My strategy for success
I've just joined the site so I thought I'd post a little bit about myself.
I started playing NLHE SnG about 12 months ago, making an initial investment of $5 on Blue Square ( I already had a sports betting account with them). I just played 0.10c buy in tourneys and freerolls
, and within a couple of months I'd built my $5 up to $50. I decided to set myself a target, and I'd read somewhere that for SnGs you should play at a level where you have 30 buy-ins in your BR, so I started with the $1 tables.
My plan was to win enough for 30 buy-ins at the next available buy-in level, and keep going until I reached $100 buy-in tables, at which point I'd withdraw the profits and then play another 30 tables at the same level.
I expected it to take me a couple of years to get to $100 tables, but within about 4 months I've already reached the $20 buy-ins. My ROI has never dropped below 50%, after some levels it's been over 100%.
I feel confident that by Xmas this year I'll have reached the $100 buy-in SnGs, and then I can start reaping the rewards from my hard work.
I've also learnt a lot from Harrington's books, I'm almost at the end of Vol 3 now. It's nice to read something at lunchtime in work, then come home and try it out and see it working!!
Has anyone else worked out a plan like this, and how has it gone? Are you still making regular money from it?
