After 3 years of fail I become a winningplayer finally!!



My short history:

- Playing poker since 2006
- losing player about 2 years, no brm, bad play, about 30 times broke.
- 2009 new start at 25NL. Finally collect some winnings but failed about 10 times at 50NL.
- End of 2009 finally could beat 50NL for 4ptbb/100 over 100k hands
- Now playing 100NL and winning constantly.

A wise man once said nothing. For it is better to remain silent and have people think you are stupid, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Congrats, keep up the good work !

(I would be interested in seeing your lifetime graph. Ask nicely the Pokerstars support and they will send all the hands you played.)

6 months. +$7458
so about $1243/month
$310/week
~$15/hour
(and I think you said you play short sessions, so just guestimating 20 hours per week)


winning is great, and it's nice to hear success stories. but as far as bargs go... I've seen better.

not really. if OP is going to play short sessions and not "be an FPP grind monkey" then his RB and bonus situation wont be huge for his bottom line. maybe if/when he gets past 100nl or so. I'm no expert of FPP's so I could be off a little, but feel free to correct me.

Missing -> forgetting.

Gold Star : 23.2%
Platinum Star : 25.6%
(for fullring and assuming that he will spend his FPPs as supernova/1.6x)

That said, you're right. RB must only represent a small part of his winnings.

no. you're right for sure... but I guess my point was that 15/hour is no where close to brags i've seen. crushing? I don't know.
i think even if we add in RB it's less than 20/hour
