##### 100\$ BR - how far can you get?
May 12, 2009, 06:13:11 PM
Hey gang,

I've started a little project and thought I would share it with you all (if anyone is interested).  I'm currently coaching my cousin in poker and have given him a small bankroll of 100\$ to play with online.

What the plan is is to teach him Money Management.  But it got me thinking, "I wonder how far 100\$ can get me?"  - Ideally as far as I want.  So I put a little challenge out to a couple poker buddies to see who can last the longest/win the most.

If anyone wants, I'll periodically post my results here.  Strictly sit n' goes.  We can play any limit, but they gotta be sit n' go.

Cheers,
Matt

PS - currently I'm sitting at 178\$

I'll post entire results when/if I get to 200\$

just hit the 200\$ mark, so I have doubled my bankroll.  I use a progression in buy-ins to help recoup after a couple losses.  I always seemed to win when playing bigger buy-ins (always a nice break).

good question Clint,

although I'd say no, there probably is a bit of change (more tight playing).  I do believe overall it's very similiar.  With the SNG's style, it's all about patient play.

Cheers,
Matt

LOL Matt,

I started with a \$200 BR a few months back and its now \$10,000.

I like your strategy, once thing though, I see you have not lost when you play a \$16 game, what would you do next if you lost a \$16 game? Play a \$30 or something???

Your right patience is key on SNG's. But I play heads up and I cant just keep folding or I would never get called when I raise.

Cheers
D

Hey D,

Head's up is a totally different game and your right, you can't just sit around and wait for good hands.  My tips were for SNG's.

If I lost a 16\$ game, I would keep playing at that level until I lost 3 games, then up it to around the 30\$ level.  I play in stages.

I haven't played since hitting the 200 mark, but hopefully next week I'll get a couple games in.

Cheers,
Matt

Matt,  have been playing your way with great success. Far less stressfull than my HU way.

I suppose the only difference is I play 3 at a time, its easy to multi table 9 player tables.

Happy days
