Default Need some good advice! Just went from 500$ to 10k and back to 80$!

First thing, english is not so strong so please be nice.

Ok........here I go, I have been playing internet poker for about 2-3 years, the first two years was on and off, but 2007 have really been my serious year. I have been reading a lot of books, doing a lot of poker homework over the years.

I play mostly limit hold’em and just started to get in to pot limit omaha, but limit is my strong game. For about a 1,5 months ago I mad a deposit of 500$ to pacific poker and worked my way up to almost 2000$ in a week, make a cash out of 1500$, and left 500$ of profit in pacific to play with. From that 500$, I worked my way up to about 3000$ in 2 weeks only playing limit 5-10$,10-20$ and 30-60$. Cash 1000$ out to neteller and make 500$ deposite on party poker and 500$ pokerstars.

So I had:
500$ party poker
500$ pokerstars
2000$ pacific poker
and I turn it into- 1100$ at party, 1200$ pokerstars, 7100$ pacific poker ( i was VERY LUCKY at pacific poker!)
I mad it only on limit 5-10$-10-20$ at party and Stars( it took me about one week), But on pacific poker I jumped limit and played 30-60$ limit and had a crazy run one night (last week), I started with 10-20$ and turn my 2000$ into almost 3000$, at the same time I was watching a game in the 30-60$ table, and the game was very lose, so I sat down with everything I had in pacific poker and turn it into 7100$
I know the rules nr.1 that I should have 300 BB ( 18K to play 30-60$), but, the game seem so lose and juicy, so I decided to have a go and be very tight, I was playing tight and solid and yes, I was lucky to, the poker god was with me.

Now I was really close to my 10K bankroll! with a total Bankroll of 9400$

The day after the amazing night on pacific poker. I went back, wanting to get above 10K and had a VERY, VERY bad run, it was one of those days, that nothing was good enought, my hand was strong, BUT just not strong enought! The cards was hitting me like a joke, and it just keep on doing that for 2 hours And I tilt, and could'nt control myself, I went from 7100$ to 990$ in about 3 hours, and after that, nothing worked for me, I was playing so badly. lost everything I had at party and pokerstars......At this moment, I only have about 80$ on my pacific poker.

I know, I was stupid......But, I could'nt control it, It was the biggest moment in my internet poker run, and the most stupid thing I ever had done in poker ( in my life ). all I wanted was to hit 10k, what a [censored] joke!

Now I taking a long break. One of my friend own me 2K and I have 80$ in pacific poker this is my last internet poker money, If I go broke on 2080$ I will stop playing on the net for good!

So please I really need some good advice from good people.

Thank U kindly

THe loser

Doesn't sound like you need advice to me...you seem to know what you are doing.

You're not going to get many serious answers in BBV. You should only post here if you want to be assaulted.

That said, you just need to control your tilt. You put in many hours over a few weeks to grow you bankroll, then blew all of it in three hours. I don't know how you'd do this at 30/60 unless you were totally insane and capping every street, so I assume you moved up even higher.

Set rules for yourself, like "I need at least 20 buyins to play in a game. If I lose 3 buyins in a session, I will take at least an hour break and move down in stakes if I don't have the minimum buyin requirement for my previous stakes"

When you follow these rules, you allow your skill to dictate your long-run success and a few bad run of cards can't destroy your bankroll.

This really isn't the place to post this. Serious advice: You need to play with 500BB for each level. Start posting in small stakes limit hold'em on this site, learn, and play 3/6 - 5/10.

Deposit everything you can into party blackjack and get unstuck.

Thank for the advice

U are really right about needing to control my tilt. When I get a lot of bad beat in a sassion, I break my own rules! That is scary.

I don't normally post here or anywhere, this is my 2 time ever posting. And I think that 2+2 can't be a bit hard to find the right place to post or find advice. Meybe I'm just not use to it yet...

Thank again!
