I messed up my knee at work last week. I'm going to go to the doc today for diagnosis. Depending on that, I figured I'll be out of work for at least a week! Going to consciously try and build my bankroll. I've been playing at Stars since about Oct. with a $50 deposit. I've managed to get it to $108,but right now I'm at $97. I have practiced very good Brm but just can't seem to build my bankroll! I doubled the $50 in the first couple of weeks after my initial deposit! Cards ran good but then dried up(imagine that).
I know I am one of the biggest whiners on here,but am going to try and curb that and play good poker!Whatever happens,happens.
I will probably play micro-rings.1c/2c,a freeroll here and there,some 1$ sng's,and 1$ mtt's.I may also deposit a little more to move things along slightly! Playing these micro-limits has taught me many a lot and is a great way to learn the game!I feel if you can stomach the bad beats your game will improve, along with your patience! I also know why they call it grinding out a profit.whew!
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!Thanks in advance! May post daily progress!:D

Thanks for all the well wishes!They said it is just inflamed.Some painful inflamation though!!!
I did all right yesterday. I struggled most of the day and was down but managed to get $10 profit from the 2c/5c tables! Making my day profit of $5!
Today was about the same. Started out with a 10c turbo nl tourney.Won a whopping $1.50. Played a lot of $1 sng's with 45 entrants. Got good cards but never managed to get my chip stack to grow! I ended up about $9 down.So of course I go on tilt and enter a 180 entrant $4 tourney. I calmed down and played really well! I'm hoping I am on a upswing from my LONG dry spell of cashes! Anyway,I finished 4th and won $57. So, I increased my BR by 1/2! Am very happy!But got to work on not tilting when I lose!
By the way,I have $144 Br now!Can anyone tell me what buy-ins I should try now and what level RNG games to play!!

Thanks in advance! May post a graph of my BR from the beginning tomorrow if I can figure out how!!:D

Well I just learned a valuable lesson in multi-tabling!

I did all right yesterday! Won like two or three $'s,which is good for me!Did well in a 45 man $1 sng!Placed 5th for 3 dollars,then got knocked out of the next one!
That isn't crap though! I usually shy away fron rng games as I am not very good at them! So,today I tried to play 4 at once! Very logical thinking on my part!(not)! But I was doing killer! I was up like $10 in about 2 hours at the 1c/2c tables! But then the inevitable happened,the cards dried up and my profit dwindled!Real good BR management there! I lost the whole $10 I was up and about a $1 more! I am just going to chalk it up as a learning experience! But it was fun when I was hitting just about every hand I played:D !
Yhink I'll slow down and try another sng!
