On my poker ace $10 ndb I've been playing the $1 farming challenge tourneys sparsely. Its really easy i got my BR up to $60. But werent getting many player points for it, and you need 100 player points to withdraw. I was getting a bit bored and frustrated with the $1 tourneys and thought f**k it, if im ever gonna withdraw this is to be treated as play money. So tonight i went on the 0.1/0.25c tables for max buy in $25. There was some guy there with $140. I battled for a bit until i was about $50, then took someone who bought in out, so was on about $80. Kept going owning this ultra aggro table, until i was about $113. Then it was just me and the other guy who had about $130 now. He was beating me at 1st with his aggression, took about $7 off me. Then i hit the nut flush, trapped him, on the river re raised him all in, he called on god knows what and I'm now like $213 and 79 player points better off on poker ace.

It was risky but it definately paid off, i give you that Big Smile

I guess now you should stop a bit and play at a lower limit in order to hit 100 so you could cashout Blink

great run sadam -you're the man Worship
now when you do try to cashout update us on how it went. there are lots of issues with the site that makes one want to stay away from it, so news on actually getting money from it would be more than welcome.

Great result bud!
i play on the nl25 table there, it really is soft. who was your opponent? If it was sutek123 he has built his $10 to over $800 Shock if it was cgj1969(or something like that) he is always on and always seems to lose but always comes back with more money Confused crazy!
you should just keep your money on there and make as much as you can Thumbs Up

Good luck and congrats again Thumbs Up

Wow, thats a really nice result indeed, grats to you, very well done.
But now, as you are so close to your goal, remeber of BRM and don´t gable it all away.
Atleast cash out the half of the bankroll and you have a nice winning and still a roll to play with.

Yeah guys not really sure what to do now, whether to now try to manage it, or go crazy and try to get it to 1k. I have $225 and enough points to withdraw now, think im gonna gamble another $25 on the 0.1/0.25 tables and then withdraw half of my roll if it doesnt go well.

That was a nice run and an example what can happen if you are lucky.
But how many times can this happen in a row? Smile
On the opposite direction losing strike can be crazy.

Now with the points you got i believe you are closer to your goal of cashing out.
gl and get even more money by that time.

Having run my £25 into £1400 in under 3 weeks and probably around 5-8k hands I can say Pokerace is GREAT when the games are running. Sadly its hard to get action above NL50 but essentially 1k of my profits have come from 2 players playing HU NL100/200 and both of them play almost the exact same terrible overLAG style and will bet-bet-jam J3o but fold to ANY bet or raise you make.. pretty interesting and very exploitable.

You literally just scan the lobby for certain names and join tables they are at and wait for them to donate.. not even joking. Had a guy stack off $150~ pre with 93o vs my AKs (he won obv) BvB purely because I minraised his open he just insta jammed. Total spazzfest.

Just advice to anyone playing Pokerace; as there is no HUD or note system I started taking my own notes on notepad about peoples tendencies; primarily if they are fishy or solid but specifically notes on weird played hands; like one of the regs on there who 3bets his button like 80% and squeezes in big blind like 40% and folds to 4bets like 90% of the time.. little notes like that are super handy to have. Likewise when you have notes on 5/5/2 nits who are playing AA,KK,QQ,AKo+ and waiting for an unobservant moron to stack off. That's the thing with Pokerace you can sit watching a movie waiting for aces and kings and set mining and still get action even though you have been crazy nitty people just aren't paying attention.

Anybody gonna share some screen names so we can look out for each other?

Cool

hahaha very nice one bro turning your ndb to more than 200$ Smile The only bad thing about pokerace is that there's never more than 150 players on the site at it's max appointment time... Well I hope you now got your 100 points or getting close to it so you can play it safe and finally cash out a bit. I would keep 50$ to try to make it into 1000 but that's up to you Smile

Good job!

Risks do pay off sometimes, just like playing aggro is a risk ^^

Good job but don't get too crazy, you can lose it as fast as you won it if you don't start managing your bankroll properly now! Going from 10 to 200-300$ is not that hard, but then to keep growing your bankroll on the long run you need tons of discipline.
