I'm a big fan of a live poker game. And here recently, a buddy of mine on SCF named Ryan (Rhyno24) and I have partaked in a couple of hold'em games with a box of cards on the line.
This got me thinking about my days of playing online poker. Online is a different beast than a live game, mainly because it's a lot easier for players to play looser online as your can't get a read on someone watching a computer screen (unless you've played the same player numerous times).
So I remember poker pro Chris Ferguson turning $0 into $10000 and I think I will try to do the same. So this means playing freerolls to attempt to get my bankroll started.
A freeroll is a tournament with no entry fee that has prizes for the top finishers. I will be doing this on Full Tilt Poker. I played a warmup freeroll tourney to see if I still had some online skills and finished 936th out of 2700.
So now begins my quest on 2/24. Keep checking in as I will update this blog with my result and some highlights/lowlights of my tourney. I figure it will take me a while to get money out of a freeroll, so be patient.
