So yesterday decided to deposit $10 on Bwin, luckily enough I've been off poker for about a month cause I thought the time I invested wasn't worth the $2 I get from freerolls! Haha, so long story short, played the daily dollar, re bought like 8 times,nt my proudest moment but luckily finished first for a cool $167 then due to some bad bankroll management I'm down to $90 ,decided to play a $54 tourney of which I bubbled cause some bozo had the nerve to call my four bet with 54 suited,got 2 pair on the flop and he floped the nut flush, and that was it Sleepy

Congrats on your win mate.. hope it's the first of many Smile

But yeah, you really need to work on your bankroll management... It's probably THE most important thing to learn to be successful at poker.

That's a really nice win, but I don't have the guts to rebuy so many times. Guess the rebuying was on your side. I normally will rebuy once, maybe twice based on how high the blinds have climbed by the point I was out.

I don't think I would have jumped into a &54 buyin, but what the hell you was on a run it sounds and chance was on your side. Better Luck with the remaider of your BR.

That was really a bright example of wrong bankroll management
Buying for 54$ with that bankroll is a no go.
And the funny thing is you busted from 54, coincidence Smile

Nice finish though in the 1$ tourney Thumbs Up

Green - I once spent $90 on a $3 rebuy..... luckily, I won $3.5k, so it worked out ok Smile

pochui - an IQ of 26 would probably mean they were in a coma.... but even comatose people should have heard of Lesotho Smile

Mober - Yep. PERFECT example of poor bankroll management... at least he had the restraint not to donk the rest off straight after. The two biggest tests of a poker players discipline are after a big loss... and a big win. Let's hope you learn from this from_lesotho

------------
Oh, and one more observation.... You said you 4 bet and flopped 2 pair. So at the very best you had AK.... 4 betting anything other than aces or kings (at a push) is always asking for trouble.

.

where did u get that?
comatose patients never get their iq tested while they are in coma cos it cant be done.
iq of 26 corresponds to severe MR

SuperNoob.... I wasn't being entirely serious Smile

I know that an IQ of 70 means you are mentally retarded - trying to make the point that an IQ of 28 is probably impossible for anyone capable of moving, let alone operating a computer.

I am also aware that pochui wasn't being serious....

Congrats for your 1st place out there bro but the booh on your bankroll management... Why to play a 54$ buy-in tourney when you only get 90$ in your account? Shouldn't try to aim for the jackpot right away every time... or choose your jackpot more wisely Smile a 10$ BI well played would have got you a great prize... well better luck nect time Blink

Great stuff mate too bad for the decision to play at that limit...

Since you did good in the daily dollar my advice is of course to stick to it and build up your roll to at least 400 dollars until trying a higher limit tournament.

yeah there are lots of wild things in Lesotho, take a look at what i found there on my last visit:



who knows maybe if i visit the place more often i would find even more wildlife (though my prime goal was to look for quality melons for my blog)

HaHa nice up and down and gratz for your winning. A 1 buyin bankroll management is possible but hard to handle without enough luck Big Smile I hope in the future we can buy a suckout river insurance, then the 1 stack strategy is the next big thing...
