5 Alive

Since my downswing began last month it peaked at around 60 Bis down. That pretty much equals my worst ever swing in terms of Buy-Ins. The last time was at higher limits and a lot of $$$$.

The bad run has resulted in the unlikely situation of me not being rolled for NL50 and having to drop down to NL25. Now, in actual terms I can easily deposit and be back up at NL50 or NL100 but I am stubborn and want to work it back up.

I am only a few days away from a $1,600 bonus which will boost me straight back up to NL50 so I am enjoying NL25 and noticing a marked difference in the game quality. NL25 is a lot easier to beat than NL50. Reading forum posts lead me to believe the gap in player quality was a lot narrower but what I have seen over a few days leads me to the conclusion that it is wider than many people think.

I played 5 sessions today, winning all of them. The players were splashing the cash around. A few more days like this and I will wipe out my downswing completely:



On Saturday I intend on winning a poker tournament when the Stars VIP freeroll kicks off. I could certainly do with bagging a 6-figure payday..!!

  2. I normally make sure that I am well rolled and have over $4k in my account, that's 80 BIs for NL50. With withdrawals and downswing I dipped below $1k so have now dropped to NL25 until I get my Bonus.

  4. Hay Rosh, i play 50NL how many hands would I have to put in do you think to get the nice bigger FPP bonusses, such as that nice 1200 bucks you get, only manage around 90k hands monthly while im 9-12 tabling, but been playing PT most the year so fluctuates a lot, tried the 24 tabling,..tough work so dropped tables.. if i do 150k hands a month on average would that do the trick?

    1. I get around 0.13 VPPs per hand at NL50. U need 100,000 FPPs to get the $1,600 bonus.

      At supernova 100,000/3.5 = 28,571 VPPs
      28,571/0.13 = 219,780 hands in a month to get a $1,600 bonus

      Play higher if you can put in that volume mate
