I know when I first started playing online I was playing whatever games I could buy into, and I was losing a little, but once I started applying good BRM, I became more confident that I wasn't going to go busto and that is where my winning started. Now believe me, i love when people who are plaing outside of their means come to my table and buy in for like $7.37 and you can tell they have their entire roll on the line. The problem with a lot of new, bad players is that they don't want to follow proper BRM because it isn't the fun thing to do. He has $10, so technically, there is nothing he can do that would follow anything resembling a proper BRM unless he's playing .10c tourneys and who the hell wants to only play those?
Now as far as you taking any advice in here has gone, I've given up on you. You're obviously a recreational player that doesn't mind going broke and you're just looking for a thrill. Look at what advice you were given:
- Leave current BR alone and only play freerolls until you get $50
- Just play with play money until you build up enough for some freeroll
- Play 2NL until you build up a roll
- Play the .10c tourneys
- Play only the Daily Dollar
But then you play the $3.30 with only $9 in your account. I don't care that you cashed anything in it, that was stupid mistake #1 if you're wanting to "resist to deposit more". Then you take your ~$32 to a 10NL table...that's just genius let me tell you. You actually got lucky making a dumb move in cashing in the tournament and then you go ahead and make the same bonehead move and put 30% of your bankroll on the table again. You would have been actually been rolled more well for 2NL with the 16Buyins you'd have with $32, but now you're back down to only 11 buyins, and I suspect that by the end of this week, your entire roll is going to be gone because you don't listen to good advice.
I admit my wrong decision to put my whole BR on risk playing 10NL with full stack, I just want to say that I am so happy to have many experts here dropping their advices to new player like me. Because my english is not good, I always read 2-3 times all reply here so I can get the point and yesterday I buy a small notebook, write down all suggestions here, maybe you ask why would I write manually when I can just print this page or copy paste to my computer. Because with writing manually, I absorb 3 times more rather than just reading, that's to prove that I take seriously all advices here.
I also write down all my poker expenses (deposit) so I can monitor it in futures. I also start read, watch, learn all FTP Academy lessons to improve my games.
For 10C tourney, I have check it, and unfortunately the time is not good at my place, so I cannot enter that tourney. Also about freeroll, I am thinking about that because it would hit my rakeback, I checked that my RB become negative because I join Daily Dollar.
No, I would not do something stupid like playing 10NL again, I only play 2NL full stack or 5NL short stack since yesterday.
