I started off with 20 dollars in my online account today, I built it up to 230...then I got all excited and blew the lot..

Has this happened to anyone else, and do you ever think whats the point ?

How do you bounce back ?

Come on now, bounce back? You've lost 20 dollars overall after rushing to 230. It's good for you to keep doing this as you are clearly still in a formative stage of poker. Expect major up and downs. $20 is no good as a starting figure unless you're playing some micromicro limit.

You must realise this is not a situation bad enough for one to mill over and as you say, 'think what's the point'. You must have tilted and/or overextended to lose the 230. For some time to come you will probably blame everything you can until you realise that the blame lies with yourself. You must first make yourself undefeatable before you can think about defeating others. (Totally and shamefully stolen from the Art of War).
