TY FOR THE SUPPORT GUYS. Maybe one day i will be the furguson of pp lol.

I realize I have many issues with my game that need improving. And it's so hard to run good in such large field mtts so I can't risk going bust again with small role.

really do appreciate the support for this big degen lol... I need it :P




Update today:

decision1)no more shots at any mtts for money until i get to at least 10 dollars and a 1 buck shot is worth it.
#2)no shots at 5-10 limit until i have minimum 20 buyins for that event=4bucks min to take a shot with 50cents.
#3)keep playing all the freerolls mtts i can hoping to score a top place to accelerate my br, these are no risk and good reward so might as well play them.

These rules are vvimportant and i put them out there to be/hold myself accountable and hopefuly stick to them and not tilt when trying to grow a role.


-today i woke up with 1.78 in account and continue trying these limit holdem 2-4cent b/c although i am not trad a limit player I feel i am better then most other players at this level and they offer the lowest buyin as well. So i will keep buying into short tables if I can with 20 c looking to double and repeat.

-I currently sit at 3.16 today from this.
-I am currently in the 8thousand player 300buck freeroll again and I'm in the money.

Wish me luck and rail me if you wish. 524 plrs left so i am in a decent stack and guarenteed at least 12c now 15c as I just cracked 500 while writing this.


Small baby steps every day that's the plan.

and resisting stupid shotaking against large fields or volatile 5-10c limit with no role!!!

Yes, this is what I've been trying to do for the past 5 months. I always ended up losing my mini br though because I played too many hands and did not stick to .10 tourneys. I got 29th in the Daily Dollar and $20 for that on the 13th . Then I got better at .1/.2 NL and recover $6 out of my $18 down from previous losses. I finally was a winning at this level...then various episodes began to tilt me. My height of $28 was destroyed in 3 days. Back to freerolling for me.

Good luck. Don't let tilt get you.

After this freeroll score I have been contemplating what to do/what is the best games to play for my game. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

update: last few days went from 25 ish to 100 today. Played a marathon 24hr session the other day, mostly 50plr sng's for 3 dollar buy in with moderate success.

-slightly up from 6dollar Hu sng's and 6dollar 1 table sngs as well, finished the day with two 1st place finishes to increase the bankroll.

-my early success in limit holdem is hitting a snag, probably because I am playing these other events as well so its hard to be good at everything.
-Contrary to the past I'm staying away from cash game nl for the time being b/c losing real money can be the most tilting, plus these games are probably tougher than all the others.

cliffs:

up to 100dollars but not sure where to go from here from a strategy point.

zero-$100 complete.

I'd stick to low limit SNGs and <180 player MTTs until you grow the roll over $250 IMPO. Obviously, whatever you want is what you want =).

UPDATE:

before I start another long grind lol.

I currently sit at $380 wich all and all is pretty good and things are going in the right direction.

I have been taking some mtt shots and my best score was 3rd for 300 in a 2k guarentee.
I am also having decent success now at the 11dollar 1table sng's and the 6dollar heads up sngs.

the heads up on party are insane matches of chicken. I find against almost everyone every time there is an a high board or paired board the action gets insane even with garbage hands lol.

For the most part I have been staying away from cash games with my sng and mtt success.

Was at 500 after the big score but hit abit of a downswing. mtt stats look alittle strange probably b/c of some shot taking. Like winning at low buyins consistently and then trying a big buy in and losing and/or winning skews the graph.


All and all I'm relatively happy with my progress so far and hope for it to continue

I would put up the sharkscope graphs but I'm not sure how to transfer them right now

Aren't those $5+$1 HUSNGs at party?

Unbeatable fee imo :s

With a bankroll like that you could easily ground out the $5's at a site with rakeback and only $0.25 fee

great read and prolly the best challenge in here.
it seems like you do pretty well at mtts. so why not stick to those with good BRM (like 100 BIs)?
gl man and keep us updated
