  • Some Bankroll Advice Please

    Hey PSO People,

    I am about to start my $5.00 challenge tomorrow with hopes of being able to increase this 5.00 over the course of a month to hopefully at least 20.00.

    Since cash games are pretty much out of my range, I am wondering if anyone had any advice on whether this is a good bankroll strategy for $5.00 :

    Play 4 $0.10 360 man NLHE SNG's = $0.40 spent
    Play 2 $0.25 45 Man NLHE SNG's = $0.50 spent
    Play 1 $1.50 9 man NL Omaha Hi/Lo SNG = $1.50 spent
    Play 1 $1.50 9 man NLHE 50/50 SNG = $1.50 spent

    TOTAL SPENT = $3.90

    This, if I fail to earn any cash, will leave me $1.10 which I can then use to go "crazy" and attempt to play a $1.10 6MAX (2.5K Guar) and try to cash out in a MTT as I feel like I am getting better at these with my monthly play in the PSO and finishes in the top 500 on a semi consistent basis.

    Any suggestions would be very welcome !!!

    Thanks

    personally I find the 10 cent games a nightmare.

    but that said if you only play 4 of them and only 2 45 man 25 cent games.

    and 1 of each of the 1.50 STT's

    Its a recipe for disaster.

    Say you min cash in 2 of the 10 cent games, that's 40 cents for you and get a bad run in the other 6 games.... bomb bankroll gone..

    So personally i would pick one of the 10 cent or the 25cents and commit to that. (i would pick 25 cent games my self)

    Ahar010 ( a trainer here) is running a series on building from $5-100 bucks

    With Videos coming soon. Also 19Honu62 has lots of good micro bank building advice

    he also challenged the rest of us to join he and play 100 sit and go games all the same level and double up.

        Get your behind in as many Astronomer Freerolls and freeolls to win tickets for the .10 Facebook games as possible. Until you have freerolled your way up to at least $20.00 THAT'S where your focus should be.

        There is way too much variance in the .10 360's and .10 240 PLO's (especially since Stars knocked back the prizes in these for the .01 that goes to rake...) to think that they are anything even approaching a solid platform to grow a minimal BR. And while the variance is less in the .25 45 and 90 mans you only have enough in your ENTIRE BR for 20 plays in these. That's not nearly enough when you're talking about the entirety of your BR.

        You need to be grinding the freerolls including the League games until you have a more solid foundation.

        Once you hit $20.00 or better then you have enough to take a shot at trying to grind something like the .25 SNG's. But $20.00 should be your bare minimum in trying this and you should have a cutoff at around $10.00 on that. Hit that number and it's back to freerolling. BTW with everything that Stars offers for free here until you are BR fat you should never sleep on trying to have tickets for those Weekly Round 2 games. Just so long as you also have the time to invest as well.

        This isn't a "sexy" recipe for moving forward in the short term,but it's sexier than going Busto. YOUR plan is a recipe that very likely would produce that result.

        Now I'm assuming that's your BR---the $5.00. If not and you're just taking $5.00 of your BR aside for a "shot-taking" endeavor then I suggest picking ONE game that you are sufficiently BR'ed to try and stick with that game. Just so long as the $5.00 isn't too large a piece of your BR.

        When it comes to grinding up a very short BR try to remember this...

          Thanks Hey there, Thanks to you three for the advice......looking over your replies it definately does give me something to think about for sure. In answer to some queries Moxi: I am an Astronomers grinder........I think I have earned 4 tickets in the month of November and have 2 left. I usually do well in Galileo's and the Limit Omaha, but actually earned a ticket via Hubbles a few days ago. I tried my hand in the Stud Weekly last weekend, and needless to say, got my butt Kicked !!! Also, the 5.00 is representative of the 5.00 I will earn for finishing in 212th ( as of this post) in the PSO Open League for November, so I have for sure been grinding it out in those all month. Thanks so much Grade B for the links, I have exams this week, so will take a look on the weekend !! Going back to school in your 30's is tough ! Alsd, a huge CONGRATS on your Member of the Week win, and a sincere "all the best" in the tourneys !!!! umbup: Cheers Skinny

            with a $5.00 bank you have 4 choices
            1. play 2c/4cent limit poker only
            2. play 25 cent sit + goes only
            3. play 10cent sit + goes only


