Well , I was like 25 dollars, lets turn it into a lot of money or just go bankrupt, there aren't any decent tourneys on the client so it was only cashtable or sng. I'm not much of a sng go player so I went on the cashgames. Played over my limit so 25 dollar on 25 / 50 , doubled pretty fast and doubled again after.
Went on to the 50 / 1 table and stayed there for an hour , doubled again , went to 200$ already.. Client wasn't giving me bad beats, went all in with the best hand preflop - post flop every time.. Just didn't run bad (good luck? good client? who will tell ) , went back to my old games which were HU games , doubled again vs some guy to go 300 , won another 50 of him and left..
Said to myself, i want to experience the 2 / 4 table for one round, managed to flop a full house in it and take down a 260 dollar pot which leaves my bankroll at 470 dollars, all in one day on about 5 hours of luck / fun / skill , hope to continue though I'm going to apply some bankroll management now. Don't want to waste this again
Kind regards and many thanks for the free bankroll

congratulations, that was nice. dont play at 2/4 table, you will only lose all your bankroll. stay at smaller tables for a while and then go up. i wish you good luck in your play , hope you win more. good luck.

Posted by vila: I'm up to 1 K already guys , it's still going nice , i won't play at 2/4 anymore , was just for the kick
Yeh you gotta be careful.. I used to play like this all the time, rocket up from $50-$1,000 in a night or two etc.. But inevitably you lose it all as well.. Don't matter how well you play either or how careful you are.. Just say you're at 2/4 with $450 and you wake up with AA, guy before you has shoved allin for $500, snap call right ? he flips KK, flop come xxK, no help on turn or river. S**T - just lost $450 just like that.. Then you think - i wanna get that back- so you stay at 2/4 or even move up to 3/6 get another sick beat and bingo bango it's all over. Soon as you hit a cooler you're fked..
I've finally started applying BRM myself, and currently multi-tabling nl10 - 4 tables on PKR - making around $50 /day so that's ok. And it's nice to be able to lose 200 big blinds on a beat and just reload and not worry or tilt over it because i got plenty of buyins left
Anyway. In saying all that ^, I'd still like to say congrats and GL

great job, you go on play like you do and dont make mistakes, dont go tilting your play and you may get a very big baknroll whih will tick in for a time, when you begin to lose i suggest you take a break from the play.
