Default OT: Pokerstars & Me

Little background, few weeks ago I deposited $600 to clear the $600 bonus on Full Tilt. I ran it up to $5k and ran it down just as quickly.

Over that time I think I've acessed my game...
Anyways, I had to check to see if I have enough FPP to create that tournament, I don't, but I have $300+ on there

It's always nice to find money after swinging up and down

I found $25 at UB a few weeks ago, and since then I've built it up to $500.

How was clearing the bonus at FT? What buy-in did you play? How many tables? How long did it take? 6-max?

It took forever. I played nl100-600 4-tabling at all times. I can't tell you how many hands or what rate it clears at, but its worth doing.

Did you sign up with rakeback at FT as well while clearing the bonus?

Cool. I am already signed up at FT with RB and trying to get through the 600. Been playing 200nl and it doesnt clear as fast as I would like. Too bad they dotn allow for more tables than 4.

I have this problem too. I guess I should have analyzed how long it really would have taken.

If you guys who are still trying to clear the bonus need some help doing so, I've found it helpful to have a 5-10 limit table open and just play an ultra-rock style. These tables certainly clear the bonus faster.

I am up $3K in two weeks, though ($800 cash, $2200 from a tournament win that I just decided to play on a whim). The cash games are somewhat tough, but these tournament players learned WAY too much from the WPT and seeing FTP ads on TV.
