So how will I grind?? As mentioned, I wonâ€™t go broke so strict-ish BRM for me.
- Iâ€™ll use Chris Fergusonsâ€™s BRM rules for cash. Only buy in with 5% of my stack.
- Iâ€™ll generally play 4 6Max tables at a time.
- Iâ€™ll play with a full stack and reload when my stack drops to 75% of the buy in.
- Iâ€™ll leave a table if I reach 3 buy ins at the table.
- Iâ€™ll end a session if I drop 3 buy ins across all tables.
- Iâ€™ll move up a level if my BR meets rule 1 AND my graph is showing positive. The reason for this is that Iâ€™ll be refunding my poker account every month or so to speed up building a BR.
- If I need to drop a level due to rule 1 then Iâ€™ll stop refunding until I can grind back up. I need to be sure Iâ€™m comfortable at a level before moving up.
Started out with a BR of about $120 so will be starting at $0.02/$0.05 at Pokerstars.
