Can I make it with $5? - Mon Feb 27, 2012, 06:39 PM

Im going to start a blog on my potential journey out of 2NL into higher stakes.
Had a similar post on this in the past but I got derailed chasing a donk up to 50NL and tilting off my roll like a sucker.For those interested below is my last blog.
http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/for...enge%282NL-%29

Hopefully I get enough tonight to have 25 buyins (25x80cents=$20) and then I can follow safe bankroll management.

Will post a graph later tonight to show my cliff hopefully going upward
So I managed to turn 80 cents into $5 and hope to keep that trend going at 2NL for the rest of the night.

Current Bankroll: $5.03

P.s
My plan is to shortstack and start my own tables and leave once the main fish it busto or I am
not making any head way at that table and will start another.

Why???
I guess it's just an opinion right?
I started with NL10 and it worked fine

I also started short stack, I would leave when I doubled

congrats you did

i told that because i played beginner limit holdem lot of people willing to see flop in limit thats makes pot bigger being short stack there you will go showdon where some bigger stack with better card will fold their hand[usually if they play draw]

secong there is less reg in limit holdem because no reg want to play 12 table in limit [at least in lowest micro]

Different strokes for different folks,I know a lot of people that play limit to start off their rolls.
Just doesnt float my boat.Thanks for the advice though.

You guys are going to laugh at my graph! Almost 3 hands after busting a fish I will get a badbeat and back to square one.

Example:

PokerStars Hand #76338044190: Hold'em No Limit ($0.01/$0.02 USD) - 2012/02/27 21:03:55 PT [2012/02/28 0:03:55 ET]
Table 'Galene' 9-max Seat #8 is the button
Seat 1: IseeCookies ($3.17 in chips)
Seat 2: MarianRomano ($1.47 in chips)
Seat 3: T_Mai225 ($1.07 in chips)
Seat 5: nicolinoAK ($0.21 in chips)
Seat 7: 10krystian ($0.97 in chips)
Seat 8: nik.tur ($1.61 in chips)
Seat 9: kimbaze ($0.67 in chips)
kimbaze: posts small blind $0.01

KofR&R: sits out
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to IseeCookies [Ah Ad]
MarianRomano: raises $0.04 to $0.06
T_Mai225: folds
nicolinoAK: folds
10krystian: folds

kimbaze: calls $0.05
IseeCookies: raises $0.12 to $0.18
MarianRomano: raises $1.29 to $1.47 and is all-in
kimbaze: folds
IseeCookies: calls $1.29
*** FLOP *** [4h 7s 4s]
*** TURN *** [4h 7s 4s] [6d]
*** RIVER *** [4h 7s 4s 6d] [Qd]
*** SHOW DOWN ***
IseeCookies: shows [Ah Ad] (two pair, Aces and Fours)
MarianRomano: shows [Qs Qc] (a full house, Queens full of Fours)
MarianRomano collected $2.90 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $3 | Rake $0.10
Board [4h 7s 4s 6d Qd]
Seat 1: IseeCookies (big blind) showed [Ah Ad] and lost with two pair, Aces and Fours
Seat 2: MarianRomano showed [Qs Qc] and won ($2.90) with a full house, Queens full of Fours
Seat 3: T_Mai225 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 5: nicolinoAK folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 7: 10krystian folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 8: nik.tur (button) folded before Flop (didn't bet)
