      Hello there. My names Eddie. My son recently introduced me to poker. He told me about this site, and how it's a great way to really get started in the online poker world. I'm still awaiting my 50$ capital (sent them my ID, had to send it again because it "wasn't clear enough". Dang webcam".) but I was so eager to play that I used my sons account on Pokerstars to play some fixed limit Hold'em.. Anyhow, played at some of the lowest stakes possible with 10 dollers on the table, heres how it went (taken from my sons fancy poker software):

      But, I do have a few questions.. Is this a reasonable profit for a begginer playing at the 5 cent 10 cent cash tables? Or is the sample just too small to tell?

      P.S. I'm an old skool razz/Stud HI/LO player (used to play for fun at our local hall).

      Looking forward to seeing you at the talbes!

      Hello there Steve =D It's great to meet you. I decided to stick with the limit games, since that's what I do best. No idea how I'm going to fare in the NL games.. I'm already planning my bank roll, and I think it's full proof.. 1.00+0.10 doller Double or Nothings on Poker stars. My 50 doller should be well more than enough to beat the variation. If I'm lucky enough to climb my way to 100 dollers, I'll be playing the same 1.00+0.10 doller double or nothings, but I'll also be playing their 180 man SNG's. If I'm lucy enough to make it all the way to 200 dollers, I'll be playing thier 5.00+0.50 doller SNG double or nothings.

      I'm hoping to avoid the cash tables until I'm rolled for the 25 cent 50 cent tables, which is a long shot, considering I need around 2,000 dollers for that :baby:

      P.S. Can we allow people who have passed the quiz to watch bronze member videos ?( ? Atm, I only get 4 mins!! It's killing me D=

      Blah.. Once again, the images are not clear enough. I've tried two different cameras, uploaded several images of each at a time, and still not good enough.. Any suggestions for upping the quality ? Better camera? (Unfortunately, I dunno anyone with a scanner..)

      Better camera could do indeed the trick.
      Copy shops usually have scanners. Maybe you have one in the neighbourhood?
