Alexforth's Poker Blog
« on: October 02, 2009, 06:26:43 AM »
Hello everybody!

My nickname is Alexforth I live in Germany and am a passionated and pretty experienced poker player. However I have a problem: I to often steam all my winnings(not paycheck!) away. This is pretty the reason I would like to start a poker blog of mine. I hope the fact that I will share my everyday poker experience with you will make me more responsible with my bankroll.

My starting point is a deposit of 20 Euro at 770-poker. My goal is a bankroll of 2500$ so I can play full stack NL100(blind 0,5/1 Dollar) or PLO100 shorthanded. My actual goal is a good bankroll management and not to go broke by donking the money away while playing BJ or to high limits.

I started yesterday and am already at 24 Euro by playing shorthanded NL10 tables.

Welcome Alexforth.

This is great - I'm looking forward to your poker blog and to see how you get on.

I saw some great advice from one of the poker pros.

He said to never sit at a table with more than 5% of your entire bankroll and make sure you sit at the right table stakes.  5% of your bankroll should see you through 100 big blinds so ensure you pick the right stakes.  If you win and you are holding 10% of your bankroll at the table, leave and recalculate 5% of your bankroll and sit down at the appropriate table with 5% again.

Im not trying to tell you how to suck eggs but bankroll management at your level is paramount.

I wish you all the very best of luck and Im looking forward to your posts.

Bankroll balance: 26,69 Euro.

Thank you girls.

I think it was Chris Ferguson who gave that advice in conjuction with his "from-zero-to-hero-challenge". In 16 month he built a bankroll of 10,000$ out of nothing, just by playing freerolls at the beginning.

I actually know this rules and really appreciate that you took the time to post them here, blue. So far I didnt follow them and played NL10. However I decided to go down to NL2 now, as I had some big draws to hit yesterday to make the plus. And I think it is a good metal practice, too.

The good thing is: I have some mansion club points which are good for 3x20+2$ Tokens and a welcome to the club freeroll invitation with a prizepool of 3000$ and a entrance of ca. 500.

Hi Alexforth,

Thats a really good start. 

Yes it was Chris Ferguson.  Sadly I couldn't remember his name  :(

Best of luck in the freerolls.

Bankroll: about 25 Euros

Tonight I played a 20+2$ S'nG with one of my Tokens. And got awfully bad-beaten by a loose-aggressiv-playing guy.

I flopped 3 sevens and got him all with A high and backdoor flush- and straight-draws. He got runner runner full house Aces over sevens.

Sick one!

bankroll: 20,60 Euro

I didn't play very well today after that bad beat. I think I played a bit too loose preflop and lost a cupple of flips and run into better two pairs than mine. I stopped playing as I noticed that I was losing patience and motivation to play my A-Game. I am thinking about switching back to NL10, as players at NL2 are quiet good and kinda really tight. But I will have to give it a try tomorrow, we will see what happen.

Bankroll: 27,34 Euro

I am now playing at mansion poker to keep my VIP level.
I switched to PLO2 and PLO4 and it went quiet well as you see. The oppenents called me down to the river with draws although I was betting the pot and in one of my last hands I won a huge pot against a guy who called a pot size bet on the river with a straight on a paired board(see the pic). I had the full house.

I am looking forward to play the welcome to the club freeroll and maybe another 20+2$ or 30+3$ S'nG with one my of my tokens tonight.

Nice win - he clearly was fishing for the straight.  Sheme he didnt hit it on the river.

Keep up the good work.

Damn that sucked.  Would he have called if you had raised pre-flop?  Was he a calling station?

Unlucky though nonetheless. Well done with the bankroll though.
