the start

I've decided this year is my year, I have been seriously I'll for a year and a half now and can't do much so I've been thinking and I've decided to get my online poker career off to a proper start!

I've been playing on pokerstars for over a year now and put money in but not really out more down to my own stupidly then anything I've own but I've always played it away treating it as entertainment more then actually a money maker. So this is when it ends I'm going to stop throwing money away and try and earn some back, I've decided to start up slowly put $10 a week into it and aim low to start with if I can make a dollar a day back I'll be very happy with myself to begin with.

So here's my plan:
Play as many freerolls as I can to get a head start before I get paid and can actually deposit!
Play sensibly (stop tilting when I lose against a weaker hand preflop)
Start to make some real money out of it.

Week One
Freerolls are bugging the hell out of me can't seem to get off my feet yet but will keep trying that's all I can do I don't get paid for 6 days so plenty of time to keep going, I'm trying the satellites for the weekly round 2s to get a head start but the fields are vast and trickieness seems to be key with them hopefully I'll get somewhere soon with them, I'm not making note of every freeroll I play unless I cash in them seems pointless when I'm not spending money on them! 

I won 10FPPs on the Pokerschool scratch and win promotion I played some satellites for the Sunday storm and Saturday splash but didn't get anywhere, just got to keep trying!

2.00am bankrollmob freeroll
I cashed at last!
I only for 0.07cents but still it's a start! I finished in 61st place.

I've played in 3 0.02cent sit and goes but unfortunately have not got anywhere yet!
Still playing freerolls and hoping to get somewhere soon!
I took part in the January daily challenges and won a ticket to the all in shootout so I registered for the one today but unfortunately didn't get anywhere, just gotta keep going! 

I have won another 10FPPs on pokerschools scratch and win so I will be playing some more satellites to try and win some more tickets!
