Getting Started – Games to Play
First of all, I am playing at PokerStars. I just like their software the most. I have seen how much loose money is out at different sites, but this is the one I enjoy playing, and it’s all about enjoyment right now.
With a bankroll around $5, I will be very selective with what I play. Right now, I will play $.10 buy-in NLHE and PLO tournaments (PokerStars has these in 360 and 240 person SNG formats, respectively) and the occasional $.10 NLHE MTT. If I play a cash game, it will be 1c/2c with the minimum $1 buy-in. I will avoid these though, because it could be devastating to my stack.
I also have one freeroll ticket remaining – and at some point, I’ll take a shot at that one. Again, I have deposited no money to get to this point – the $5 I have now is from a freeroll.
One last thing… I will not be purchasing poker tracking software until my BANKROLL can afford to do it without having to move down limits to do so. That might be a mistake, but we’ll see. I do keep meticulous records in Excel – though not hand histories.
