Current Bankroll: $2 - 133K Play Chips

Just going over the rules again to determine exactly where the changes in buy-ins take place in regards to bankroll.

The goal is to hit 2M play chips so I can start buying into the 500K $40 Play Chip daily freeroll.

Rule #2 states: "Only buy-in to cash games for 1/5th or less of my total bankroll (buy-in is 100 times BB), and tournaments for %5 or less." This means I am stuck in the 2k tournaments until I hit 200k play chips and can start buying into the 10k tourneys. I can't start the 1k/2k cash games until I hit 1M play chips, so it looks like it's going to be all tournaments for a while since the next highest cash games are at the 100/200 level which just isn't worth it.

Back in Action

Current Bankroll: $2 - 155K Play Chips

I'm back in action at the play chip tables after nearly a year off for personal reasons. Just basically trying to get back in the swing of things in the 2K play chip tourneys. I actually picked up $2 in one of the 2700 player freerolls some time during the summer, but have driven my play chip bankroll dangerously low with some occasional unfocused play so it's probably going to be a little while until I build my play chip bankroll back up high enough to start cashing in on the 500K Play Chip Freeroll.

I'm back to the basics though and adhering strictly to the rules, so it should be a fun and edifying journey giving me plenty of time to practice moving up in stakes.
