      Hi everybody!

      just been nosing around the site and thought id say hallo. I gotta say im really impressed so far!

      Ive been playing for around 18 months, just playing tourneys with friends, in local cardrooms and, for the past year or so, online. I will admit my online results have been less than impressive!

      But over the past couple of months I have come on in leaps and bounds, a bit of study here and there goes a long way! Once strange and unfamiliar concepts are becoming like second nature, and im looking forward to where my poker playing will take me.

      I do have one question for my opening thread. Whats the story with the $50 deposit? I already have a small bankroll on pokerstars, so can I just add to that?
      Im not too bothered about it, but I cant read all the articles!

      Greetings CreamyGoodness,

      Well unfortunatly as far as i'm concerned you can't transfer the $50 capital to any poker room that you already have a account, and also can't track that for StrategyPoints.

      You can however transfer to +20 poker sites, as long as you don't have already made an account over the one you choose. A full listing of Poker Rooms can be found here:
      PokerStrategy.com affiliated Poker Rooms

      If you have any particular or maybe more personal questions you can also use the Help/Ticket feature here:
      PokerStrategy.com Help

      Best Regards,
      Renard.

      Be welcome, i personally had the same issue, with a PokerStarts account set up, and even tried doing a second one (already e-mailed support so they close the 2ndary account).

      I transfer my starting capital to Full Tilt, but it really goes where you think it will suit you the best. Take a look over the reviews, even ask people on the forum about it. We're glad to help.

      And gl at the tables.

      Whats the craic? Well thats just how's things and such!

      However if someone asks, "How's the craic?" Then the only responce should be "it's sore, but I need the money!"
