Off to the races! Time to gain some Poker skill

So, I figured I would give a last update since there is only about 20 minutes left in the month.


I achieved Silverstar, and maintained my bank over $200!  I have slipped since the high of $300, but I am not squandering my bankroll.  While doing this, I have also earned my very first Stellar reward.  This is my first taste of reward from playing at Pokerstars  Needless to say, I am looking forward to the next one!!

I've taken some advice, and decided I should be less aggressive with my bankroll.  Instead, I am trying something new... multitabling.  This will be a new experience for me... so I am going to take it slow.  I figure I can probabaly handle 4 tables at a time.  I am reverting back to the $1.50 stakes, and I will see how it goes.


While doing this, I will want to continue to maintain my Silverstar status.  At $1.50 stakes, this will mean more game play, but I think I am up for the challengeLooking at the reward levels, I don't think I will be palying enough to get to Godstar yet.  I will have to geenrate a bigger bankroll so I can take on the larger stakes in order to make that happen.  I know I don't have the time to put in to play more, so I have to make the most of the time I play.  I think maintaining silverstar will be enough of a challenge, so I will be happy with that!

I am enjoying this game more and more, and I am always discovering new things with the site.  I am sure I have only scratched the surface.  Recently I have looked into the Battle of the planets.  I noticed on some of my email notes where I have cashed, that I earned leaderboard points.  I had no clue what these were, and what it meant.  I finally decided to take a tour of the pokerstars site to learn more.  Now I understand what those leaderpoints are, and what they mean.  So, now I have another way to track my success.  Getting on the leaderboard must be tough, but now this can be something to shoot for as well.  I think I can play enough to try to place on the low orbit  leaderboard.


I thank everyone who has read, and provided some comments to me.  It is nice to see there is some interest out there.  In turn I will also be spending more time seeking out other blogs as well, and throwing my two cents around where I feel like it!

Anyway, 2 minutes to midnight here, and I am looking forward to a whole new month of play!


See you at the tables!
