    I got a free $25 bankroll start up from a site. Started playing 3$ SNG's and didnt realise it was a $2.40 witha $0.60 fee. thats 25% !! so i switched over to 10c/25c NL, been playing very well, no real bad beats, its been playbook the whole way. Tonight i got up to $110 in my bankroll, so i stepped up to .25/.50c NL, took one pricey beat but recooped my loss. heres a small graph .. any input? its also my 1st time using this software.

    Be careful stepping up to .25/.50 that early. One buy-in is 16% of your overall bankroll, and the variance is bigger at those stakes. I'd stick to .10/.25 until you have a few hundred dollars behind and the .25/.50 buy-in is a much smaller percentage of your stack. I made leaps similar to this when I first started and rocketed my way to .50/1 only to get some serious beats and go bust after a few weeks. I didn't have enough bankroll to deal with the swing at those stakes.

    Good showing! 741 hands in 5 days, variance is around the corner, my friend. Get to lower limits asap before a hand or two wipe you clean...

    Rock the 3.30's - 6.60 SnG's awhile. Get up to the 10 bone SnG's... then start working the multi table tourneys. Good luck
