Default Lowest limit bankrolled and never looked back?

What is the lowest limit you started at to build your BR and never made another deposit as you worked your way up the ranks?

0.5/1 when I deposited $100. I had played microlimit home games with friends and carefully read TOP, HPFAP (SSHE wasn't out at the time) and played live 4/8 at Foxwoods (= easier than 0.5/1 online) before making my deposit. Most importantly I had started reading 2+2 forums and thinking about poker, especially specific hand threads, in my spare time.

When I started out I had good starting hand selection and was a good value bettor. My hand reading was weak and I made a lot of desperation crying calls (often the 2 BB variety after turn raises) in big pots even though I was winning like never. Even so, I was able to beat the microlimit games fairly easily, with much help from these boards.

last april Party put $50 into my account after a year of inactivity. I ran at like 18BB/100 at 1/2 (super luck I know) and was playing 5/10 within a month. I cleared over 30K last year off that free $50 from party.

Put in $100.00......lost it at $1/2.

Put in $50.......lost it at $.50/1.

Put in another $50........lost it at $.25/50 NL.



Said "Screw it", and deposited $488.50 (stock purchase cash out), and haven't had to redeposit since. Played $1/2 until bonuses and small wins got me over $1,000, then started mixing in some $2/4 and a little $3/6.


I'm about due to take drunk and lose it all playing $10/20 or something idiotic like that.
