How I built my poker bankroll $100 to $4700

Last week, i have deposit $100 into PKR Poker. so i played few hours in $0.50-$1 blind and get up with $400. Then next day, i felt like i should try $1-$2 blind, so i sat with $200 and played about 3 hours and get up with $865. so i was happy the way it hold my AA, KK and AK. it usually does not. i always lose with big hand. However, as my bankroll reach $1065 then i have decided to give a shot at $2-$4 blind. so i sat with $400.

I got some lucky river and i was surprised that i did not lose any hand with AA or KK. so i get up with $1400. then next day i feel lucky and tried $5-$10. sat with $800. and i was playing good and fortune favor the brave, and get up with $2200.

my Bankroll reach $100 to $4700 within 3 days. i felt it is time to withdraw 50% of my bankroll before i lose. so i have withdraw $2700.

The next day i sat at $2-$4 with $800. then i was playing good. but in a hand i had KK. i raised $16, guy called Flop 6, 2, 10 so i bet $32. he raised on me $75. i was like WTF, so i push all in $800. and guess what he had? 62 yes he held his 2 pair and won $1600 pot. i was like hmm may be my luck running out and next day i lost rest of my bankroll with AA, KK, AK, AQ, as i always play big hand. i lost them all.

so i want to say, even though you are good at poker, you have to be lucky. if your luck run out you will keep losing. so when you play high blind poker be careful, as people call with junk and catch and bust you. that's my last week story.
