      Welcome to PokerStrategy William, good to have you on board.

      Congrats on your first win, nice one, first of many I hope.

      Be patient with the money, it generally does come through very quickly, but occasionally there are small delays/id checks that are unavoidable I'm afraid.

      It is however totally worth the short wait and you can continue to read up on the strategy guides, visit live coaching sessions & browse/post items in the forums whilst you wait.

      Freeroll tournaments are also a good starting place for bumping up your early bankroll.

      Wishing you every success, good luck at the tables.
