a few months in....... update

By: sparkes25 @ 19:37 (EDT) / 537 / Comment ( 1 )

ok, so i have been playing online for a few years and not really cared that much about it, but 3 months ago i said i would stop messing around and see if i could start making money. so i joined the poker school, played the open league, did the lessons ect, and here is an update on how its working out.


i have been promoted in the league and have made the cash in the prem league, which i feel is an ok result  when i can only play 3-4 times a week.

i have also not had to make a deposit for the last 3 months, as the money i am making in the league and by playing the freerolls is keeping my bankroll going.

i have made gold star, and am working on keeping it for next month ( got myself a free t-shirt)

my bankroll started at $57 a few months ago, i have reached the hights of $870,  but i am now floating around the $690 area.

i am still limiting myself to 1c/2c cash, and 180 player sng's that are $2.50 each, and the odd mtt that is less then $2.70

i plan to stick to these stakes untill i hit $1500.


i am also making other plans in my life to get myself ready to play poker full time, i have cleared all my dept, and have started paying more rent, i am now 3 months in advance but i plan to be 1 year in advance. i have also cut back on most of my out goings so to reduce my living expenses.

i am getting things sorted so i can spend a year off work playing poker and if i dont win any money playing poker i will still have the bills paid and food ect.

i am also building a second bankroll as back up if i bust my smaller $690 roll. my back up bank roll now stands at $3,700 and i am adding $1,300 to it everytime i get paid, i would like to get it up to $15,000 before i stop working. i am hoping i will not need to use this extra money, but its there if needed


i would like to ask the other full time players, what stakes i should be playing so i can make $800 a month. please note i play 6 tables max, but do better when playing 4 tables.

i was thinking that if i have a bankroll of $10,000+ i could play 10c/25c x 4 tables and i would be able to make $20-$40 a day if i play for 5-6 hours a day .average over the month.
