beleive me, often I see similar crap around so I even start to feel like "I have no clue how can I win, how could I win all the time previously?". And I feel so fkn surprizingly easy-to-win when I catch a good situation/card streak...

HAHA YES Exactly POD!

2 weeks ago I was on could 9, couldn't lose. Now I can't win even with the nuts on the flop!!!! It just shows the importance of bankroll MGT. I'm so glad I didn't go 25nl when i hit 500 cause I'd be broke!!!

I guess I have to learn when I am running bad to minimize that loss. Not sure if taking a break or dropping limit is best way to go, maybe both?

If your 1st goal is to learn, which I assume it should be cause you are not crushing NL100+ so you are not playing for living, then yeah - do whatever makes you feel ok and keep staying sane while playing.

I know it sucks to understand at least next several months you won't be grinding for 5 figures cause the stakes are micro, but what can you do if you don't grasp the game as good as someone like ShoveOrFold or Trikkur? I think raw money should be your last goal in this situation, try to play good, maintain healthy mood and learn what you can

Poker is so much like SC2.... Been playing sc2 for 8 months now and I always loved 4 gate for so long, then I tried 3 gate 1 robo and it blew my mind..... haha

In short just when you think you know everything about poker you learn some new once again. Even if you been playing it for years and years.
