i'm a low stakes player and i've built a bankroll of roughly 15 dollars from an assortment of freerolls, cash games and sngs. at one point my bankroll was at more than 20 dollars, but i seems that every time i'm up, i just blow it again - does anyone have any advice on how i can more effectively build my bankroll?
Yes, don't play high stakes at all. Only play 0.05-0.1 cent maximum tables. Don't put a buy in to a tournament over $4. Sit n go's are your best bet. Only play your best game. Lastly, Give me $5... just messin. Don't bluff!!

Its definately hard at that stage. Any mistake could put a large dent in your roll. I would recommend just playing the 2nl cash tables until you get your roll up to $50. Obviously keep playing the freerolls also!

I have built a br from nothing recently and now it is at $150.
My biggest piece of advice is to build up a decent amount from freerolls before you start playing buyins.
I got to $50 before I would buy in to any game.
PLAY THE CARDSCHAT FREEROLLS.
This was the key to my success.
I came 2nd in a CC fr for $34 and I haven't looked back since!
Best of luck m8.

Play in the lowest stakes possible until you build up your Bankroll.
