    The Best Damn Band In The Land (aka tbdbitl)

    History of the organization my nick pays tribute to:
    The Ohio State University Marching Band is one of the few all-brass and percussion bands in the country, perhaps the largest of its type in the world. However, Ohio State's band had humble beginnings. The first instrumental musical organization on campus was a 12-piece fife and drum corps organized in 1878. Read More Here

    I thought it was only fitting to give the real tbdbitl props before I begin with my own History.

    My Poker Playing Begins
    It all started for me in the fall of 2004. I started playing play chips on Party Poker. A co-worker said to me one day, hey if you want to really play you should play at Ultimate Bet. So, I started an account there and played the play chips constantly. When I saw my Ultimate points growing every month, I thought, hey there should be a way to get cash from these guys without depositing. I started playing every freeroll they had. I was finishing in the money (Bonus Dollars) with ease. I had qualified for numerous TEC Sunday tourneys, but it seemed every time I couldn't even get a hand that added up to more than 10 in these.

    In March of 2005, I was looking at my account screen and noticed that there was $1.00 of real money in my account. I thought, where'd the hell did that come from. Wouldn't you know, my co-worker had transferred me a buck. This guy actually was thinking, if he could get me hooked on the real tables and I lost the buck, I'd deposit and give him as a referring member and receive Bonus dollars from my deposit.

    The penny table journey begins! Not having even enough to enter a $1.00 + .10 SnG, I started sitting at the .01/.02 NL tables with the least amount of money I could. It didn't take too long and I was up to $10. I then played SnGs. But with me, I found that with the time invested in these tourneys, I was actually making more money in the ring games. Another, thing I noticed was all of my Bonus Dollars were gone—converted.

    My next thought was that I need more Bonus Dollars. So, I concentrated on the $500 Bonus$ freerolls. I was now, instead of just making the $$$, finishing in the top 50. Eventually, I finally made it to a final table with everyone else having atleast 10x my chip stack. But, everyone one at the table was so intent on getting the big stack's chips, they paid no attention to me. I finished 2nd. I strung together a few more final tables and finally I won one.

    I proceeded to build my bankroll. In the fall of 2005, I decided it was time to move up. So, I was off to the .05/.10 tables.

    To be continued . . .

    Poker Beginnings Continue .....

    Poker Beginnings Continue .....

    I now was setting goals for myself.

    1. Have enough success to never have to deposit
    2. Reach 1K
    3. Piss off my co-worker

    Well, my next level went well. I was making money and my bonus dollars were converting faster than ever. I shared these goals with my play chip friends. What I found out was that the order of my goals wasn't ordered correctly. Aided by my co-workers poor money management and in turn financial woes, I ended up accomplishing #3 first. One day he comes over to my office with five crumpled dollar bills asking me to transfer him five bucks. I told him, "I never deposited any money. The transfer of real money isn't an option on my cashier screen". He says, "Oh yeah". Then he proceeds to storm out of my office.

    Another co-worker asked me when I was going to move up the tables. My response was that I didn't feel comfortable with my bankroll. Eventually, I moved up to the .10/.25 tables, and goal #2 was achieved. When I hit $1,200 I moved up again. I had good success and peaked at $1600 at the end of 2006. But, as I found out, the gains at these tables are HUGE, but so were the losses. My bankroll took a hit. So, I decided to take a break and move down on the tables and straighten my game out. My bankroll is getting better and what I am finding out is goal #1 has been reached also.

    I don't enter many $$ tournaments. But, when I do I use my Ultimate Points to enter them. I have cashed in a number of these. So, my first thought of being able to make money from this site without ever depositing was actually possible.

    My play is much better. I still have my "Donkey Days", but I think we all have our donk moments. Also, I'm just having fun playing the game and constantly learning to add new wrinkles.
