      I think it keeps you motivated to play poker if you're able to make some cashouts and buy stuff without destroying your bankroll. So, what have you bought with your winnings? Even smallest things count ;)

      Personally I just bought a new computer with the money I've earned from poker since my old computer's graphics card died. ( bought asus p5k-c , 2gig ram , 500gb hd , intel q6600 & geforce 8800gts 512mb for those who understand for computers )

      Also set a goal of buying a motorcycle in summer, not sure yet if I can reach it without destroying too much of my bankroll but I'm hopeful.

      Well I bought it virtually. (I bought it but didn't cash out because of the bad $ at the moment.)

      - 20" monitor
      - new pc
      - pokerbooks
      - random stuff
      - alcohol ;)


      To go:

      - 40" LCD TV
      - Playstation 3 (for blueray)
      - Audi TT or S3 or if I win a lot (won't happen) a R8. (Utopic goal but I think dreaming is allowed?)

      O_o you win that much? nice ^^

      With my live winnings, hmmm... mp3 player, nintendo wii, computer, various skiing equipment, and a logitech mx revolution (so nice for multitabling :P )

      Nothing yet with my online bankroll, but I might cash out a little in a few weeks, since I'll transfer a part of it to FTP anyway... but planning on getting a new pair of telemark skis, and I desperately need a new monitor (or 2) to replace one of my blurry CRT's

      Nothing yet. I might siphon a little out of this account if I ran into some money shortages though due to an expensive college lifestyle and being fired from my weekend job.

      I probably would buy a moderately good pc and 21" screen this summer if that would cost me less than 20 % of my bankroll at that time.

      Nah as mentioned it's my dream. I don't play at all at the moment because I need to learn for my tests. :)
