Iv'e hit a pretty bad run mostly due to bad bad beats so i lost most of my bankroll not that i was large.
I put in about $20 and have racked up about 500fpp's going up and down but never really bellow $20 till now.
i got low so i stopped playing cash games and started doing heads up because i usually have a really high win rate in the $2 matches (about 4 to 1) but i keep getting unlucky and can only win them 50 50 so i started doing the fifty 50 tournaments wich i had hit the cash in all but 2 times i had played in them. and i've not hit the cash for 5 in a row.
I just want to know some easy ways to rebuild back up to my $20
i know with the tournament stats i used to get i shouldn't lose money but i had a few leaks in my cash games i wanted to iron out and that cost me pretty much all my winnings and i'm fine with

I was intending to play in the cheap 10cent 55cent tournaments i played in one yesterday and a missclick made me go out early.
I also was planning on playing in the 20fpp tournaments.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions

also just lost my pso posting virginity

(Hedgehog wimpers) Please tell me that is a mistype and you mean Vpps. With the exception of acting as a buy-in to certain games, Fpps are WORTHLESS. At least for league players.



Now for some suggestions:
1 --- Assuming you have more than 20 vpps last month and are active, work the PSO for a top thousand spot. Minimum prize for an active player is $3, so anything earned helps.

2 --- There are Fpp games that pay cash. These might offer you a chance at building the bankroll without using cash. If you do not like turbo or hyperturbo games, there is one weekly game on Sundays that cost 50 Fpps that has a great structure. (tourney - vip - bronze)

3 --- If you have any step two tickets from the astrology freerolls, play these for the cash prizes.

4 --- If you are not active this month, but will be active next month, concentrate on the astrology freerolls and the $90K sat since these games offer a chance at a cash prize.

5 --- Others swear the 25¢ 45-player and 90-player games are great bankroll builders. I haven't tried these since there is no vpps earned.
