It is a good thing that I am not dependent on my earnings from poker as I seem to be stuck. My bankroll needle stands at $171.00 or about 34 buy-ins of A$5.00 each.
Last night I played in my second Guarantee tourney on Full Tilt Poker, an affiliate site. The last one I attempted had over 2,000 people and I finished in the 600’s or way out of reach of the money that the top 189 would earn.
I saw that there was a modest $2k prize to be divided by about 12 or so winners and I chose that one. Of course the game being played was Limit RAZZ which I know but I do not have a very good success rate with. It might have to do what the fact that I play it poorly. In any case, I finished 61st out of 90 players. Still not close enough to cash.
What was I thinking. I do play better at No Limit Hold’em Tourneys than I do at RAZZ.
I still have a few Step tickets left that I will use to enter some No Limit Hold’em Tourneys. I will attempt to enter a modestly paying event that has less than 200 players. It is not that I don’t like playing a large field, but I feel that I smaller group is easier to work with. I once played a freeroll witn 8,299 players and came it second. Sadly, only 1sr place won any cash.
My goal is to increase my bankroll until I have over $500. At that point I will attempt to move up to the $10 buy-in cash games.
Do you have bankroll goals? How do you move the needle forward?
