Having had a long session of 10 months in poker I decided to take a break, lots of things were pointing towards this, I had sometime on my hands before I was off to university, I have always wanted to go to Australia, I felt a break from poker would probably be a gd thing etc, in this tie by the way pokerwit has been fantastic for keeping me going through poker strategy so as not to "lose " my current understanding of the game.
While I have been away I have been assessing my time in poker, I have managed to make approximately just under 26k in profits, around 18k of this from mtts, which I find most interesting and most exciting of the different games in poker, so I am definately planning to be grinding these on my return.
The questions I am asking myself and would love to hear any opinions on is how much I should start my bankroll on again when returning, as I have never deposited over 200 dollars it will feel like a big risk but my current opinion is something around 2-3k to allow me to play 10/20 dollar and 3 and 5 dollar rebuys.
I also play on a very standard 16" laptop, playing 9 tables at once I would suggest is the absolute limit, and I feel I would like to be able to at least expand this number slightly if I feel I need more volume. Would buying a 42" tv and wireless mouse and keyboard be advised for this? It would more then likely make me more profitable, or should I look at different options, like buying a computer rather then a laptop, or is it an unecessary expenditure at this time?
I am also looking to top players for staking/coaching propositions in 180 man turbos, I feel if i was able to really master this game it would be worth the money lost to the staker and be a good investment, this should allow me to build up to a 10k plus bankroll hopefully sooner then later.
