I would actually disagree with this. I randomly received $2 from Pokerstars
, and thanks to a friend here at CardsChat that I'll simply call the magical poker fairy, my bankroll started at $5. I've played exclusively on the PokerStars $0.25 45 and 90 man tournaments for about a month and a half, and I've turned it into over $17. I'm sure many of you are laughing at my meagre $17, but I'm not at a point where I'm willing to invest my own money in Poker, so I'm pretty happy with my results.
It's not much at all, but slowly but surely I hope to actually grow a bankroll out of it. It takes a lot of patience and discipline, but unless you run into some really nasty variance, these tourneys are easy enough that you should have no trouble building up some wins if you manage to run into a few dollars again. Until then, the freerolls mentioned here, as well as CardChat's own freerolls are probably your best bet.
Hope that's helpful to you. Best of luck,
