Hi Guys,

I'm going to keep track of my Cowboy's Challenge results here on this thread. The target is to play 100 $0.25c Sit N Go's each month. More than likely these will be 45/90 man SnG's but hopefully I'll get to throw in some 180 man games too.

October is a practice month and starting in November the top 3 places in the league are rewarded with Step 1 tickets. This is not the reason I'm taking up this challenge though. What I'm really hoping to achieve is to improve my officialpokerrankings.com stats.

I'll post my results daily and begin with what my stats are as of this moment in time.



Rating - 85.89%

ROI - 6%

ITM - 18%



Good luck to anyone taking part in this challenge. For more info on the challenge search the forum for 'Cowboy Challenge'.

Cheers guys,

Here's one hand that worked out well for me today. I can understand the BB shoving the turn card here but still trying to figure out what the SB was thinking.....

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

button...shiny...click...

That would be my guess.

Seriously royal the more you play these the more you'll see that most of the players are only playing with one oar in the water as all they can or will process is how the board affects THEIR holdings and not what your range may be and whether you may have a better piece of it than they do. That's why they go bust calling it down on a board this wet with a hand like a pair of Q's with an 8 kicker that very well may not even play on the turn. Then on the river he thinks his 2 pair is going to play,with obvious straight and flush possibilities staring him right in the face.


This is why note taking is so crucial when you're signing on to play a big grind of these. Very possible you'll see this guy again. Now you know--he is capable of calling it all the way down with any piece of the board.

Like the steal attempt with the suited one-gapper by the way. Nice hand.

Flopped a straight and nut flush draw..... Luckily for me my opponents had flush draws too and this helped me get a good pay off here.....

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
