      :diamond: Casual Bankroll Building :diamond:


      :spade: Intro

      I've played poker casually on and off for 5 years or so, never been a winning player in the long run. Haven't played in almost a year now. I have some spare time at the moment and I've decided to hit the cards and start a micro blog to see where I end up and to track my progress (I tend to tilt less if i'm blogging my progress). I'll post graphs after each daily session and any interesting plays.


      :spade: Plan

      I'll be starting with a BR of $50 at 2NL 6-Max. I'lll move up when i have 25BI for 5nl and go from there, May be sooner or later depending on how confident i'm feeling with my game. I have a lot to learn and to re-familiar myself with. I've almost forgotten how to play completely so I'll be a nit/fish to begin with no doubt!


      :spade: Bankroll

      Starting Bankroll - $50
      Current Bankroll - $63

      Starting Limit - 2nl
      Current Limit - 2nl
      Current Winrate - 16/100bb


      Wish me luck!

      First update, not much to say really its been fun playing some poker again!

      I'm break even after 2500 hands, Tilted a few hands away but i'm almost 3BI below EV so I'm fairly happy in that sense that I'm heading in the right direction!

      I need to work on my limping.. Lower stakes is it worth limping in as much as I am currently?

      VPIP 27.9 PFR 20.3

      Anyway's here's my graph!

      My second update at almost 5K hands, A quick update today as running short on time.

      Had a major swinging session got sucked out many times as you can see by my EV line I'm now almosy 6BI below it which has increased a lot. However I'm up was running hot towards the end of my session.

      Been watching videos online of Blackrain79 for micro's which I feel i have found some leaks and started playing a bit more aggressive and passive against the 2nl fish.

      Been working on my red line realising that most 2nl players are shooting with air its stayed around the -$10 mark for the past 2500 hands.

      Bankroll is now sitting pretty at just over $63
