You will definitely see a difference, and the higher the stakes, the bette rthe game. If you had say $200 then I would play anything up to about $3 in MTTs. The BIG $2.20 is a good game to play. Tight play is the way to go, and 3-4 double ups will see you get iTM quite easily.

Freerolls are a waste of time if you ask me.

The freerolls in PS is filled with donks , ITM is very hard to achieve !!!
But i would say freerolls on ipoker network are easier to crack when compared to PS !!

The style of play certainly increases with higher the stakes you play ..
but you find donks at all levels !!
Its better you play ring games or mtts or sng 's of medium buyin's which you are comfortable to play.

Good luck at the tables Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Unless its a freeroll with a good prize i doubt you will come up often to the same
game style with buy in tournaments. Start at low buy ins to get the feeling and gl.

$200 is a decent roll imo- you will be well rolled for cash games/sng's/mtt's - just pick whatever you like and off to the circus Big Smile what room to choose depends on what games are you planning to play- if less popular ones, then stars is probably a must, since in other sites you will have to wait for opponents for some time...if you go for mainstream poker- then any poker site which is reputable will do.

I'd have to agree that the $2.20+ bracket seems to have less of what we consider donks. I like the $2.20 SnG (27 to 45 players). If you do attempt these just play tight and patient until the blinds get up to at least the 100 / 50 level. At least that works best for me and a lot of the loose cannons are out of the way. Just my personal opinion though! Good Luck at whatever you choose!

G'day mate,
I just read your post about the 2.20 S n G's and I think i will try a few of them myself.
I just put a $100 USD deposit into my stars account so they fall within my Bankroll management limit of no more then 5% spent at any one time on a single MTT.
I do hope the card Gods are kind Smile

Be cool and good luck at the tables.

Ronin Harper Cool

Brian...you really need to have a look around at what the differnt sites are offering by way of sign up or deposit promos. Dont forget there are loads of promos here on BRM that give free no deposit bonuses and then on some sites when you do deposit you get poads of freebies as well.

I won a ticket on the BRM Calendar this month for a PKR freeroll...I didnt have an account there so I went and signed up using the BRM bonus link. A lovely surprise my first bonus was in within a day and when i made a littole deposit I received a lovely bundle of goodies too from PKR, so overall a really good experience for me.

There of course loads of sites to choose from so have a look around and read the reviews on BRM Reviews too.

Whatever you do, manage your bankroll carefully using the 10% rule (dont buy in any game for more than 10% of your bankroll). Obviously the higher the stakes, the better the win, but the more you will lose and also the competition becomes 'better' so you will have to work harder!

Good Luck.

Off course, there is a big different. A good way to test it was a little challenge to build a bankroll with freerolls. On this way you can test the playing style in the micros and the different kind of games.
