I registered with a credit card yesterday, (They didn't charge anything on it) and received the $10 deposit bonus. I believe, starting out with $10, is going to take a massive amount of time and luck to work up to the $.50/1 tables so that I am able to actually cash out.


I was thinking of playing a couple tournaments but realized that I would have to come in at least 3rd place to recover some money. Which I'm not too sure that would happen since I'm used to playing free rolls and have never placed 3rd in a MTT of any kind. Unless I play in daytime tourneys and see if there is more people entering. . . either way, MTT's with real money aren't my bread and butter yet anyway.

So, I headed to the lowest limit tables available. (0.5/.10c) To my surprise, there wasn't a lot of people at the low limit rings compared to the other prima site I had played on. (royal vegas) Starting off, I found a 6 handed table which was short-handed (but later filled up), and bought in with $2, and caught a couple cards and breaks. One of which was a donk that went all in with anything when he first entered, then later became a calling station when I got some good cards on the flop. I'm done for tonight so here's my progress. I hope I can keep posting in this for a few days or weeks, at the least, because I tend to go on horrid streaks for one reason or another. ;) :(

Whoops. When I said I headed to the lowest limit tables...I really meant the NL tables with the lowest blinds.

I'd stick it all on a $10 SnG now that you've got the buy in. It just doesn't seem worth the effort spending 2 hours turning $11.10 into $14 or so.If you've got $30 or so, you can start slowly building from there, but $11 isn't enough.

Thanx. Will do.

Eh. I'm not confident enough to stick it all on 1 sitngo. I've had bad experiences on Tilt with bad beats and what not in the past couple weeks. I'm going to play this conservatively. I'll scout a table out, buy in for $2 or less, then see what happens. Hopefully I'll get extremely lucky.



Whoopsy. . just realized bankroll is 1 word. . .

Well, earlier today I found a table with 1 player ($4), and bought in for $2, was bullied a hand or two, but, then I bullied back with good cards, then, after arriving, 1 nice fellow decided he would go all-in preflop a couple times. So, I of course took some of his money easily a few hands later. A couple more players decided to sit down with very low buy-ins. I put one or two of them all-in post flop with good cards. They didn't believe me when hitting a few good hands in a row... They left and more low buy-ins came, so I scooted out ahead when the blinds made it my way and I wasn't catching anything. All of this happened in about 5 mins, believe it or not...Good day ...I guess...for the amount of time spent.....I really don't enjoy playing with fire..lol..Although there's nothing I can really do about it unless I take $10 to a 10 seater...which doesn't sound like too fond of the idea... I'm tired. . .slept most of the day...and still tired, Good Day & Good Night!

It's hard trying to find a short-handed table on Dream at night so, looks like I'm done for now. It was a Up, down, down, up day...A couple bad beats in the beginning, but I grinded it out. Slow but steady . . 3 good days in a row, hopefully I can keep it going...

The first 1 went all in, then I went all in, then the next guy, then the next. Everyone had a pair. . .and I had the lowest. lol I had just donked off $2.
I decided to leave that table after gaining around 20c.

Wee!...and hit up another 6 seat, shorthanded table. With a high pair, a few people decided to go all-in with low pair, this time I came out the victor. :) I love risking my buy in within 2 hands of entering, against two other people, especially after what happened at the previous table. I was going to cry if I lost that hand. lol Big risks paid me out big. AJ came to me a few hands later I raised the min. 2 others called. Board hit 7227A. I gained 20c from that. lol Lovely...Good day. Extremely lucky...The best thus far...
The weekend seems to bring out the donks....that'll do wierd shitz, thus making me temp. flip my top. I'm done until mon. Anther good day indeed.(30-40 mins) Peace out.

I find that the steadiest and easiest way to build a bankroll with the free $10, is to find tables where most of the people haven't bought in with a lot of money, and playing at shorthanded tables. Avoiding big shots with over $10 and $20, who are looking to steamroll everyone is a key, especially when I only buy in with $2. I'm obviously scuured of playing with someone with 10x's my buy-in and being steamrolled. lol. The only problem with very low buy-ins is the donk factor. I played some yesterday and today....increasing the BR. . . Streeeaaakin' Baby!

It looks like your on the right track. You doubled your bankroll and then some. I wish you good luck on future poker games. Keep up the good work!

yea i turned that 10 into 45.75 and entered a 20 sng and lost and from there i went down hill runner runner rivers and such. I SWARE dream seems to let you win a while and then you cant catch cards and cant stop bad beats, its almost like even though i hate when people say it "its rigged".

Good thing I put up another post after that bad goo-goo was posted. lol

Well, the night is still young. . .and I've been playing all day. So, it's time to quit while I'm still behind ($19.70). I actually started the day by hitting 4 of a kind...then it all went down hill, couldn't catch a card, was slightly pressing, and got some bad beats. I looked up Dream's requirements for withdrawing...I'll need 100 raked hands of .25c or more. I'm around 40 raked right now...almost halfway there. Hopefully I can get this BR up to over 100 before I try to withdraw...then again...Hopefully I get to 100 raked hands with money still in the bank. lol Nite. Thanks for everyone's posts.
