TY Turbo (and B1gfoot) for the nice storys. I allways read them and try to learn from it. Learned a lot of Turbo's agression and use it now in my play (not too much cos donkeys think raising means you have a bad hand ) Also the mago ''if you enter a pot RAISE'', i use a lot, especcially in the doubles i play its very important i think. When blinds go up its 99% ''raise or fold'' for me.
@ Turbo: Somehow (correct me if i am wrong) i see you as a lazzy (i dont know a good word for it) player (no offend ill explain ) I think you also know about urself you can beat higher levels. I think you know you can make more money if ur playin 1 step higher. But for some reason you dont, you like the winnings at ur level and the extra bonusses and rakeback. I am not saying u do it wrong cos ur a better player then me, but i think you know this also (am i wrong?). Littl bit the same as me, my roi at $20 is higher then $10, but for some reason i play $10 in most cases Its just the way i see you but for sure ur doin great and you go up in limits within a year i guess
@ B1gfoot: I have the same problem, i dont open up when blinds go up, just want to get ITM. I know you have to play for victory but for some reason i am too scared, dont want to put my entire tourney on play. This is sometin i have to work on

Posted by M3turbo: Hey guy's I just wonna share/brag about my Party Poker bankroll from BRM. It's not a fortune but comming from 25$ the 10th December im proud to say that im now at 3K $ to be exact 3171,91 . I have build a couple of bankroll through my pokertime but all the other times I build and withdrawn so I never got to play higher limits only low limit with all the fishes a bit chicken I know but in this way I kept it as a fun hobby and also in that way im allways the winner But this time should be different and I decided to build up a roll that would be a steady roll for NL200 which is 4000$ after my bankroll management. Even though I decided that this time I wouldn't withdraw any money I couldnt keep away so I have withdraw 1000$ just to feel/taste my winnings. Looking back if I hadn't made that withdraw I would be at my goal now 4K$ but f it at the games im playing now 800$ is just a couple of days More wants more and I have now set a new goal I wonna become a regular/have a steady roll for NL1000 which would be 20.000$ or even more if I go after a dynamic bankroll management which perhaps would be smart but I will find out in time.
To end of this long post I will tell a litlle about my game:
Allways cash, I just searched my name on Sharkscope since December I have only played 7 tourneys and my ROI is at 307%
My cash games are allways short rings. 6 handed is my best game but HU is ok too.
Allways full buy-in LAG style.
My level right now is NL100 but often I multitable NL50 instead since the NL50 players have been so gentle to me but very soon probably next week I will start at NL200 cross your fingers for me

Congratulations for your testimonial. I think that the story and our progression in poker is very important to make us grow as a community. I wish you luck in tables (in every card rooms). In August I intend to begin again my poker career from the start with Nl10! Then maybe i will create my post too!

Hey all thanks for your kind words and a special shout out to acehighness, that's very kind words I like to believe I that I have a good heart, my view at life and fellow people has changed drastically the last 5-10 years in a good direction. That said you have to be a little bit evil(cold heartet) to grind a living/survive in the poker invironment but that doesn't mean you have to live as a cold heartet person.
