I assume the title will bring the readers as everyone is interested to here how online poker players go bust.

Well I am proud to say that it is through no fault of my own. With the arrival of my 4th baby I was left temporarily financially burdened and was forced to draw my entire BR.

It’s just so wired because I started with $1 and built that up to over 3K in less than 2 years now I have nothing. But the money certainly helped, and my family is far more important than poker.

I was given a 30bi steak from my best friend in the, wont say ‘poker community’ even though that’s how we met but luckily the friendship is based on more than poker and for me that went horrible. I kept playing with a fear in the back of my mind saying “if I stuff this up I’m screwing over a mate” and family and friendships are far superior than a game of fucking cards! So after losing like 10bi I called it quits and reimbursed them with apologies.

I’ve been contemplating on what my next move will be and decided I have to rebuild again. Will be depositing $500 shortly and having to go back to the $3.40s. Still using the same BRM system except I’m making it 120/100. 120 buyins to play a limit, if drop to 100, drop down a level. Why these numbers? Because I’m a BR NIT! I will also, if affordable, top up little amounts every now and then from my own pocket (sky rocket for my UK readers :)

So that’s it, it sucks having to drop down in limits so much, but I had no choice. All I can do is suck it up and try to rebuild as fast as I can. At least I know after 2 years of playing with a BRM system I can’t actually go broke, unless I break my own rules, and then it’s just my fault. I’m good enough to make it, just have to start from the bottom again.

But at least I have my family and friends in good health, that’s the main thing.

If Boku87 can do it, does that mean anyone can do it?

Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to me with the amount of hours and tables this guy is putting in, which is clearly the largest I've ever come across, overall he is always going to be profitable no matter what. He can have 100+BI downswings and still make money in a long run

I assume the following about his gameplay:
Never Bluffs?
Doesn't reference any form of stats or history?
Plays with bankroll guidelines?
Plays the purest form of ABC Poker? IE. Tight nit @ start, then push/fold mode once x amount of bb's left
^^^^^^^Once again, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Am I missing something or is his approach/strategy that straight forward?

If it is that straight forward, wouldn't that mean that anybody can do the same, if they were able to match that form of volume?

Your thoughts/feedback?
