Moving down stakes again in a desperate attempt to stay in the competition.... not sure it's possible to win if I have to move down this far
there are 2 criteria to win.
trying to win it in the first 500 or 5000 hands shouldn't even be a consideration. you can't win it now, no matter how hard you try, but you can certainly lose. this is like the first level of a tourney.
I finished the session ~~ break even, but still I have already hit the -$1k line, so according to challenge rules I'm done ;p
Btw I kept on playing my regular stakes, NL€100, so we can say I played with a 7.2 BI bankroll. I was doing quite well recently, therefore I didn't expect such huge downswing in the very beginning (still I could have saved ~~ 2 BI I guess).
546 hands today. i think i can?
wore my bluff magnet tonight.

yeah i facepalmed too when i iso'd and saw 2 guys with 20 bb in blinds. it's ok, i got 2 outered for a stack and got my due punish later.
Well, I missed sign ups, but what I am doing while trying to build up a bankroll is pretty much the same as this so might as well have fun and update like I'm part of this.
2,000 hands in up $3.92 with a 2.53 BB/100 at 4NL in November. I have to say, Baluga Whale and Tuba Steve are the tits. Haven't played any poker since the FTP thing, and all DC has me feeling good about my game and ready to grind up another roll.
Run good everybody.
