As people have told me, i have moved down limits due to my current bankroll. I was just planning on playing some freerolls on ladbrokes, but i noticed i had 10 dollars left in my account. so i sat at a .05/.10 table for a hour or so and got it upto 30. I then went up to .10/.20 and played tight, just hoping to pick my spots and get upto 50 or so and quit for the day. I got QQ on the button, playing 6 handed. i raised to .90 and the BB called. the BB was a friend of mine that iv known for many years, he isnt a great player, he only plays for a laugh etc. The flop came KT4 rainbow. he insta shoved for 20 dollars into a 2 dollar pot. He does this alot against me just to say he has bluffed me. So i called. he showed AJclubs. perfect he only had 5 outs. but the Queen on the river give him broadway. Even though this wasnt for much at all it annoyed me so much. I only had 5.50 left so i played a 5dollar sitngo. i got it all in pre flop with JJ and got called by A4off LOL. he hit four to a flush and busted me though. It was only 10 dollars i lost in total really, and since i didnt know i had this money to start with, its not important. But, im kind of treating that as research into what it will be like when i do try play low limits and grind out a decent bankroll. If people are going to make plays like that at me, in the long run i will profit, as i was 75%+ ahead each time. So my question is this, playing .10/.20, allowing for hands like the above, how will could it take to accumulate a decent enough bankroll to be playing 3 or 4 levels above this? Apologies about the lengthy post, Thanks, Michael.
Few Players recall big pots they have won - strange as it seems - but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career.

Tough to say, as you have days where things just go your way or just the opposite. I might suggest that you buy in for less than the max and as well you might want to lower the number of buy ins you need in order to move up. But with each level you move up you must also move up your requirements.
ciao for now

I have read on, in many articles, that you can make 1 big blind an hour if you are a good player.
