Grinding out of the microstakes

My journey from being a losing 1/2c player

Slowest grind of my life

By: Dany Boy NZ @ 22:50 (EST) / 223 / Comment ( 0 )

I have been playing in the 1/2c nl holdem games for afew days know and have a 2 dollar profit haha.
I dont think i can continue to grind in these as i feel i am more of a tourny player and so i am going to play in many of the 360 seater 10c buyinturbo sitngos.
My bankroll is now 12$ so i can take the down swings if i dont cash for along time but i am hoping for a few final tables and hopfully a win or two.
Any advice on how best to approach these?
I use to play in the 180 seater 1 dollar turbo sitngos and was quite profitable in those just by playing tight would the same approach be good?
Any thoughts are highly appreciated
