      nice one :D well, when I wanted to get out of titan (before update) I played NL10 SH with 4.5BI BSS 'cause I needed ~200 points. I would say it was extreme (no, I didn't go broke, was up about 5$). BUT playing 7.5 with 100$ that's just... LOL

      I play poker for a bit of fun, got my bankroll upto 800dollars by mostly playing 7 dollar super turbos and the occasional bigger game. When i do disrespect brm i seem to do well. Oh well i put 20pounds into my account and right now just cashed out 400pounds.
      So no need to ask for $5 of people just yet

      you should withdraw, go to the casino and wait til black comes up at least 5 times in a row, then its gotta go red so chuck it on red a few times then BOOM. Rich

      As a general rule at least one person per forum should be serious, otherwise the message never gets across to players about bankroll management.

      Poker is a game of 90% luck and 10% skill. Anything can happen. In order to take advantage of the 10% skill element you must make sure that the 90% luck does not make you go busto! To do this you need to learn a concept known as "bankroll management"

      You must make sure you have enough buyins to a game otherwise luck can kill you anytime the damned bitch wants. Here are some lists I would advise following:

      Regular SNGs (not turbo) - 50 buyins
      Super turbo SNGs - 100 buyins
      BSS cash table - 25 buyins
      SSS cash table - 50 buyins
      BSS shorthanded cash table - 50 buyins

      You have been using <20 buyins for the 7.50 super turbo and luck killed you (almost). IGNORE YOUR EGO! Your ego tells you that moving down to $3.80 is a FAIL but it is not. The goal is to protect your bankroll. If you need incentive to move down then do something sick that might be a challenge for yourself. You need motivation to play these lower limits so give it to yourself.

      - Play 200 super turbos in a day

      Wouldn't that be sick? Other people are playing like 2-3 while grinders maybe 20-30 in a session. Really outdo them. Or

      - Learn a new game

      I would recommend omaha H/L since this game has the least variance out of any poker game availible right now

      Don't come to the forums to tell us how you used crappy bankroll management and DEFINITELY don't brag about it! Your biggest enemy is yourself.
