BR Update: 10/24 Slowly I turn...

Slowly, I turn...

I've been playing mostly 0.25/0.50 LHE games and bring $10 to the table. It's probably about 7.5% of my bank roll on the table, but with Limit, you can play the odds better. It's taking me a while to build up my bank roll on because of it being limit, but it better prepares me for games up in Black hawk.

I went up to Black hawk Colorado a few weeks ago, I still have about 140 dollars left in my bankroll. I played at the Golden Gates Casino and the Lodge Casino. I was up 80 when I left Golden Gates and down 80 when I left the Lodge. I came out even.

One of the things I remember from rethinking the Chris Ferguson Experience, is that when you are managing your bankroll, leave when you are ahead so you don't risk more than 10% of your bankroll. For example, if you have a $100 bankroll and bring in for $5, you should leave when you table stack is about $10. Then you can bring into another game for $5 and protect your bankroll. It's hard to do this playing live with $140 bankroll. But I think my next strategy when I go up there is to bring in for 70 or so to a table and leave when my table stack is a little over 100 and try to find another game. Also, I should probably play 2/4 LHE instead of the 2-5 spread limit games.

BR Update:: Fighting my way back.

I'm slowing fighting my way back up. I was down to less than $20 on FTP, and I was even looking at recharging my account there. I missed all of my bonus money on FTP because it's hard to get any points when you are playing such low limits.

I've done well on Pokerstars, I've been consistent there and slowing moving up.

My current online poker plan is to be patient, play tight limit games to slow move up and to play low no limit games once in a while. I haven't had the time for tournaments, but I'll play in the Pokerstars Blog tournament next week.
