      Play at the 5/10 cent games and forget about your bonus. Play to win not to get your bonus off. I suggest you read the short stack strategy.

      Hi johnboy1,

      Don't be too hard on yourself, a lot of the members here actually lose their starting capital (through leaks in their game and not reading the strategy guides carefully enough etc) before finally getting the hang of it and rebuilding up again.

      Take your time to read the strategy guides carefully and like thedahl has already suggested, it is important that you play according to appropriate BRM. Don't get too concerned about winnings and/or bonuses at the moment, the most important thing is to learn from your mistakes and correct them first and it's cheaper to do this at the lower levels :P

      We all have faith in you my friend, good luck.

      Best regards,
