..I checked a seldom-used email account today, and had a message from PokerTime saying I had $1.01 in my account that was due to expire from my account being dormant.

I played 4 micro limit SnG's, won 3 of them and had $2. Then i switched to cash tables, playing .01/.02NL for a bit, then moving up to .05/.10NL and now have a $15 bankroll to tinker with. This is awesome, seeing as i was going to make a deposit elsewhere later this week. We`ll see if this keeps up, maybe i will save some of my hard earned money, and make some more.

Great news Btownd87! Earlier this week i decided to login into a room that i thought that i had no money there and found it with $0.30, i guess it was because of its rakeback campaign, being very good and rewarding every type of games, made me won this bit passed a month. Lets see if i can turn it into some more just like you did Blink

Its a good thing that you got the email before they took your money.
I got an email in the past cant remember the site, informing me that they took the fee out of the account cause it was dormant and if i dont do anything they will get another one next month lol.
Anyways gl with your games there

*SPOILER ALERT* lol busto. I had trip 3's off the flop and bet $7 into a $15 pot, got re-raised all-in and then got disconnected, and folded. Lost that hand, and lost my patience. Busto.

So tomorrow I'll be making my first deposit on Mansion Poker (been with them 2.5 years and never really played). I'm going to drop $75 down and see if I can get my bankroll up to $200 by the end of the weekend. I'll be using my short-stack strategy for cash tables, and simple bankroll-management will prevail. Maybe I'll do the whole 'Poker Blog' thing and track my progress. Look for the thread in the next few days, because I'll be playing to win.

No more Mr. Nice-Canadian-Guy

Dont play in tables with no disconnection protection.
It can happen only a couple of times but you can lose a sure hand and a good amount of money by a reraise from someone with crap probably like it happened to you.
Its a lesson well learned for myself too. (been there done that Smile)

DOesn't make sense..

If you had $15 and raised $7 then got disconnected and folded, you'd have $8 left, and if you folded then how did you lose the hand.

I am smelling a rat here..

Ummm... he didn't say he was bust as a direct result of losing all his money in a disconnected pot.. He said he bet $7 into a $15 pot and then get re-raised allin and was unable to call due to a disconnection and auto-folded. But THEN he lost his patience > busto. Implying he tilted after the disconnected pot and spazzed off the last $XX.

That´s what it sounds like. Smile
Lost half, and then "Tilted" the rest away.

Never though I would Tilt much, but lately.... I guess it happens to everyone.
Looking to install a huge RED emergency "button/switch" to hit when I feel the "Tilt" coming on.
Shuts down my PC for 1 hour minimum. Thumbs Up

...maybe I can market the thing once it´s all set up? Big Smile
