BLOG – building a bankroll? Ask Dusty Schmidt

Wednesday, 31 March 2010

Matt Perry’s bankroll building challenge is still going strong, though he’s not a millionaire yet. Speaking of which, we have one of them answering your questions in the Bluff Europe forums…

My PokerStars bankroll now stands at a mighty $104.27. In a few weeks I’ve turned a freeroll cash into a working microstakes bankroll, which I should be happy with but quite frankly I’m sick of $0.01/$0.02. I’ve been playing PLO as well to spice it up but at these stakes all you have to do is sit tight and wait for AAxx or 9876 double-suited and get it in.

Onto more pertinent news for Bluff Europe’s loyal readers – we have a special treat for you in our forums. You may or may not have seen the stupendously well-written review of Dusty “leatherass” Schmidt’s new book, Treat Your Poker Like a Business, in the magazine or at the bottom of the homepage.

Well, Schmidt has kindly agreed to take questions from Bluff Europe’s readers in our forum. There’s a thread here where you can bombard the poor guy with all your idiotic poker queries. I know I will be.
Schmidt is one of online poker’s biggest success stories, despite playing a tight and solid style across 16 tables that isn’t exactly great TV material. No min-5betting 86o for leatherass; he’ll wait for a better spot.
Of course, this isn’t exactly detrimental to his game – the man has over $3,000,000 in earnings and is a member of Team PokerStars Online. This year, though, he’s going to play the WSOP so we might see a bracelet for the consummate grinder yet.

Right, back to the penny tables for me, then…
