Two weeks ago I talked about my (relatively) new online poker experiment. For years I never much liked playing online, and I pretty much stuck to playing live. It may seem peculiar that I’ve played poker for six years and only now am I really getting into online poker, but for some reason I just never enjoyed playing online before.
As of about six weeks ago, I’ve gotten excited about playing online, and I’ve been consistently putting in hands. I started with about $500 of miscellaneous money I had sitting on Full Tilt and 4-tabled the $50NL games. My goals are:
- Put in at least 20k hands per month
- Grow my bankroll organically by moving up through the stakes rather than just plopping a bunch of money online
- Look out for interesting hands or new ideas to share with you here on NPA and at Stoxpoker
So far it’s going great. Most importantly, I’m almost up to 40k hands played and it’s been only about a month and a half so far, so I’m ahead of my hands goal. I’ve easily played more online hands in the past six weeks than I did in the preceding six years. That’s really exciting for me. Here are my results total thus far:
In six weeks I’ve worked the bankroll up from a somewhat precarious one for $50NL into a more solid one at $200NL. I’m currently 6- and 7-tabling the $200NL at Full Tilt. I’m happy about the overall picture.
