      Hey thehagistig!

      Any friend of Pleno is a friend of ours! Welcome to PokerStrategy.com!

      Starting back at the beginning is a really good idea in my opinion! You can also pick up a freebie bankroll if you wish by passing our poker quiz!

      What games do you intend on playing cash or SNG?


      All the best,
      Gary.

      Wohoo!

      Well done sir!

      I'm an SNG player by trade myself although I do not play at all myself right now! So, you planning to start playing cash games straight up or gonna start off with SNGs again?

      Errmmm????

      Will see what traffic the site has that I download from. Probs start on the SnG's as they are so easy to play by rote

      Hi and welcome

      That sounds a little like me going back to basics. This is definitely the place to catch back up

      Hi Ras, not d/l a new room yet.
      Got 4 days off from Sunday, so likely to sort this then.
      Already have a few of the rooms listed so likely go for something like poker770?

      Hi there thehagistig,

      Speaking of throwing stacks at you...

      When you make a first deposit at Poker700 they will give you a 200% bonus, e.g., deposit $100 and get a further $200 bonus.

      There's more...

      They also give you $20 free; the first $10 being added to your account immediately you make you first deposit, the second a week later.

      There's more...

      If you make your first deposit using Skrill, they (Skrill) will deposit $20 into your Skrill account the next working day just for doing it.

      That's $40 free just for making a first deposit via Skrill to Poker700.

      Free money, it worked for me! :D

      All our poker rooms have lots of bonus and promotions going on regularly though, here is the link to all the rooms with descriptions, bonus details and download instructions:

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/online-poker-rooms/

      Have a great time here and at whichever room you join,

      Mal.

      How long does it take for your account to go silver after depositing?

      My account has changed to bronze after I opened an account at 770 and deposited, but not turned to silver yet

      Hi again,

      When you earn 100 Pokerstrategy points you become silver status, this includes the 10 points added per day as a bonus from Pokerstrategy. :)
      You get 5 strategy points per dollar rake paid at Poker770, so it doesn't take long.
      Alternatively, if you're impatient like me, there is our points shop where buying silver status is very cheap. I've posted the link for you if you:

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/buy-points/

      If you need any more help just ask. :)

      Regards,

      Mal.

      Okay, cheers for that
      But why does it say when you sign up that you instantly become silver when you make a deposit??

      Hello thehagistig,

      i hope you already enjoy all the benefits at Poker770. One of benefits is that you receive at least 100 PS points when making your first deposit. Unfortunately those points doesn't appear on your PokerStrategy account instantly but i am sure you will get them in a few days.

      I suggest you to go through some interesting Bronze content and before you know it you will have Silver status :f_biggrin: .

      Here is the full list of benefits you got when you joined Poker770 through us. Poker770: Frequently Asked Questions - Free Poker Money. I am sure you already saw this but still.

      Good luck and see you in Silver soon :s_cool: .
