    Well, I' free today and surf some website and found this very interesting site

    bonus chasing grinder

    this guy build his bankroll from $300-$500, I'm not sure but now exactly 1 years past
    from $3000 (Feb 2008) now he sit at $17,150 (Feb 2009) :socool:.

    One of very success grinder. Some of his post very interesting and he post close to every week from first date he had $3000 to today $17,150... you will see every progress of his bankroll growth.

    For me I'm now sit at $1,785.01 (Actually it come close to $2000 and down to $1650 by hit series of bad streak and bad read down about $350 from cash game, however past couple days it seem back to normal and back to $1785) from overall deposit about $620 at 25 October (first deposit $32 at Doyles and then every month deposit about $100-$150 to the new room).

    Actually the over all time deposit will be $970 .. because when I first play poker I deposited about $350 at June 2008 that times and I played like every donk/fish will play... limp every hand, can't fold pairs, tilt easily, don't care about kicker, don't protect hand when drawy board, bad value bet, called big bet on gutshot draw, only focus on my hand and I lost it all $350 in 4 days by play all days at $0.05/$0.10!! what a fish lose $350 at 0.05/0.10 ...... and then I stop for a while play some freeroll until close to end of October month I'm very confident about I can win and I choose to try again one times and that the beginning of my new bankroll today.

    Now I target to $2500+ before end of March, by playing some private tourney, $20+$2 sit&go, and $3-$6 Large Multi-table tournament and regular 6 maxs $0.25/$0.50 and $0.50/$1.00.

    And how about your bankroll, and your plan? :socool:
    I think bonus chasing grinder he plan very well about bankroll management and how to find opportunity to increse his bankroll, and hope this website give you some idea to make your bankroll growth.

    Depending how serious you are about reaching your $2500 target by the end of March, you may want to figure out a more specific plan to get there, not just what levels you intend to play at.

    For instance, let's say I want to make $1000 by then, and that I know my historic ring game win rate is $10 per hour for 1-tabling, $8x2 for 2-tabling, $6x3 for 3-tabling. Using this info, I can figure out how many hours of ring play I'll need to plan depending on how much I single vs 2 or 3-tabling.

    It gets more complex if I throw SNGs and MTTs into the mix, but the basic idea is still the same, to make sure I know how much I'll need to play during March so that my EV is $1000. And as the month progresses, I can evaluate vs my plan and adjust it as necessary.

    :socool: You must be a guy who play cash regularly right?, Well actually I just start playing serious cash game, just move from a main tournament & sit&go player. For Multitabling I can do only 2 table at the same times, more than that it seem like loose play for me :nuts:.

    Thank for about planing suggestion :)
