Double Vision and Double Trouble At PokerStars
The second story to relate is a sad one. A Russian player with the username I7AXA had a tremendous run in last Sunday's PokerStars Sunday Millions tournament. He came in second for his biggest score ever of around $143,000. Instead of reveling in his victory and massive win, he chose to step up and play some of the biggest games immediately with his new large bankroll.
He started playing $5k Sit n' Goes, losing a lot of them, as he lost more and more he moved down in limits, going all the way down to $30 SNG's, then $7 SNG's and eventually using Frequent Players Points after he had lost it all within 24 hours.
The picture of his results graph above shows the tremendous upswing from his victory and his resulting calamitous losses as he kept playing and losing his new found winnings.
Some players just don't know when to quit. Bankroll management is so important to a player's success.
