      Wow! Congrats! I guess you took you money to NL50 and doubled up :D . Serious, tell us what limit did you play and did you play SSS or BSS or maybe your own way.

      Day 2:

      Well, finally I've decided to close the tables. It was a long day, but with not bad results. ;)

      As you can see, I'm now silver and I feel happy with it. As I estimate, I'll become golden in the next few days.

      Today my bankroll continued to grow up - some $50 was added. However, that's not all. Today is a day of PartyPoints - I earned 148 more PartyPoints, so now I have a total of 204 basic PartyPoints. That means I need only 96 points more to clear the $50 bonus. This should be completed tomorrow. ;)

      Sorry for my bad English as I'm tired now after a hard working day!

      ----------------------------
      *Bankroll: $151.24
      *PartyPoints: 204
      ----------------------------

      On saturday I decided to play some PLO25 on Stars, which my BR didn't allow according to BRM.. Well.. I made little over $100.. On sunday I though I would try again. Played exactly the same way.. Lost about $120.. Just thought I'd let you know..

      It's called variance and it might very soon hit you in the face..

      But congrats on the first two days. Variance or not, tripling in 2 days is nice.

      Cheers,
      Kimber88

      PS. I'll never play outside BRM again.. I just feels so bad when variance strikes.

      Playing beyond your bankroll makes you broke sooner or later. I already knew it. Thanks anyway. ;)

      As far as i know, furiouscar could be playing poker for 7 years and only recently joined PS, so he might be a pro. :D Not very likely but still. Or he is a natural talent.
      Why would anyone judge him by his silver status only?
      We all know that if you are good you can get from 0 BR to 10k$ in short time.
