      ok i posted about a week or 2 ago about me doubling the BR from $50 to $100.

      I stuck to BRM and managed to double it again to $200.
      I then gave SnG's ago. I started at $10's and i kept winning, so i moved up and up. The biggest SnG i have played is a 6 handed $55 Buyin. (i know, i shoulden't have but wanted one shot at it ( i came 2nd))

      Due to my big success im on $484!
      What limits would you guys recommend i play now? THANKYOU!

      :f_mad: read the articles, and hit a downswing, seriusly you need a downswing to never do stuff like this again.

      i gave one SnG of $10 ago at first and won, i was therefore playing on the winnings from the SnG and if i dropped below $200 i would have defo moved down. But i won every time. So i don't think it was that bad.

      Seriously DecMate, listen to your fellow community members, they're talking a lot of sense and we've all seen so many threads like this many times before and they almost always end in tears.

      Taking risks may earn a few short term $, but gamblers never win, the odds are always stacked against you. Variance can appear at any time and bite you on the bum :P

      Earn real respect by taking the time to learn the game inside & out and by fine-tuning your own (at the lower levels), you will thank us all in the longer term.

      Having said this, we all of course wish the very best of luck and continued success.

      because i'm not playing on a PS linked site, and the only sites im linked to suck. (Mansion).
      I can't link to fulltilt / pokerstars because i had them before.
      I'm never going to become a silver :(

      I have started a few of these threads myself Decmat, going from 50 to 2k, 4k, 0k, and it all ended in 0,00$ :D

      Except for the last time where i actually started using BRM

      The s&g's u should play with a 500$ roll are 11$ and when at 600$ or more u can take shots at 22$.

      Have fun gambling or grinding whichever ur capable of :)

      Of course, you got it. Let us know how you get on :)

      Re PokerStrategy Status, sorry to hear your not linked, but other poker platforms are coming online all the time, so you could always invest/transfer to a new linked platform sometime. Just click on the PokerRooms tab, although probably best to try a few on your current platform first.

      hey again :D

      i managed to build my bankroll to 600$! but it's me & girlfriends 1 year anniversary so i have widthdrawn 150$ (£100 about) seen as i am college and don't have a job, just to get her a little somthing :f_biggrin:

      But overall i have been grinding lots of HU $5 and feel like i've improved a little but still need lots of work. i think my strongest point is SnG's overall but do need to work on HU! But wish me luck :D and yeah i think once i build my BR to 1K+ i'll trans it to a site so i get PS points which i really need!
      :f_love:
