Okay so I have been playing poker at family gatherings and friends for 5 years now. I have been playing micro stakes cash games for 3 years and am a winning player however poor bankroll management and lack of patience have lead to me being unsuccessful. I have taken time away from depositing and have been grinding freerolls on full flush and betonline and have been consistently cashing and playing for fun with that money.

I have been a recreational player who studies like crazy for sometime now. I play for fun but have seriously studied for years by reading books, watching youtube, skimming forums, and watching twitch.

I now want to deposit $100 (broke uni student) between two sites and grind micro MTTs. My goal is to turn $100 into $500 before I return home for summer next year. That gives until the end of April.

I am confident in my abilities and am prepared to take a serious approach. My dilemma comes in which sites to deposit on. Any advice regarding sites and the fields, hard-soft scale of the field, deposit bonus' and tournaments schedules is what I am looking for.

I play Mon-Thurs from 7-11ish and all day Fri-Sun, when I return to school it will be Weekends and Tuesdays. I want to deposit on two sites so I can play more tournaments at once.

Please give me insight into which sites you prefer and their tournaments schedules.

Also, advice on bankroll management would be appreciated. I am thinking of looking at an ABI of about 50 cents, is that appropriate for my $100?

Sorry for the long read, any help will be greatly appreciated and feel free to add in any other advice you feel applies. Thanks a ton!

Cheers

ok if your winning on these two sites why do you need to deposit? I think you have issue with your bankroll management. I never win these two sites either lol i win a tournament then give it back in higher stakes or has been what have done for like 6 months out of the year played full flush and betonline

i win on other rooms and withdraw etc.. just cant seem to get these two above 20-50 dollars at a time till give it back in some bigger event where so far have not fared well.

Not questioning your plan or skill just saying you are probably doing same thing I do and win use it up losing in other mtts or on ring etc. for those two rooms.

I would work on bank roll management first before depositing make sure have a plan and it works myself. To give self 100 to make 500 what happens if you do that the first day? Just saying its a wide range not sure is enough information your going to rake 25 cents 50 cents?

also why go away from mtts if that is what has gotten you wins? Just a question seems if you played there 8.00 event daily for 10 to 20k you might do better.

I have played these even there 20 dollar buy ins just havent done well yet.

Sooner or later will hit I think:) Good luck with what you choose to do I would do what works for me though and tighten down the process instead of doing for heck of it
