      Today I started my poker fun with the $50 bonus offer. After 8hrs of play, i've made it to $321 @ $0.50/$1 tables. PartyPoker player level seems a little bit worse than UniBet's & PokerStars which explaines the nice bankroll growth. Tomorrow is a new day and I'll keep ya posted about the progress :)

      Thanks for the tips so far :)

      moooooofx, nice results but are you playing by the SSS Strategy? I think you are not new to poker since you are starting at $0,50/$1? :)

      Could you post some hands in the SSS Sample hands? Intressted in that.

      And I wish you alot of succes!

      I Play poker for a half year with friends but don't dare to play at those limit's yet, so I started playing 0,05 / 0,10 by the strategy's and it is going well, still - $7 dollar but im getting to the $50 again, hope it will be $50+ soon.

      With kind regards!

      I really suggest you stick to your bankroll management, you wouldn't be the first (friends :( ) that I see going broke because of playing way over their limit.

      Hi moooooofx!

      Congratulations to your success. But as Yoghi already mentioned: please stick to the rules of the bankroll management.

      Good luck at the tables!

      I play poker for 2 years now, at the local casino (Holland Casino) and fcurz with my friends.

      Today was not bad, I made $118 which totals $439. Yes I play with the SSS but now and then I use my gut feeling (like calling small raises with 9-10s). I started first at the 0.05/0.10 tables and after I made it to $150 i took $100 and started playing at 0.5/$1, I called an all-in with two other callers (I already had trips 10 on the flop, on which i naturally checked :P ) and won $190.

      I'd like to play at the lower blinds but I can't stand the wait for a good hand and then winning $2.50, it just not worth it for me.

      Today I had unfortunaly cash-out $250 for paying the rent and some stuff, but tomorrow I'll start with $50 @ 0.25/0.50 and go from there.

      I'll keep the bankroll tips in mind...

      moooooofx, nice bankroll you have build up already :) I only played sit&go @ Holland Casino. Bit affraid of risking a lot of euro's in the cash games there, blinds are like 1/2 euro?

      I still -$7, but I get a lot more trust in my game. So I soon hope to be +$50, but I see it hard in :(
