First Months BankRoll - Sat May 14, 2011, 08:15 AM

First of all i just did this to try beat Chris F first / days / weeks month bankroll challenge id seen on TV and to see how much i could make for free in month.
Then I promised my self after First month I'd keep going with free-rolls in-till i hit $50, to buildup bankroll, then play for money after that target (keep ahead of downswings etc),
well im not going to spend money/vpp in till i hit $50.00, and then split into 2 POTS/ money accounts on same 0HighTime0 Account.
1; $25.00 savings / winnings
2; $25.00 to play for money/vpp
all money etc from POT #1 will stay in POT #1 ( only use if needed to top up POT #2 )
all winnings from POT #2 will go in to POT #1

Update; 02.03.2012
$US 25.24
Well After 10 months of just playing freerolls to build my bank roll from $00.00, I have finally made it over US$25 after Feb's Openleague.
Its been slower than i thought after the main source's of making money dried up after NZ&AUS Div 2 in July/August last year, and $250 NZ give away stopped, its been just Open league and WR2 tourneys, too make money with out spending money, Now there's The Big Game NZ regional Games each night and BRM freerolls Leaderboard i just found (wish id found earlier), that will help speed up end goal.
Well I'm half way too my $50 mark/goal, all this grinding / practice be good for when i finally spend money too make money. Then look out

All Thee Best

That's really amazing 0HighTImes0. Really, really cool. That's some serious commitment to building your roll, and I'm glad that you're seeing some serious progress. Keep up the great work.

Hi High TImes!

When I first started on PS a few yrs ago, that's how I started my bankroll. I built up $25 from freerolls, then started into the dime/quarter and 50 cent games.

Good luck at the tables.
