This is a discussion on When and Where was your FIRST deposit ??? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Deposits & Withdrawals section; I had deposited for the first time of my life at FullTilt Poker, before Black Friday. :coffee:
It was the first time I played online poker
I am recreational player, so relying mainly on freeroll winnings, and building a bankroll from time to time.
In the past, when I was eligible to play at Full Tilt - I transferred money a lot between my PS and FT accounts. Winning more on FT, and transferring to PS to play
Three or four months ago, I deposited 15 bucks won from CC special Freeroll at PS (cause such winnings I could receive only at my skrill account). Managed to increase the BR to more then 40 bucks, playing mainly mtt's and spin&go's. And everything went pretty promising and stable, until one Monday and Tuesday when I lost all of it
So it is ups and downs for me, so far - do not want to take seriously my poker journey for now ... That is why I will still not invest money, beside freeroll winnings (hoping they will be still available) to rely on
My first deposit of $ 5 was placed on Pokerstars, I played cash games at the limits of 0.01-0.02. Two days later I had $ 20, tried to make a withdrawal $ 10, I was denied due to the fact that it was not 48 hours after replenishment of the account. I decided to play more, and then my black band went, lost with any cards, even with two aces, I think that here everything is not clean. In a day I already had $ 0. AT
oh man, that's a long story, well before black friday.
I deposited using neteller when they start accepting payment and money transfer from ft, bodog, ultimate bet, ps, etc... then made 50-60$ or such deposit then everything else is profit, never deposited after that with my "own hard earned money", only what I had in neteller from the poker rooms and winning.
not bad for online recreational player,
I am doing much better in the live games, have better read on the people
My first deposit was at pokerstars about 5 -6 years ago .I used to go at casino or poker rooms and i decided to play my 1st online game .It was a good offer i deposit 20 and i had 40 with some free spins .
My first deposit was on the pokerstar platform .... several years ago I entered playing tournaments with dummy chips ... and I liked the game so much that I made my first deposit and started playing sit & go tournaments for $ 0.10
I did my first deposit last week, and I got some tickets as well.
And I lost everything yesterday heheh its the game! no regrets at all!!!
Good experience to balance and control your bankroll...I went to the bank and
paid personal...second deposit is coming...
My first deposit came after my first withdrawal, I won £13 in a freeroll in August this year on Grosvenor, just after discovering online real money poker for the first time. From that I made a deposit on 888, won enough to withdraw again and put that on Pokerstars. 2 months later and still haven't made a deposit using my own money, and still have a little bankroll
I have not made my first deposit yet, because I do not want to lose everything. That's why I practice a lot to see where I'm wrong so I can not repeat my mistakes. But the deposit will be by the poker star
