Hi there and welcome to the forums! No worries about your English, I understand 99% of what you want to say
So, to your question. Yes, it is definitely possible to take a bankroll from $0 to a decent amount of money. All you really need is patience. I've done this a bunch of times and the key thing is to know what you're good at. Here's a short guide with steps on how to do it:
1. Grind the freerolls, find the most top value ones and play those as much as possible! Don't care about freerolls for entries into MTT's, they are in most cases difficult to win (due to all the bingo players) and you may not even get anything from it. Regular cash-paying freerolls actually gives you something when you get in the money.
2. When you've reached a decent amount (I waited until I had $5 but if you're feeling impatient, even a small amount such as $0.50 would be enough if you get lucky in the beginning), start grinding the nano-stakes single table SnG's and DoN's. Try to grow your bankroll to about 50 BI's. Keep on grinding the same level.
3. When you reach 50 BI's for the next level, jump up and take a shot. Now, considering you have a very small bankroll, if you would fall under the 50 BI limit on the 2nd level, go back down to the previous one. No need to waste another 5 BI's if you can avoid it.
4. When you've established yourself on the 2nd level, just repeat the following steps.
This is a very basic strategy that will, in the long run, take your bankroll to at least a small amount of money as long as you can keep a ROI that is equal to or bigger then 100. If you have a ROI at 100, your profits will come from rakeback and bonuses.
If you have any questions, just feel free to ask here in the forums If you want to, I could give you some coaching at how to take your bankroll from $0 to about $20. It will take a lot of time but it is possible! If you want my coaching, you could just contact me on skype, my username there is "tw-erik"

Get a couple of no deposit bonus to get you started. Use bankroll management with them of course and try to make as much of it as you can. Try different variations also. If you lose thats not biggie You will have gained some experience out of it. Take another bonus and go on Good luck.

I've been running up my bankroll from 0$ to 30/40$ per month. I'm not a top player or even an expert poker player here's my opinion:
You should start by playing the freeroll tournaments that bankrollmob offers in fulltilt and pokerstars. The fulltilt option is clearly the best, since the blinds are regular (10 min). This will give you more room to wait for the bingo players to do their thing. That won't happen at pokerstars because the blinds are turbo (5 min), but you should always give them a try.
I believe these are the best tournaments free available, in poker sites that are reliable.
When I get my bankroll up like to one dollar or so, I "grind" the 0.25 cents 45-man sng at pokerstars. Play ABC poker and you should get a boost on the bankroll.
After I get to 5 dollars, I play 0,50 cents 9-max one table sng at Pokerstars. That's my favourite format and the one where I've been making money.

Great! I might not be able to accept tonight (going to bed soon) but I'll be sure to do it tomorrow!
They are available, I'm just not sure about the settings. I mainly play at PartyPoker and I'm not logged on to Poker Stars more then 1-2 times a month just to look around a little bit. I'm thinking about moving there but I'm not sure yet. Anyway, the BRM freerolls are available on the eu version, I've seen them there so it shouldn't be a problem

one thing that i am absolutely sure is that it is totally possible to make your bankroll from sth to $0 it's a lot easier and no skills are required, now if you want to go the other way around- surely the safest way to go is to take the no deposit bonuses available and start grinding the freerolls.
