You Play Too Many Tournaments with marked modiano cards
While it is true that there are recreational and pro players that make money in poker tournaments, the majority do not. Poker tournaments is a lot like playing baseball. Even the biggest stars actually fail 70% of the time. Many popular home run hitters in the game's history have horrible or mediocre-at-best lifetime batting averages.
The same holds true for poker. While we make a big deal out of someone making a final table, they are probably busting in 7 of 10 tournaments played. Sure, they are going to homer (take an event down) on occasion, but they are going to have many more strikeouts than homers.
Let’s say you're cashing in 7 of 10 tournaments, but the majority of your cashes are min-cashes. Over time, you're going to be bleeding off tons of money. That's one reason so many players go into debt playing tournaments.
Some players make a huge score and then decide to up the frequency of their tournament play. If they don’t have the ability to support such a move, they are just going to bleed off money faster.
If you're a tournament player, start tracking how much you're making compared to your buy-ins. Don't just rely on a backer to fund your play because you're unable to make enough to stay in the games.
To paly playing cards Tournaments can not use invisible ink marked cards.
