Having said that I did win about 5 dollars in a freeroll at Gutshot Poker last year (7 card stud!!) and bring it up to $44 at microlimits before getting bored.
I'm impressed with Crippler's achievement. What levels are you playing with your $193, Crippler?
It took a long time to get to the $193, which is now up to $265. I got it by playing on Royal Vegas
and have never deposited any money. I did it the long, hard way... on the $.10/$.20 tables which are the smallest ones that I could find where I get raked hands regularly. I usually bring a very small amount to a table and 2/3 of the time i'll go all in on a good hand and lose, but once in a while i'll triple or quadruple up, and keep playing on that money until I win a few more times, then move to another table. So a lot of times it goes like this:
Bring-in $2.50, lose 2.50. Bring another 2.50, lose 2.50. Bring in another $2.50, win $11 or $12 and then go to another table.
This usually worked for me unless I went on a horrible streak. And $18 of my money came from sitting at a table where someone won the bad-beat jackpot (He got 250, winner of the hand got 125, all the rest of us at the table split another 125). His four 6's got beat by a straight flush!
