Bankroll challenge Feb 2012: 1st update

By: Roland GTX @ 03:19 (EST) / 36 / Comment ( 0 )

I got in my first three sets of this challenge yesterday playing 24 tourneys. 11 $2.5/180s and 13 $3.50/45s. I had 5 itms (21%), but no love at any of the FTs. I got railed 6th, 9th and 10th in the 180s and 4th and 7th in the 45s.

After one day, I'm up $4.91 in the 180's and down a whopping $-22.54 in the 45s which puts me down $-17.63 in total.

I play a pretty standard TAG game in both tourney types. The only significant distintion I make is bubble play. I treate the 45s like single table sngs meaning my range for calling stack treatening raises on the bubble is extremely small. Whereas in the 180s I'm not too concerned with min-cashing. I'm doing whatever I can to make the top three spots.

I'm not sure if this is the best approach to the 45s. Any advice would be welcome :)
