KrisyBubble22: Ya I have a Home Game here every Friday so its something. But no decent Tournaments with a nice cash prize.

Good like two summers ago I ran $5 up to $600 on the zoom so I am trying the same here again.

Ya I am after running it up to $35 playing 0.01/0.02.

What do you play most?


Ohhh nice! Is the home game just with friends? Cash game?

I just moved to 10NL on 888 Smile

How about selling some of the package in The Market Place?

It could still be worth a shot without the rebuy and add-on.

Edit: actually I'm not sure how it would work if you sold some action if the prize is a seat to another tourney.

Well if I won the ticket to the Tourney then you would get a percentage of that also. Its the Irish Open so a massive prize pool.

Yeah that could work. Might be worth a thought doing it if you don't want to go without an add-on or rebuy.

No I dont want to go without an addon or rebuy as you lose some competitive advantage. I think it is to late though to put it up as a thread.

Hi just a quick update. I am now playing 0.02/0.05 and have my roll up to $75. I achieved Silver-star for the month and am aiming to reach it again this month. I was going to try move up stakes pretty quickly but am now reconsidering based on the advice given. I am going now use a 15 stack rule and not move up until I reach $150.

I have also had some deep runs in the few MTTs I have a played with a 40th finish in $2 progressive knockout and 9th in a $2 freezout. This improvement seems to be from the purchase of the new HUD.

Nice work buddy! Do you set goals for each month or basically just try to grind as hard as possible?

Jon-PokerVIP: Nice work buddy! Do you set goals for each month or basically just try to grind as hard as possible?


It depends really. Last month was to just grind as hard as I could. But I set a goal this month to at least double my roll and be after moving up in stakes. It depends in what I need to achieve really. If I am just wanting to stay at certain stakes then its just grind.

I did not have a great day yesterday. My roll took a bit of a beating. I ended up loosing three stacks. There was some horrible beats, but as mentioned variance is high in these games so I am not going to dwell on it.

Hopefully today will be a better day overall and I can get some of it back.

Wish me Luck.

Another quick update.

Had a bad week up until last night when I got 5th in the $2.20 progressive knockout on Stars. This meant a $190 cash and $40 in bounties. I also had some success at the zoom tables.

All in all my bankroll is up to $290. I am also half way to my goal of Silverstar for the month. And the move up to 0.05/0.10 should help me help me achieve this easier.

Wow it has been a very long time since I have been on this. Its crazy reading were I was in my Poker journey. Well things have changed allot since my last post. I currently do not play zoom anymore. I do not even play on PokerStars anymore.

Completely fell out of Love with the game not long after this and stopped playing for a good while. I recently got back into it and I am playing all tournaments on PartyPoker, low buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $11. I am also currently being staked and I am in their academy at the moment so learning allot and bringing my game on huge amounts.

Well I hope everybody that I have contacted on this is going well and still in the game. Would be nice to hear how everyone is getting on now 2 years down the line.

Look forward to hearing from everybody.

Over and Out.SmileSmileSmile
