So I won a funstep 3 on Carbon tonight and earned me a dollar. Now I am not for sure what to do with it. I have a few options though.
I could play in the 6 cent tourneys that they have. It wouldn't cost me much at all to play in and I could keep playing them if I lose 1 or 2 in a row. The problem is that its really hard to make anything in them tourneys. In the last one that Carbon had 463 register and only the top 60 cashed, places 60-51 only made a 1 cent profit.
I could play in the Quarter Quickly tourneys. I would only have 3 chances to cash but there were only 104 that got in the last one. Only the top 10 made a profit though.
I could put it on the tables and try to double up. Even at the .2/.4 everybody has a bigger stack than a dollar so I would about have to go all in with above average hand pre-flop but it could be a quick way to get up to 2 dollars.
Or I could just wait and try to win another funstep 3 or cash in a CC freeroll. Start playing once I get a little more money on there.
Out of them options what would you do?

It's a tough decision. I would prob go for the 6 cent tourneys if I was gonna play from $1 although they sound like quite the grind. The CC freerolls give you your best chance at making a bankroll. I won one recently for $40.
I think it would be best to try to build up a little $$ (maybe $20) and have a right go at SNGs or tourneys to have the best chance of building it up.
Whatever you decide, GL.

The freerolls is a great idea. You really dont have enough to play the smallest games so you will lose it unless you run great for at least a week. It wouldn't hurt though to take a few shots at the 6c's while you are waiting to take a decent cash in the freerolls.

re: Poker & What would you do?
just play a dollar tourny. If you win you will get a decent start of a bankroll. If you lose, then just start over.
You are just gonna be paying more rake than what you are gonna gain playing the small games. You almost have to be perfect anyway to win another dollar.
So just go for it!

Ah I took my shot at a 60 cent sit and go turbo, was patient and waited for a good hand. I was in the BB with pocket Jacks, somebody raised my BB, one guy called and everyone folded. I pushed all in and both called. One guy had 10d 8d, the other guy had Ks 10s. King poped up on the flop. Talk about a bummer.
