When I first started playing online poker, I went through the ups and downs of building a bankroll and losing it all without any warning. It was quite a rollercoaster ride! But now, I'm ready to give it another shot. I've learned my lessons from those experiences, and I'm hopeful that this time around, things will turn out differently.

Great post, I do alot you talk about. I won a couple of freerolls over a 2 week period (55.00). I deciced to use patience and play the cash tables, but only .02/.04 blinds until I was able to build to 100.00, then I moved to the .05/.10 cash tables and so on. I do not play MTT tournaments unless the buy-in is 2% or less of my bankroll. It is a slow climb, but I have been able to make withdrawls without ever depositing. Here is some of my rules when playing,
1. Wife can not be around (she will bug the crap out of me)
2. T.V. must be turned off
3. Dog must be taken out prior to playing so I dont have to do it later
4. Cell phone turned to silence

With all these distractions out of the way, I have been able to play alot better and consistant.
Great advise regarding wife. Fully agree 🤣
While bullets about dog, phone & TV go without saying.

I play tournaments beacause I enjoy that. The size of my bankroll decides what buyin I enter to play. To buyin and play I need to have 20 times the buyin.I started at 0,1$ and moved up to 20$ at my peak now I am back to 0,1$ and still enjoying to play.

What a good contribution.
I started with 30 dollars and played at blind cash tables of 0.02 cents, my money management increased little by little compared to the hours I played, but from one moment to the next I lost a huge amount because I wanted to win faster. That was my turning point.
If you want to make a profit, you must be patient, everything will take a process of perseverance and dedication.
I like to read the contributions of others, because you learn a lot from each other.

I’ve tried to train a bit with play money. But people there are totally different as they don’t risk their money. So I am not sure about this..

I hope you didn’t go to higher limits? Because the most important mistake is to go to a higher limit not according to your bankroll and lose everything to the last.
