Personal Cowboy Challenge

By: bibliofagos @ 16:58 (EST) / 251 / Comment ( 1 )

Last month I saw the cowboy challenge in the forum, and as there is no chance I'll be able to finish 100 SNGs in one month at the moment, I decided I'll just do one for myself, in my own time.

The starting point I used, was the starting point of my tracking in HEM2 (jan 13th), and today I finished my 100th $1 45 man SNG.

Usually I play 2 to 4 SNG's daily, and am quite comfortable 2-tabling them now. Maybe I'll try 3 tables soon, that may get me in the reaches of a 'real' cowboy challenge. However, without further ado, the results:

So, I made 27.02 on them, and just made the target of doubling the 25 BI bankroll.

Couple of things: my results started getting more 'stable' in the second half, and I noticed HEM2 doesn't always put the finishing position right, so they might be off on occasion, but the money is correct.

When I have a bit more time to play, I also try my hand on the $2.50 90 man SNG, and they seem to agree with me a bit more. I played 12 so far, and got ITM 5 times, for total winnings of $162.77 (442.6% ROI). Tiny sample, yes. But the start is promising. Wish I had the time to play them more often :wink:

Have fun at the tables :-D
