Hi, I saw this thread 2 days ago and decided to open an Big Bet Poker account and play those freerolls 8man, I win some and then got into NLHoldem and Omaha Hi/Lo 0.02/0.04 and I won a lot. I realy recommend Omaha Hi/Lo I played 2 tables, the first I entered with $2.xx and left with $17, the next day with already $28 on the bankroll entered with $5 and left with $20, if you play good Hi/Lo it's very easy, good luck

nice job! never thought u gonna make it cos u struggled for a long while. but with couple cents its pretty hard i can imagine. now its just a matter of time i guess you still play NL4 and try to keep on bankrollmanagement or did u move in limit ?

I got a little inspired by this thread last night and played 12 hours straight.
Got to $1-2 and busted 3 times, 4th time I managed to get a "startroll" of $12 out of it.
Then I just grinded 2 tables of $0,02/0,04 blinds NL for a couple of hours playing tournament style (smallball with valuebets, folding to ANY pressure unless I'm 99% sure I'm 70%+ to win pot, try to avoid any kind of allin-situation) to keep variance low.
Got to $20 quite easily. Then the cards "never" hit for 50 hands and I got on tilt when I got badbeat allin preflop with AA. This only hurt me $3 because of my tactic, but it put me on tilt like a rabid monkey and 5 minutes later I was broke again
I think $100 in 24 hours should be manageable if you freeroll to $2 and take shots to get to $10-20 and start over if u don't get there. Once you get a roll of $25 (5 buyins of $4) risk of ruin should be incredibly low and winrate incredibly high and getting to this point as fast as possible is kind of "key".
Playing a couple of hours a day it should be manageable in a week.
