What to do with $3k on Pokerstars  0   
Tonight I won over $3k in HU matches on Pokerstars, and now I am not sure what to do with it.

My dream is to get to Supernova on there so logic says start playing some ring games to get points and try move up the rankings however part of me says stick to what I do best which is HU games. Since I've been playing them I've gone from over $3k in losses to over $500 in profit and thats in little more than about 2 weeks really.

I could withdraw some and wham it onto a new site and try to clear bonuses but I kind of like PS and the deals for players are second to none.

What is your opinion ?

If you crush PLO like I do I would just play 0.50/1$ PLO. If you don't crush Hold'Em or PLO at this limits maybe you can cashout ALOT so you play 0.10/0.25 or 0.25/0.50 BRM?

Just make sure you have 25 buyins per limit and dont play to high because you will get crushed, i really recommend cashing out a huge amount.

Take out $2500, take gf out somewhere nice, or buy her something shiny. Shiny stuff/nice places = guaranteed nooky, and that's a +ev investment imho. It'll also end any of those "oh why do you waste time playing poker, it's an addiction and it'll ruin your life blah blah". I certainly shut my girlfriend up about poker the first time I bought her something with my winnings Smile

Also, practice proper BRM, or you'll be busto before you knew it. If HU is your poison, recommend at LEAST 50 buyins if you're a solid player, more if you're not. HU is pretty much one of the swingiest formats of poker, especially if you're playing OMAHA.

Ok now serious reply.

Your deffo not a poker player but fact a bingo player.
Imho stop player poker today and cashout all money left on your account, else you wud loose it in the future for sure.
You allways was a losing player (fact), now you won couple HU higher stakes with a sample less then 20 does not make a difference, your still the player that loses money with poker long run (no offend just a fact).
So cashout all and enjoy the money while you still can. Goodluck Thumbs Up

Send it to me, I have a very good idea what to do with it Big Smile Cool Blink
Honestly: cash our 2/3rd of it and play with the rest by using proper BRM.

This post is pretty much full of win Smile
Yeah IMO cash it all out unless you're prepared to lose it again (which is going to happen seeing you were losing player over the half-decent sample)

Nah,he's talking about HUSNGs.
For HU cash I'd agree with you,HU SNGs however is probably the game with the least swings possible in poker.
You could even go down as far as 20 BI BRM (if you're prepared to move up and down in stakes alot)

I don't understand why you are still playing poker if you are convinced it is rigged ?

Hi all.

I would play NL50 NL100 BSS or MSS being conservative with the bank or NL100 BSS risk, having in mind that if we go down to $ 2k you have to downgrade. If you want the SN Must you will play a lot in anyway.

Bes of luck in your attempt!

You will not achieve SuperNova because it takes alot of skills or a big bank account to do it.

I can laugh about OP 1st post but in fact ist really so sad, there are so many players starting like this.
First they loose then they run like god over a very short sample then they think wow if i play like this maybe i can be a ......

Then variance hits again in obviously cos they still losing players and boom roll gone.
Offcourse OP with bragging rights is very funny but also so sad cos so many players are like this.

No offend btw....

If you have an objective, which is to get to Supernova, I think you should stick to it, do everything you need to go there. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing what you do best. The best way to reach Supernova is playing ring because you play faster, the money runs in the table, and you win points faster. But if the best way for you to win money is by playing HU, you should continue playing it. This way you will prevent that your account gets to zero. You will play HU so you can have money to play ring so you reach Supernova. Choose wisely the levels you will play ring. Cant give you advices on this, once I only play $0.01/$0.02.

Really (no offend btw again), where you came up with the idea your good at HU SNG Confused
There is absolutely no proof on your scope your good at that Confused

Law of variancodynamics based on LNP -

winning 1500$ + playing 1000$ HU and losing = poker is rigged + whining rights

winning 1500$ + playing 1000$ HU and winning = OP HU beast + bragging rights

Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

as for ur question - pretty simple-->>> withdraw
