I’ve decided to do twenty-five orbits of Mars in 25 days. That’s 500 $3.40 27-player S&Gs starting on 2/27 and ending on 3/23 (or before). I’m looking for people to bet against me. Happy to book prop bets (it will motivate me) against any of my following goals:

• I will complete 500 tourneys in the 25 days and do it in a total of 70 hours or less.
• My ROI will be above 29.5% ($501.50 profit).
• I will make the Mars BOP leader board at least once.
• I will score some BOP added value (I’ll only book this one if I am offered odds).

Done. I'm going to post big picture results here so the thread doesn't get bogged down. I will PM you the specific tourney numbers so you can audit.

Good luck.

Done. Another $5 on ROI. Will PM you the tourney numbers also.

I didn't expect so much action so quickly. I'm capping my exposure for prop bets at $100. There is $90 left. Come get it while it's hot.

Beginning to wonder why people are jumping on the same bet?

No, I know exactly why you are jumping on that bet. It is the bet I was hoping you would take and I am excited about the action. Want to double up?

I'm finding that really funny, myself. But then again, this whole thread is funny. An eagle that's a martian? Classic.

I'm really interested in how well you do, though. I hope you have a +ROI, but I'm really interested in someone who can actually do well in the BoP world. I don't even really know how it works, because I assumed a long time ago that it was a bit beyond me.

The BOP is just added value. This is more about beating the $3.40 27-players at an unusually high ROI than it is about the BOP. But here is the link in case you want more info:

I actually hope you win the ROI% part. Then I will get out of these $4.40's I am running and come down to this game and join you in this success.

Run Well!

Thanks JT. I'm working under the premis that these games are soft because the rake is high. Better players and volume players will play the $5.50s and avoid these. That's my theory anyway.
