Hitting a mammoth 5bb per 100. At this rate I'll win if everyone else busts or forgets they're doing the challenge.
wait that's my strategy! did you sneak a peek at my playbook?!
gg StueysKid. there will be consolation prizes... wait sorry you didn't make it to 50k. but here's a souvenir official DC 50K Challenge parting smiley [you can print it out and apply adhesive to the back and put it on your wallet or car bumper. sorry budget's tight this year.]
i'm going to try & buck the trend by playing Stud games ... first session today & I got 414 hands in in just over an hour (6 tabling [2 stud hi, 2 stud hi-lo & 2 razz] FTW!) & finished up $11.25 ... though with Poker Tracker Stud no longer being supported, I might have tracking issues past day 30!
Not doin so well though http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/64/asdcgw.jpg/
I am still in. Just under 5k played (I think), down from a peak of +$130 to only be up $40 though after a gruesume -4BI session this morning. That's still a respectable 8bb/100 on the surface but underneath the surface is an ugly binary chop of sessions which are either >150bb/100 playing (and running) well and <-150bb/100 playing like a donkey.
Notes to self: playing a bunch of nit grinders when you wake up at 5am in the morning == stoopid.
