      Here you go buddy:

      For Beginners: Automatic Bankroll Protection
      In collaboration with PokerStrategy.com, William Hill offers an automatic bankroll protection for beginners. When starting out with your $50 starting capital, you will only be able to play in the following limits:

      * Fixed Limit Hold'em: Up to $0.10/$0.20
      * No Limit Hold'em: Up to $0.05/$0.10
      * Sit and Goes Texas Hold'em: Up to $1 buy-in (not including entry-fee)

      Sit and Go heads-up tournaments are not supported, since they are not suitable for beginners and we therefore don't offer a beginners' strategy for this game type.

      These measures are consistent with our recommended bankroll management method and will help you get through the introductory phase with a profit.

      The automatic bankroll protection will either be lifted after you've generated 50$ in rake or tournament fees or after 30 days of actively playing for real money at William Hill.

      It will also be lifted when you deposit at least $100 on top of your free $50 starting capital.

      I guess so, I put mine in Full tilt so I'm not completely sure. It seems you have to generate $50 dollars of rake, deposit some of your own money or play at william hill for 30 days actively to unlock it.

      well thats kinda stupid and not a bankroll management at all
      a true bankroll managment would be if they would have limited your bankroll to 50 buy ins of each tournament buy in fee you want to play so as you grow your bankroll you can play higher limits but i guess they just called it br managemnt on here its actually a restricting order against you to make you make a deposit to unlock it very lame

      Sucks to be honest, but I'm sure it's there to protect themselves from fraud as well as to help true beginners to the game.

      Ah well, have fun grinding that $50 dollars of rake ;P

      Didn't think so to be honest.

      Oh well, see if you can last long than I did, I managed a week at full tilt before I rage quite and moved over to a softer platform where people pay you off ;P

      Hey there,

      from our website:
      The automatic bankroll protection will either be lifted after you've generated 50$ in rake or tournament fees or after 30 days of actively playing for real money at William Hill.

      It will also be lifted when you deposit at least $100 on top of your free $50 starting capital.
      So it's either $50 rake or tourney fees or $100 deposit or 30 days of playing cash games - that's doable, wouldn't you say? :)

      Hadi
