    I'm starting out with $800 bankroll, how long will it take to reach 8,000?

    Do you think it's possible and if so how long would it take?

    It's not hopeless but probability wise?

    If you set your unit size small, as you should with that amount, it'll take a great run over time and on the other side of the coin, you set the units too large ($100) then a cold streak of a few days, which WILL happen will eat you up.

    Good luck though...I'm a big believer in the saying "never limit your challenges, challenge your limits" and this is a good challenge indeed if you go after it.

    You sound like someone who cannot do better than flipping a coin, so if you really want to get to $8000 you'd have to max bet each time and go about 4/4 which you have at best a 6.25% chance of doing.

    Great work.

    Dunno why people act so down on you man as if it's some impossible feat. Why all te hate? Really dislike seeing others succeed that much?

    Great work again make sure you pull some out. I'd hate to see one of those "had 8400 in my account two days ago now I've got $200" threads out of you man!

    I didn't parlay but hope nobody saw that pic as I left the account number in there. I'm trying to change the password just in case but there is no option and the customer reps are not on.

    Cash out at least half before you log another bet. I could see you doubling down if a bet loses.

    I would just make sure that two posters are not on the same play as you. Everyone knows one and the other is as deadly. Living the Dream. Guy has picked an incredible number of late inning losers. Just looking out for you.

    LordVodka,

    Congrats bro. The reason for the negativity is because well, most people on here are naturally pessimistic. But, also you did come across as kinda snobby. Happy for you. I turned 500 into 3900 on BI recently, so it's a really great feeling!

    I dont think its as much negative/pessimistic as it is being realistic about expectations.

    Then again how many times do we see guys on here who go 0 for 8 on wagers...but then hit once on a 4x bet and claim profit....or the perpetual loser who hits one parlay and then ups hit unit amount by 10x due to the windfall and goes bust within a week?

    Pretty much it's not about how much you win or how fast....but how long you can maintain it without having to redeposit which by definition means unless it's your first time sending in money....you've lost more than what you currently won.

    You didn't mention how long it took you...?

    To increase the BR 10x, it usually takes me about a year.
