Re: Okay, so I sold some play money and have $1800.

It sounds like you don't take losing real money well yet so I'd strongly advise against playing 50NL HU. You could dust off your whole roll in one downswing playing there. I'd just start multitabling the micros until you're more comfortable or play HUSNGs. They have the No Blind Increase HUSNGs if you want to get some "cash" experience.

Re: Okay, so I sold some play money and have $1800.

OP, I would highly recommend taking some of your winnings and signing up for a coaching site. (DC, Leggo, Stox, etc.)

Also, I think you're just barely rolled (or even under rolled) for 50nl hu. HU is high variance, especially if you're just starting out. 40 buyins might be fine if you were a proven winner at that stake, but you should have a bigger cushion starting out, imo.

Also, get rakeback on FT if you don't already. Hopefully you don't already have an affiliate tagged to your account. Email support and ask about it.

Yeah, peaked at about 495 or so. Would've been nice to pass 500 but I had an urgent customer lol.

I checked out CardRunners (for their day pass) and picked up some useful tips that actually did help a lot. I REALLY want to subscribe to PokerNews strategy and see the Patrik and Genius28 videos, but they aren't allowing new sign-ups (and they used to take Full Tilt transfers). I got Rakeback through Rakebackpros last month or so.

Re: Okay, so I sold some play money and have $1800.

A play money pro. Sick.

IMO. Set aside 500-750$ as your roll. Hire a coach, play 25NL or whatever while he's sweating you(should be more +EV) and play some more 10NL until you are beating it.

If you are serious and not just bragging (this is a solid brag, actually, if true, which I am unsure of), then you will want to tell us what you plan on playing, and what you have played to win your play money, so we can give you useful suggestions.

Re: Okay, so I sold some play money and have $1800.

I actually know someone who bys play money becasue she likes playing the "high Stakes" play money tables. She pays like $50 every few months or so for $1-2mil in chips.

Also OP how have you been a member here since 07 and only play Play money?
