      Hey folks..

      I've been playing poker for a couple of years - and now i'm trying to built up a BR (bankroll) from 10$ to 1000$ or maybe more :)
      any of you got some good advices to how it can be done? i'm up to 180$ now. so there's still some way to my goal.

      good luck to everyone out there.. :D

      you give very few details about the way you play... for example if you play SSS and feel confident enough to try BSS you might win more with this strategy (or master the higher levels which could also lead to a higher winrate (in terms of dollars not bets)), you can increase the number of tables you play at the same time... and on... and on...

      also if you made $180 out of $50 in 2 days, than you'll be at 1k in a short while... if it took you a year, you might need to improve your game and are just on a high right now... see what i am trying to say?

      to improve your game you could post hands on the sample hands forum and also try to make your mind up about other posted hands... also use the other content as articles, videos and coachings... especially rereading the articles is very useful i think... you think all the time... bla bla.. boring i know all this, but then you find something that you forgot or did not incorporate in your play...

      all the best for your goal

      Why FL builds bankroll over SnG and BSS ?

      Hello Badmemory,

      There is some excellant advice in thebigheizung85's reply and i would take note and implement these ideas.

      As for which strategy is best, then i would personally recommend that you play whatever you feel the most comfortable playing. Some play will prefer SnGs to build a bankroll, some will prefer SSS, some will prefer.......etc.

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Absolutely correct. You can try those other odd variants of poker, but ultimately FL will make you more ruggedly good looking and with a higher success rate when out on the pull. :s_cool:

      And build a better BR of course. :f_tongue:

      ..... has pokerstrategy not told you anything?

      Hold it, dont go to the bathroom for 3 days! then while finally peeing repeat "I WILL RESPECT BRM" 200 times, BEFORE you finish peeing. Then get to the ocean catch a fish and a shark. eat the shark so you can "become" a shark, then strip naked and rub the fish everywhere on your body, to represent in the future, the fish that you want all around you.

      Do that you'll make 1k in 20 hands TOPS.
