Titan throws me $20 every once in a while if I haven't played there in a while, and a week ago or so they did again.

I decided to do a little experiment (kind of what jimbo did), and play where I could buy in for the max until I doubled up or busted. I've brought it up to $50 at the 20NL tables, and now I'm going to go hit up 50NL.

I don't think I can withdraw the bonus money (without depositing there via a different method than neteller), so I'm probably just going to do this until I either lose it all, or make enough that I decide to investigate into withdrawls.

How far you think I'll make it? 100NL? 200NL? busto?

Place yer bets! :/

You Will Not BUSTO!!

I am gonna say you will be investigating the withdrawl options. I have a good feeling that you will run this up to $2,000.

And if you don't, everone will laugh at me, hell they probably already are. :D

I would guess you can get it up to $150-$200 and then naturally a bad beat will rear it's ugly head.

Good Luck though, I hope to hear that you are searching for the withdrawl options.

I particularly like the UTG+1 min raise with JJ after you've limped in. Some sort of pot building move?


Go, go, go Chuck.

Ya, NL, the tables at Titan are juicier than you would believe.

I ran into about a half-dozen absolute maniacs in my session today. Open pushes for ~$20 preflop with crap, minraises with monsters, calling down to the river with ace high...lovely stuff :)

I never heard how far Jimbo and Shine got in their competition on the weekend?

Shine took a string of bad beats on the $10 tables and I got up to about $50 on the $25NL tables and we called it quits. Went a lot slower than it should of :D

I think you'll get to $500, realise it's quite a lot of money, withdraw it and spend it on furniture.

You will up it to approximately $250, then decide to play a $300K+ GTD tourney, where you will take the first place and win a huge amount of money. You decide to cash the money and will spend it all on beer and women in one night (-EV!).

You can play raked hands to clear it - now you've got $100 you've probably got a shot at turning it into cash if you want.

I've been given $25 bonus - I was going to H2H it and try and double up twice, but i'll do what you are doing.
