What's the best way to create a decent bakroll when you've got hardly any money to start off with?
There's a discussion on the Bluff Europe forums about the challenge of building a bankroll from virtually or literally nothing.One of our regular posters, elway7, has reached the €170 mark from a €11 deposit. That's bloody good going - the hard part is over; the point has come where that's a full bankroll - albiet for microstakes cash games or tournaments.I'm on a similar endeavour now - until my 13-month-long insurance claim is settled, I'm as broke as Stu Ungar after a 4-day; 2 kilogram bender at the racetrack.So having cashed in one of PokerStars' £2,000 freerolls (unfortunately for you guys the last one was last night. I apologise, genuinely, for not bringing them to your attention) I had $0.55.I then came third in a $0.25 90-man tournament and cashed in a $0.10 240-man PLO turbo, enjoying the silky caresses of Lady Luck the entire time.Two nights ago I played some $1.1 Double or Nothings and won a $1.1 90- man to take my bankroll to $30.Last night... well, NL2 did not go well. I lost about $7 in $1 and $2 STTs then dropped $11 at NL2.Yeah, I was not picking up cards. Now, when Chris Ferguson took $1 to $20,000 he didn't play cash games with less than 20 100BB buy-ins. Personally I don't think that's enough, I like at least 30, if not 40. I am a lot looser than Jesus; I like to 3-bet; I like to steal pots.So why did I play with 15 buy-INS? Well, I think I can afford to take shots at these monkey stakes and I just have to move back down to $1 Double or Nothings and $0.25 tournaments. Let's root for a few final tables tonight though.
