Over the last few months I have been playing on Mansion Poker For Badbeat on $50 per day.. I am used to playing $1/$2 cash and $10 STT's so found there rules saying i had to play $5 STT's and 10c/25c cash a right pain in the buttski.. It took me ages to build a bankroll so I could play at a decent level and they sent me back down to prove I have a decent game before they give me a Bankroll..

Well after three months of continous outdraws from players with no respect for the basics of the game my bankroll was a miserable $120 loss. SO I used my daily $50 bankroll as I felt it could best be utilised..
I played super tight cash tables 15c25c until i hit $80 which fortunately was only 45 minutes after sitting. Then decided to go for the $1/$2 cash games I am familiar with.. Three hours later my $120 deficit had climbed to a very decent $457 in clear profit.. YES i made $477 + change in three hours..
As a result of this I am now leading this months Badbeat GUKPT Leaderboard and looking favourite to win a seat to next months GUKPT main Event in Newcastle..

Because of my consistant performance on Badbeat, they are now prepared to offer me a $200 bankroll per day.. Happy days I hear you say..
This is my dilemna..
IF i take the $200 Bankroll my percentage of profits in relation to my bankroll will drop from 58% to only 12 which will effectively end any hopes of me getting the seat to the GUKPT Main event.
If i stay on a $50 Bankroll and play as I am I have a good chance of the seat but will be wasting valuable time playing with a decent Bankroll..

Which do you think is the best option?
Stay on $50 and hope nobody pips me to the seat
Take the $200 and build it up for a decent payday

Personally Sax I would head of to Geordie land.
There is no guarantee you will have the chance again nor is there any guarantee the GUKPT will live forever.

However you know you can mix it with the better players online at your cash limits so will continue to be able to do so.

Have a stab at the BIG big boys in Newcastle and personally BadBeat should be telling you the same.
