I miss playing poker.
I miss having the extra money available when I want it and I miss meeting up with people as they come into town to visit and play.
So, since all of my real money has places for it to be I decided to give this whole Online Poker thing a shot again. One of the reasons I quit years ago was because it got really really boring, especially after Black Monday or whatever it was called.
So, I downloaded WSOP and loaded it up with pocket change and am going to work on building my bankroll up from nothing, well close to nothing.
My hope is that by the time we have enough saved up to buy a house that I'll have some sort of starter fund so that I can start playing regularly at the casino's again.
I have not made any rules for myself yet. I realize that I have to survive through variance from my starting point just to build up enough that I won't have to worry about going broke or risk looking like the idiot at my tables who keeps buying in for 40 cents every few minutes and going broke again.
So, what did I do?
I put $10 into my account and got a sweet $1 bonus - so my starting point is $11.
I am only going to be playing the 1 cent 2 cent No Limit games for now and as I am buying in for the max of $2 currently I am starting with a whopping 5 and a half buy-ins.
First goal, get myself to 10 buy-ins and minor breathing room.
Let the....uh.... fun? .... begin.
