What do you think?
I'm playing micro/low minutes in Full Tilt Poker, and I can play my best poker and take the day like 2/3 buy ins up, but with my best poker I can take 2/3 buy ins down because of the enormous bad beats (man, really, I never seen something like this with 1/2 outs and a miracle river and then goes 5$ in just one card)
Mtt? Low buy in sucks you can take 13th of 280 players and your profit is 5/6$
SNG, is the best way to increase I guess, right now my strategy is to play 2 in at the same time, I can take it with no problems.

The double or Nothings are pretty good for building a bankroll, just ask Doomdy
I myself do like what you've said - 2x 6 Max SnG's. It's very rare I don't finish in the top 3 and most of the time I cash in the top 2. At the lower stakes you just need to grind it out till you can move up. I'm not a fan of building a bankroll playing cash games at low stakes, there's just too many village idiots out there! My advice would be to build up your roll playing SnG's until you have enough to play NL25, using correct bankroll management!

Yeah dont bother with cheeseburger stakes, its just a dead end and u have to put more work in down there than up higher stakes, like yesterday i pickup AA on the button after a Middle position player limps in, i raise he snap calls im like alright..
Flop comes down 6 2 2 im thinking this is a good flop for me i want to protect my hand i bet out almost pot bet, he 3bets me all in, i have to call in that spot, he shows 8 2 off suit, i mean wtf.

best way to increase the bankroll at the beginning is masstabling lower limits Fixed limit. like 20 tables fullring. you will gain some nice cash iup to 15/30 cent blinds with abc poker only. Then play sngs or cashgame. and choose a site with rakeback.

Rakeback FTW imho.

Perhaps SNGs will be best way to increase bankroll. Pot limit omaha too, but you must be very patient at low stakes. Almost never less than 4 players in pot. They raose and reraise with average cards and then tzhey hit hard at flop.
