      Hi guys,


      I've been playing poker for a couple of years now, and have had some small success.
      From the humble beginings of being invited to a game on a friday night, only to help fund someone else's weekend ?( , to cashing, and winning a few pub tournaments, 1st placing in 3 online tournaments, playing cash in casino's which helped net me over a few euros a long the way....

      But through this time i also played online, without any sort of bankroll management. You can see where thats going, the highs where high, and the lows where... well pretty low!... Upswings and downswings like crazy ;( :] ;( :] ;( :]

      I've bounced around from site to site trying to find one that suits me so i've had a lot of accounts opened without even depositing, just to check them out, and I've finally narrowed it down to pkerstars or full tilt..

      I eventually got sick of this and about a month ago i decided to find a way to get a certain form of stability into my game, and started using the internet as a research tool... i know i couldn't beleive it myself that i had never thought of it before.. Then i discover pokerstrategy.com and fell in love with learning again!! not only that but the member system gives great iniative to learn and progress, set goals and accomplish them.
      the amount i've learned in the last month is leaps and bounds beyond anything i had contimplated i would find!...


      my problem is that i cant earn strategy points from the sites i already have, therefore cannot continue to learn and progress through the ranks, hopedully to black in a couple of years, as i really don't want to deviate from either of these sites as its taken me long enough to find the right one for me!!!!!

      I NEED HELP!!!!!!

      Sorry for such a long first post but i needed to get tit off my chest!

      Cheers for reading and Regards!

      Yea i knw its a pain though because i only found poker strategy so late. I'm considering having an account with one of the other sites.. but not sure which one really suits me.

      I enjoy playing stars because people who are htere want to play poker (the majority of the time) unlike these betting room sites i find are full of maniacs at every low limit.

      But i will perservere!..

      if anyone knows any good sites they moved to when they might of been in a similair situation to me, please let me know...

      It is very good for you, if people start to gamble with their money on the poker tables. So you can increase your winrate. Sure, there will be bad beats but you will be able to make a lot of money out of it.

      Have you tried already 888poker or PartyPoker?

      Good luck on the tables,
      Hannes

      You can always have your sister-wife or mama to open an account and *maybe* you can help them out... You didn't hear it from me though hahahah

      Well that's not allowed and is against the terms & conditions of every poker room. So 2brokenjaws please don't do that as you will have problems when you want to withdraw or even earlier.
