I assume you are talking about NL, which I can't really speak to, but for fixed limit, I deposited only $75, and got up to $200 in 1 month at .25/.50 (running hot). I then deposited (and quickly withdrew, FT has no withdrawal restrictions) $400 for deposit bonus. Now my bankroll is over $800, with only $75 of that being kept in there from my first deposit. This was done in January, and it is now only 4 months later, all at the .25/.50 Fixed Limit games, around 10 hours a week, so this is definitely possible. To move up quickly, I suggest a poker coach and lots of reading and studying by you.
