I’m cashing out the $72 I have in my Full Tilt Poker account. Reason being that the money would probably be better served in a different place. Like, for example, my bank account. I’ve been playing a bit the last few weeks, and although my “bnkrll” (so little I can’t afford to buy vowels) was making a bit of progress, I’ve hit a rough patch as of late and I figured I’d better get out while I still have money in there. As it stands, I’m taking out more money than I put in, so I’m relatively happy. This isn’t me steaming and giving FTP the finger; if there ever comes a point where I have enough disposable income to play again, I’ll probably go back there.
Then again, it’s becoming more and more apparent that I just really, really suck at poker, and have little if any chance of improving my game. I’ve read four different books on the game, including one book that was written specifically for low-limit games, and either I haven’t learned a thing from any of them or I still lost despite what I’ve learned. The sad thing is, if I were to sell the books on eBay, there’s a chance I could make more money that way than I ever did actually playing.
