My story

By: dave.j.h23 @ 18:28 (EST) / 258 / Comment ( 9 )

Firstly a bit of info on me, this is the very first blog i've ever written but hopefully i can can make it interesting enough as to not make you fall asleep.

I've have been playing poker for around ten years now , mainly for fun and to be social. I started out playing pub poker leagues, which still to this day i enjoy. I've travelled around playing, even all the way to vegas!  I'm by no means a pro or a grinder more of an enthusiast and fanboy.

I am married with 3 kids and work full time, so any extra time i get i try to play online or sometimes live.

I am lucky enough to live a 20 min drive away from DTD in Nottingham, so i do spend some time playing sats trying to get a seat in some of the bigger games but mostly i just play micro mtts and sng.

So back to the title, never being one for bankroll management i asked myself could i build up a bankroll and play higher buy in games. The normal story as always been deposit, then either lose and deposit again or make a decent cash, withdraw it, lose what i left in then deposit again or sometimes just buying in to games for all my bankroll.

Well we're a week into 2017 and it stops now!

At the time of writing this i have $12.94 in my stars account, my main goal is not to deposit EVER again.

This will not be some speedy grind up but hoping to get in at least 2 - 3 sessions a week and sticking to strict bankroll rules and we'll see where it takes us.

GL all.
