Any suggestions on what to play on FT with only 2 bucks in my account. I won a freeroll, hope to win more, but I thought about playing with the cash and know that I cannot sit down at a cash table with this so it has to be tourny. Simply looking for suggestions with such a low budget.

Tilt runs several MTT's with a $1 buy-in, no rake. The nightly Fergy is one of them, depending on your time zone - it's late nite. There's the $.10 rebuy, but the re-buys are 50cents. If you want to try a number of them and stick to the 10c buy-in, those might be a good choice.

FT just started the micro ring tables, but $2 would not be a good place and def not good BR management.

There are also SnG's, but their rake is pretty high.

Yes, he's serious about a deposit -IF- you want an instant, really workable BR.

It can be done from scratch, but takes time, and patience. What I did was start by letting it accumulate. An occasional dimer or 25c MTT on Stars, but especially the private forum games. MUCH, better payouts.

If you just simply cannot wait to get to those big MTT's or the ring games - then deposit. If taking it slow and easy, picking your spots wisely, pooling your cashes, then you can build from nothing.

$2.00..forget the two dollars and play as many freerolls as possible until you build it up to 100.00. Then apply the Ferguson principles of bankroll management, available on FT in blog.
Peace,

It would be easier to build a two dollar bankroll on pokerstars I built it up to $100 before losing it all, but it can be done. I would personally recommend the "Ferguson" tourney on FT. It is a 10 cent rebuy tourney once a day and adds up to a huge pot. It plays like a freeroll, but there is a lot of money to be made for such a small buy in.

Well first of all let me say it's not easy. lol With that being said; here is what I did. I won .80 cents on a free roll at sportsbook. After that a few days later I got into one of .15 buy-in .10 add on tourney.

Nevada Nick metions these at Full Tilt but the add ons are a little more there. If you place in the winnings on you first try you are on to a great start. I placed 7th and won $7.11.

Next I went to the micro tables and built my stack up to $26.00. This did take some time (i.e. a good week and lots of hours).

Last night I took the plunge and got into a $6 bounty tourney and place 3rd. Which paid $36-sum. So it is possible to build your bank roll from free rolls. Don't let others discourage you.

I'm attaching both winnings so you can see the tournaments that I was in. For a better understanding and what to look for.

The first attachment is the one I got into from my .80cents free roll winnings.

Good luck to you good times...

PEACE

P.S. lmao now up over $50 and trying to decide where to go from here, more than likely, more of the same for now.

i say play the 10 cent tourneys if ya don't wanna make a deposit. otherwise keep playing the freerolls til ya get it built up bigger. i've got 1$ on that site after losing 50$ in a ring game on pocket rockets all-in preflop. i said i'd never make another deposit on full tilt and i'm sticking to it, b/c in my opinion they are a donkey site. not only that their software is primitive

I say play the freerolls like I did..It takes some time but you will get some money in your account. Or if you want there is a $100+.25 games in sit and go with only 9 players....I have made money there...Give it a shot you have nothing to lost but $1.25..Good luck to you.

Well you made your money by outmaneuvering a field of 2700 how hard could it be to duplicate that in a field of 3000 given 20 at bats? Try the 10 cent tourneys without rebuying. It'll cap your loss to 10 cents each day which is good bankroll management and offer upside. ITM is usually $1.70 (152nd or better), 30th around $4.5, and a win $300. Hit this twice out of twenty and you've progressed.

I think this tourney is a crazy waste of time. It takes 5 hours to get to the payout, I've done it twice, and only because I had less then a buck in my account. if you have $2, it's better odds to play the 9 people $1.25 SNG - making top 3 out of 9 is much easier than top 150 out of 3600...
Good luck!

I made my $2 bankrol into $40 these past 2 months. I started off sitting in with all my bankroll on the .05/.10 tables, and after getting to about $5 I started playing the $2 headsup in holdem. After reaching about $25, I started playing on two .05/.10 tables with $4 each. That's my success story. Manybe it will work for you.

I would say to gamble with it.

If you lose you can always play another freeroll.

I would definitely give the .01/.02 ring games at FTP a try. They're new... Lots of players who just noticed them are rushing to get rid of their last dollars. Just be patient and slowly turn your $3 back into $50.

I agree with the .10 MTT strategy. Just play tight until you are in the money and you should be in good position to make some money. Then repeat...repeat...and repeat.

The $.10 are probably your best bet if you want to get into the money games immediately, but I would recommend that you continue and to build up the BR by just keeping the freerolls going and try to pass $20

The ring tables on FT have lower tables .01/.02. You can take in $1 and build up from there. Once you have three times your bring-in leave unless you are running really good. X

I say do what you want to with it. What ever you feel comfortable doing. We can tell you what to play but if you don't feel comfortable playing that than it will make no sense because you will lose.You can take advice from others but you in the end have to play the way you want and what you want or else this will be no fun for you and poker is supposed to be fun.Good luck
