So I won some money :)

Post by Alecizzo23 on Wed May 13, 2009 4:04 pm

I FINALLY placed in a freeroll to win some cashola Smile haha but ya what i did was I played on full tilt with play chips, made 500,000, entered the 500k play chip freeroll that has a prize pool of $40 real money paying out to the top 18. 1st gets $5. 2nd gets $3. and 3-18 get $2.
Well the tourney only had sixty something players but I played my cards right and payed attention to my opponents betting patterns and tells and such. Avoided a very sticky situation early on by folding AK pre flop UTG after I open raised to 2/3 the pot and got re raised by a middle position player to like 1.5X the pot and then a raise All-In from the small blind. I had a very rough decsion if i wanted to stake my life in the tourney this early on to this hand... took my time and I folded only to see the mid position player with 10's and the blind with ACES!!! Very happy with my play. So I continued on and was playing very tight, winning with only the nuts. and what do ya know... I finished 2nd! Yipee! haha
So with my $3 I decided on how to build my bankroll. Tell me what you think of my strategy. Well I'm only playing .01/.02 NL HE ring games with nine players and buying in for the minimum. What I actually like doing and is working for me pretty great is multi-tabling. I make myself play up to 8 tables at once and am very picky on hand selection and position. My table play involves no slow play and I bet my winning hands big, not worrying if they call or not and am very happy to take the pot down as soon as possible so that I can't lose to a suckout! haha. and I used to think that it was a good strategy buying in for the minimum so that I couldn't lose that much and then as soon as I had won a pot or two only making like %10 of my buy in i'd get up from the table and sit at a new one just so I could "bank" the extra few cents. Realized that was dumb dumb dumb. SO now I am sitting at the tables and I try to set myself a time limit depending on when i'm playing and how long I have. Usually an hour or two per table. And I don't get up from the tables and let my stack build!!! Seems to be working pretty good cause generally after an hour or so I have doubled my buy in at 75% of the tables and made a good profit. Smile
By doing this I built my roll up to 11 bucks last night! But decided to have some fun and played a $5 SNG... lost Sad lol but its alright cause my strategy at the ring games seems to be full proof Smile Hopefully I can turn my $3 into millions!
What do ya'll think of my ideas? Any suggestions? Comments? Concerns? lol let me know and ya i'd appreciate any advise you got! Thanks for your time Smile Very Happy

Okay, 1st off - whoa whoa what?! They have real money freerolls on full tilt that you can buy into for play chips?! Very interesting. Never knew that before. Ty for the info.

2nd - Congrats on a strong tournament finish in what was undoubtedly one wild tourney!

3rd - Your strategy for building a bankroll sounds solid. I particularly how you are looking to bring in a very small fraction of your bankroll to the table. This is smart because it will allow you to suffer some bad beats and cold runs without getting wiped out down to $0.
I don't necessarily use your same strategy for "leaving the table," but I 100% agree with you in that you're utilizing a method that has proven effective and is working for you. The idea is to grow the bankroll, and as long as that's what's going on, you're doing something right, that's for sure!

Good luck to you on the felts.

P.S. Don't miss out on this weekend's donkhard.com freeroll. Hopefully we can boost your bankroll up a little further.
