So I've been playing poker for roughly 2-3 months now. I put in a decent amount of studying, play quite often and understand how to use the mathematics side of poker when playing. I do everything I've learned dealing with odds, outs, waiting for good hands and using position to my advantage. My question is, why am I a losing player, my first month I was making a profit - nothing huge, but a profit. Now I am negative, I don't understand why I'm losing all the time. I'll fold for hours, get pocket kings and get beat on the river with a set of Queens. I know as a beginner you're not gonna turn much of a profit, but is it normal to be negative and not cash out 90 percent of the time when you're doing everything. I know luck is not the tell all about poker, but do I not have a tiny bit of luck to be a profitable poker player or is this just the norm for the beginner players?
