      Hello guys im John from greece.

      I have been playing pokerstars for few years now but i wasn't taking poker that seriously and i was going bust and i wasn't making any profit.My goal is to start with a 250$ deposit and play 0.5 0.10 NL, and some 0.5 0.10 PLO. When i grind it up to 625$ i will jump into the 0.10 0.25 stakes. I will also use pokerstars VIP bounuses to help me build my bankrol faster, so i could start to withdraw some of my winnings. I am also going to download PokerTraker4 and use the 30Day drial they give, that will give me some infromation on my opponents, and i could upload graphs too :P
      But i will have to wait entill August 5 when i get paid to start my carrier on pokerstars :D

      Hey Lukeychimps

      It all comes down to your personal bankroll management rules. But the Fixed limit article here suggests 300 big bets which would be a good place to start.

      Regards,
      Luke
