I am dealing with a small bankroll at the moment and with this you cannot play underolled. Tonight i did out of frustration of me being completely able to combat the 10 euro/dollar rebuy tournies that most sites offer and being annoyed of playing the smaller sngs which are a hell of a grind for smaller profits. Started with 300 euros in my account and now im left with 100.

I enjoy playing mtts out and out but obviously i have put myself in this spot so im going to take the fact i only lost 200 euros tonight "gambling" my roll, and carry on playing the smaller games.

The big bonuses are due in soon which will double my br of around 400 quid so that will be nice. I am probably going to spread my roll and try and target 2 to 20 table mtts which i wud have to say i am an expert in for the lower levels of say $5-$50. If i just stuck to these i would be a wealthy man eventually. This basically limits me to playing full tilt and pokerstars which i won't mind doing if i am winning loads. Need to sort out my rakeback on FT though cos i know they offer 27% but at the moment they aren't letting me have any.

If anyone knows of anymore sites for good low level mtt sngs leave a message, haven't really checked the sng section on ipoker or party poker so i shud have a check there but anywhere else?

Its a sad sight to see me on less than 1K of a bankroll but with every downfall comes a lesson and i feel i am on the right road now. Mainly it's to stick to a strict br management scheme where i can play my poker without fear of going broke. With this i will definately prosper as i am a great mtt player, so in time i should be hitting a £10K br again and still have my heart set on having £25K by June of 2010 by just being a robotic mtt mastermind with no tilt. Will see how it goes. Should seem farfetched to a lot of ppl that i think i can do this in my current spot but i have always been ambitious and never totally deluded. So Gl to me i guess :P

Well, that went shit!


Tried to 16 table grind cash for a whole month and live off the rakeback but turns out that i am shit at cash poker. So many things that i am just not suited to on it, maybe if i got a poker tracker it would help but at the moment i just seem to tilt on it or find it disastorously boring. I started the rake chase with 3500 euros and ended before i lost it all on 1000 euros. But at the moment i only have 200 euros becos the 1000 total comes when i have received all of my bonuses by the middle of next month.

To add a little spice to the proceedings, i won a 2K trip to Slovenia. Included is a 1100 euros tourney that has a 4 day structure for around 200 runners i believe. First takes home around 50K. Im selling 30% of my action for this if anyone is interested in taking a piece, im selling it at 5% = £50. So get in touch if you are interested.

Atm i am just concentrating on my bread and butter which is the multis and low level sngs (6man turbos and 20 mans). Low buy ins tho annoyingly because of my situation but however i have such an edge on the games here that i shud be looking at 100 a day profit in just the fiver games. Would love it if the tenner games were just as fishy wen my br increases. Running at 10% roi for these sngs which is nice, but infortunately not running too well at the multis but these results dnt affect me because of the nature of how i am exiting the tournies. Bad beats left right and centre which i can't do anything about, perhaps tho i am getting too low before pushing and tht is affecting my longevity in a tourney, maybe i shud be accumulating more non showdown chips but this is always tricky in the lower levels when you get perennial calling stations that don't know a cat from a dog.

It's gonna be a tough old grind now to get back to my heyday of a £10K+ bankroll but its a sure road and i am a capable tourney player. Cash games aren't for me atm tho. I think i have the perfect grounding to become a great cash game player (capabale of playing up to 16 tabs well and quite good at reading trends) but i just don't know whats what there. I am not confident at all about what certain raises mean in certain spots and i just need a helping hand there in cracking the enigma that is the 6 man cash game.

All in all im in a disastorous spot compared to what i really shud be on but i have no doubt that i have enough to be well off from this game so i just hope my hands hold and i get lucky when going in from behind.

Peace out

P.s get in touch about backing me in Slovenia

Jay Z Calls me out!

LOL a different sorta post today. Scrolled youtube and found the clip i was longing for. Proof that Jay Z had a little chat with me and went as far as emulating my dancing in front of the whole crowd, even had the opportunity to go on the big screen to show everyone else there what i was about. So if anyone has some disputes over me not being able to dance i can always show them this without having to actually pretend as if Jay z (one of the biggest names in the music industry) said he liked the way i danced.

Pretty immense night and without doubt one of my favourite artists. Here's the link, btw watch from around 1.50 to 2.20 and also notice right at the end of the vid he points towards me as he exits the stage :):):):)

13 table cash grinding FTW!


I am looking to grind £3000 rake for the month from 13 tabling 0.25/0.5 . This is after my BR getting dangerously low, and i need a sort of less variance filled venture to get me picked up again. I have just over 2.5k to do this with and i know it sounds risky (because it probably is) but i think i will be fine and for some reason i won't be listening to nay sayers about this strategy. All they will do is aggrevate me. I'm gonna go ahead with this, play the odd tournament to suppleament the winnings and hopefully all will be well. tbh i have 50 buyins at this level and will be playing with 13 of them at any one time, i think i should be ok to get through just the first month break even and if i can it should be plain sailing because the £1500 ish in rakeback bonuses should have me in a good way

I will be back on later to look at everyone elses glorious posts before i lock myself away from humanity and 13 table for 8 hours a day 6 days a week. I'm determined to do well and this needs to be done for me to play tournaments only in the future with a much much safer roll. The switch date back to tournaments i wouldn't mind advice on, what roll should i be looking at to play them safely if i am thinking of 12 tabling $20r - $100f ?

Cheers ppl.
