      hey guys...
      i began about a month ago w/ my $50 playing $10NL cash, $5sngs and ran it waaaay up to 150 within a week. i did run pretty hot during this time but after my BR topped $150, i started to run horribly sour. just the sickest possible situations, making good calls and getting drawn out, making great bluffs and getting called down by fish; just so depressing. is there any way you guys coud consider giving me another shot?

      Hello mosaicAce1,

      Im sorry to say that we only give out bankrolls once, although you can re-charge your bankroll with our TAF program.

      From your post it seems that you played way above your bankroll though (which is most likely the reason you went broke) - So I suggest re-reading the literature on bankrollmanagment. You should have around 50+ Buyins of a level to play SNGs there meaning for 5$ buyins you need a BR of atleast $250. For NL10 BSS you also need around 20 buy-ins which means a $200 BR.

      As we state in the beginner articles. Bankrollmanagement is one of the most important aspects of poker. I hope you learned your lesson about variance - and will keep it in mind for your future.

      Best regards,
