Forcing myself to build bankroll from nothing
I have some experience playing live in California
at the $5/$10 NL level with success on weekends throughout a multi-month period.
I am attempting to find a way to play for side-income online but for some reason perhaps the ease in aggressiveness that online poker allows makes my game alot less disciplined and I have not had success.
Another realization I had was that there are very limited FULL RING NL holdem tables online (mostly 6-handed) and with a very conservative style, this puts me in a highly dis-advantaged position.
I have been playing non-stop the $10.00 Freerolls
at America's CardRoom
for the last month or so with an 11th place, 15th, 18th, 20th place and so many more close calls.
Should I have cashed yet (only Top 10 paid) out of 800ish by now if I was just an average player? I have around at least 50-100 attempts by now and come very close.
Is it possible to start from $0.50-$1.00 and then grind through the low limits to a decent roll- taking only massive amounts of time.
It has been my goal to do this for quite some time and I am fully dedicated to the time as I manage my business from home and I am by a computer multi-tasking alot.
Any suggestions? Tips?
The pain has been incredible with these very close calls only presenting themselves every few days and it seems that when I get a chance to cash I clam up and fold some decent hands 10/10 , AJ etc. for fear of missing the money and it ends up costing me the money.
Any help would be great!
