      Hello Smiles30,

      The StrategyPoints are updated every several days - when the poker sites send us their lists. Your points should be updated the next time Full Tilts sends us their lists :)

      Best regards,
      SoyCD

      Could be dead wrong, but winning 60$ in 100 hands probably means you're not playing according to BRM... I'd read up on that if you don't want to go broke within the next 100 hands

      Are U OK????

      BRM is not a religion!

      I have my stop losses. I play with 5 - 10 USD entry double and tripled in one hour, then 2-3 hours nothing. Study your opponents and the hands they play - then u can go more easy with BRM at least on the small tables! Just tried once 1-2 USD blinds and lost 20 USD in 10 mins - so I decided to make the next step when I can make 100 USD per day for a week on the smaller tables with minimal risk. Thats my approach. BRM is much too safe and it PREVENTS hands that are weaker but would call you, to give them your money because - you dont let them see a flop with betting 4 times big blinds!! think about it!!!!So the only time you get called its when your opponent has a AA or KK - or similar - then its a coin flip - does not make sense tooo meeee

      This does not make sense. Since when does villain calling range have anything to do with bankroll manegement? If thats what you said... Because bankroll management prevents opponents from calling you with anything but KK and AA and then its a coinflip?...

      Bankroll manegement is just so you dont go busto. Broke. Finish. Gone.

      Thats all the "strategy" there is too it.


      And you will go busto. :D

      AA calls and is a coin flip?

      [] OP knows what coin flip is

      read the strategy articles, BRM is not a religion but no-one will ever last more than a month without any kind of BRM.

      good for you.

      anyway SoyCD already answered your question, i'm sure everyone here tried to help you to prevent you from losing money playing poker like lots of people do, play a strategy etc.... but if you don't care for it that's not a problem.
