How I did it: I was worried because I'd lost $2000 mostly in $1-2, $1-3, and $2-5 over the course of a few sessions. It worried me enough to cause me to deemphasize brick and mortar poker and play more online.
However, now that I've been learning to beat much tougher online games, I have confidence. It helps that I've run really good lately and won back all that plus more, and my winrate is up above $11/hour now at $1-2 and $1-3. (It's probably really higher, because I've become a lot better NLHE player at the end of that than at the beginning.)
