      Hello PS :)

      I know some of u recieved the 50$ free bankroll capital.. But what did u start playing with it?

      I have my 50$ on cake-poker. So it would be nice to hear what u played to get your bankroll started.. Did u play 2.2$ DoN's, NL10? NL4? yeah?

      What? :)

      And.. What do you think is the best way to start playing with the 50$?

      NL10 SSS is a good way to start, just remember to stick to the graphs and BRM imo

      Start with SSS at NL10, then study/grind like a monkey boy.

      Or start with FL at $.10/$.20, then study/grind like a monkey boy.

      GL!

      WOW! Thx for the quick answer's guys :)

      Well im not much fan of short-stacking, but maybe ill give it ago somewhere along the road.. (now? :) )

      I think the best way is to grind 2,2$ DON and live of the bonus/rakeback until the bankroll reaches some more healthy status0.

      What du you guys think of that?

      @ roshanparanoid

      I think you should play the 1$ until u get at least 100$ - And then maybe play the 2$ if Pokerstars have those.

      Started with NL2 BSS. Most important is to stick to BRM and learn. GL

      Cake-Poker does not have NL2 and that's a shame :(

      I think i will play 2.2$ Double-Ups - I figured if i play around 1000 of them pr. month i will make fairly good earnings from bonus/rakeback.

      As far as I can remember I immediately played $3.50 superturbos, and got really really lucky... however every time I try play them now I lose more than I put in. So I definitely wouldn't recommed it with only $50..

      Hey there,

      Well i started out playing my fishy strategy thinking $50 free yesssssssssss! But then i actually started playing SSS to do some bonus clearing. I cleared my bonus relatively quick and also made some money ;) , however at times it was kinda boring. Then moved to BSS and now im playing NL25 BSS SH :)

      Good luck and best regards,

      -Jack

      SSS a little, than SNG's than BSS than FL than BSS than FL than SNG's and i will probably stick to them for a while since i really feel that there is money to be made here and i can beat the game.

      I blew my $50 in highly interesting and spectacular fashion, often sticking it all on one table of N:50 or NL100. My fondest memory is of being on tilt and going all in with A7 off suit and winning a 4-way all in with A high.

      Please, PLEASE stick to the bankroll management poker strategy advises. If you don't know what bankroll management is, please read the very first strategy article again.

      I played 0.05/0.10 and a few 1$ sngs (one of them I finished fourth :<) and was like 17$ ahead, now I'm back to 53 or 54$ because I was drunk last night and decided to play =( Don't do this! But I'm planning on winning some cash tonight ;-)

      SSS NL10. I think if you're new to online poker this is the easiest way to start. Definitely follow BRM but maybe even a more conservative one. I lost 30BI in my current downswing in 4 sessions.

      good luck

      Well i really dosn't matter anymore.

      I really followed BRM strategy, but 50$ and running worse than ever gave me the final punsh.. now im struggling with af 5$ BR and trying to doble that, and then wait for about 10$ in rakeback :(

      Its typical that the downswing will hit when ur really trying!
