      The title said it all. I found a site that gave me $10 usd no deposit bankroll. At first, I though to myself that $10 won't do much for me, but at least it's $$ to play poker. I gave it a shot and through the week, I built it up faster than I can blink my eyes. I made the $10 to $60 the first day the poker site gave me to play. On the next day, I won first on an MTT taking $75 or so. I then slowly play on high limits and built it really fast. Later on the track, I withdraw $500 usd to put on other poker site like pokerstar and party poker.

      On pokerstar, I enter a $33 MTT and came 14th out of 600th --> taking a $160s. On party poker, I play bingo and won $150 usd or so.

      Well, every story good story have a bad ending...haha....it's when I started to play on low limit on party and gg $50 usd in total...that really set me on TILT badly and you know what TILT does to players...yes...I then lost all the money I made within the week.

      Overall, this isn't the first time I made alot of $$$ in a short time....I guess, I have the skills but not the emotional control I need.... :D else I would be sitting on a $10K+ by now....

      Story is ture....and hopefull I play again later on when I have time...university stuff is getting to my heads....
      O, if anyone interest to stake me e-mail on thienimon@gmail.com...hehe joke*

      Cheers guys

      Lol as it looks you do 0 bankroll management and played all the time with all your money. So ofcourse you can not get lucky all the time but at least you withdraw 500$ and still have them right?

      I believe we should declare March 17 an international poker holiday in honor of thienimon who fought valiantly and fell on the field of battle.

      Thats one hell of loss, But, if I have read it right your still up 490. Take the 500 you withdrew minus the 10 they gave you.

      Generally it's irritating to see guys like: "Made 1cent into $1KK in 20ms, cause I'm luckbox."

      I'm playing about 10th month and I'm still at $200s :D .

      Thankfully this story has a happy ending.

      depends whether you want to be longrun successful player or ultra short-run successful really.

      look at undercover... he grinded 90k hands before a profit and now he's doing ok for himself i think

      give thienimon another 900k hands and i really don't see him anywhere other than busto...

      lol some nice replies there...sadly I dont have the $500, it was deposited on Party Poker and PokerStar.... and I gg them xD

      However, I was so bored a few days ago, I found on my browser bookmark of a bingo site which I haven't been for a very long time....

      =___= I was shocked to find out I got $120 euro ($170s usd) in the account. I think I won the jackpot $120 euro on the site without knowing....

      >=] Anyway, wait till I withdraw the $ and see if I can do something with it.... xD

      Past History
      --------------
      Turn $0 -> $230 (I used good bankroll management here... xD )
      Turn $80 -> $1090
      Turn $15 -> $3050 (Making $300 usd a day...until tilt hit)
      Turn $10 -> $1750

      Poker Goal
      -------------
      Enter the PokerStar 1 million MTT every week xD
      Make $10K bankroll (I dreamt I had $20K br and an extra $50K was added to it cause of a big MTT win...lol)

      All I need is good bankroll management skill + emotion control and I be all good. Thx for the reply guys, just like to share my experience ....

      Chenny8888 quote "i really don't see him anywhere other than busto..." ...hehe it's true :P unless I change ...

      wow i wonder if this kind of thing will ever happen to me... (i mean making big $$ in very little time, not the losing it all part). that would be cool. if maybe lady luck decides to help me out... but even then... probably not bec im conservative w/ my bankroll and would probably never be on limits where it could possibly explode into thousands...

      but ive got to give props to this guy, he seems cheerful enough despite having lost everything. :D and willing to try again. maybe next time withdraw some $$ before you seemingly inevitably lose it all. :D
