The Bankroll Building Project (Guide to Micro-Limit SNGs)

Staying Motivated
posted by fox on January 20, 2008

I’ve helped a number of students with the issue of staying motivated even at stakes where the money doesn’t feel like it’s worth it, and I know it can be tough. I face that myself sometimes with this project because I have so little time to play poker these days and it’s tough to play micro-limits when I do finally get a chance to play. Playing at a little higher level over the past couple days for a few hours hasn’t made that any easier, though it has been nice to make a few bucks.

I played some $10-$20 No-limit on Bodog last night, along with some $30-$60 fixed-limit, and was up over $1,000 on both tables when I left. When I combine that with the higher level SNG’s I played a few days ago, and I’ve made around $4,500 in a few hours of play. Makes it tough to go back to $20 SNG’s, but it’s also nice to know that I won’t lose it all back in a hand or two and be grumpy for the rest of the day, so maybe the lower stakes will be nice.

I really do enjoy the project, and within a week or two everyone will understand why I’ve been too busy to spend much time on it for the last month or so. Really fun news coming very soon!
