Well, after 8 months on Pokerstars I have finally broke the $100 barrier. Gonna play the Storm on Sunday and see if I can increase it, but currently have $25 in cash and $96 in T$ thanks to the Hyper-Turbo Sats for the SCOOP. not bad for starting with $0.

I have been playing the $1.88 sats to SCOOP 3 (6 person, Hyper-Turbo), and the $3.75 O/8 to SCOOP 30 (6 person, Hyper-Turbo)

Congrats! I hope to get there soon. I am looking for these, but don't see them. Maybe they just aren't running right now.

Congrats, I've been inching up slowly but mostly cash games. Little bit afraid to risk that much on tourneys right now.

Ori, I did win $50 here and $30 there, but always blew through it. Now I am actually playing smarter and finding the tournaments that pay me better.

Well, came out of the Storm, played 4 $1.88 hyper that I wound up losing in 3rd place with the best hands every time, so I got risky, and did this..

Is it just me, or are satellites to rebuys sort of pointless?

Congrats on the $55 win, eric.

nice, just be very careful,

i started with 0 got up to $250 and then slid all the way down to like $50 (extreme tilt mixed with larger buy ins killed my bankroll pretty fast)

got back up to $200 at one point then started dropping again. I decided to cash out for the first time for $100 and kept about 40 to play with. got below about 20 but now im back up to over $50

so ya just be careful as the money gets higher so do the losses

but congrats

Yeah, thanks guita, believe me, it took a lot for me to take that chance and I am going to be very cautious from here on out. I want a good bankroll for the SCOOP, as I have 3 events I have my eye on playing. I am going to get back to some serious PSO play for the next few days and in April between work and life events. It will help me not play some of these I have been playing.
