      how do you manage to play NL20 with only £6 left (when you raise to 0.8)
      Play SSS if you are not playing and you will get the points. If you are playing SSS and you are loosing it is probably because you. On NL25> you can have downswing, but the field is so weak that even then you will be at least break even.

      Give some stats, no matter what you are playing and maybe some one here can help you.

      Best regards,

      I got to 2100 in a week playing $5.50 SnG's and NL20 SSS, meaning I'll make 8500 in a month if I go on like this, so it's definitely not impossible. And with the points boost you get after hitting 2k MP it gets even easier.

      About suckouts on Mansion and Titan, they're frequent, but not as frequent as the not-suckouts. You just remember suckouts better because they have a negative psychological impact. I've had a hand today where my opponent pushed over my raise with Q8o (board 428, I had QQ), I call and the turn brings another 8. Less than 10% probability, but it happened. As a result I busted out, feeling awful. What I didn't take into consideration is that I usually win my SnG's because of that type of play, and that if my opponents didn't occasionally catch that impossible card, they wouldn't play like donks.

      Having only £6 left, there really isn't a limit that lets you play according to your BRM and you'll most likely go broke. It's best to temporarily deposit some more until you have the bankroll to play safely, without having to rely on luck to make profit and not lose everything.
