I've been a subscriber for almost a year, since joining I have two 5-figure scores, a 1st (12k) & a 2nd in a WSOP circuit (14.5K). I won over 10K playing 5/10 at the Wynn last summer in about 40 hours (short sample). Sadly, I'm broke now. I am absolutely awful at managing money, I play out of my BR, I chase, & I've lost over 100K in my life betting sports. It's sad bc I'm a really talented, winning, poker player w/ 10 years of experience & I eat, breathe, & sleep poker. It's my passion.
With that said, people always think they're great at poker, sex, basketball...better than they really are. Part of being a great poker player is the ability to sustain & manage a bankroll. My biggest leak I think is bet sizing. Since I'm usually playing 2/5 w/ very little money to my name, I try to play a low variance/pot control style. By doing this I think sometimes I bet too small in relation to the pot.
Does anybody have any bet sizing or poker tutorials on how to improve my bet sizing? Also, I hate asking this but what is the best way to get staked? I'm a winning player & I need someone to believe in me & take me under their wing. Unfortunately, I was staked in my win this year (250$ buy in) so had to give my backer 6K (50%).
I think I could make someone money. I play 1/2 or 2/5. I live in Central Florida & usually play at Tampa Hard Rock. I've lost a lot of my roll playing 5/5 PLO there, but the games are great. But I'm completely under rolled & can't take the variance. I do like the option to run it twice.
Its depressing going busto, but I know I'll be back. Florida is a great place for poker. I've gone broke too many times to be playing this long. Any help would be appreciated.
