For the poor folks...
I'm in a really good mood. It's just a matter of time before I'm cussing out the monitor and wishing death on whoever chases me to the river with a hand that makes me throw up just a little bit in my mouth.
But for the now, I'm in a really good mood. I'm downright optimistic. I'm at about $50 having had to pull myself out of a tilty-tailspin. I've broken even. Breaking even feels really good after a tailspin. I'm practically luxuriating in having broken even...
So if you're poor like me. Say you deposited $50 to a site, or got a nifty no deposit bonus, or went through freeroll purgatory to make a few bucks - yeah this thread's for you.
We need a plan. I mean we've all got a bit of money and a whole lot of hope, but we need a plan. I'm serious.
Here's what I've got so far:
1. Take no more than 5% of total funds to the table and leave when you double up(or get really lucky just b4 you leave to more than double up).
2. Rebuy 2 times or less, 3rd strike and you're out. I have it in my head that this will minimize tilt.
3. Keep goals small. I know we all want to turn a bit into a whole lot. Start with $50 and turn it into $50k. It's doable. But with that hanging over my head, I don't think I could function. I say keep the goals small. Like every $10 or so, you've succeeded. Ya know? Or even make them so you reach a certain # of points while still making and maintaining a profit. Baby steps, ya know?
That's it. That's all I've got. Beyond that I play the best I can at my level.
That's fine if you have I'd say at least $25 to play with but I think this could use more input.
I know there are a bunch of challenge type threads where the goal seems to build a sizable bankroll by hook or by crook. That's cool. But just one for trying it in a tried and true manner(or as close as we can come to it?), couldn't hurt. Or could it?
