Creeping over the line?

Another two cashes to add to my name, finishing 468th in an Open Skill League tournament and 61st in a BankrollMob tournament for $0.07.

These 'generic' cashes are all good and fine, but I'm not going to progress as a player until I start properly playing for real money. Beginning next month, I will be, and hopefully have similar results to share!

With tomorrow being the last day of the month, the freeroll tournaments will be finishing in just over 24 hours time. I'm making it a mission to play as many tournaments in these 24 hours as I possibly can, and I'm going to make some realistic goals for this 24 hours of play.


1) The PokerSchool Open Skill League

    - As of right now, I stand in 2,301st place in the OSL, with a score of 1,840. I know the top 2,000 finish in the money for the month, and I would love to finish in that top 2,000, especially due to the fact I started with less than half of the month remaining! If over the next 24 hours, I can have a score of 1,900+ and be inside the top 2,000, I will be incrediby satisfied.


2) The BankrollMob $25 Freeroll Leaderboard

    - BankrollMob freeroll league tournaments are played over three months at a time, not one like the OSL. However, the current one ends at the end of July, an again, I only started July 18th. Despite that, I've made 0.97 points in it, with four cash finishes and a final table appearance. It woud take a miracle for me to finish in the top 200 of the league and qualify for the big freeroll at the end (I'd need to win one of the remaining tournaments), so I'll be happy just to gain over 1 full point. One cash finish in 24 hours will suit me fine.


3) 888poker Bonus $75 freerolls and Iron $100 freerolls

    - The first freeroll tournaments I ever played, and I can't stop playing them! Over the next 24 hours, I'd like to cash for $0.50 total. That's two minimum cash finishes in 24 hours, somethiing realistic if a bit difficult.


So that's my next 24 hours sorted. Good luck all!
