Over on Full Tilt Poker, my man Chris Ferguson is in the middle of an interesting experiment. He is trying to turn an initial $0 stake into $10,000. He writes up his progress here, which includes some very good rules for bankroll management. Ferguson is my favorite of all pro players which makes sense because he’s a straight out, unapologetic nerd. He spent like 15 years in grad school, is a programmer and a geek, and he looks really good in a cowboy hat and black suit. As a fanboy of his, I’ve tried to adopt some of his style at the table. I do much better when I play like him than when I play like me.
