Well, good bankroll managment (BRM) dictates, that you will be limited no matter where you go. I would recommend a site that has low buy-in tournies ($1 or less). Unfortunately, you will be frustrated by the caliber of play (lots of donk at low buy-ins because "it's only a dollar" mentality). However, you must endure this will building the BR to a point that allows your slow climb up the buy-in ladder.

I would also make sure that it is a site that has good freerolls, so you can help to raise your BR thru freerolls.

FTP and PS have rather weak freerolls, but many cheat buy-ins. bodog has great freerolls, but not as many low buy-ins. CarbonPoker is in the middle on both aspects. DoylesRoom has limited freerolls and mid-number of cheap buy-ins. Those are the only sites i play on currently.

All-in-all, i would recommend Bodog or Carbon. Just keep in mind that poor players exist everywhere, and you must endure. Play tight-and -aggressive, becuase you have limited room for bluffing with a small BR. Good luck

If you deposit only 60 at fultilt - so you will waste a lot of possible bonus

So better deposit on pokerstars - they only have a small bonus

Or pokeroom - I like that room very much - has a good membership-system

I would read some bankroll management blogs first and figure out where you want to play...........Minimum deposit on FT is 50 so if you really want that site that limits you to 10 on another site.
Because I like FT that would be my plan. So it really has to do with what site you like first. I good rule of thumb for building a bankroll is not to spend more than 5% on a game..do some sng's to build on what you have......gl to you :)

If I were you I'd go with PokerStars, and use the CC signeup. Not only do you you get the deposit bonus, but I believe there's an additional $25 bonus if you get enough FPP's. That's pretty significant bonus for a small bankroll.

Not only that, but PokerStars has more options for the small bankroll, and their rake for the micro games is cheaper than Stars.

Also keep in mind that as soon as you get 15 posts you can join our games, from an overlay POV, they can't be beat. We do have the Monday cheaproll, for a buck at Stars. This is the best deal in Pokerdom.

Playing our games gives you a large shot at a big headstart to a decent bankroll.

Pokerstars, the reason well said by Zorba, DJ and SavagePenguin.

I like the play there better than at FT and cheaper rakes at Stars make a huge difference to your bankroll.

Although I have never deposited on any site ( I freerool and bankroll build until I can WITHDRAW!).... but with that amount I would play and have played low limit ring games (sitting down with no more than 10% of BR at any table or tourny!) and $1-3 sngs. If you are a TAG I reccommend playing $5.00 (9-45) player sngs!

Good luck, HAVE FUN and be safe out there! :cool:

I agree that the CC games in particular the freerolls are well worth the effort... however I believe all may join regardless of the number of posts. 15 has been offered as a number that will get you the password in advance, but day of the tourney passwords for freerolls are posted.

I don't have bank at Stars so I must defer on paid entry CC games, is there a password that only the anointed may play?

I think bodog is perfect for about $60. Alot of single table $2.20 tournaments, and some smaller tournaments that don't seem impossible to win.

buy-in determined by your strength-i would start at low levels and work your way up until you have mastered

Agreed, add Adventure to that list, and me. Look to the Stars ... :D .

Not if you want to play $1 SNGs. Those are raked at 20c, while you can get $1+.1 on other sites like everest.

The one big advantage of stars is the traffic, especially when you move to high stakes. This is totally irrelevant for a micro stakes player who will never have trouble finding a game at his stake.

Do you run spybot?... if so msg me and I will give you the fix to allow bodog to run... other than that what firewall program are you running, it's likely blocked?

Those are the first two places I'd look.
