ok well my story is that like 1 year ago, i deposited like 50 to 150 dollars every other week. I didn't have the slightest clue about bankroll managment and played .25/.50 or .50/1 dollar blinds with 100 dollars. I obviously am not that bad at poker and coupled with running good, sometimes i'd run that into a couple hundred dollars before eventually bad bankroll management caught up. This was the case for about 6 months, until I entered college in 2006 September and I realized that I'm depositing too little money.
So i deposited 400 dollars, the most ever and i blew threw that in a couple weeks. Once again, poor bankroll management. One night, i went down to 3 dollars, which was a low point, but over the course of less than 2 weeks, those 3 dollars turned into almost 700 dollars. I was on cloud 9, feeling invincible. Then slowly that went down the drain. In October, I deposited 1,000 dollars which went down to about 300 but then I focused and brought that up to 3,000. Once I hit 3 grand, I cashed out 2 thousand and proceeded to lose the thousand still left. It was only a matter of time before I put the 2 thousand I cashed out back in and sure enough, last December I put it back in.
I lost that in a matter of 2 weeks and from then on, managed to deposit about another grand and some change. I just started realizing that I need more than 20 buy-ins for a nlhe game and starting to learn proper bankroll management.
Anyways, I found this neat site called pokersourceonline where they said they will give you 100 dollars to play at a site as long as you play the amount of raked hands. I was so excited because I thoguht I can do it, but then it said that I must be at least 21 years old. what a bummer.
Does anyone know of any other site which spots you some money and all you have to do is do complete their requirements, usually playing x amount of raked hands? Or unless someone wants to stake me... heh after I prove to them of course
