Turning 1000 Play Money into $400 (Again)

A few months ago I played for 45 days straight of nothing but play money on Full Tilt Poker and made enough to sell for $600. It was put into my bank account except I had no more play money left over to win more of it. I'm going to start with 1000 play money chips and try to turn it into 100,000,000 as quick as possible and sell it for $400 again. I'll try and make at least 200,000,000 though so that I can have more left over so that I can keep playing. Also, I live in the US and go to college.

Bankroll: 3,000

At the moment I'm just registering into sit&go's and reloading my chips by 1000 at a time. At 15,000 I'm going to start grinding the 5/10 tables and play a <15% vpip until I have 100,000 chips and then move to the 25/50 tables and do the same thing until 100/200. Should not be long.

I might be missing something but why would anyone pay for playing money?

Hmmm. Glad a US player is making money out of nothing with FREE. Bastard still has some of my cash. Are you playing under the same account pre- black. Friday? Didn't know we can download their software.

Thanks for the encouraging words, guys. I just hit 20k hands in three days and am going to play another long session after this. If you can't tell, I'm just posting my results after every 2500 hands.
