      Hi all, I joined just over a year ago, lost my bankroll a couple of times (TAF included) playing $1 and $2 sit n go`s, until a few months into my poker journey I discovered the MTT`s!!! And now, after nearly a year of playing mostly MTT`s $1-$10 buy in, rebuy & freezeout, I have decided to post my successes!!!

      For informations, I study and work during the week, so this is what I managed to make by playing weekends (although, to be fair, I play about 10h a day, saturday and sunday), and my usual per-day spendage on buyins is $70-$100, usually I manage to break even, or lose a bit, and sometimes I`m down $100, other times I`m up $200. All in all, I`ve had a lot of success and profits playing MTT`s, never went broke after I discovered them, and now am sitting comfortably on a $340 bankroll, after some withdrawals and heavy downswings.
      Although I do have a Sharkscope-approved $400 loss from Sit n Go`s!!! =/

      These are my major wins (1st place or over $100) from MTT`s:


      Total is $1999


      What do you guys think? Is this super super good, to be expected, or below average?


      Cheers

      Very nice. But why withdraw when you can save up and move to higher limits? $5 tourneys aren't any harder to beat, and you'll ultimately maximize your profits. Anyway, congrats with your winnings, hope they went to good use.

      Well, last time I made a withdrawal, it was $125 after I had reached $600. Then I had a super downswing and went down to $200, back to $300 now.

      I mostly take money out so that:
      1) I can buy nice things for me (bought a nice watch, guitar hero band kit, etc)
      2) If I ever do go bust, then at least I'd have made some money off poker, it won't be "oh, I had $900 in my account, then 1 month later I have only $10, I could've made so much money from poker!"

      But yes, my main goal is to slowly move up the MTT limits, making a small withdrawal here and there, just to make sure I am "profiting" from all these hours I spend on poker.
