Sorry about that, i've adjusted my response. And you said you'd been playing for 3 years not 10 years. If you didn't figure out you were a losing player in 10 years then maybe you should just look at it as a hobby. At least then it wont cost you so much. Enter a cheap $1.10 MTT once a day like i do. It's a couple of hours fun/serious learn time. And it pays off once in a while.

I should perhaps have been less blunt with you, but from what I can tell you don´t get much enjoyment from poker, and as you are not making money on it either then poker is not good to you.

I understand that you really want to be a good poker player, but the advice we can give is pretty much the same as what you have already read in your books.

You have to be a little crazy to become good at poker. All the brains in the world is no good either if you easily get emotional at the table.

I suspect you are a fairly intelligent guy who has a tendency to tilt when running into bad beats. Some people get used to bad beats after awhile, but others don´t.

I am not saying you are too stupid to play poker for a good profit or anything, your personality is just not the best for poker playing, and there is nothing wrong with that.

I am incompetent at simple tasks like putting up a shelf or hammering nails and I play soccer like a little girl, but it is ok because I am ok at other stuff. There is nothing wrong with not being good at a particular thing.

well first of all...no one who has responded to your post claims to be a pro...however you stated that it's impossible to win at online poker...i contested that it is indeed possible...and many will agree with this...

we have a beginner's corner so that beginners can post basic strategy questions and improve their play...you've not done this...you hopped on stated you were a seasoned veteran who's played with some of the highest stakes pros in the world...but you continue to lose...and you're a surprised that you were met with hostility?

i'm not posting this to be argumentative at all, however it seems as though you're looking for a magic pill that will make bad beats stop happening and cause to to finally make "the income your talent deserves" or something...frankly it doesn't exist...you say you have a solid understanding about the basics of poker, i can promise you, that is all you need to beat the level of games that you're talking about...that's about as much help as anyone can offer you...

The only way that I have had the "Honor" of playing with Hellmuth & Annie etc. is because they play at UltimateBet.com & i was fortunate to get on a table with them.............If nothing else comes from Poker for me - At least I have my Framed Hand History where I took down Phil for a decent pot one evening !!.............Its tuff out here !!

Skid, if you need help, I suggest posting questions or problems you need help with. Simply making a statement about how much you've lost and how long you've played means nothing. You said you read all the books, but did you understand them? I mean I can't see how someone with a extensive knowlege of poker as gained from 10 years experince and all the books that have been written cannot beat low stakes online games. I would suggest posting problem hands and other issues you've had, other then bad beats. Variance shouldn't last for 3 years of play, so its not bad beats costing you $5000.
