      20hrs.? I've spent that much time just studying the articles.

      I went from Basic to Silver in about 3 days. My Br when I went silver was probably about the same as yours but there's variance to contend w/ especially in NL.

      GL, you should be Gold by Feb. if your not broke.
      :D

      Heheh.

      If I did follow BRM, I admit it was an agressive one. I started at $3.40 and decided to move down to $1.20 if I hit $35. .

      I moved up to $5.50 games at ~$140 and decided to move down if I hit $100.

      [x] Following BRM of sorts.
      [x] Partying til 4:30am so you can catch the sng coaching.
      [x] having a life, time of it too. gf always comes first :tongue:

      Sorry 'bout that ;)

      Thanks Harold. Maybe more than 20 hours by now but I'm a fast reader ;) 3 days sounds insane - do you multitable? I only play 2 tables at a time, sometimes 3 - at regular speed. For me this is great- previously I was only a chip donor.

      I'm doing my best with the bronze stuff (not much left to read) and still waiting for the points to kick in here!

      I was playing one table when I started, probably close to 15 hrs. a day.
      :D

      I've just started the "grinding" more recently. only two tables though, that's enough for me.

      I recommend learning FL for all beginners before they go any further, but that's just me. :D GL whatever you play.
