G'day mates

Well I am forcing myself NOT to try and take anymore attempted short cuts in order to move up the stakes early. I am practicing my bankroll management strategy by playing the 0.01/0.02 NL tables.
I am also mixing things up a bit by playing small buy in Mtt's.
The combo work out well for me earlier today.
most likely it will be tomorrow before I play another session.
wishing you all the best
be cool

C'mon Ronin, I'm sure you can get up and build up a nice bankroll.

I think the advices that 3pokeronly has gave to you are pretty good. You need to keep bankroll management because variance might lead you to bankrupcy.

I would add to the 3pokeronly suggestions that if you want to get the promo for the 100K tournaments at PokerStars you can not cash out, or the promo will be removed from your user.

Gl man!



Hi Plexo, I totally agree, then what you do is wait 24 hours and then re-deposit the $20.00 with the 100K code and like magic another 30 days!! Although as you say as soon as you cash out again you will lose the ticket, again.

Also they pointed out that, on the speed tables in general players pay the blinds more then the standard 1 time per rotation.


Hey Ronin could you look for the thread you said this was from.. I started thinking about this and I think it makes no sense .. I might be missing something though... so I'd like to see the mathematical examples you talked about ..

Hi djp, some of this seems to make sense, if players are busting out or moving more frequently due to the nature of the game, if the tables are short the blinds would come round quicker and "Zoom" games on PS has some short term variance which is still within "normal" %'s, so in any of these circumstance's someone could come up with some statistics to back up the more than 1 blind per round figure, this would only be "local", so to speak, and all players you face would be facing something almost entirely similar.

G'day mates

Well I just finished a session of poker grinding.
Played both the cash tables and the hot $0.55
It proved to be a profitable session.

Started the last session with $14.59
My bankroll is now $17.15

It is not a fortune but it is at least moving in the correct upwardly direction.
played another session and I did allright.
I will update again later.
best wishes to you all

A profit a day keeps the bad feelings away!

Your doing well now. I know grinding small amounts gets annoying but it will increase slowly and surely. Keep at it. Smile

You are of course correct.
grinding small amounts on the lowest limits is very annoying.
However it must be down to stay withing proper bankroll management.
I will be very glad when I can move up in the stakes legitimately.
it will come, i just need to be patient and play proper poker.
be cool

It's a blog so we demand at least a daily update. Blink Looks like it's going to be a while before I get near or pass your bankroll. First one to 100 by Xmas wins a super model!


1 super model please, delivery address is 1st floor, By the Sea, Auckland, New Zealand.

Please ensure it is a new model, not pre-owned by Rod Stewart, if it is over six foot tall, I will have to take it round the back, and as I am only 5' 7" her boobs should be about my face height, which is all good, if she can bring beer and a pizza as well, you will always be a leg end.

3P (showering and shaving in preparation as I type) out.

Well Ronin, could not visit the site for a couple of days.

Read back the missed posts and noticed your bankroll-loss (when you did not follw your rules)
Well I also saw some nice advise from fellow mobsters and you know we all support you.

I am also convinced that yor pokerskills are good enough to be a winning player as long as you stick to the rules.

And you know... if needed I am always available to give you a bankroll, as long as you stick to the BR-rules as I am certain your pokerskills are better than mine.

G'day mate

Wow, I do not not what to say.
Thank you does not seem like enough.
It is such I kind offer, and your words of support really make me feel ashamed.
I was unable to sleep last night, and had no choice but to take my morphine for my back.
Took 2 tablets and about an hour later was still awake, so I decided to play some poker.
I think it was about 10:30 pm.
I never even considered that I was most likely high and definately impaired in my thinking.

Started out well so decided to move up the stakes then dropped 2 buy ins of $10 each.
dropped back down and did not even have a full buy in for the 0.01/0.02 NL table.
I started with $1.38 USD or something around there.
I played till about 2:30am then had to stop, as I was feeling sick and wanted to sleep.

I started with a bankroll of $17.15 USD
grinded it up above $20 and then in my morphine induced stuper, decided I was a poker superman.
Moved up and discovered everyone had kryptonite.
I finished the night with a huge loss.

My new bankroll is now $6.47 USD

I am ashamed of myself Aww crap!
I have decided to add a new rule to my list.

New #1 rule: Do NOT play poker for at least 4 hours after taking any perscription pain medication.

I am NOT asking you for any money but I really appreciate the offer.
Thank you for being a truly kind fellow mobster mate.
If I can ever do anything for you just ask.
wishing you all the best!

