Boy Howdy... time sure 'nuff flies.... Here it's only April 11 and the PSO has 10k participants AND I'm in the top 1k. Time to start PSO'n FastCurves style. I'm sure there are some buzzkills out there who don't find anything productive in this endeavor and will want me to defend it. For those killjoys I will be happy to post one of the inaugural posts:

I'm sure everyone is in awe of those who inhabit the front page of the PSO Leaderboard. I, myself would like to extend my congratulations. But I have sensed the boredom in many posts, with the leaders who are just running WFO (in Grand Prix terms, and perhaps NASCAR, Wide F'in Open) to the end of the month.
That's where the Fast Curves Poker Challenge comes in. The object is to achieve a 20k place change within one month of competition.
Now I hear people murmuring, 'But Tazz, that's impossible, no one can effect that dramatic a change.' WRONG! I, myself, accomplished that very feat 3 MONTHS IN A ROW. On January 11th, I was in the money. (i.e. the top 1000) I then looked up the lowest (or is that highest? The Worst...) ranked player and mimicked his play, or lack thereof. I used some of the reading techniques I have learned at PSO to determine which hands could beat my holdings, and then bet into them... By January 19th, I was at 1418 points: in 11,726th place... I then did a 180 for the remaining 12 days and finished at 1616.93 pts. and 1627th place (pending the 2200 pm results, which are positive points--) Now I'm sure some of y'all are better at math than me, but I believe that's >20k in position displacement....
Those doubters and haters have also reminded me to ask a "What ever happened to...?' question: SOFAKING WHAT?


I'm just sayin'...

Totally by accident

Went from 10,030th on the 14th of March
Lost my internet for 2 days
Ended up finishing the month in 893rd
Does this count as curve play ?

Just askin'

Did you start in the money when PSO league participants hit 10 k?? If you just went WFO (Wide shut your mouth Open) up, congrats but that isn't very curvy...

Im just sayin....
