      I am going to try and grind my bankroll from $100 to $10,000, playing micro stakes cash games of No Limit Hold 'Em.

      This challenge aims to improve my own game. The main aim of this challenge is to learn how to be a profitable player at micro stakes No Limit Hold 'Em. Also the $10000 bankroll should allow me to comfortably play 200nl.

      Starting the grind with 100$ at 2nl , and will move to 5nl at 250$ bankroll :)


      I will start playing at 2nl the lowest possible available stakes in online poker and plan to move to grind the bankroll to $ 10000 so that I can play 200nl at online poker.

      The profit column shows how much profit is required to make at each level. I will only move up level once bankroll is greater than 50 full buy-ins at that new stake. If my bankroll falls below 50 buy-ins at the current level, I will move down a level. This is an essential part of bankroll management, and ensures the full bankroll is never lost.

      Dont want to put a downer on your challenge but nowadays is near impossible to grind from nl2 upto nl200. Depending on how much time you have it will probably take 2 years. if your not winning at nl2 then you will need at least 50k hands until nl5. You will need at least 50k hands of each stake up until nl25 where you need to grind like 100k unless you run good. Then its like 100k of each until nl200. So prepared to grind like shit and play like 12 tables solidly otherwise you will get bored before you even make $1000

      Hi again,

      I'm sorry but this is totally against our T&C's and I can't see why you wouldn't want to use your original account to blog about? With basic account, you're not able to post pictures and I can't/won't make an exception either.

      Please try to understand that multiaccounting is not allowed and your account needs to be closed. You need to give me your other account username and start blogging with that if you wish to continue.

      Let me know
      Ingrid

      I started with a $20 bankroll 4 months ago. Took 1 month until I was playing nl25 and am now playing up to nl100. It's not impossible.

      Though I wouldn't stay at nl2 until I got $250.

      I started at nl4, then moved to nl10 once I had $100, nl25 at $500, nl50 at$2000.
