Ok, i saw a couple of threads where people made some money and be happy (offcourse ). Now not cheer to soon you still have to proof your a winning player, after that you have to proof you can build that roll even more.
This thread is just a little reminder that it can be done, for example Jess (JessTheHuman) have nice profit as you can judge his scope. Also Jovi has a nice scope and guess more names i forgot. I put up some scopes of mine so you can judge that, remind i only play TAG ABC, so no crazy moves from me just standard ICM play (i only play SNG/MTT), i do have crazy moves but that just mostly at bubble time and just before final table and on final table.
Anyway i allways had the best deal (rakeback ect) and just like Jess the biggest part of my roll is just rakeback, points, freerolls.
My winnings total are $50K+ but withdrawed $10K last year just to feel how it was cos i never ever cashed out, so roll now atm is $40K+ but not playing that much only play for fun and to relax cos i like the game.
Most part of my roll is played at PKR but did many many gifts/deals ect on other sites, you can call me a bonus hunting whore.
Anyway this thread isnot meant as a brag, its just to show you that it can be done, i am not that great player i have just uber patience thats all.

Nice graphs doomdy congrats for your results!!!
One advice, one thing the poker world learn of the FTP fall was that the better place where you can have your bank is OUTSIDE the sites. Don´t you think that 20-30k will be better (and saffer) in your bank account?

In the last part of 2011 I didn't see you much at BRM, so I was glad to see you become more regular in 2012. You and a few other posters keep me coming back here to see what is going on, and learn what I can.
Congrats on the continued success doomdy, you show everyone how this game can be fun AND profitable. Big and

I keep my poker accounts very low, online poker and his legislation is on the edge, you never know what tommorrow brings, so yes your right.

If i am short my range goes up like hell, but for deepstacked i am tightish, i do play hands thou but must be middle/late posiiton and sometimes looking for spots against good/experiences players cos they know to fold and know how to read betsizes.
Posted by noonlion: What stakes you play? must be mid stakes no?
Mostly just micro, SNG upto $10 with sometimes upto $100, MTT upto $5 with sometimes upto $50 if its deepstacked but mostly micro cos i luv donks so much.

You said it all in the end doomdy, the real trick, what makes you better than the majority, what puts you above the general, “i have just uber patience”. This is one of the values I respect the most in a person, in the tables or in any other situation. If we want to reach an objective, we have to be patient, almost nothing happens from night to day, except sunrise. When someone tells another “keep up the good work” after a good result, that is what it really means, the work has to be continued, so that good results can keep appearing. Btw, congratulations on your results, it makes me think about some advices I write around here. I’m usually careful when writing advices, and I will keep it this way, because I know that, among many first timers, there are experienced players that may also read my comments and surely have their own opinion about it, which can be constructive.
Patience is very important, but a player needs more than that to be a winning player and you know it. The mathematical part of poker is very important, and being able to read people too. You have to be good post flop to win in hold'em, even if its SnG or MTTs you can't just be patient ^^ The instinct, the timing or whatever you call it only comes with experience. Sometimes we "have" to make irrational plays, very tight folds or very loose moves, and we can only rely on our guts.
But I agree though, patience is the basis of any good poker player

Posted by sadamman: Just a casual 40K yeah?........ .........Motherfucker . Will you be my coach for free?
Yeah! That's nice isn't it from poker. I have to work for a whole year to make 50K so I'm sticking to the micros until I make my first K. If or when I make a K in poker I will consider playing at higher levels. Doomdy, did you actually make that much playinng poker? I mean, you stated you love the micros due to the donks. It just seems like it would take quite some time to make that type of a BR playing at that level. If so, I'm very impressed. Took me 10 years to bank that much working at a farely decnt job!
