Play money is only to try out the software , test the buttons , playing the play money won't help your game besides not pressing the wrong button

thanks for the info .

I do play freerolls(not turbo,Normal NL holdem) often(since its free) and ever got 8th position for a weekly challenge at ps.
Im assuming its better to play micro with real money to see where i am in the scene for a start and then move on with higher stakes.Qns to sng players , how much % is considered a profit if u start with a $5000 bankroll.Lets say in 2-3months duration , 8-10hrs for 20 days a month. I usually do 2-4($5-$10 stake) tables at a go

Any advice/suggestion will be appreciated

I am impressed that you actually have the discipline to play PLAY Money for a month.
You are already half way there. :D
I agree with Chenghao's comment.
Remember those play money players and real money players are playing with different styles.
If you want to treat poker seriously and intend to win some real $ without forking out a single cent.
Go try out the FREEROLLS on these poker sites and you never know when you will WIN a big one.
There are a few kakis on this forum that have won Tournament Packages worth thousands by playing these FREEROLLS.
Btw, Pokerstars offers the best FREEROLLS of all time. Go check it out.

Good luck in your future games.

You can win millions of play money chips and sell it, yes I'm not joking. Someone at 2+2 did the same thing and sold it for a decent amount of money.

I've just graduated from Play Money and am now hitting Micro Stakes. =)
