      Hey all

      Sorry if this is a stupid question but just thought i would ask.

      Just recieved my starting $50 and it says on my account

      $1 available
      $49 restricted

      Does this mean i can play with the whole $50 but i cannot withdraw the $49

      Love this site and can't wait to start doing the beginners course as it looks full of really good info.

      Many thanks

      Jamie

      I think there is a restriction on which levels you can play until you have played X amount of hands but I'm not sure, it's been a while for me.

      ...and yes, please do attend the beginners course, not just for the info, but the coaches are so patient and will answer any questions and allay any feers you may have about the game.

      GL and have fun. =)

      Hi Jamie,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy.com and to the English Community!

      I'm guessing you received your free $50 at Party Poker then?

      Yes $49 is restricted until you have generated the $50 rake at their tables. You have 150 days in which to generate this rake and then voila, the $50 are yours :)

      Now that you have got this free bankroll it is very important to read bankroll management if you haven't done so. I have linked it for you here

      Glad to hear you are enjoying your PokerStrategy experience and if you need any help or assistance in any way, please don't be afraid to ask :)


      Kind regards and enjoy your Poker at Party,

      Gary

      what do you mean by spending? we are not really giving out $50 shopping money :D you will be given $50 to start playing poker for free! :D this is a poker school you know, and we want our members to improve their poker playing skillz :f_biggrin: got it?

      you will be given money in your poker account, and you will be able to play with it then. after you complete withdrawal requirements though, you may withdraw the 50 + your winnings and spend as you wish :)

      hope that answers your question!

      smiles,
      wendy
