I don't give a **** if you believe me or not, I've got the room history and hand histories, but I'd really, rather not make you believe me.
But if you would have practived proper BR management then you would have never made that money in the first place, so think about it that way.

Re: Degen Stories....

once lost 5k on a single nba over by a half-point

the total was like 222.5

they had 150 after 3 quarters, needed a 73 point 4th.

they finished with a 72 point 4th, with a missed ft inside 5 seconds remaining

Re: Degen Stories....

Read Super System 1 and thought that I could play live poker for a living. Took cash advances out on my credit cards in excess of $20k and kept thinking I was gonna run good at some point and pay it back as I got deeper and deeper in the hole never actually setting aside a BR for poker or a plan, just playing and doing drugs and living a pretty fun existence. That run-on was like what my life was like kinda.

This was about 4 yrs ago. I've since actually became a very good winning poker player,never filed bankruptcy, still paying off the cards and actually considering going pro within the next year, once this debt is gone from over my head.

I like to consider this debt like the price of a school tuition since I did learn an awful lot and get alot of practice. I could have done this w/alot less peril and risk, but hey like Frank Sinatra said "I did it my way."

Who was the scumbag who missed the FT, Im sure u remember.

Did u ever find urself sitting in ur car in front of his mansion at like 4am with the smell of sweat and taco bell filling up the inside of ur car while the cold steel of the revolver made the cold sweats of ur plams feel warm and tingly, daydreaming of Vegas and the ****ing Mirage.

Re: Degen Stories....

Here's mine. Sorry in advance for my poor english.

2 years ago, back in the sweet time of Everest Poker, I had about $35k online. But the thing is I have some massive tilt issues. I was playing NL400, but could lost as low as 2 buyin, tilt my ass off, and go in NL5000. It went well sometimes (hit n' run FTW), but not always obv. So I cashed out a lot, lost a lot (about $15k), leaving myself with $3k or so online.

But before this, I bought some tickets for live tournies (500/300/200€). I managed to win the €500 for about €20k. I was back in business.

Glad and happy to be back i was thinking 'ok no more tilts, just grind overrolled and stfu'. I put some post-it and posters all over my room saying 'Tilt = broke = no more whores and parties' and stuff like that.
I gave the bills to a friend who transfered me on FTP. So I had about $30k online. He transfered me the money on the sunday after my win, and I started playing NL200 (yea because I play overrolled to avoid tilt now) around 8pm.

Exactly 40min later, after losing 3 buyins, I was in NL2000.
1 buyin lost later, I was on HU NL10k w/ Dustin Dirksen. After he kicked my ass for $8k, I was on HU NL20k w/ OMGClayAiken.

As I raised to $600 and sometimes 3bet to $1800, I gave a look to my poster and thought to myself 'Yea, I might have some tilt issues'.

Re: Degen Stories....

I dropped out of school and stopped going to work with a $100 roll and overdue bills. I was depressed and didn't give a ****. I also sucked at poker, but I read some crappy books and played tighter than all the 50/5 type players I was playing against....

I played 20 hours a day (so unhealthy, had no life at all, people thought I was dead) for about 6 months from 10nl to 50nl and $1 SNG's to $10 SNG's until I had about 10k and all bills paid. Happy degen story as the roll now approaches 100k just under 2 years later....

No graphs because I've played on all different sites and I was using poker edge, not poker tracker. Whether you believe me or not doesn't mean **** to me, I did it and am still doing it.

My friends remember when I had like a $400 roll and me talking about it, and now they know I'm making 7-15k per month. I know I did it, my parents know, my good friends know (although nobody knows how degen I was initially), and that's all that matters. A few online players I'm regularly in touch with know and none have ever suggested they don't believe it. Learn the game, use very very conservative BR management (I usually had about 50 buy-ins when moving up, and after 200nl I pretty much stopped moving up so i can't see myself ever going busto now). The only time I ever was doubting myself (after the initial tough part) was when I had my roll shrink from 9k to 7.5k during my worst 100nl run.


Approximate BR growth with stakes

$100 - $1000 = $1 SNG's, 10nl, some 25nl (8 months)

$1000 - $8000 = mostly 50nl, some 25nl and $8 and $5 SNG's (8 tabling) ( 2 months)

$8000 - $10,000 = 100nl (4 tabling) (2 weeks)

$10,000 - $40,000 = 200nl (6 tabling) (3 months)

$40,000 - $65,000 = mostly 200nl, some 400nl (8 tabling) (6 months)

$65,000 - ~80k = 70% 200nl, 30% mix of 400nl, 600nl, 1000nl, or 100nl on dry days) usually 8-12 tabling (4 months or so)


Always studying the game, always trying to get better. Be a hater if you want. Went to live with parents to grow roll rom 10k to 40k, moved back on my own and been paying all bills since.

Re: Degen Stories....

Got a friend who bought the french "poker for dummies" and decided to deposit 400 online. Of course he started out at 10/20 minbet and somewhat ran good and won like 10k. So he decided he was killing the game and lost everything he had at 200/400 NL. Funny part, he tells the story to a little group of friends, and everyone was like, "wow nice, from 400 to 10k in one day", and he was like, "yeah that book helped me a lot, good stuff in here".

Not a level, that's the last 2 years of my life.

I had some BR management problems in the first 1k, as a few times i got it up to like $700 and then tried playing 100nl (or one time martingaling blackjack) so a few times I got shot back from $700 or so down to $100 again. About 3 months in I was only at $30, that's when I turned things around playing $1 sng's.
