      I like your suicide approach on playing S&G way to early. Dont play Brussels anymore though. Stick to brm from now on. Congratiolations on your succes and keep playing 5+.5 if youre good. I hope you grind through this limit. :D

      Hmm nice going but i would advise you to stick to the bankroll management. There is no point in gambing with your money, the strategy articles are there to stop you from doing this. if u made $110 from sit and goes and now have $295 you must have started playing $5.5 sit and goes at a bankroll of $185. In my opinion this is too low for a bankroll i would suggest atleast a bankroll of 50 buy ins meaning you would have needed $275. But Hey you've had an upswing at the right time and now u have a sufficient bankroll to play these games so keep playing them if you are as good as the stats suggest.

      Congratulations. Completely the opposite for me, for the last 3-4 days ive been playing well (i know im a winning player) and losing everything. Everytime i have KQ vs KJ, i lose. Everytime im all in with KK/QQ/AA preflop, i lose to underpairs like 88 or TT. I am nearly going broke because this downswing is so sosososo sick. Sorry, wanted to vent but not make my own thread. Down from $215 to $38.

      ... My bankroll has just broken $400 and I am just moving to $5 SnG's having built the lot pretty much playing $2 SnG's.... I want to have atleast 80 BI's when I play SnG as I'm well aware of my inability to play well when I don't get the cards at the mo...

      Well done though doood!
