Introducing James “HullJimi” Greenwood, the second to attempt our PartyPoker Bankroll Challenge. Nick Cantwell went first and lasted two weeks – surely James can do better?
Building a Las Vegas fund: James Greenwood
William Wilberforce. Amy Johnson. Phillip Larkin. The Beautiful South. Dave “Devilfish” Ulliot.
Some of Hull’s finest children. And now…..me!
My name is James “HullJimi” Greenwood and I’m based in Hull, in the North East of England. I’m 29 (OK, I’m 30 at Christmas!), and have been playing poker for the last couple of years, mainly online but periodically live, too.
Nick has failed where Chris Ferguson succeeded, and now it’s my turn to try and transform $25 into life-changing money by applying strict bankroll management and moving up through the levels.
I am not allowed to buy into a cash game or SnG that is more than 5% of my total bank roll (although this gets ignored immediately due to the micro limits!).
I am not allowed to enter an MTT for more than 2% of my total bank roll.
I’ve never really applied myself in the game, always doing silly challenges but this time I mean business. I’ve a reason to get serious – I get married next year (hello, Emma!), and we aim to spend a week of our honeymoon in Vegas. I’ve never been before and I want to go armed with a serious bankroll to play some live cash and tourneys. So this time, it’s poker war and I’ve armed myself with some WMPs – “Weapons of Mass Profit” – PokerTracker, PokerAce and $25 of PartyGaming’s money!
In the same way Nick has, I’ll be blogging on here once a week to keep you informed of how I’m getting on. I’m sure I’ll face some of the same problems Nick did, but I hope to be a bit luckier than he was and hopefully last a bit longer. Feel free to leave some comments with your advice, encouragement, or mild abuse!
See you at the (micro) tables.
