After a few unsuccesful attempts in the last 2 months or so at attempting to build a bankroll again, this is the 3rd attempt. Recently put $40 into Ladbrokes and got it up to $230 but since It was such a small investment, I proceeded to donk it back off whilst playing underolled...
Im going to put $200 into Trident poker, who are a prima skin and match 100% up to $200 for 10x raked hands, so 2000 hands should be easily accomplishable in a couple weeks.
This should then give me $400.
From there I will go onto Eurolinx poker, and deposit $250 with a match of 100% upto $250, on succesful clearance of this bonus, I should have $650.
From there, i will go to Bigchip poker, which is an absolute skin, they offer 100% up to $300, and will deposit the full $300. Once ive cleared this bonus, I should have hit $1000.
I am not starting this bonus whoring just yet, but would like opinions/advice on any of the following skins I have mentioned.
If you have played there then please contribute your opinions. Im avoiding the bigger sites for now until I get a few bonus' out of the way, I tend to find tied down by bigger sites, so am going to whore myself a bankroll first.
This will start on Friday 22nd December.

full tilt offers 100% up to $600 if you get to that point. you could also refer some friends for a bit extra. on an aside, if this is not purely about poker but somewhat about investing, there are some online stock brokerages that offer you 100% after one trade and after they take their fees you pocket a nice percentage-wise profit. there are methods for many levels that you could research should be inclined to do so.

Started this earlier and have played 191 raked hands as of this point and am up $17. I deposited $240, and have just finished playing on $257.
Seems ok for Prima, I do like their sites and find them very quick to play on with lots of donks... Im keen to build a bankroll worthy of playing some proper limit games though,like $1/$2 I used to love it when I was rolled forthat...

Up to $280 now, but ive had $25 of the bonus realeased, another $175 to go for 1750 hands. Actually playing wise im only $15 or so up, but this is still ok considering im bonus whoring.

Down to $235, with another $25 or so pending release from my bonus.
I need to stay out of fancy hands. Imagine being sat with $37 at the table and somehow losing all of that, all of that profit ive worked up for the last hour and a half...
After 500 hands I should of been at $290... ill be lucky im if at $250...
LESS FANCY PLAYS.
I want to leave this site after 2000 raked hands feeling good about my poker playing. I currently have 2000 hands logged on my new database on poker office and boy do i need to tighten up more. Would anyone care to give a good VPIP to aim for playing 6 max NL??

I'm off 6-max till I can move up in levels. But when I did play, I tended toward SLAG play, VP$P around 23-27%, with PFR at around 14-16%.
Was profitable for a while, averaging 20-30 BB/100, but made a lot of bad calls and donked off the profit I had accumulated over four weeks in two bad sessions.
Been 4 tabling full ring for the past few weeks, and have built it back up. May mix in some six max, but I have taken a liking to full ring for multi-tabling.If you are one in a million, there's eight just like you in Manhattan.
