I was curious to see if anyone else took adantage of that offer. I don't know if it is still running or not, but I wanted to know how well those of you who did fared with it.
I may not ever have to make a deposit a PS because I have turned that $5 into currently $143. My ROI is at 265% right now, so you can see I have had my ups and downs with it. bluffmagazine.com shows that in 10 tourneys I have cashed in 5 so I sit at 50% in total cashes. I know that is a very small ammount played so don't think I'm bragging yet. I will continue to post and let you know what I can get the free $5 up to! Tell me what you think, or tell me your own promotional success story. My goal is to build that $5 to $1,000 :cool: so we shall see...

Oh, and by the way if my account gets larger and I decide to cash a little out do I have to make a deposit first? :confused:

you have done well my friend, keep it up...good discipline required.
I read about depositing min $50 on any site you play. I think the freeroll money isnt real real withdraw cash until you have turned over heaps of rake points. If you deposit first, its a different story. Maybe you can donk the money off to a friend who has deposited $50 in heads up game or similar. If friend can be trusted that is:D :D
If he has deposited $50 and plays you, his winnings are instant cash, you just lose the rake, but that would be better than turning your balance over and over to try wash it clean....food for thought

Well im pretty sure all you have to do is down the road sometime is deposit the minimum deposit and then earn x amount of "user points" before you are allowed to withdraw. I've gone from 10$ bonus gift to 150$ in about a week...like you am hoping to get it up to 1k so i can play 1$/2$...highly doubt i would play higher stakes than that.

I have been winning my money from $2-3 tourneys and SNG's. Started with $1 SNG's and have slowly worked up to playing $5 SNG's and thinking about starting some $10 tourneys, but I don't want to deplete my bankroll, so I will stay with what is working for now until I build my bank roll to over $250. I will post later on to update my status! Once again I currently sit at $155 in my quest for a grand! :cool:

Ok, so I didn't post yesterday or today until now, because I was having a rough go at the tables! But, we all know the patience is a virtue in poker, I knew my terrible bad beats wouldn't last long. After losing my butt on about five $5 SNG's, I decided to play a $10 SNG which I placed one out of the money in!!! Doesn't that crap piss you off? I think we have all played in a tourney or SNG and been the one. Well, it is very early in the morning for me and i've

the post above is supposed to state that I was on a streak of bad luck, but I played in a $10 SNG and won $45 for first place, and put me back on track and in the right direction with $163! It's only an $8 increase, but at least I got a lil closer to my goal :D
anyways I'm tired and I didn't mean to post that thread, I tried to revise it three times and it won't show up, so I have no more wit or humor left in me this morning! My goal for $1k draws a lil nearer. Post back and thanks for your comments. I'm pretty sure if I can pull this off, it is going to be a first.... or so you would think :rolleyes:
