for making that call.

Total bankroll: $40.35 (profit: $30.31) (i'm missing few cents probably donked it on some sngs, this is exactly why this thread will help me lol)
My main goal is to not donk my entire BR doing some stupid stuff I tend to do.
Might set some more serious goals in the future if things go right for me.
I'm going to post stuff here from time to time. Like the way I play with pocket aces. Seriously I can't play pocket aces, as hilarious as it sounds , I just can't.
Would be kewl if someone could tell me how to link my boom hands so people could see them instantly instead of having to click on the link.
By the way is there any difference between 2nl and 2nl zoom, besides speed?

It's a small sample so far so your graph will look like that, every big pot will look like a huge swing, particularly if there are two or three in one direction in a short period of time.

If the general direction is up, you are going in the right direction.

Good luck.
