Default Starting with a dime.

Starting with only a dime, I'm going through a bankroll build on Full Tilt. I managed to place in one of those luckbox $0.10 rebuy tournaments (with no rebuys), and then built up with $1.25 SNG's. It took a ton of luck when I started out, but hopefully I can build it into something.

If anyone wants is interested, I'm keeping a blog of how things are going :

myluckydime.blogspot.com

Any advice or comments are welcome!

How does one become a good player by following the BR management rules? It seems like it might be harder than that, especially when your BR is a dime.

My first thought when you said 'dime' was $1000 since all of the professionals seem to refer to 1k as a dime.

GL

Turn it into a million and write a book.

Personally i'd rather deposit $500 and start from there to save myself months of mind numbing boredom at the microstakes.

Thanks for pointing it out, its insane the number of people who will tell obv beginner to stick to good BR, like this is what they need.

What he needs is understanding the concept of pot odds/ implied odds / hand range / position / table image and adaptation to opp plays.

This is what he needs, once he understand all of that, he will come to BR management, there is no point to have 1020912 buy in for a level if you cant beat it.

Well bubbleboy post was most likely a level, but I see it a lot so ...

And a dime is 10k.

Well, obviously a dime makes things interesting. But, while I may be no authority, I don't think learning to busto is an important part of anybody's education. Some people can't or won't deposit/redeposit, and I'd say bustoing in those circumstances is going to severely detract from their opportunities to learn.

Thanks for the comments, everybody.

Just to clarify, when I say "dime", I literally mean a dime. Technically speaking, I had $0.12 sitting in my account, but I bought into a $0.10 tournament. The idea for a bankroll build came after I cashed a small amount. I didn't think anything was going to come out of it - I played the original dime as a goof.

A lot of people talked about bankroll guidelines. I fully realize that my abilities (or lack thereof) are NOT related to how I manage my bankroll. It is true that no arbitrary amount of "big blinds to play" or number of buy-ins will ensure quality play. That said, I still think it's extremely important, and will only be playing above my bankroll in the beginning (when it's not much to speak of anyway). I'm working with the idea of "a good bankroll won't help a bad player, but a bad bankroll certainly hurts a good player".
