Joined this site last night to discuss my ongoing target. I plan to emulate that of Chris Jesus Ferguaon. However unlike him i have started with $50. at the moment i am sitting at 280.
I Started top build my bankroll by playing 6 handed $3.4 SNGs on stars and grinded my way to $200 where i started cash. Posting $12 on 10 25 cent tbles. After a damn lot of grinding i got to 250 and decided i wanted more action to win quicker.
Therefore i have decided to play four tables of $20 at 25 50 cent tables. A little naughty i know but if it fails i will drob back down. thankfully yesterday i won $30 and now my poker blogging friends you have been filled in on how i made it to $280.
So far today i am up $40 nevertheless ive been playing for four hours. not a great wage $10 an hour lol.
i have had a few very interesting hands. For example i had made it up to $75 on one of my 6 handed tables and was holding AK. I elected to raise to $2 it folds round to the small blind who pops it up to $6.5. Didnt have a great read on his style so i just flat called.
The flop comes down Ac Ks Qd
of which he bets $5 a ery inducive bet into a $13 pot. Most people would just raise it hear and now but i sensed strength and decided to just flat call of which a 4c came off a meaningless card but i still felt strongly that i was behind to QQ. My opponent fired another bet of $13 of which i decided to fold having put him on QQ.
I asked in the chatbox what he had of which he said J 10 for the nut straight and was sik at me folding.
Ive only been playing for a couple of years but i feel like my reads are getting better and i stress to anyone starting out to trust in their reads youllll make bad folds but i would rest assured youll save a lot more cash in the long run.
i wish i got a dollar every time my dad says i have to call(even though he thinks hes behind)because id be a damn rich guy. Please dont addopt this approach trust your reads and choose to fold it will pay off.
My bankroll is now sitting at $300 which im extremely pleased with after the hand i just stated which would have cost me $50 if id have pushed all in.
