ProphetEyes' Building a BR From Scratch
Hello cash game players. I'm fairly new here at CC, but have been playing for a few years now, mainly cash games at Full Tilt, .05/.10 NLHE. But after Black Friday I took sometime off from the game. I recently got back into it after discovering Carbon Poker
. Being a super broke hippie I don't have any money to make a deposit, so I started grinding out the Funstep SNG's there to try to earn a single dollar to go from. After winning the dollar the first time, I quickly lost it at the .02/.04 Limit Hold'em tables following a truly abysmal showing. I played too many hands and ended up facing a few bad beats as well. So I went back to the grind again at the Funsteps. A quickly got another dollar. This time I went back to the same tables where I played a tighter game and made it up to 3.57 the first night. Not too shabby for some pennies! But since then I've had some swings. This was about a week or so ago from today. My bankroll is now sitting at 4.33. Which I'm happy with, but would like to improve it more. It's been as high as 4.77.
I'm starting this thread for advice on building a bankroll from scratch and to track my progress as I do so. I know it's going to take a while before I get anywhere substantial (unless I get that stake from CC!) . I will be posting hands in the cash game analysis section for further improvement, as well. Good luck to all at the tables and may the poker gods shine there light down on you all!
