    since poker star went belly up, i havent found any online poker until i saw the ads of global poker on facebook. i registered an account and deposited $5 on 5/8. (i won a seat to the world series of poker main event some 10 years ago from poker star, even though i didnt come back with money. back then, i also used a java code to simulate some 10 million games, to find "absolute winning probabilities" of each hand: http://texasholdem.expectable.net/texas-holdem-winning-percentage-ranking-all-hands-part-ii

    i play sit-n-go tournaments, starting from $1 games, then moved up to $3, then $6, $10 games. so far i played 1 $20 game and lost. atm, i play mostly $6 games.

    daily ending balances, excluding $50 withdrawn:
    7/16: $276
    7/17: $296
    7/18: $342

    each game average costs less than 1 hr. 1st-place net win for each game approximately:
    $50: $170
    $20: $70
    $10: $30
    $6: $20
    $3: $10
    $1: $3

    so if i win 5 $20-games or just 2 $50-games a day, i make 6 figure. atm, i am not comfortable with those games yet. i played $1 games for a month, $3 games for a month. that's how i got to my current stage.

    my strategy is to build on winning momentum. if i win, i move up, if i lose, i move down.

    a good thing about global poker is easy paypal withdraw.

    warning: dont try this at home if you are a hardcore gambler. i am talking about income from poker, not gambling. lol.

    Crossing the road is risky.

    Poker or investing in currency or anything, you only do with what you can afford to lose and should never start chasing losses once the luck turns against you.

    The Martingale system is a good reminder.

    This way is not to make money but how to start losing money when you earn.

    i AM serious. cant you see from my numbers?
    that's also what i like about tournaments - you can only lose the amount of money you put in as the entry. an example is the golf tournaments.

    this is poker, not gambling, though sometimes you take a risk.

    Rebuys and add-ons also count as entry fees. Impulsive players forget that.

    It depends if you received a bonus for depositing.For withdrawal, most casinos force you to play 3x, 4x up to 10x what you deposit.

    havent played much larger tournaments. i dont have the patience. when i do play, i never rebuy because i dont want to lose count of my 'investment.' i play 6-9-player sit-n-go.
