      THREAD CLOSED MADE A NEW ONE :P called the chris furgeson challenge if you want to have a butchers.

      After getting the $50's from pokerstrategy free of change I played my game pretty well using the articles on pokerstrategy about sng's one thing I didnt pay attention too was probably the most IMPORTANT ONE
      BANKROLL MANAGEMENT. after playing sng's of varing amounts from $1-25 i found my bank roll at a measly $12. I asked myself what have i been doing! I thought id start this blog to keep track of my daily progress post some sample hands to look at and have a look at some graphs.

      Anyways im a 19 yr old guy from the uk, kent to be specific and have only been playing poker for 3 months now so yes im still a rookie. I have a part time job in the weekends at a cafe and go to college during the week. Other than my new found hobby poker i also like to play the cricket and the guitar.

      hey there jmackenzie,

      Good luck on getting back to a level where you can actually apply BRM (since 6 stack SSS can easily lead you to go broke with the high variance it has). Depending on what site you are playing at - low level SNGs might even be the better choice to re-build your bankroll.

      As soon as you have built a proper bankroll for BRM again - be sure to follow it :) You can also use our TAF system (see my signature) to get your BR back on track.

      Good luck at the tables - and be sure to read articles, watch videos and to post hands :)

      Best regards,
      SoyCD
