Playing within my bankroll

I am currently on a new poker quest. It may sound the same as some of my prior goals, but this one is a little different.  I am trying to play online based on my bankroll at the sites I am playing.

Ideally, I should have a bankroll on a poker site with equivalent to 100 buy-ins. If I am playing .02/.05 No Limit games with a buy-in of $5.00, my bankroll should be $500.00.

But I am unwilling at this time to deposit more funds at the sites as I have been losing. So I will go with what I have left and try to grow those funds organically, meaning I need to win more than I lose.

I am also mixing it up in that I am playing in step tourneys hoping to advance to a higher step and use that step’s  ticket to play a tourney that would give me a change to win to increase my bankroll by winning.

In the past, I have had more than a couple of poker friends suggest that I was playing too high a game for my bankroll and it turned out they were right. Sometimes it takes a sharp whack on the back of the head to understand I guess.

Currently I am playing mostly on Full Tilt Poker, an affiliate,  but that is because they offer a Mobile Poker app that I can use to play Rush Poker on my Droid smartphone.

I will try to keep you update with the interesting things that happen along the way.

And thank you for your suggestions and comments.  You have really helped me out.
