***Moved to appropriate forum heading*****

Right although I know it is possible to do this I am going to try. Chris Ferguson said he managed to come from freerolls to " actual buy " games, He says his theory works because he only played to a VERY VERY s bank roll ( only played to 0.05% of hi
s BR ) and he had very good BRM ( Which I don't ) but with this I hope to gain experience by doing this and knowing the importance of keeping money.

I have withdrawed all my winnings from yesterday and I don't have a dime left. If I manage to do this I'll be able to say thank you to Chris Ferguson. lol!

Right my first months goal

June-July

1. I am going to get at least a $10 winnings from freerolling ( PSO, Pokerstop) or any other freerolls I can get my hands on. Currently I have the $100k freeroll tickets which are good start.

2. after trying to achieve this goal of reaching my $10 from freerolling I'm going enter the 25-50c SnG and try to achieve a $30-40.
s.
I know that it's going to take a long time but I am willing and determined to do this, and determination get's you places.

I'll get this up to date with information and to let you know how I am getting on,

Just for your info
At .25c you need a bankroll of $27 and at .50c you need a BR of $52

I know that it's going to take a long time but I am willing and determined to do this, and determination get's you places.

I'll get this up to date with information and to let you know how I am getting on,
So if you want to do it right, keep playing freerolls until you've reached $30
Than you can play .25c SnG's, but if you fall to $20, go back to freerolls

Good luck

It's certainly possible to build a BR from nothing - It's been done, by lots of peeps besides me.

I used to play a lot of the .02 turbo's, those really test your patience. There are always the .10 games as well, when you have a limited BR these are another option.

Good luck with your challenge.

I would like to know who deleted my post and why?
It was very good information on BR management

That was totally uncalled for
Continue being obnoxious
