Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it's the best I could find. I busto'd today and I think this might be the end of my poker journey. I just can't seem to ever gain the traction I need to be a long-term successful player. I feel like I've played pretty well in spots and have run up my bankroll, but then I just get pummeled back to even.

I've read a ton of books. I've played a ton of cash game hands and a fair number of tourneys and sit n gos.

I feel like I have a pretty good general understanding of the game and a pretty decent understanding of the theory behind things like avoiding over-folding to avoid being exploited.

I don't want to be a mediocre player for the rest of my poker playing career. I try too hard and I have put too much effort into too many hands to continue this way.

I don't rely on poker as a means of support and have a great paying job, but poker has been a passion I have wanted to pursue for many years. I want to be a bracelet winner. I want to take down a six figure cash. I just want to be among the best, but here I am...stuck.

If you take the time to read this, thank you. I'm kind of at my wits end here and would love to hear what anyone has t say , or if you've been in a similar situation and have pulled through and how exactly you did it. I've never been one to shy away from hours or studying, but I just feel so stuck.