            Boku87 started with $5.00 and earned $100,000 in less than a year
            this is how he did it

            took $5.00 to 2cent/4cent limit
            once his bank reached $10.00 he played 10 cent and 25 cent sit and goes
            if bank falls to $4.00 return to 2cent/4cent limit

            if bank rises to $15.00 play 10 cent sit and goes , 25 cent sit and goes , and add in a few 50 cent sit and goes

            if bank drops to $10.00 stop the 50 centers
            if bank rises to $60.00 add in a few $1.00

                second the suggestion to stick to limit with low BR

                much less variance in limit than NL, but still plenty of donks at the table that you can easily grind up by playing solid TAG poker.

                Also I think limit is good for instilling discipline and getting used to calculating your odds and so on

                  Boku...how could I forget !!!!!? Thanks Chris, I actually followed this challenge when it was happening, and completely forgot about it this week !! Thanks so much for posting this on the thread, and all of the advice that everyone has given. I start my adventure in 5.00 BR management tomorrow and will post results every couple of days.

                    Another silly question

                    If I am to go to the .02/.04 FLHE tables, how much to take to a table, the minimum, or some other amount??

                    Also, what is a good return to remove myself from table?

                    Say i sit with 20 cents, and five hands later, have 46 cents. Do I get up and go ???

                    Cash games are confusing to me as it relates to BRM. Am i looking at making any profit and leaving the table, or just trying not to lost my initial .20 cents???

                      Ok, 2 points here. The first is quite easy, how much to take..

                      20c Is not enough in 2c/4c limit to start with. Personally I always join tables with 80c (i.e. 20 big bets)
                      Why 80c? The reason is you want to be able to get max value for your hands when you get them. Say for example you are dealt KK and villain gets KQs, this being low limit villiain may well reraise your raises pre flop, so pre flop you hit the max number of bets 8c. Board comes K rag rag, rainbow.. The villain will reraise any bet since he is an idiot and when he has top pair thinks he has won, you want to be able to keep raising him to get max number of chips into the pot .. If you came to the table with only 20c that would be the MAX you could get in, so you lose a lot of value. If on the other hand you have 80c to start you can raise each street to the max and get the max 48c in and pick up a much bigger pot. We choose 80c so you have a few chips lee way since you may lose a few chips before you win your first big hand.

                      Second question, when to stop, is a lot harder..
                      On the downside, if my stack drops to 40c I will consider leaving the table, depends how you are feeling, and whether your loss is simply variance, or if your play style is not working at that table for whatever reason. It depends how you feel about the table dynamic and the players on it.
                      As to the upside.. Again tricky.. For me I will usually be happy to call it a day if my stack goes over $1, but often I will play till it hits $1.40 or more, yesterday I found a table with 2 big fish on, and thanks to a nice run of cards I ended up going from $0.80 to $3.25 in a couple of hours! Normally I would have stopped earlier but these players were paying me off, so I stayed at the table until they left and then quit.
                      It really just depends how you are feeling, if you feel that you are playing well, and comfortable with the table, keep playing, if you feel that it is getting tricky, or you start to feel tilt due to bad cards or whatever then call it a day.

                      Grade B started a topic in one of the forums called "When to quit a table" which got plenty of good responses on this subject.

                          Dear SkinyButPhat,

                          I received some great advice on this subject a few weeks ago, you can read it here.

                            I think the 10 cent 360's are profitable, but I would want to be starting with at least $10. I would consider trying the 2 cent 990's with your roll.

                              I would sit with at least .80. If you happen to get in a hand that gets capped each street that alone is .48.

                              Personally I sit with $2.00 as I tend to sit at the same table for a while and get involved in some hands that I maybe shouldn't.
