Anything over 17% ROI in the 30's is highly unlikely.

Okay, thanks for the advice. There's no reason to be sorry, Curtains. I'm trying to fix leaks, not deny that they are real.

So, the difference in chips is likely hurting me. Yes, I do play similarly to the 800 chip level tournaments. What, precisely, do I need to change?

I'm thinking it's time for a whole new research/tear down/rebuild session.

Heh. For some reason, I doubt this thread really has gotten over 1000 views. Am I that popular?

No you aren't. However, people always like to read about other's misfortunes to make themselves feel better about their own lives.

The major difference I've seen is that you have to play more poker on level 3 and 4.

The real reason is that with 1000 chips you are getting more implied odds which means it's correct to be playing more hands in the early levels. Not lots more but some.

I've viewed it a few times and not because I'm taking pleasure in your troubles. Seems strange to me that someone who has like 6 posts would come into this thread and comment at all.

I certainly hope it boils down to something simple that you can fix easily. Based on my much more limited experience, it is much easier to pick up a bunch of chips in the first few levels of the $55s, not as much by catching junk all-ins with AA or KK (though that still happens), but just by playing a few more hands and picking up some pots. I was quite surprised with the frequency I was hitting the later levels with like 1600 chips.

Are you sure you're not tilting just a tiny bit?

Also, it's not super tragic, you are winning and will almost certainly improve.
