      Hello everyone,

      I started play poker ,I think one and half year ago. First I deposited my money to the Poker Stars and start playing cash game (without any experiece and bankroll management). So I think that everyone know this sitution :] I losed hole stack in few days.
      So I was try to found any information about poker and I found pokerstrategy.com. It was incredibile. Free 50USD starting capital and many free videos and informations . That was perfect for me. So I start study few months ago realy hard.

      Then I started play a 1USD SnG´s on Full tilt poker . And my bankroll growing slowly up . When I had few dollars up and experience too, I´v tryied play some MTT´s ( 180man SnG and 90man SnG ) and I win . After that I started play 2USD SnG´s and my bankroll was still growing up. Then I played another tournays and win some of them . And now... now im playing on 5USD SnG´s just few days .

      I think that every player have to set a goal´s for him . So There is mine goals :

      Short term goals :

      :diamond: read all articls for silver member
      :diamond: watch all silver member videos
      :diamond: move up to 10 USD SnG
      :diamond: take a FTP bonus
      :diamond: make a 1.000 USD
      :diamond: became GOLD member


      Long term goals :

      :club: became a diamond member
      :club: make a 5.000 USD
      :club: make good monthly incomes from poker and STOP working :s_biggrin:
      :club: play big live tourney

      So thats mine goals :]

      My BR : $325

      In few days I´ll post my graph . See you soon
      So "Shuffle up and deal"

      Hello again,

      So Im back from the trip to austria :]

      I played yesterday some SnG´s ,I think it was 30 SnG´s and I was up $114
      I use 50BB rule for next level,But I have to think about that,because Im not sure about variance on higher levels .

      So the $10 SnG will come soon =)
      The graph I will send on the evening or tomorow because I downladed Poker Tracker 3 yesterday.

      Im ITM in this level ($5) in 71% (it is looks good for me)
      My BR : $439

      And what about goals ?

      Short term goals :

      :diamond: read all articls for silver member
      :diamond: watch all silver member videos
      :diamond: move up to 10 USD SnG
      :diamond: take a FTP bonus
      :diamond: make a 1.000 USD
      :diamond: became GOLD member

      I hope that you discuse with me about this blog :f_biggrin:

      Hi AcesBreaker, nice blog, good luck :)

      I just wanted to suggest that you use a more conservative bankroll management, since variance may be a killer some times. I'd suggest something between 70-100 buy ins, to move to a higher buy in level...

      Hello LetchLord,

      You are right about the buy-ins. I think that I have to be more conservativ !!! For now I feel strong on this level,but it is only because I played only around 80 or 100 games on 5$ SnG´s,so that is small sample.
      I will try to use something around 80 buy-ins for higher level . It will be safly I think .

      Thank you for your opinion

      So hello again,

      here I attach the graph of my development in SnG´s
      It is only for 45 tournays because I downloaded the Poker Tracker 6 days ago . And only in trial version. So I cannot modify the graph .

      This is only money won/per tournays



      so today I played only 4 tables

      1x 1st place
      2x 2nd place
      1x 4th place :-( (KK to AA)

      BR : 487$

      After seeing your first few posts, I don't wanna be mean, but it needed to happend. A downswing. It is impossible to win so much in a row with SnG's. ( Trust me I know what im talking about)

      Good luck with your journey.

      Good luck, and remember that we always think the upswings are 'business as usual' (i.e. are expected or somehow reasonable and therefore our right) where as the downswings are always 'brutal' or unfair.

      Anyway, glad that you're winning again - keep it up.
