Grinding out of the microstakes

My journey from being a losing 1/2c player
Send PM

Nearly blew it again

Its rather ironic that after my last blog being about what next to do with my brm bankroll building mission that my latest session involved me playing in hyperturbos heauds up for 75% of my bankroll :( .
All i can say is i had one of those "must win it back" thought processes and as a result very quickly moved up stakes, fortunatly i did end back on 50 dollars but this was still very worrying for me as it makes me doubt weather i will ever show enough self control to not risk my whole bankroll due to a losing session. As i have blown significantly larger bankrolls time and time again.

Neway i have decided to play in 2/5c ring games for the mean time and i also will play in afew mtt, mostly large gaurantees which i will satalite into as i do not want to buyin to a tournament for more than 2% of my broll and at the moment that is just over a dollar so satalites will be perfect.

Neway im off to the cash games for now so wish me luck :)
