I'm kceow2981 and I was thinking it might be fun to create a thread documenting my micro stakes cash games journey, as I try to grind my way up in stakes hopefully. I was thinking I might post my current graph that I have up to this point, and then occasionally add in some of the sessions that I have from day to day. Maybe I'll occasionally throw in some hands that I run into and we can discuss what other people might do in the same situations. Currently I play 1 or 2 5nl tables on ignition, as well as the occasional CC Freeroll or other freeroll tournies on ACR when I want to play a little bit of poker but take it less seriously. By the way, I tend take a pretty conservative bankroll management strategy where I try to profit 50 buyins at each stake, so don't expect anything crazy from me :P I might wait to win a few more buyins than most would, just so I can be absolutely sure that I've gotten good enough to warrent moving up.
Another btw, I first started getting into poker a little over a year ago and have been loving it ever since. It's a super fun hobby where sometimes you can make a little money along the way

Here is my overall graph including the 5k hands I've played so far on Ignition at 5nl, my winning session graph that I had today (89 hands), and my overall bankroll I have in excel. You'll see a bunch of stuff in the bankroll image. At the top is the original amount of money I put on each site (ACR and Ignition), beneath that you will see poker expenses like Poker Tracker 4, Flopzilla, and things like the amount I've lost playing poker in person (I've never been to a casino so these losses are in silly home games). After that is additional funds that I've gotten from rake-back or freeroll winnings. This money is already included in the "In Game Total"'s that I have for each site below. And then at the bottom of the sheet you will see the amount of money that I have on ACR right now and my current profit on ACR (negative... I got beat up at 2nl there before going to Ignition). Then is the current money I have on Ignition and below that the profit that I've made on Ignition. Below that is the profit that I've made when combining both ACR and Ignition. Below that my total "invested money" which essentially is the total amount of money that I have taken out of my bank account and spent on poker stuff (the sum of all my initial site deposits and my expenses like PT4). And then FINALLY there's my overall profit which is my money that I have on ACR and Ignition minus all my expenses.
So as you can see I am a winning player (just barely) when considering the money that I have actually gotten onto the sites. However I have not yet made nearly enough profit to pay for all of the other poker expenses that I've had. Let me know what you guys think. I'm pretty excited about this journey

Hmm, these images look like they could be higher quality. I'll work on that in the future

On a quick separate non-cash game note, I placed 3rd in a CC freeroll today which was the highest I've placed so far My previous best was 10th so that was fun got very very lucky in a few spots where I was very behind in an all in preflop and sucked out on a few people.
On the other hand I haven't played too many cash games recently. I've been doing more studying than playing. I'm thinking of how often I might want to post here. Maybe every 1k hands or so? Maybe more? Idk I'll have to figure it out
