    I officially made my first $100 without making a deposit at World Poker Exchange (although I did make 1 sports bet on WSEX in attempt to support their rake free poker...bet $10 to win $14.00 (-140)).

    Ive been playing for about 2 months averaging about an hour a day....never really took a freeroll at the beginning but just placed high many times to get my first $10 then worked at limit tables for dimes, NL $10 tables and $2 SNGs. I now plan on doing more $5 + 1, $250 guarantees.

    Rock how are you doing on Bodog now? I guess if you're keeping up you must have cashed out a few times.

    I'm currently in the 40k guaranteed about to cash. After 1.5 months on bodog my net winnings are $4800 - 1500 in cashouts and 3300 on there now. I was all over the tournament leader board last month and this, and thursday night I won the 6k guarantee $20 rebuy for $1800. I've been busy. Thats why its been hard to keep up with my posting. will continue cash game soon and congrats prolifical on your milestone. keep building and growing that stack.

    Id play bodog if I could, Canadians are restricted form that site. Freerolls can give you a wad if you can take it.

    On WPX it is very easy to get a few cents from the freerolls since there is less people in them but only $50 total. If you play in about a dozen freerolls you can easily scratch up a few dollars to get started.

    Id avoid PS too.

    hmmm thanks for the information guys, I'll prolly just play all of em at random, since they all have different freeroll times, I don't gotta sit and wait 4 hours for the next freeroll after I get knocked out on an early all in or something, or when I come home I can sign onto all of em and just look for the quickest starting freeroll... Even if they aren't good to make money people actually play seriously unlike play money so it's good practice IMO

    i started on bodog with nothing. the freerolls payout huge ($120-$240) for 1st depending on the tournament. problem is they only run at 3 times 4am, 240pm, and 1040pm est. there is also a 30 pts freeroll at 915pm which you can play once as they start you with 50pts. absolute is a complete waste of time. I can tell you at least half a dozen times where they have screwed me or just done something underhanded. If you believe that a doom switch doesnt exist, try withdrawing money and see how the cards treat you afterward. crooked.

    if you can some general heads up tips/strategies would be helpful.

    in the last two games ive played in the last week i managed to surrender chip dominance and eventually lose heads up, and then bomb up in the most recent game playing far to erratically. i think im a bit rusty since i havent played for a while, time to start taking the games more seriously i think.

    props on keeping the thread going rock.

    no problem.

    Heads up is a different animal from 10-9 handed poker. For the most part, when you get to heads up in a mtt tourny, the blinds will be huge and there will be little room to play. Therefore the two defining factors toward winning will be luck and aggression. While you can't control luck, you can take control of the action by raising as much as possible. Any ace and any pair is good enough to push all in preflop. The odds of both players having a pair heads up is a little worse than 300-1 so dont be afraid to call an all in with any pair. In the small blind, you have the odds to call with any hand so broaden your hand selection considerably. When your opponent is on the shortstack, fire relentlessly and force them into a decision for all their chips, and don't be ashamed to bust someone with a weaker hand. I routinely call all-ins with hands like k7 q9 as these hands are not likely to be a considerable underdog (60-40% or so against an ace). Don't be afraid to lose and don't play tight. You simply don't have the time to wait for a monster. REMEMBER: In heads up chances are both players have nothing. To the aggressor go the spoils.

    and if you are looking for a barometer to decide whether to go all in here is mine

    flop- any ace , any pair , any two high connectors

    post flop- middle pair or better

    Listen, playing this way is absolutely not foolproof, but you give yourself the best chance to win. If the heads up situation is one where you have lots of chips and lots of blinds, you still want to be aggressive but you can scale back on the all ins. Steal relentlessly.
