You know being card dead is different from the situations you describe? Card dead just means you NEVER get dealt anything playable, just rag hand after rag hand. The other shit you talk about is just running bad.

If I remember correctly you could be an online spell checker for hire!

Try playing some micro SNGs $5 and the like!

You don't even need cards to win at this level, stick a post it note over your cards and you can still make mony by stealing blinds from tight players and playing basic ICM strategy!

Wow this thread is still archived, I googled it out of curiosity.

So I ended up leaving ~$200 on Party Poker after cashing out 3.5 years ago. Last year I played a few random sessions at NL25 and NL10 and I was down to ~$90. In September I started grinding 4NL again and I'm up to ~$200 in my BR right now.

I'm going to do the 20 buy-in rule for cash games and see how far I can take this. I got the trial version of pokertracker and it's been rather helpful so far. When it expires in November I'll re-evaluate from there and see if I want to bite the bullet and pay for the software for keeps.

I've been 3 tabling at most and I feel pretty good about the game again. It will probably take a good year or two to get back where I was (BR ~$4000) but I am feeling optimistic. See you guys around.

Way to get back in the game. PokerTracker is compulsory IMO.

He could also get the low stakes version of HEM for $55 if he is sticking to the lower limits.

Welcome back.

Don't let this influence your game but please just don't break even long-term this time, rather beat or bust.
