Well, this is a big step. Since cashing in a PokerStars UK freeroll I've been on a bankroll building grind. I got lucky in some tournaments before hovering around the $24 mark.
However, a very successful spell on the double or nothing STTs got me to $40 before a heater at PLO2 (12-tabling and playing tighter than a duck's you know what yields great results against players who stack off 200BBs with top pair) and a $14 score in a 45-seat $1.10 tournament.So now I have $70. I'm moving strictly to the ring games now because 35 buy-Ins is enough for me.I'm sticking with PokerStars for now but once I hit enough for a NL10 bankroll I'll deposit at William Hill. I could then be clearing a 100% deposit bonus while earning.So after a chillaxing weekend in Bristol I'm beginning the NL2 grind at PokerStars. Of course, student loan and insurance claim (bike crash) are both imminent - that could see me make a $500 deposit at VictoryPoker; a cool 300% first deposit bonus and what looks like some savvy software.Before that though, let's get grinding. I reckon 8 tables of 6-max NL2 playing about 15/13/4. That reminds me, I need to buy Hold 'em Manager...
