Well I decided after the pretty awful beginning Iâ€™ve had to 2010 irl to set myself a little fun challenge and, as youâ€™re aware from my last blog, I set up an account on Full Tilt and Iâ€™m going full on Road to Robusto style and youâ€™ll be able to follow how Iâ€™m doing on this blog.
As Iâ€™ve sure any LHE guy on DC is aware the Dojo Master Entity back inâ€¦2007 I thinkâ€¦geez Iâ€™ve been a member of this site THAT longâ€¦.embarked on a little project on Full Tilt to mark out how to get up the stakes.
Now I kind of did that last year but Iâ€™ve got to be a little protective of my Stars Bankroll at the moment and I have Bonuses on Full Tilt to clear so this seemed as good a time as any to have some fun with it.
The challenge is this:
I am due to fly out to the US on 20th of May. Before then I want to have played 20,000 hands of poker between writing this blog and then (bear in mind I only played 42k the whole of last year).
Start out with $599.99 becasue of the f**king excahnge rate not allowing me to deposit exactly $600 which also means a $599.99 bonus and 27% RB (Thanks DC).
Moving Up Rules:
I must move down if I ever have 500BB for the limit below, although I refuse to play lower than 0.5/1, and I can move up if I can take a 100BB shot at the level above while maintaining 500BB for the lower limit.
So in case that confused youâ€¦
I can take my first shot at 1/2 at $700 as losing 100BB would leave me with $500 for 0.5/1 (or Rush poker as Iâ€™ll be playing)
I can take first shot at 2/4 at $1400. Same deal.
If Iâ€™m playing 2/4 and my bankroll goes below $1000 I have to drop back to 1/2 until I hit $1400 again.
Fortunately things got off to a pretty flying start and the first hurdle was dispensed with in just over 1100 hands of Rush Poker.
With the might $3.66 in Rakeback I got thatâ€™s $700.
So next update should be from 1/2, weâ€™ll see how that goes but hopefully with Bonus at RB flying around if I donâ€™t get a bad start I should be able to stay there.
This should be fun
