    $0 to $800 in 4 days (Mix of blackjack and poker)

    So I started out at $0 in my 888 account on Monday. I had gotten some grades back and was feeling a bit down over one of them (first year university) so I decided to hit up some FastFold Freerolls that 888 is doing through april and may to promote their "Snap Poker". I won a couple of dollars, and grinded them to the "Iron"Reward status that allowed me access to 4 $100 GTD freerolls per day.

    I made it in 1st for 23$ in the $100 GTD, and worked that up to 125$ with a mix of blackjack and poker. Needless to say, I lost all 125$ by the end of monday. Fuck if I was going to end it there. No, I was at $0, but it wasn't over. I still had 2 tickets left to the $5000 freerolls for Fastfold poker.

    I proceeded to win 2$. I got lucky at blackjack and worked that to 50. From there, I played 2 tournaments and placed 10th and 9th for another 50$ in prize money. I played some 0.05/0.10c NLH, and some 0.12/0.25c NLH, and worked the 100$ up to 150$ or so. I then mixed playing, with blackjack and got that up to about 360$ over the course of tuesday and wednesday. Last night I worked that up to 430 with blackjack, and this morning I played some cash games and blackjack and got that to $785. I've had an extreme lucky streak at blackjack, winning maybe 400$ of the 785 (probably closer to 500) but my play method and betting plan has been fairly solid. betting 5-25$ at a time at most, going out if I'm down 50, stopping if I'm up by about 35-60.

    But now I'm at $800. I'm thinking about stopping blackjack and switching solely to poker. Not sure. In any case, I'm withdrawing ~$600 of it and leaving 200 to play with

    And that's my story of hitting 800 bucks from 0.

    Does anyone have any tips or advice for where I should be going from here? SHOULD I quit blackjack if it's been such a nice supplement on the side, or just be EXTREMELY cautious with my blackjack playing? What Stakes/tournaments/SNG's should I be playing from here on out? I've never had more than 20-50$ to play with in the past, so I'm a little overwhelmed right now.

    What a great run! I turned about 2 bucks into about 80 yesterday playing 1 dollar s and gs. Eventually lost all the money and then deposited another 50 that I tilted away. Its funny how sometimes I will play great poker for hours and hours and hours but then lose all the bank roll building in minutes.

    The next step is your whole roll on a 10 team parlay.

    I'm making a ledger in an attempt to stop that from happening. As well, I'm going to try to adhere fairly strictly to some good BR management.

    This is my Bankroll from now on, so I REALLY would rather not lose it :P I HATE depositing on sites, I prefer freerolls, and what are the odds of me working up to $800 from freerolls again? I'm livin' the DREAM.
