its possible to get from a small bankroll to a big bankroll but it requires a lot dicipline and time to get there
i started in 2004 with $100 at 4 sites $25 on each site .
poker.com on merge, pokerstars, partypoker
and titanpoker at ip-network.
joined 3 forums mainly for their freerolls
and money added games they offered
the first year i played 2 and 5 nl ring loads of freerolls and lots of $1 mtts
after 1 year i had joined 6 other sites that offered or free cash to start or an instant bonus with a small deposit and invested another $100 in total.
had around $800 bankroll after that first year most was money won in freerolls and bonusses cleared .
most of it at merge and ip-network.
still playing 2-5 nl at all sites but at poker.com .
played 10nl at merge because their bonus system was great in that time
at merge you got fpp for just sitting at tables and got dealt in a hand !
with those points you could get in a daily 1K freeroll a weekly 10K freeroll and a whopping 50K freeroll each month
did the same for another 2 years and had a bankroll of $2100 at start 2008
without putting any more money in.
started to bonushunting in 2008 !
i withdrew most cash before the end of the month and redeposited at start of new month that amouth of cash to get a bonus that i could clear in that month ! and repeated that every month mostly on merge and ip-network and cake that offered montly new bonusses in that time
dropped party and pokerstars because there where to big fields in their freerolls and played mostly at merge-ip-cake !
2008 was my best year until now
played 5-10 nl ring - freerolls and mtt up to $5 buyin most freezeouts or bounty games .
won a 10K freeroll at merge for $1500 and severall big cashes in mtts and
had over 6K bankroll at start 2009
From there until now i make a steady $200+ profit each month and have past the 5 figures bankroll last year !
still play mostly 10nl on most sites and some 20-25 nl .
play also a lot mtt between $1 to $10 buyins most freezeouts and bounty games .
withdrew over 5K and still got a 5 figure bankroll.
i could easy play higher limits ringgames or mtt but tried that and not felt comfortable in those so stayed at the low limits.
i play mostly for fun and am happy with the $200+ each months at levels i like to play at, maybe i could get more profit by playing 1 level higher at 25nl or 50nl but chose to not play there.
most cash is reserved for my retirement fund that i intend to use for emigrating to thailand in about 3-4 years
my advice to players that want to increase their bankroll is patience and not move up to quickly !
not move up in levels to quickly ! even if bankroll allowes it !
play those games that you are comfortable with and make profit on is better than trying to moveup and play even or loose at !
make use of bonus offers as much as possible thats the most easy way to get cash
if playing a day and start loosing stop playing that day and play another day ! no use in getting frustrated and trying to makeup losses it will let you make mistakes and lets you loose more !
if got a good start on a day increase the play and even might try 1 table at a bit higher level to make use of your good run.
never play to many tables/games at the same time than you can handle on a relkexed way.
not play wen not feel good or rested enough !
take regulair breaks on a playing day to be fresh at the tables !
good luck leo
