      Wow... that's really weird. I got my $50 late last year, and am also playing at cake, and have had no problem registering for any games or tourneys. My BRM is looser than what pokerstrategy recommends, but is still never more than 5% per game. I've never had any restriction whatsoever. What exactly does the message say? ?(

      RING GAMES - seat denied:bankroll protection: to successfully manage your bankroll, please choose a lower limit or different game type for your own safety. you will have access to more games as your bankroll and experience increase.

      TOURNAMENTS - failed to register for tournament:bankroll protection: to successfully manage your bankroll, please choose a lower buy in or a non cash buy in for your own safety, you will have access to more games as your bankroll and experience increase.

      hmmmm , yes i have over $100 in my account and im playing 5c 10c blinds , and $1 sit n gos , i actually cant even register for a 25c rebuy i get the same message. Very disgusting....

      Again... totally weird. Even when I was at $100 I was playing $5 sng's with no restrictions at all. Until you hear from someone official here, did you try e-mailing Cake support to see what they tell you? I'd be pissed too though! That's pretty stiff! X(

      Hi handyandy89,

      I'd suggest contacting the Cake Poker customer support, as we can't look into the details of your account there.

      Best Regards,

      Hadi

      omg the same thing is happening to me , but i got my bonus on bet 365 and im getting a similar message..

      We're sorry, but your account is limited to play at lower stakes only. PokerStrategy.com - bankroll too small According to PokerStrategy.com’s successful bankroll management scheme, your bankroll is either too small or you have not been playing at bet365 long enough to play at this table or tournament. For your own protection and to help achieve your goal of becoming a winning poker player, please choose a smaller table limit or tourney with a lower buy-in. You can join the following Texas Hold’em tables or tournaments: • Fixed Limit: Blinds up to $0.10 / $0.20 • No-Limit: Blinds up to $0.05 / $0.10 • Sit n Goes/Tournaments: Buy-In up to $1 (without fees) This limitation will be removed when any of the following conditions are met: • 30 days have passed since receiving your $50 cash bonus. • A deposit of at least $100 is made. • 1000 raked hands on cash tables have been played.

      what a joke , can someone please help me out. i already spoke to bet 365 and they couldnt help me, thanks.

      Whats rediculous about that? You have 24BI and using proper BRM you're ment to have like 100BI to play MTT....
