      I am 23 yo and i've been playin poker for almost 4 years for fun with friends and sometimes at casinos.After the first year of my poker experience, i came to ask myself that there is going to be one solid way to start building a bankroll by playing in a certain "good" way poker.
      Then i became a member here and started the study, and i can say that by playing SSS i managed to have some good stats for about 2 months of playing poker.(Well, one other day i went 2-4$ cash and lost em all with AA), But anyway i was the worst bankroll management ever :P .My last big success was once in a casino for vocation, i did earn 600 euros from cash games through 5 days.Then i quited playing poker for other reasons.
      About 3 weeks ago, i decided to give it another chance,as i received a 50$ first aid kit from Titan.Unable to play at higher stakes than 1$ due to the restrictions, i did deposit 100$ in order to play at 5$ 10 SnG's. when i turned from bronze to silver i started to have some troubles using the silver status suggestrions of how to play, but then it could also be the bad players level.
      So i started playing the 10+1$ tournaments, which for now, run pretty nice :)
      So, we got 50$ first aid free + 100$ my deposit + about 100(thanks to the incredible HULK!!! :D ) and my SnG positive line, i came up to 327 euros :)
      Nice to know u all :)

      hi tsiloulis,

      welcome to our community! well, i hope you've learned your lesson about brm by now :s_cool:

      who in the world is the incredible HULK giving 100$? i think i want to meet him! :D

      have you tried the ICM trainer/ light? it might help polish up your SNG game even more. :)

      Bankroll mngment is maybe the most important thing to do when playing poker! i've learned my leasson :P
      I did pass the ICM light version tests, but i can tell that they differ quite much in comparison to the 4 push or fold charts, so i decided to learn almost by hart the 4 charts and i can say they are pretty much successful.
      Go on a random poker table in titan poker, and click on that green giant :P but the thing i appreciated about Titan poker, is that they allowed me to selfexclude me from playing casino games, (like the incredible hulk). Not like partypoker, who say that they can not do anything about it... i also find holdem manager very usefull, and after reading the pokerstrategy articles about stats, holdemmanager is of a lot help to me :)

      this is my graph, but since i only play for 1 or 2 weeks it can not be reliable.My goal? to keep this positive progress over time so that i can rely on such stats.

      hmm.. i failed uploading my holdemmanager graph :P dont know how

      To post images
      1. save the image somewhere in you computer
      2. upload to a free image hosting service (like imgur.com, imageshack.com, etc.)
      3. in that image hosting service, copy the link which says for posting in forums
      4. paste in our message box
      5. voila!


      see if you can make it work! ;)

      also yes, it will take quite a long time before you will be able to gauge your true winrate.

      and yikes i've changed my mind about the hulk. why dont u just avoid downloading the casino clients so you wont be tempted to play them?
