Spartan's quest

Big Bang v. Open League Grind
Send PM

Got an email this morning advising that I  have been awarded a Prenier League ticket for December ! After registering in 89 games and not playing a hand I finished 756th on 2091 pts. ( I must clarify one small thing : I inadvertently used the time bank twice for a total of about 15 seconds when I registered late ..and I still dont know how it happened ! )

I had some remarkable results finishing  in the 700 s once and a few around the 1000. The thing that sticks out is that you will never get a bad result , never .If you get a negative result it will only be small and you will probably make it up next game .So I am only $2.50 richer but a lot more knowledgeable about how one should play the Open League .

So Premier League beckons, but I havent accrued 150 VPPs so its not going to be as profitable as the Open League if I decide to seriously take it on .

Thanks to everyone that has put their two bobs worth in,  its certainly  been a worthwhile excercise
