Hi All,

This is going to be my thread for updating the $5 to $100 grind for the Bankroll Builders live training series. The training sessions will be on Mondays. Check out the Live Training calendar for the exact times.

Join me in the live training for discussion on Bankroll Management and playing at the different levels of SitnGos as we go.

The current level is Level 5 : The End Game

Current Roll : $122.12

Cheers
Andy aka "ahar010"

BR Rules:
  • $0 - $10
    • 25c 45man
    • 25c 90man

So we are starting at the basic building blocks level. Playing the 25c games to develop a base level of games we consistently and efficently beat. Grinding to the next level at $10

LOL,cheers ahar.

Guarantee you when I get my first Royal on here it will be the same thing...just meaningless overkill on an already made hand.

Looked sexy though.

And again kids remember....grind these games like ahar and you can afford a biz azz pimp daddy mug of brew as well.

Hi Paul,

The video should be up later this week I hear.

Ones of the things we would be trying to achieve along with building a bankroll is a good grounding in each game type. Yes, once we hit $10 we would be able to move up. But I think it's a good idea to continue on the 25c games for the first 2 weeks, to get a good sample size in. If people have had alot of experience at the 25c level (or any of the other levels we go through) they may well move up as soon as they hit the target. But yes as soon as the bankroll drops back up $10 it would be back to 25c games.

Thanks
Andrew

I like the idea ahar and will be watching.

As a sidenote I hate that the next step up is a turbo style,think Stars should really look into
offering a regular speed for that level. Just a jolt to the system for those with small rolls.

+1

Also think it would be cool if they added a couple games to the .25 and .50 rotations. The site has done a nice job adding .55 MTT's to that menu (love the idea of a .55 Mixed Hold 'Em tourney,will definitely be on that when we get back on here...). Adding a second .25 ($100 added) MTT to supplement the one at 10PM EST would be the biggest boon the site could do for the mini-micro MTT players. Just such a great value tournament for that level that having two a day instead of one would be great. But overall between the 3 .10 ($50 Added ) MTT's a day,the .25 ($100 Added) and the 4 .55 MTT's now available I think the site is offering a nice menu at that level for MTT play.

At the .25 and .50 SNG levels though the pickings thin out a little. A 27 man .25 would be welcome and at the .50 level adding a non-turbo game would be great. And between the two levels having an Omaha or mixed option at on or both would be excellent. Never understood why they offer a .10 Omaha game---the 240 PLO SNG--and then nothing but NLHE until you reach the $1.00 and above level.

And yes this is something I e-mail as a suggestion every now and again.

BR Rules:
$0 - $10

>$10
50c 45man turbos
>$15
50c 90man turbos

Starting to play some turbos now.
The turbos give us higher variance and lower ROI, but we overcome these factors through sheer volume. Turbos are quick and we should be able to improve volume here.

Sorry I've been out of the country and missed an update along with a bit of volume. But managed to make you for it with the return of the run good.

I played a couple more 45mans with 2 good results and then stepped up to the 90mans. Again with some good results.

Finish Pnl Roll
2/45 $3.85 $22.77
3/45 $2.84 $25.61
1/90 $10.70 $36.31
4/90 $3.34 $39.65
23/90 -$0.50 $39.15
60/90 -$0.50 $38.65
1/90 $10.70 $49.35

This week we move up to the $1 regular speed 45mans
