Learning to Crawl Before I Walk

EvilOrly\’s Poker Journey

My Stomach Hurts

I am done with the Party bonus ($100). Get this, I am still down $11 from what I bought in with even with the bonus added on. This just makes me want to vomit. Makes the second bonus I have done since playing NL and the second I lost money on. Paradise was my first and I lost so much it wasn’t even worth finishing that bonus. At the start of my session it looked like I would be up at least $50, but then my King high straight ran into an Ace high straight, a few hands came up that hurt me as well, I didn’t get stacked in those but I did have to lay down a few nice sized pots that hurt me, but when someone comes over the top all in what do you do unless you have the nuts? I have learned in the last few days all you can do is lay it down.

I believe most people would have just gave up by now, not showing any real gain since playing NL yet. I have had my thoughts myself. I keep seeing on different forums on how anyone can beat these 25NL games, that they are so easy… yadda ,yadda. Well I must be an idiot because goddamnit I am having a hard time. I am going to continue on though. If things do not turn around soon though, I believe my challenge will be a wash.

My next stop will be UB I am pretty certain. The bonus is slow I hear but they release it everyday and I hear from alot of people that the lower limits like I play, are full of the same ‘easy’ competition. My only issue with ub so far is no table resizing. I have a CRT monitor right now and when I raise my resolution up high enough on it to put a few tables on the screen it strains my eyes after a bit. We will see how it works out.

  1. Hang in there. If it makes you feel any better I’m down to $27 in my new Party account. I deposited $500 and got a $25 bonus. Seems like NL goes in bunches for me. If I was to pull out 5K hands from my PokerTracker I might be a loser or breakeven player. Pull out a different 5K hand streak and I’m a stud. Hopefully this is what’s happening to you and your game will come around.
