      Cashing out can be done for various reasons. Maybe you are making too much profit and they call you saying that there is no more room in the vault. Maybe your grandma really liked that plastic crocodile she saw at the souvenir shop (and you're her favourite grandson/granddaughter anyway), or maybe the Government is breathing down your neck because of those unpaid bills.

      No matter the reason, you have to do this at some point, right? Let us know how it works for you and take part in this week's poll!

      No cashing out before making it to at least NL50

      And then fixed % of earnings regularly

      I've cashed out twice.

      First time a year ago, for my entire roll. After i decided to take a long break to finish up my studies.

      Second time was two weeks ago. I went on mega tilt after some insane beats on FTP. Tilt was hurting my BR, so i decided to cash out 90% of my roll ($1.3k) , pick a new game and rebuild it. Going pretty well so far.

      Cashout? Not when you're running like shit.

      "WITHDRAWAL" button? More like "WITHGROWL", am I right guys?

      When I'm moving my bankroll.
      There isn't anything that I can afford yet that merits life rake.

      a) If you are in an economic emergeny irl.

      b) You beat a high enough stake to make a decent amount of money over a longer period of time (withdrawal doomswitch not taken into account :D )

      c) You are going to quit.

      Cashed out about $10 000 over 3 yrs at NL FR and 6max $5 playing 4 tables and freerolls. Mostly for bills, to buy new bed/cooker/freezer/plasma tv/etc/etc... as 'requested' by SWMBO; hence BR fairly constant at about $200. :f_cry:

      Got my 2nd $50 starting capital about 6 months ago. Have cashed out $700 over the last few months. Bought PT3 initially and the rest has paid bills and covered a few nights out and entry to a live event at DTD.

      I plan to continue to cash out about 40% of my winnings each month, partly for motivation and entry fees for live tourneys at DTD and partly from need lol.

      I've cashed out a measly $489.36 (accounting for fees and exchange-rate bollocks). The rest of my BR of about $4k is waiting to magically transform itself into $6k just as soon as I stopped running like a returd. And yes, I do mean "returd".

      In around eight years time, (when I have reached the ripe old age of 81 and have to transport myself from the bathroom to my PC in my own Brunsonesque electric wheelchair) and FT finally decides to remove the broom from my backside and I open the platform to see that I have $6000, I intend to cash out every single dollar I earn above that amount, the moment I earn it. I shall take great satisfaction in requiring Moneybookers to initiate an endless series of $1 withdrawals while I sit at home doing wheelies in my electric wheelchair at the thought of ending up with about sixty-seven pence.
