Quick update on progress

By: Dany Boy NZ @ 20:44 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 2 )

So its done, iv finally reached a four figure bankroll grinded up from 50 or 100 bucks about 9 months ago. It would have taken less time if i hadnt kept needing to cash out but atleast i got there.

The games that i discovered and learnt to beat pretty well  (20% roi) were the 9 man hyper turbos, which i actually think are alot of fun if you play afew at a time as to not get bored I started in the $3.5 games and after about 500 games was up a fair bit and quite excited but nervous at the thought of moving up too 7$ games which is the next level up

Fortunatly the "golden sitngoes" promotion ran around the time i was considering this jump and i decided to take a shot when there would be more players playing who wernt regs, that went well and i beat those games from the get go and have had no need to move back down although i have played afew more 3.5s on the odd occasion when i was having nights where i didnt feel i could take a down swing at the 7s very well.

I am now contimplating taking a shot at the 15$ games but have decided to try learn abit more about how to play in different scenarios on the bubble as i feel i bubble more often than my fair share when i am againts three regs and staks are all about the same. Any tips on that scenario from someone playing higher stakes and winning would be apreciated

Thats all  from me
