      Hello all!

      I have this problem with my bankroll.
      I just cant get it to grow.

      Attempt NL0.02 - 0.05:

      Started with 25USD played about 2-3 weeks (1-2h/day) and ended up with about 25USD on my poker account.

      Attempt NL 0.5-0.10:

      Started with 100 USD played about he same as i did on 0.02-0.05.
      Ended up with 120USD and 10 of the 20 won was from bonus clearing.

      Is this normal?

      I play some live poker with 0 bankroll control at our local casino and im making more profit there longterm. ?(

      It's too general of a question to answer without more information. It could be variance. It could be that you are not a winning player.

      Just keep playing and trying to improve and hopefully your results will improve with that.

      I'd suggest brm also while playing live.. It sounds like your not a very experienced player so it wouldn't hurt to study alot. Even if you decide that you won't be playing online it doesn't hurt your live game by becomming a better player ;)

      Breakeven is not normal it's exceptional. (You are beating the rake which is nothing to sneeze at.) Most players end up losing over even a small sample size.

      Well i know i beat the rake, and i also get my bonus dollars. But it feels very slow to grind 8 hours for a few dollars? I play MSS mostly but almost all i get is blinds. Im thinking of trying the SnG game.

      I have been playing live for a long time at our local casino. I think i have about 12-17% ROI according to my exel charts:P

      Problem with BRM at the casino is ofc the minimum buyin for 200USD.
      My roll is about half what i need..

      Poker is a slow grind.
