      Well I "borrowed" this thread from German forum :)
      So, as title is asking...
      How is your 2nd starting capital doing?

      What type of poker are you playing, what limits, how big is your BR, how much bonus did you already clear, etc...

      FL SH 0.1/0.2
      126,89$ (101,19€)
      Cleared 4x10$.
      ~3150MCP

      Let's see who is doing the best job :)

      $10 of the $100 left to clear.

      Deposited $50 for the %200 bonus and so I could enter that tourney. (did not finish in the money)

      Had a bad losing streak a few days ago after gaining the bankroll to go up to NL .25/.50 and still recovering. Now back down to NL .10/.20.
      BR at Mansion $83.31 MCP: 6805 and rising.

      Got to Gold status for the first time.
      YeeHaaa!

      Still sitting at about $65 as I realized a different bonus needed to be finished off first.

      Mines at $45 but i have had a go at like everything. SSS, NL2 SH, NL2 HU, PLO and a few tournies. Oh and some FL which i will carry on doing to clear the bonus. Ive heard FL10 is quite fishy and i think i can 6 table.

      Edit:FL10 is fishy. Ive never played FL before but just stickin to the basic starting hands chart (pretty much) and im making money and gaining lots of MCPs from 6 tabling.

      $45
      MCP:1690
      Bonus: 8 x $10

      I'm playing this weird FL variant where there are no caps on the betting!

      Lots of people are playing though so it must have something to it?!

      SSS NL20 (yes, outside BRM - I don't care! NL10 is too slow to clear MCPs and too much of a pain to select tables from when you're trying to play 10 at a time! Don't try this at home kids :P ).

      Bankroll: ~$80
      Bonus: 1 x $10 cleared
      ~1 100 MCPs

      Tried to play SNG's but hardly any traffic. Been watching a lot of NL SH videos and tried that. Not too bad so far..

      BR $61.43

      Using mine to play the Prague/Churchill/Auckland 30 player SNGs. I got a good ROI on them when I played at Titan, so figured it's a good way to mix it up since I play mostly cashgames at Stars.

      So far down to $40.

      update

      NL10 FR BSS
      5 tables (picking the pace up to clear the bonus)
      Aprox. 4 hrs a day (no more than 2hrs at a time, learned this the hard way)
      Cleared 4x10$ over 20,719 hands of NL2/4/10

      $186.23 (was at $196 at one point)
      3231 MCP + 3888 bonus MCP(changed VIP status) = 7,119 MCP

      Next bonus $10 cleared at around 7,288 MCP. One month left before bonus expires...

      excuse my bragging...=S

      Today I finished with 50+100$ bonus. I needed exactly one month or better to say, 28 days (started at 3.2.).
      ATM I'm at 336$ playing at FL SH 0.25/0.50.

      Does the 50+100 bonus expire? I thought it was the same as Titan and could be cleared at your leisure.

      Yeah, it expires. Look at my account/bonus details.

      (if you registered prior to ~14.2 you have 2 months to clear. after ~14.2 is 6 months).

      I was so feared about the money being retreated that I went broke after doing some 1250 points. Maybe I will deposit later to clear bonus and the promotions was somehow more juicy then on Titan.

      But Titan and Mansion are all iPoker that I decided to play only on one site. On Mansion I had very very bad times when loosin with anythink and it tilts me litle bit. When I lost 17$ with fullhouse 88822 to higher fullhouse 99922 with 9 on the river it was almost decided about my Mansion bankroll future. The problem is that I moved this bad luck streak to Titan. Now thinks goes better.

      So wish me not to tilt out even my first bankroll

      I have toted up my Titan and Mansion bankrolls to have roll almost sufficient to 0.5/1 FL but it wasn't work. On the tilt I gambled litle bit cos I knew that I must grow or lost quickly to possibly play with higher of my rolls.

      So I think one nice stary night I went to have a look at 1/2 limit...
