Hey everyone! I’m SWeNetty, the guest-blogger here at Expekt.com. I’m from northern Sweden now living in England and I have been playing poker ever since. Well time of dawn. At least it feels like that from time to time.
I started up by playing Chicago, you know another name for 5-card draw but without the betting between rounds, with my brother and something we called knuckle-poker in school. That’s pretty much 5-card stud but with a twist. The winner gets to punish the looser depending on what card the looser is drawing. Well needless to say you had to progress strategically, become a better player OR go home with bruises on you knuckles or arms.
My favourite games are 5-card draw and lowball. It’s just that it’s really hard to find a decent game of 5-card draw or lowball. 7-card stud is another game. I’m more than happy to sit down to play, find these games challenging since you’re completely lost if you don’t pay attention to what’s going on at the table.
I’ve been blogging about my poker-experience and other worldly stuff for a couple of years now at http://netsson.suitedjokers.com so you can catch up on me there too.
About 1.5-2 months ago I got challenged to see if I could make myself a bankroll at Expekt.com poker from absolute zero, I gladly accepted the challenge and planned to write about it in a blog, to document it. On top of that I have a new challenge going on which include the mini ECOOP events to be documented as well.
Since Expekt.com is having this really good deal for new customers, 90 days of freerolls to help you build your bankroll 5 times per day, in total 450 freerolls. It makes it a bit easier to get started as a poker player. The freerolls are capped at 500 registered and pays top 33 a ticket into a $0.60 sitngo where you can win $2.50. So if you calculate your odds there they’re pretty damn good, don’t you think!
The perfect scenario if you’re that good and have that much luck (which wouldn’t be much of a challenge and just theoretical but for the sake of calculation) you can make in 90 days time $1125 for your bankroll. More plausible would be something in between if you take this seriously. So far I’ve made 22 tickets. I’ve used 2 tickets winning me the first in both for a total of $5. Now I’m just using those $5 to just get my bearings around the sitngo-tables and up my game there.
To get familiar with the structure, players and more. I decided for this bankroll-challenge to use the 5% rule strictly, to have a bankroll-management that’s not going to ruin it for me when I run cold, I’m aware of that’s going to happen sooner or later realistically. well that’s pretty much all for now but the story will continue for everyone that are interested…
Play well and most of all have fun playing well. PS. You can follow me on twitter @SWNetty.
