May I suggest you stick to .25c 45/90 man Sit n Go tournaments.

Do the Cowboy's Challenge and post your progress in the 'Blogs, Challenges & Achievements' section.

Set aside $6.25 for this challenge (25 buy-ins).

Post your results including

Date
Tournament ID #
Buy-in (ie .25c)
Amount Won
Balance Brought Forward.

I'm doing this challenge myself and you can click here for an example of how I post my results.

Always try to play your best and learn a little every day. It might take a few weeks or months but if you do this you will see a huge improvement.

I definitely think it would be worth it.

This way you will get 100 tournaments of practice in with a BR of $6.25.

It's TOO easy to burn $8 even at 1/2c cash, I've done this within an hour of sitting at a cash table before.

I'd like to see you post some of the hands that you've entered the pot with, even if they are folded post flop, in the Hand Analysis section. Not just the bad beats,but hands where you are wondering 'Did I do the right thing by folding?' and so on. Post a few hands where you have won the pot too.

Agree with the posts on the 25c games. If you find you don't have time for them (given that it can takes over 2.5 hours to complete a tournament) then give 2c/4c limit cash games a try. Take 80c be disciplined and only play good hands in position, only premium in early, and don't try anything funny (players so bad it probably won't work) and your should be fine

Actually DON'T play limit.. You get a lot more suckouts and bad beats.. So probably not the best idea for you

Conversely, it can be easy to increase your bankroll by playing good at this very beatable level. Players here will call very wide so if you play tight, without bluffing, and wait for your big hands, you can do well here. Plus the vpps accumulate faster imo.

This is coming from a cash preferential person though.

I would recommend Staying with the 25cent 45 man games as you are getting used to the play in them. I find it hard to flip flop between play in cash games and play in the sit and goes.

if you're into MTT's just stick with the conservative 100 buyin rule and you will be a winner winner chicken dinner.

Ex for Stars:


1st Tier: $0.10 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $0.00 - $10.00+
2nd Tier: $0.25 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $25.00 +
3rd Tier: $0.55 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $55.00 +
4th Tier: $1.10 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $110.00+
5th Tier: $1.35 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $135.00+
6th Tier: $2.20 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $220.00+
7th Tier: $2.75 buyins Min. Br Requirement: $275.00+


annnnnd so on.

dont sit with 80 cents on a 1/2 cents table, you dont have nearly enough in your stack to aggress someone out on the flop, 80 cents is either all-in or fold preflop 95% of the time.

holdem your tilt and early finishes isn't going to matter what we suggest until you can control both. Tilt we can help by getting into a ventrilo/teamspeak or skype chat with friends! Early finishes acan be helped by watching Spacegravy videos and following good opening hand ranges at all levels and bb's as he now has put out video three!
Until you can control your obv need to play hands that you shouldn't be............ don't play! If this is harsh I'm sorry but if you are not learning and finding your leaks and plugging them then we can't help......... and we are here to help!
