  • Serious Downswing - Where to go now?

    Hi all! Some of you may have seen me at the tables. Over the last 2 months I've managed to get my bank roll to around $500. Only thing is I've had incredibly bad bank roll management. To be fair I've never even considered bank roll management but after reviewing my game I've gathered its crucial. My bank roll has now been reduced to a measly $30, after a series of $8 $15 and $35 buy-in 180 people MTT's. The reason why I've continued playing at these levels is because I have placed highly in around 10 games so as I lost I eventually earned what I had lost by placing. Therefore my bankroll stayed around the $500 mark. However after this downswing I now found myself in this position.....

    So what MTT's levels do I enter now? I much prefer MTT's as I feel I have a fairly strongish strategy (even though I have alot still to learn). I'm thinking of avoiding the $1 180's as I find there just a lottery. People pushing here there and everywhere. However the bankroll management tutorials suggest otherwise. Do I reduce the amount of players I play against? Advice would be greatly appreciated.

      unless your re loading your gona have to play these games if you want to use proper br management. You could just stick to the nothing over $2.50 mtts but your gona have to run deep in in one or two of them to see any profit or get back to your starting roll. Im not sure what you prefer playing but i personally wouldnt play any turbos with this roll. Game selection is crucial at these stakes.
