I've played poker semi-seriously for a few years, over various stakes right 2nl to 100nl. Results are mixed and I never really tracked them but overall I'd say break even to very small win.
The last few weeks I decided I'd deposit $100 and try to grind up to being rolled for 100nl. I bought From the Ground Up and also working my through the Grinders Manual, so I guess following Pete Clarke's guidance. I've been 4 tabling 10nl on partypoker.
It started great and within a few sessions I was up 15BIs. However the wheels have come off and I'm now just 1.5BIs up. I'm not big headed or naive enough to say I'm just running bad. Two big leaks I think I have calling down too much and more generally mental issues with tilt, which compounds errors like the former.
Needless to say the 14BI downswing has knocked my confidence. I'm determined to improve and grind back up. I've no poker "friends" or "community" so it would be great to make some connections to sound things out with and help each other out.
Looking forward to some positive responses.