Personally I find that comment to be unnecessary. If Ronin is sharing with us his struggles I think he feels bad enough as it is without somebody asking this type of question. Every poker player has his ups and downs and battles with variance, tilt and outside factors which influence the quality of his play, to be on pain killers besides that must be very tough to control. Don't judge someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes.

Ronin, I don't have anything on Pstars but if you have an account on 888 I'll ship you some funds there, just let me know your nick, I'm having a good upswing there right now.

Well he is an update.
I just played a session in which I was totally card dead.
Despite that I remained calm and patient, I waited for card for a long time then mad a profit.

The new current bankroll is now $7.48 USD

Will be able to play again in about 4 hours so I will update again later.

Wish you all luck, but you still have to stick to your bankroll managment, its very hard i know, but as you said at the bigging of your thread, good players who only manage they´r account with love, dont do rush playing to move up @ level or ammount of money, just stick to 20-40Buy ins rule.

Ten i Would advice you to play only very low MTT sit and goes, Like 50 cent turbos, and 25 cent MTT sit and goes.
I see a lot of players grinding there a lot of tables and still miss play they´r hands properly. plus there is a lot more fishes than you imagin.

GL mate, and i hope u a good health Smile

I have to admit I am entertain! Smile and wish the best for you! But I was just wondering when I have read this blog that u make a lot of goals and I think you are breaking them too often to make your bankroll grow! Im sorry maybe it was maybe little bit wrong to judge that rule and that rule is not mine to judge! (But rules are only meant to break(at least for me)) I was just pointing out that hopefully you will try to stick to the rules you got yourself to make cash Blink and im sorry if I offended you in somehow was not the point Smile but I don't have any idea about making goals and challenges maybe I will make a blog also myself to try that out! But its hard to make goals when you dont know what will happen in 2014 and so on... Maybe the goal could be that I make a huge volume on sng's per month or so does not matter how I run?

Hi Ronin, morning all, I am going to trot out and old saying "a change is a as good as a rest", I think changing up your game for a few days, try playing 90-360, 25-50c SNG's, your patience and skill set should get a +ROI and maybe a couple of good scores to boost the BR, then switch to a $1 MTT after you have had a good nights sleep, the pain is under control and you feel up to a four hour (things going well) slog to the real money.

As an aside, take the opiates as prescribed, maybe a little weed and coffee for the nausea and play some freeroll's, develop and maintain good habits (poker habits) while under the influence and then apply these to whatever game you choose (within BR management guidelines) this may add a safety net so that you can more effectively use your time on the felt, somewhat regardless of "other" issues.

All the best from somewhere very near the sea, Auck, NZ. 3P out.

dunno- to be honest i think hemuli has a fair point, Ronin try something different for once: write a goal, any goal will do- and stick to it! sure sounds simple, but from my personal experience i understand that it's a big ask sometimes. still try your best- figure out an achievable goal and stick to it. i.e.: deposit a min amount and only play within strict br management, whether it's cash or sng's. at least if you fail you will know that you've done your best- but i'm sure you're good enough to build upon this.

G'day mates

Thank you all very much for the well wishes.
I have been doing a lot of soul searching this afternoon.
Thought about why the hell I have be playing poker like a moron lately.
I have studied over 10K hands and I see so unbelievable BS mistakes being made.
Mistake I had stopped doing years ago.
Asked a friend who is a very successful semi pro poker play to look over some hand history's for me.
I offered to trade my services for his, I got some writing skills and was a graphic arts designer back in 1999-2000.
He blew me away with his answer, he literally said something like,
"Leonard ol' buddy, I would consider it and honor to look over your hand history's. No charge at all. Send me everyone you want, I look forward to learning from them."
His kind response just totally floored me.
The idea that he thought he could learn from me shocked me, I sent him every hand history I had for 2009 to present, that was 2 weeks ago.
Today he called me on the phone to tell me what he thinks is going on.
His call shock me up and got me thinking hard.
he said my entire game changed since April 2013 which is when I went into the hospital for 64 days and my life went to hell. He said I started playing a scared and desperate game of poker.
He thinks that perhaps with everything that has been going on in my life with the illness and possible cancer & other health issues that I have been facing that i am scared on a subconscious level and so my game has suffered greatly.
Well best wishes to you all

that's a very interesting reply form your friend- guess that "playing scared" is also influenced by the fact that you do play with a thin bankroll. imo another thing is that you played on higher limits back in the days, and you're itching to get back there quickly, very often you have too short roll to sustain a few swings and you're busto...you're kinda trying to take the short way, this also puts stress on your game...safer but i admit it a lot more boring route is to take things slow and stick to strict br management. sometimes dropping to even lower bi games helps- pressure is really off when you have 200 BI roll even when you're as sh1tty player as i am Big Smile
