      hello everyone, i am plebpl (ryan) i live on the south coast of england. ive been playing poker for about 8 months, i usually grind away at the low stakes cash games FR. well i got my bankroll from $30 up too $200....... then lost it all. ide like to blame it on my cat jumping on my keyboard or my toast burning but at the end of the day it was because i had no BRM. but to be honest im happy i lost it all, i now understand how important it is to control your bankroll.

      im looking to start grinding sng's as i prefer them and i feel i am better at them. the videos on here have already helped me alot, im looking forward to progressing on the levels to see mroe of them :)

      its a great comunity you guys have got here and im happy to be a part of it.

      ryan

      Hey Ryan, welcome to our community! We can't help you with your unruly cat or burnt toast, but we certainly can help you with bankroll building ;)

      Where are you playing at? Did you pass the quiz yet?

      hi ryan,

      welcome sir! yes brm is indeed super important. it's saved me countless of times when my monkey jumps on my keyboard :D (i mean my tiltmonkey). congrats on passing the quiz! sounds like a good plan to start grinding at the beginning. hope you will succeed this time around!

      smiles,
      Wendy

      i tend to get very involved in forums lol, im a moderator on a motorbike forum and used to be a moderator on a programming forum. that got shut down though :( never been on a forum of this scale though. i find it refreshing that the moderators are still very much a key part of the comunity and dont just go around deleting threads and moaning like on alot of other big forums :)

      hah yea those pets :O its not the first time ive had a problem with that monkey :D its getting better though just reading articles to improve my mindset.
      well, i play cash so probably there are better people to ask about sng brm. and of course single table brm is lot different from mtt's. personally i like to use a bit of aggro brm at the micros and become nittier as i move up the stakes.

      nice to hear u like to be active on forums. who knows, you might want to be moderator around here someday :P

      cheers,
      Wendy
