Hey donk1989, hows it going? I remember seeing you at a table about 2-3 weeks ago at 10nl, I embarked on a project like yours about 5 months ago, I made a topic about it, but that was just me ranting about the variance, but lo and behold:Posted ImageI'm not trying to post a brag (ok a little), but just wanted to wish you good luck and anyone else doing the same. It can be done!
Wow, you have so little play money!!Good job man, how much did you start up with? :-)

That's nice. Oh, and you got 3000FPP, you should register to the 1mill TT! :)The cash prices are nice considering minimum 1/5 gets paid.

Running really bad... back down to $560Lost about $60 or so playing 45 man turbos, ran the worse in my life lmaoLost the rest playing 10nl, running terrible. Probably lost 3/4 of it running bad and 1/4 tilt/could've played betterPlayed for an hour today and lost $6, I lost $15 alone when I flopped a set and rivered full house led to someone else's bigger full house.First time I flopped a set and guy turned bigger set, board paired on the river.Second time, guy called me down with top two when I had a set and rivered his full house.

some honest opinions. if you consider yourself a good player.take 400. go to your local B&M. play some 1/2NL. proceed to make a couple buyins leave.deposit the profit backonline with another account for bonus whoring.transfer from 1 account to other.refresh and look at your new amount.sit down at a level higherwin moneys while building confidence.go back to previous limit and dominate for 1 month.jump levels./easy

i did.a couple times over.its just too bad i'm not 21 with zero expenses. but i've said that enough times i sound like a bitter old man.But seriously, cant stress it enough... Online poker is great when you have a BR that allows you to multi table. Majority of people can do this if they play a lower limit.But the lower limits can be boring,(for me) can be often awkward, especially since sometimes at 50NL you'll have total amateurs and some kids who post at FCP at the same table.with live. You spot the amateurs from the good players before you even sit down. You focus yourself in 1 game. as long as you dont go into robot mode you'll be fine.If you have a casino nearby with decent games/structure. Its a +EV decision to take a chance, bring 450 of your roll with you. play some 1/2NL buyin for 150. You have 3 buyins that way. and just play standard tight poker.you arent going to win a hell of a lot unless you get lucky, buut you're there to just make a few hundred and help get yourself up a limit online.

How many hands did you play, roughly, to get from 80 to 1k?

I've really turned it around. I'm winning consistently and I feel great about my game. I'm back up to $643.Attached is my graph from 11/06 to 11/29I've played 20,790 hands and I'm at about 27 hours played. My bb/100 is 6.11 and my hourly rate is $4.71Once I get up to about $800 (give or take) I'll move up to 25nl.Hopefully I can continue to have these results.

I deposited $10 on Full Tilt and now I'm up to $40 in about 5 days.I seem to have a knack for SnGs around $1, $2 and $5 but I can't play the cash tables at all. I just can't seem to play well betting in $s rather than chips, it's silly.I'm trying to take it table by table and build my bankroll seeing as I've never played online before this.
