After starting with $25, I followed my rules religously. I only played occasionally (about once a week), but I played within my bankroll limits.
I ran my account up to about $125, which is a very healthy increase based on the stakes I was playing.
Then I came home drunk one night...
I decided to take a crack at a bigger game and see if I could make some quick money. I played $2-$4 limit table. Accordingly to my previously set rules, playing this game required a buy-in of $100 and a bankroll of $2,000. Well I had a $125 bankroll, and I bought in for all of it.
I lost just over $100, and now only have about $20 left.
