This disease and the
chemotherapy did not prevent Kevin mount his poker bankroll to more than 2 million until today. He began by making a deposit of $ 500 playing with cash games heads up $ 0.25 / $0.50. Almost every month, Kevin Rose limit up on tables "nose bleed" where he lost a few feathers. Subsequently, the young man made a promise always have a very strict bankroll management and never play higher than on tables $ 25 / $50.
