      Hi guys

      After noticing $10 deposit challenge . I decided to do something even harder, start from absolute 0$

      I have been playing poker for a few years now, had some success but had to withdraw it for studies and family. So i am keen to prove to myself i can become hero from zero

      But I think that start from $10, even $5 or $1 would save you couple of weeks

      Thanks for support guys! <3 pokerstrategy community :)

      Had few close shots, bankrollmob 25$freeroll, baltic league 0.11$ (won freeroll satellite) but lost a flip for 2nd stack on bubble, sadly :D
      anyway, checked my email today and found out i've got 2.5k$ depositors freeroll ticket at mansion poker, horey! haven't played there since i lost all my money there lol :D so putting a lot of hope into this freeroll also i don't remember how many days ago my account was created, i may be able to join 25$ new players freeroll and as i remember cash in it is easier than to steal a candy from a kid :D

      Goodluck everybody!

      boom!
      lost ak<aq with 2 tables left for monster chip lead, field was super soft so managed to get back up and finish 5th, lost kjs<aa (12bb)
      i am happy and disappointed, played perfectly all the way up until the final table.
      played final table poorly, could have saved a lot of chips but, made 2bad preflop opens, and 1 stupid call otf (didn't cost me much but still a spew).

      Anyway i am super happy with this result, second day and 134$ woohoo!

      Hi raugas14
      Like the sound of your challenge. I was going to deposit at titan, but I might try hero from zero there.

      Look forward to seeing your updates and good luck at the tables.

      I done this on Betfair this time last year after I had a bit of tilt. I just removed my balance over to my sportsbook and started from scratch. They had $5 freerolls running at the time with numbers in the low hundreds, they then had $5, $10 and $50 added tourneys which I played. It took me about a month to get to $100.

      I also got a free $5 on PaddyPower, I started at 20c SnGs and used sensible bankroll management, I'm aiming for $1,000 but my balance atm is $315 - I've also bought a TV for my bedroom out of profits, I'm really pleased with that :s_biggrin:

      I've £6 in my Boyle account but I've played their IPO twice with profits. I'd love to play this year again and I'd do the same but they are lower tier I-Poker and there's not much volume around the 50c games. There's not great promotions either on the site to warrant a deposit or build up.
