Yeah, mine is released in $10 increments too (just got $100 bonus, ***** FTP).

Why is there so few deep tables at 50NL and why is it 10 times harder to start deep tables there as opposed to 25NL where fish just jump in instantly?

I wonder what the max bonus is for the Biggest Bonus Ever? Seems like most regs got 200, but maybe high limit players get more?

XXjimiExperienceXX way to be a tosser. Someone needs to tell me how to get extra cash on top of my rakeback - a clear outline for a PS regular would be handy. Kthks.

specifically ftp points and ironman stuff.

cheers

Ironman --> Medals --> Buy Bonuses ?

Aren't FTP points pretty useless as they affect rakeback when you buy stuff with them ??

Edit: You can aslo sell FTP Points, think it's like $3.5 per 1000 points. Affects rb from what I understand. Think you net $2.15 per 1000 points in the end.

You can also buy an entry to the 1800 FTP 9 player SnG and win a $24+2 token, then use than in a bigger tourney/satelite.

My bonus clears at $20 increments, and unlike someone said earlier, they do give you $20 in your account right away. (Atleast for this one)

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

How do you qualify for the medals?
If I play 5k of FR 50NL per day 20 days a month or 100k of hands - How would I be monetarising the iron man bonuses?

TY.

20 days will get you Gold, I think that's 70 medals plus 70 bonus ones if you select bonus medals instead of freerolls... plus ironman plus medals, I think you should scrape 5 a day playing 5k hands @ 50nl so that's about 270 total/mo which is worth about $50

they're valued at $5/1000pts which is taken out of your mgr

so if you buy random stuff with them it's effectively worth $3.65/1000pts after the RB hit

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Think I might move down to $25nl for a bit to work thru a downswing and hopefully regain some confidence. Very disappointing as I was hoping to be close to $100nl soon. I am still rolled for $100nl but my current downswing has me doubting myself so I think moving up would be bad. I have never experienced such a horrific run in my life but that is poker for you. Anyways, My goal is to move down to $25nl but increase my tables, I was planning on doing this soon anyways, and hopefully spend a brief period of time down there and hopefully be back up to $50nl by the end of the month hopefully less and spend next month trying to get comfortably rolled for 100nl. I will be going from 6 to 8-9 tables. I feel pretty comfortable playing 6 and think its time to increase the tables a bit and see how it goes.
Sound like a good plan or should I just stick it out at $50nl?

he could be, seems to be solid. We sit at a lot of tables together but have very few hands against each other.

is *x*xnegatron420*x*x on this thread. For a guy that lost a lot of money to me, he really thinks I am a donk and always reinforces my image as a donkey at the table. I Like to personally thank him for my new TV, having no tilt control and helping me install a spewy table image at the table.

I think its a good idea to play a range of stakes rather than being stubborn and sticking to only 1 level based on bankroll. I play mostly NL50 but will play NL100 if the games look good or play NL25 if I'm trying out new stuff, want to practice multi-tabling or just don't feel I'm 100% but still need to grind out my ironman points.

Are you planning to tile or stack as you increase tables?
I've been moving from 6 to 9-12 tables and find tiling is getting harder to follow ... but I really don't like stacking

He's a friend of mine. He's actually a really really solid player. Also, sammyg have we ever played together at all? cuz i dont recognize your name, unless its different on ftp, also i think you make solid posts and keep up the good work.

my FTP name is very close to this one. I never said he wasn't a good player, but he is not gods gift to poker like he says he is when he at the tables. I have no idea why he keeps making moves at me, its not like I seek him up, but some of his lines are ******ed against me.

If you're still rolled for 100nl, you should be kind of overrolled for 50nl then...

So I presume it's not a devil advice to tell you to stick in there....

Perhaps reduce tables...

I plan on staying tiled because I have dual monitors but have stacked in the past when I played SNG's and its not terrible. When I would mass table SNG's I prefered a stacked tile setup. Usually had 4 grides of a couple stacked tables.

I have always been over rolled for the levels I play and like playing with a minimum 30 buyins. I am beating the level but it has been pretty rocky and my current downswing just has my mindset in a negative mood and think I need to work back to a positive one and work thru the downswing. I have played 4 tables in the past and am comfortable at playing 6 tables right now. I dont mind playing over rolled at my level and dont want to move to $100nl tell I am comfortably rolled and am comfortably beating my current level.

Definitely a solid plan...

I played overolled in the past and it's very, very comfortable...

I have been taking shots underolled and I became the worst nit ever... embarassing and not fun... but hopefully I will be back soon to a normal play...

Regarding the downswing, since your still rolled, I'd play less tables at my current level to really understand if it's me or something else...

Sometime just having a break and coming back with a slower pace helped me a lot... and the upswing was just around the corner...

Hopefully that will be the case. I have been reviewing my hands afterwards and dont see to much spew or terrible play. There were a couple times when I could have saved a little but nothing horrific. Just standard bad beats but lots of them. I am more worried about the overall rockyness of the my 50nl game.
