Building your bankroll
I`ve been playing poker now for 6 months, and my bankroll is poor.
When I started within 2 months I had gone from $500-$4000 based mainly on MTT wins and placings.
Over the past few months I have hit a brick wall.
Some of the reasons are I got greedy and started playing higher buyin games, I will play most days a mix of MTT and SNG`s.
I don`t do well in cash games as I don`t have the patience - perhaps I should give up poker, I don`t know.
In SNG`s I do ok, but June and July I lost.
Here are some stats - about 6 weeks worth.
SNG`s Played 53 in money in 21
Staked $1,095 Winnings $1,080 Loss of $15
MTT Played 73 in money 11
Staked $2,228.90 Winnings $1311.24 Loss of $917.66
I can see from my stats when I play smaller limit MTT ($30 buyin or less) I do better than bigger stakes. I decided to go bigger stakes because of the fish in the low limit. The same is what follows in SNG`s.
So, how do you guys set out a strategy to increase you payroll???
In August I am going to drop back to $10 or less buy in MTT and $20 or less buyin SNG`s.
Have any of u guys got any futher advice???
