Default Sad & Poker Lost !!

I have been playing online poker most everyday now for 3 years.....thats THREE YEARS !!.......I have played most all sites & read most all books - even Barry's "Ace on the River"....I have played over 700 online trny's -mainly at UltimateBet.com......I don't have huge bankrolls at any given time,so I have mainly play from .02 cent tables to 2-4 dollar NL( $.025-.050 ) -being my main stakes.....Out of the 700+ trny's , I have won 1...... I am a TOTAL LOSER in all games & trny's. . . I have takin MULTIBLE suk-outs on every table i've played.....I am down approx.$4-5,000.00 in the 3 years of torture , I DO KNOW HOW TO PLAY POKER !!.....But I am being totally beat up by draw-outs ( where I'm in with the best hand ) - I will be all-in with the best hand 90% of the time too...I'm not an idiot . . . here's 1 example - I was in a trny (sunday night $200+15)- I won the seat thru a 3 dollar rebuy at Ultimate Bet....I was up against "KrazyKanuck" Late in the trny, I had QQ...he had KJ os...he raised - I took him all-in.....flop was 5 9 2....turn came a Jack....The River card "PAUSED" & kinda blinked & it was a King----- HAHA---ya sure !!....( I did make in the money , but this trny paid $34K for 1st place & all I got was a bad beat & $155.00 - which bites !! -).....I have dealt with this kinda stuff every day forever now & I don't know what to do with it... its not just a bad beat now & then ( which I can take )....its the fact that I can never leave a table with any profit due to the beats I've takin.......I've had AA or KK & some little girl or grandma "without a clue" chases a rag flush , no matter what or how I bet & then when the hands over & I've lost ...She says "Wheeew" I was sure sweat'n there ???--- WTF---Is there any way to EVER win a dollar online ? ......I want to totally give up & go away !!

maybe this is a good idea...without posting any HH or PT stats it's impossible to tell if you really are "playing correctly" but i, and many posters here, can attest to the fact that most games online are beatable. yes bad beats are annoying but they happen to everyone...check out the WSOP section for my latest and greatest beat...but the fact is if you really put your money is as a favorite "90% of the time" you'll win...my guess is that this is a case of selective memory...you remember all of the "bad beats" but forget about the time you pushed 2 pair into a four-flushed board...if you're really interested in improving, read some of the strategy articles on this site...post some interesting/confusing/tough decision hands and try to get better...if you're only looking to complain and for a sympathetic shoulder to cry on...no one cares

Default Care & Sympathy......

I realize what "Care & Sympathy" in the Poker Realm is worth.........I'm always looking & trying to get better , I have played to poker perfection & still lose....I have played against Phil Hellmuth , Annie , KrazyKanuck ,Antonio & others at lower stakes online rings...They win - I lose...... O yes , I can build up a stack & play very tight/aggressive & i do have Patience , but in the end - I will always take a bad beat from a " no clue" player & there goes my stack.....There is absolutely no way to win at online poker !!....at least I'm here to tell you this....

You've basically said your a bad poker player and now your telling people who make money online playing here that it's impossible?

So let me get this straight.

You've been playing poker for 3 years and have locked horns with the best in the business.

You're only down about $4-5K which at that level isn't very much. We've a forum member lose and win $10K in a week.

If you are good enough to just about hold your own against the best poker players the sport has to offer, and only end up a couple or grand down then you can easily beat lower stake games.

Anybody whose played poker for 3 years and has played against the best poker players in the world is a winning player at some level. Whether it's the 1/2 or 20/40.

Skid 1, my best advice is to quit playing. You have studied and played a lot and still lose, it is time to move on.

Obviously he doesnt currently have a sound mental state to play a game that can get quite frustrating. Reading his post I picture a crazed maniac smashing keys and spewing bile all of his monitor.

Calm down at the table dude, slow down and take the time to think about what you are doing and why you are doing it. If you throw chips around anything close to the way you post messages, I can see why you are losing money. No offense, I'm serious. The game is much easier to play when you chill out a little.

Anyone can become a winning player with enough work a practice. I think since the poker boom (thanks Moneymaker) this statement is true. That being said no one is unlucky for 3 years, so if you have put in the work and are still losing then maybe I am wrong and poker is not for you.

You are only 10% behind Phil Helmuth

He will always be a losing player as long this is his attitude. You cannot become a winner if you always think you are playing great poker. When you realize you suck, then you can really improve (not just directed at him, me too).
