I'm by no means an expert but I'm doing the ferguson right now, started 11days ago and I'm playing every freeroll I can lay my hands on, and 9pls sng horse 1,25 $ buy-in. My current bankroll is 36$ and I will stay at the small tables until I reach 100$, then I'll try my luck on the 2$ sngs and 0,05/0,10 cashgames. I know this will take a lot of time, but I love poker and the cash I win is only a bonus for playing well. If I have a loosing streak (it will come sometime - I'm sure) 1,25$ won't hurt me that much either. I'll keep up playing freerolls too, mainly for fun.
