Most makeup/ How long

What is the most makeup you have accrued and how long has it taken you to clear it?


Mine is 25K and been going on for 2-3 months.








I dont play as high buy ins as most of you here probably. Avg buy in of like 90$

Odd that this comes up now. I just got off the phone with my father. During the convo the topic switched to poker and how i am now backed. He could not seem to grasp this concept.

Interesting, do you think a lot of people get backed partly to convince their family / loved ones that they're not in danger of losing everything? I personally think people are nuts to get backed and would be better off keeping their online action and selling live action on a per-tournament basis. But I know how hard it can be to convince non-poker players that it's OK to put so much of your own money at risk all the time.

Ok,i fear I will get flamed for this as it may be a noob of a question...



Are you an mtt pro? If you are then what are you living off when you're so deep in make-up?

Do you have your own non-mtt action or something?

This is a general question if anybody else wants to pick it up and run with it.
