Hey Guys / Girls

Hows it going?

I have been playing poker since 2 years now, started playing live cash games and tourneys and recently i have been taking keen interest in playing poker online since i am unable to give enough time to live poker because of my working hours.

I started playing micro n low SnG's to build my bankroll. Is it a right way to start? please post your suggestions on how should i build my bankroll. My main interests are Tourneys and SnG's.

Also please give me your suggestions as where from and how can i improve my online poker game

Cheers

I can only tell you how I done it.

First the bad way:

I deposited £20 and played $5.50 STT's where I was crushing elsewhere, needless to say I lost the lot. Only when I done a £30 player transfer on i-poker that was repaid to myself on here did I come back.

I started playing the old $1.10 D2N's for quite a few games and built up my roll to around $150. When the D2N's changed I moved to Limit STT's. Not because I'm bad at the new 50/fifty's it's just that's the way it went. I like limit although I wouldn't say I'm a great player but I am a decent STT player and combining the 2 in Limit STT's has seen my bankroll increase very well. I now play $3.50 to $7 Limit STT's although I may have to move back to NL as there's not a great selection available at higher stakes.

If I were to do it from a freeroll (which I've done on a few sites) I'd play freerolls until I had one buy in for one 50/fifty. I'd take a shot and drop back to freerolls if I lost but stay in them until I had enough to move to regular STT's. I'd steer clear of the 25 cents 45 man STT's as there's just too high a variance in these, no matter how good you are there are always players that will crack your AA with 72o. I would play the $50 and $100 added tournies though in the MTT tab.

this is way it goes....for start play micros tournament different structure
0.10 45man
0.10 360 man
0.10 1kplayers fiel

so try to play like 10 time of every option it is like 3$
so go grab statistic and see wat is type a tournament you are most succesive on

like 0.10 360
so play like 5 tounrmanet each day its no more th0.5$

play it about one month and you will be able to play 1.10$ because in that month you will earn about 130-200$ profit if you are eligible to play 1.10 so next month it is about 450$ it isnt enough for life still but than
once in week play 8.80 HIT a ITM and you will be no worry....sorry for my bad English wish you all the best.... .

i just wanna to say...never play more than 5-7% of you bankroll buyINs

Hi Arj1985!

Welcome to the forum. Here's a link that will help to get you familiar with the different things that PSO has to offer.

When I first started playing online, I started with the astronomer freerolls and the PSO leagues. I then moved to the micro mtt's and sng's. Make sure that you use good bankroll management in the games that you play and it is possible to build a bankroll from scratch.

Good luck at the tables.

You're well bankrolled for $1.50 STT's both 6 and 9 man and enough to take a stab at $3.50 although keep an eye on that roll. If anything $3.50 will be slightly easier as more players will have a clue and bad beats will happen less frequently.

I have a far greater bankroll and play $3.50 and $7.00 but I multi table these in batches of 6-10 so I need a far bigger roll to take any swings. As I've said on other threads, I have a 14% ROI in these yet have lost 13 straight 6 max STT's in a row. Swings will happen no matter how well you play. Just keep a careful eye on your balance, it's still at a low amount.

Just work on one game at a time and give it your full focus, when you find that winning formula you can then multiply your tables up.
