      turned $30 into $1700.
      funny story really was 11FPP shy of releasing 1st depositers bonus at stars, so i deposited $30 dollars intent on earning 11FPP to clear $46 which i did easilly enough winning a $5 buy in sng. Then feeling quite confident i entered a $33 gnt 5k nlh and came 3rd earning $1360.
      asked for a cashout they said you have to wait 48hrs to after last deposit, as that was only 6 hrs ago i played on. The br dwindled to $1000 with some oppurtunistic play. then a $66 45 player sng 1st $770.
      one sweet day, only catch still waiting for stars to PAY.
      They emailed me on the 1st saying 3 to 10 bus days. Why does it take so long.

      cangrat simmo. This is suretanly a good upswing but remember that things won't always go so well in poker thats why it so important to have enough bankroll to last through these rough downswings. So in the future try more to keep to bankrollmanagement because this way you will stay a long turn winner.

      Enjoy you're winning and hope more good pokersessions will follow for you.

      Don't play any more poker and cash out and buy yourself something nice before you loose it all playing way out of your depth.

      Believe me, by telling you to stop playing because you're way out of your depth is the best advice your gonna get. Who am i to say your out of your depth? Someone who knows a hell of a lot more about poker than you.

      There are lots of threads like yours going from $10- $2000, etc. They all just mean one thing that you did not follow one of the biggest rules of poker which is to have proper bankroll management.

      It is awesome that you earned 1k in a matter of hours, and not a lot of people can do that and most fail. That is why people are trying to make you understand that the next time you re invest 10% you should play the lower buy-in SNG's.

      People went from $50- over a hundred grand by starting small and slowly climbing.

      Simmo it's all true you will eventually lose and you will hate yourself for letting it happen. You can't possibly win in the long run, unless you get a good brm.

      This topic gave me good laughts, "i earned 1k in couple hours, u didn't. U suck i rule. Ur jelaous. U don't pat my back, u bad" is teh win!
      While everything ppl above told was true, you will go broke sooner thank you think without proper BRM and well experience if you wanna play mid/high stakes poker.

      Congrats on the success. I would say if it work for you then go for it. But with MTT's even if you play perfectly you still need loads of luck to cash big. So get a nice sample size and then reevaluate if your strategy works. An example is jordgubban that went from $50-10k in one month, but he is still going and stressing the value of good BRM.

      Good luck

      obv noone did at the start of their careers but my start was not here at pokerstrategy. As for my 50-10k i did use a good brm that i was comfortable with. And changed it accordingly as i was moving up.
