  • Back in town

    Hi guys

    Been gone for a bit, had a LOT of stuff going on at home and was in a position where I was playing poker with a scared money attitude, since RL problems/concerns were forcing my behaviour and led to me tilting more than I liked.

    Long story short, I am in a happier place and looking to dip my toe back into the Poker arena.

    I would appreciate any advice, especially on any tried+true tactics that could have updated in the last year.

    My plan will be to start out with a $50 stake and run 50c SNG 45/90 man games and work my roll up. I'd be keeping to a 50-100x, only stepping up or dropping down when it dropped outside this range.

    Stop loss of 5 games per day, playing no more than 10 games per day to avoid burn out and tilt.

    Let me know, what do you think?

    Good to be back, speak soon

    Plan sounds solid...remember,don't skimp on studying and reviewing your play in order to play. Should be as close to a 50/50 division of your time as possible.

    GL and crush it.

      Follow a solid bankroll management strategy to avoid variance and keep your emotions in check- if you go through a bad beat and know you're steaming quite badly, stop playing immediately and go on a walk or something.
      And just remember you'll need patience on the way to the top.

      Good luck at the tables mate.
