      Got it on FTP, padded it with a $50 matching deposit, cleared the FDB, and moved to bustotown for failing to keep BRM being a silly bugger!

      More deposits followed, with much enjoyment, however!

      Built it to 15K playing nl2/nl4...spent the moniez.

      The biggest learning experience for me was how much it sucks to have to take off winnings from a hard won bankroll, not for fun or treats, but for bills. :f_cry:

      Back to $60 now...start again...15K here I come! :D

      Lost it in a week or so on FTP. At the time I was given it there were no stakes below NL10 here and I didn't want to shortstack + sucked hard so it didn't take me long. Actually I was unable to go studying for a weekend until I had money in acc so I just sat down @ NL25 with the mindset of go big or go home and got 3 outed obv. (Not that I stood a chance in the long run anyway)


      Redeposited like 50 more, lost it again, redeposited my last 100$ and built it up/went pro. SO KEEP DEPOSITING GUYS!!!!!
