So, I was sitting there with $0,18 and entered a freeroll where I got $0,05 so I entered a cash game table with $0,23 ($0,20 minimum) and managed to double that up. I then kept playing the cash game tables and moved up in limits and now by only playing cash game, I have a nice solid $66 bankroll Big Smile Dollar Dollar Dollar So now it's time to go to bed before I blow it all away!

I started today at Yatching poker, and I made a 5th place on a Freeroll, I got $1.05... But I only have $5 at my bankroll...
I hope I can hit the $50's like you did...

Very nice run mate, you can definately continue making some really nice money on these micro limits from nothing.

Keep us posted on your evolution and make sure to recognize tilt when it will come and take a break then Blink

Wow, thats a really impressive run in one session. Starting this low and building it up that way is really nice. Grats to you, very well done. Keep it going this way Thumbs Up
(But also have a look now at good bankroll management)

Wow the story started so sad with "So, I was sitting there with $0,18"
But the story ended great an 66 Dollar

But be carefull if you keep playing cashgames 66 isnt that solid Blink

Impressive run indeed, I wonder at which poker site you realised this session.
And at which level did you play the cash games ?
Hope you look at your Bankroll Management or your profit could be gone before you know it.

Thank you all for your very nice words! As you might imagine, I'm pretty happy with this myself!

So, to answer a few questions that's come up:

Poker site: Party Poker

Limits: Started at Limit Hold'em (I only play limit on cash games) at $0.02/0.04 (that's $0.01/0.02 in blinds). I made my $0.23 into just over $1 and then moved up to $0.05/0.10 (blinds $0.02/0.05). I made that into just over $3 and then moved up to $0.10/0.20 (blinds $0.05/0.10). Made that into $10 and then moved on to $0.15/0.30 (blinds $0.07/0.15). Made that into $15 and moved on to $0.25/0.50 (blinds $0.10/0.25). Made that into $25 and moved up to $0.50/1.00 (blinds $0.25/0.50). Made that into $40 and then moved up to $1/2 (blinds $0.50/1.00) and made that into my $66.

And before you say anything. I know that I did move up way to early and I should have applied proper bankroll management but I figured that since I played with the houses money (which it pretty much was) I might as well go for it. Today I will start applying my bankroll management and don't play more then my bankroll can handle if I would lose.

I'm hoping to make this into a nice $100 bankroll at which point I'll probably cash out about $80 I think and try to rebuild with the $20 I have left.

I always enjoy reading success stories from poker, that have
happened in cases like yours. And it was a very good one.
Well done, keep that rhythm.

And to think in how many sites i have left such amounts.

Sure you can see it like that way "playing with the money from the house"

But i think you ll be doing the same in the future , not following a good bankrollmanagement as this has proven the opposite :

MAKING A BIG PROFIT BY NOT FOLLOWING A BANKROLLMANAGEMENT

For me an increase in bankroll from 0.18$ to 66$ is only possible by :

1 Winning 1rst price in a big freeroll (200$ or more)

2 playing with your entire bankroll and win a lot of times in a row, like you describe above..

3 finding another players who sends you the money to your account (I once got 5$ from another player so it s possible)


If you wanne play further with a good bankrollmanagement I wish you GL and a lot of patience....

Well, this far today I've made just over a $6 profit. I hope to make into a $10 profit and then I'll call it a day =)

Just to inform you that one day luck will be on a holliday for you.

Maybe a good idea for you to read the thread of downswing.

you make almost 10% profit versus your bankroll and then even hope to win even 4$ more...

at what stakes are you playing at the moment ???

Yeah I'm well aware of that. I recently suffered quite a big down swing but I managed to recover as you can see in this thread.

Today I've dedicated to MTTs and I'm playing all the freerolls (just to pass time while waiting for other tourneys) and all the fast MTTs except rebuys for $1-3.

Very good performance to build your BR up like that. It always makes one feel good to achieve the task of building a BR from basically nothing. I remember the first time I wona freerol on Fulltilt with no BR and I had a whole $8 and change. I never managed $8 so well in my life. I don't know what it is that gives one thrill or a sense of wholeness by doing this.

Again Congrats and Good Luck! Hope you triple it over and over. Love to hear Mobsters share their stories!

I think you should try to play Sit & Go Thats easier to get the goal of 100$ I think

Well, I'm not all that good when it comes to Sit & Go's so I never really play them. I'm more of a Cash/MTT player.

------------
So, this day was dedicated for MTT's. Unfortunantly they didn't go all that well so I only managed to break even. So I tryed my luck at the cash game tables for about an hour or so and I managed to turn my break even result into a $12 profit.

So all and all, I started the day with $66 and now I'm ending it with $78.13, that's a $12,13 profit.

If I can keep this up, I'll have my $100 in no time Tongue And to think it all started out as $0.23 freeroll winnings Big Smile
