So I have lost about $40 this week and need to start playing profitable poker. Im hoping that playing very low stakes .25 45 man will get me some top 3 finishes and some confidence moving forward. Some profit would be nice too .

To keep me motivated and on track I will keep this forum updated daily.

Starting Bankroll: $ 8.99


Here we go!

(01)---488??????---31/45---$0.00---$8.74
(02)---488760722---20/45---$0.00---$8.49
(03)---488764979---22/45---$0.00---$8.24 QQ v 8 10s he hits quad 8's pissed me off to no end

Any tips for these kind of tourneys?

Also what do you guys like better 45 man or 90 man turbo?

Wish there was a 45 man turbo!

Silken, I love the 45 man reg because you can play for 1 hr and even if you dont get a hand can fade 50% of the field. This gives you lots of time to recognise and exploit the donkeys. 90% of online players are losing players so find them, trap them and stack them.

Gidee Up!

Some how my math does not make sense. Started with 8.99, played 7 .25 tourneys so

8.99 - 1.75 = 7.24

then a third place finish worth 1.70

7.24 + 1.70 = 8.94

But how did I end up at 9.19

You forgot to subtract your buyin: 7.49 + (1.70 - 25) = 8.94

(13)---07/45---$0.36---$12.32 <------- New

Current Bankroll: 12.32

Things have been going great . Finally playing profitable poker. Im really excited about this challenge cause i believe i will be much better after im done grinding 100 of these. Though outside of these sit and go's i have been playing NLHE 6 max 1 cent, 2 cent. I love the action and some of the big wins i have got. But over all im losing alot of money in that. So im going to try to only play these tourneys for awhile its going to be hard not to sit up at a cash game though. But im determined to be profitable so i will do it.

Thanks everyone

See you at the tables!
