Mark | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament

My online poker tournament year has been absolutely terrible with only two final table finishes all year. Due to my bad run I am experiencing increasing difficulties dealing with the luck factor of the game. I feel like an injustice is done to me every time someone sucks out on me. Watching the final table action of the WSOP main event has just confirmed the fact that luck is a key factor in poker.

You can be the best player in the world but if you are not lucky and those coinflips roll your way, you will never win a poker tournament.

I have to to face that luck is just not on my side these days. In addition my bitterness over being knocked out of tournament after tournament has started to eat away at my passion for the game. Worse yet, the bitterness persists for longer and longer time after the tournaments have ended which has not gone unnoticed by my surroundings.

Therefore I’m calling it quits for at least two full months until I feel ready to play again. I will still play the freerolls in my Poker tournament league but I will not play in anything else. I will keep track of my tournament poker break progress in the comment section of this article.

Day 1 of my tournament break: The bitterness from yesterday has disappeared. This is usually when I start considering playing tournaments again. But not this time.

Had 4$ left in my FTP account so signed up for a tournament. Now I regret doing so. I’m soooo pissed off. Lose with KK vs AQ in another one of those situations where I’m ahead with my tournament life on the line.
Good think is that I have no money left in my FTP account so I will not be able to play at all for the next two months. FFS!!!!
