Thumbs down What's my problem ? Can't win anymore...

Hello 2p2'ers ,

I was a really winning player with high roi and really good scores 7-8 months ago..Since april 2012 , I am always break-even and no big scores..I really think about quitting poker but I dont have any alternative except playing poker for living..What do you suggest for me ? What's my problem ? I don't think it's just variance or downswing? I lost my passion to the game because of this ****..

Here is my sharkscope , I am still break even from 4k to 8k almost 4k tournies..

add party/.fr/fulltilt/180mans to lower fields/cut variance, it will help you get through streaks without huge scores.

You could suck, it could be variance. For most people its both so bottom line is keep working on your game and man up.

We need to know a little more about what games you are playing (# of players, sites, average buy in, spread of buy ins, etc) before giving you any proper advice

Re: What's my problem ? Can't win anymore...

Thanks for all your comments..

I am playing mostly micro-low stakes , average buy-in about 16-17$ but there are many shots higher than my abi playing on just stars..Especially big fields around 3-4k..

I've won big 4.40 , big 5.50 , big 8.80 and 1.10 3x Turbo and they really gave me flying roi..

Re: What's my problem ? Can't win anymore...

Doubt you're allowed to ship the mythical and then moan about a break-even stretch.

Most likely its a mix of variance, games getting tougher, losing your passion etc etc. The probability of running BE or at a loss in big field tournaments over that stretch for games, even for a good winning player, wouldn't be very low at all I imagine.

Better to have a 4k BE with almost no downswings in there, than a massive downswing.
