    using limit to build a roll

    I've found it easier to use limit online especially when starting from $0 to eliminate the variance and risk of losing your entire stack when playing with only a few dollars. Yes your wins are capped but I believe it more then makes up for the inherent risk of variance, especially on the online scene. Play limit build up enough to play in $1.10 sng's and build your stack from there. Just my .02 that I've found works best and is easiest for me. Keep taking shots at $1.10 sng's until your can get your BR up to around $10-15 then move up limits.

    I believe $5 is more than enough to be playing lowest limit (.05/.1) and once your up to around 15 you should be able to move up as your not risking your entire stack at any one time just having it on the table and you can only lose up to the max allowed. But yeah I guess play with what your comfortable with.

    as I said do what works for you, but in terms of taking shots and being able to more quickly enter into $1 sngs and eventually $2-$3 etc. I believe this strategy works well, i'm not sitting there playing specifically limit, it is used for hit n runs and being able to use money for sng's which is where the real moneys made...to each his own...thanks for the constructive comment.

    that must of been extremely slow...when I build a roll I like to take shots at higher tournaments within reason...that's the best way to build a big roll. With $50 you could afford to take a shot or two at $2 sngs easily and if you win that's a big chunk added to your roll and if you lose it's really not that much...you took your shot and it didn't work oh well...I built a successful $400 roll on carbon doing this and taking shots that I've since cashed out(I hate carbon) and am now working on bovada which is surprisingly a little less on the bad beat/river side and I like it a lot better. Nothing in gambling/poker is 100% you gotta take risks.

    edit: In no way did I say play $2 sng's regularly...if that was your point...that would be nonsense.

    My strategy more or less:

    Win a $1 or so in free roll. Play limit grind it to $2-$5. Enter a $1 SnG hopefully place (Usually do as these aren't that hard just play good cards, steal blinds when on button etc. rather standard) Rinse and repeat if lose and have no money to keep doing this with. Resort back to limit. Do this while playing freerolls etc. I've tried the NL approach and it's very hit/miss and you either make it quick or your out and have nothing

    i think limit is a fine strategy in the lower stakes, but eventually u want to move up to no limit. maybe with 15 dollar bankroll move to .05/.10 NL
