      Hey guys,

      We're looking to feature some of you guys in a special article for the end of 2011.

      It will be on the biggest success stories in the English community for this year.

      I'm sure many of you have had a great year and have been shy to let the others know about it. Well, don't be! Spread the word, and the next time you sit down at a big final table, you just might find a rail full of supporters from our wonderful community!

      What we need is for you to post stuff like:

      - I won xxx tournament for $24,525
      - I made SuperNova Elite in 10 months!
      - I turned my $50 starting capital into $5k

      and anything else that you would love to share with the community.

      I hope to hear from you guys really soon since we need to have this up before the end of the year.

      If you know about a success of another community member, it would be great for you to share those too!

      Joined pokerstrategy in December, 2010 and received the $50 starting capital at Fulltilt. Made around $7.5k including rakeback before Fulltilt went busto. I did withdraw around $3k. Put $200 on pokerstars in July and have made around $4.5K since including all bonuses and rewards.
      So simply - :s_pleased: "I turned my $50 starting capital into $12k within a year" :s_pleased:

      Bit of a disappointing year for me my biggest win was $340 and that was all the way back in January. Had a few $100ish wins dotted about but far more disasters.

      2012 will be my year though!

      I thought they merged the multiple buy-ins/stacks at the final table.

      Can't compete pokerwise, you're all out of my league, even though I own my level.

      However,

      1st biggest score;
      being invited to be a moderator on here. A bigger deal than it may at first appear for me. :heart:

      2nd biggest score:
      Can't tell you that but some clues are; a few glasses of wine, Christmas Eve, music by Alison Moyet and my other half; 'nuff said. :s_evil:

      Good luck all,

      Mal.

      Absolutely nothing in poker terms :D It's been a bad year :D

      But in mindset terms i'd say my biggest score is being told / realising that whining about running bad doesn't help because it lets me vent, it just hinders because it creates a shitty atmosphere, so i fixed that and my mindset is better because of it :D

      Lost 700$ in a hand where I flopped quads and villain rivered a straight flush (gutshot). Now I have a cool poker story to tell.

      My 2011 "Biggest Score"

      Well, i'll cut it short and forget the first 11 months as i have learnt alot since then to the start of December.

      This month is by far my Biggest Score, I've cashed a 2nd place for $88 in a $3 Tourney, Two 1st's in a $2 Rebuy for $565 Total, and a 3rd in an $11 Tourney for $90, also getting a few min cash's in smaller tourneys but not making it to the big payouts.
      HEM2 reports $550 Profits this month from Tourneys alone :)

      I owe most of this success to PS as i've come a HUGE distance from being a losing player, not following BRM and playing events far out of my limits, for instance, the Sunday Million at Stars... I'll admit, i'll join the odd $11 Tourney here and there, but i'll stick to my BRM strictly most times ;)

      I also started playing Cash games at NL6 (After losing at NL25 with no BRM) With profits of $267 So far, Over 22k hands running a at 20BB/100, and I've just starting playing 6 tables, so hopefully its up, up, up!

      So, this month is by far my best, $800 profits, roughly.

      Hopefully I can keep it up ;)
