GL with that, how much are you starting with? I played a few myself, its a diffrent game of poker(1+2$), you tend to get 1 player who goes all or nothing, and the rest tend to fold to any bets, if they call your beat :}.
Iv been trying to up my MTT game there on the 360 .10, (intend to start playing mtts and tourns) So far im ITM 18/24 :} most being final table, lets hope i can do it when playing good players.

Hey guys, sorry no updates, been busy with family, presents and turkey lol.
I've deposited $600 for 25% reload bonus and have a pending bonus of $150 to work off. I need 3000 VPP points to unlock the pending bonus. I've decided to wait until Jan.1st to start since I would like to reach Silverstar VIP status, hopefully I can make it with 1500 VPP points in January.
doomdy, thanks, I'll keep you guys updated.
B1gfoot, GL with MTTs, some reason I do bad in them.
Calmplay, thanks Update hopefully Jan.1st.
shokaku, you're right. 3000 VPPs is bad goal because I can accomplish it but have poor results, so ill change my goal to 3000VPP or FPP points with roi 10% +, I'm hoping for.
jessicaiskin, thanks. I had 20% roi on ipoker network, hopefully competition is similar on Pokerstars.

Update: Figured I'd try $5.20 games to test them out first. I found antes are high so it's worth it to steal blinds more often. Anyway, I played 24 of them today. First 10, I got the worst bad beats ever lol. I didn't play many hands and I seemed to lose every hand I played whether it was a coin flip or they got runner runner straight/flush. So I only won 2 out first 10 sngs.
I went for a break and I got very lucky in the second session. Not so much in one hand but I won crucial pots when it counted. I won 9 sngs in a row. I than felt like I can win in this game and perhaps more up to $10.40 tomorrow.
So 12/24 for today. Hours Played: 3 Bankroll: $595.20 FPP points: 24 of 3000
P.S. I'll try to do a video tomorrow. And here's one hand from today, one of the bad beats I got.
That hand you posted was indeed a sick bad beat, but you know and i know, that if that player called your pre flop raise with his AJ, then he hit the best flop possible in his eyes. And you hit that flop and especially the turn as good as you could, so that's just a imposable hand to get away from....
check my one out... My opponent was just a donk, but then there are tons of them out there

well, unfortunately I can't open the hand you posted, but no matter, I wish you luck for this challenge, you'll need it to not be break even, just joking, next session's gonna be better, too much donks out there to not beat them so often as you want hope we hear some updates soon, gl with silverstar too btw
