      I think its not allowed by poker sites to have multiple accounts

      Hi clawindsouza,

      I have several different platforms scattered around still, some tracked to PokerStrategy, some not (held prior to joining).

      Whilst I tend to visit 3x regularly, it's still sometimes useful keeping the others open as they all set up promotions & freerolls into live events etc occasionally.

      Obviously if you're not going to play on a certain platform for a while, then it pays to transfer any large amounts of money into your more active platform, but if it's only a couple of $, then no harm leaving them (except Partypoker who will charge a small fee on inactive accounts).

      Best regards,

      Moving account won't stop a downswing.
      Just have to ride it out and keep playing A-game.

      I have plenty of accounts but use 2 at the moment.. One is my main one where I'm grinding for max bonus, the other one is used only if there's lack of traffic on the main one, if i meet all conditions for max bonus I can get current month (or if i'm not able to reach the higher one) or if i dont feel like grinding and want to play 1-2 tables while watching top gear :f_cool:

      oh, and i have PokerStars active also, but use it only for a MTT from time to time and to play some FPP satelits with all points I earned a year ago...
