SNG Poker Bankroll project, update #2

Saturday, June 28th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Building, Poker Projects | No Comments

Follow up on the SNG Bankroll Building Project. I am still playing the 50% double up SNG at Inter Poker, where half of the contenders double up on the buy in. But because of a software update the lobby currency is now only UK Sterling. So the table is now £5+£0.5 which is approximately $10. Very high buy ins compared to my very low bankroll. But it seems like it's the poker gods intention that I should have a go at the higher table. And don´t ever go against the poker gods! This is of Read more [...]

Michael’s SNG Bankroll Building Project

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Building, Poker Projects | No Comments

Hi Guys I have finally found the time to play some more poker. So will have a go at building a bankroll by playing SNG's at Inter Poker (Cryptologic). I have deposited $60 and will start playing $5 ($0.5 rake) SNG's and gradually move up in buy ins. This gives a rather small bankroll compared to the buy in, only 10 x buy in (plus rake), so will have to try to avoid back luck... How does one avoid bad luck?? My first goal is to stabilize my bankroll for $5 buy ins. Should in theory have Read more [...]

Saturday, June 21st, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Building, Poker Projects | No Comments

I have been really busy this week, working as a research project manager during the day and on the PokerBRB Community in the evenings.

The downside to my busy week has manifested itself in my Bankroll Building Project; I have only managed to play 6 session hours since my last update. On top of this I haven't won a single Read more [...]

Poker Bonus and Rakeback

Saturday, June 21st, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Rakeback | 1 Comment

This article is a part of the Poker Rakeback series. As a response to the article "10 Questions About Rakeback" I was asked whether a rakeback deal results in a forfeit of the poker room sign up and reload bonuses. This is actually not always the case, which makes a rakebackback deal even more valuable for you when building a online poker and online casino bankroll. I will elaborate on three of the bonuses given with a rakeback deal at PokerBRB. Inter Poker When signing up at Inter Poker Read more [...]
