      Is there any?
      I got $50 from pokerstrategy like 2 weeks ago and never played them. Currently I focus more on getting used to the software and the community, playing some freerolls and playmoney tables + studying really hard (harder than I used to when I was in high school lol) reading the articles and watching VOD's. My plan was to do that until I feel confident enough to play nl2 :f_p:
      But today I heard some rumors that $50 can expire if I don't use them in time.

      it depends on which room you received the 50 on....for example william hill you must play within the first 14 days or its gone.

      i know that in everest you have 120 days to collect 1000 summit points to keep your 50.
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/quiz/platform/9/

      at first 1000 points seemed whole lot of but considering that it is piece of cake to reach 'base camp' within a month then collecting other 700 point while everest triples your points earned at the tables it SHOULD BE breeze.

      i have still 60 points to go to the 'base' so not sure yet 100%
      =)


      don't know about party.

      quiiiiiiick start playing some poker i think you have 14 days to start playing on PP too, you only have to play a couple of hands though to make sure your account isnt totaly inactive have you dont this in the past 2 weeks?


      If not open your PP client check your balance if it still says $50 play a couple of hands, after that you have 150 in order to make 100 party points which is easy game really even if you don't play too regularly after that the money is fully yours to do with as you please :)

      It says $50.35
      Somehow I managed to place 19th and got $0.33 in 1 of the $100 freerolls.

      I can fold 9 hands in 9max game nl2 and just pay only $0.03 for that. Is that correct?

      Yeh should do it, if it was me though id sit at a table and wait until you had played say 20 hands enough time to have posted a couple of big blinds, by this time you will probably have been involved in a hand or 2 and then you should definately be safe :)

      Ok, I paid $0.03 for the blinds
      Folded 8 hands in a row - made myself an image of a very tight player. Then raised from UTG with 74o.
      Everyone folded.
