Poker go read honu's update on the rules of the challenge. It officially starts on November 1st and all games must be played at the SAME buy-in level though field size can differ. Of course you can do a run in both the .25 and the .50 games if you want. Can only win one ticket though.

But certainly nothing wrong with taking a "practice" run at this during October. Trying the Honu Challenge can be a nice little BR builder,as you're seeing. I swung and missed at beating the challenge a couple times,but I DID increase my BR with each attempt and to me that's a reward unto itself.

Running good man,keep it going.

Hi Sw,welcome to the Forum.


He's probably just recording the tournament #'s (they're at the top of the screen) and logging his results. If you want to look up your (or anyone else's ) results in pay to play MTT's or 36 man and up SNG's then go to www.pokerrankings.com (you'll see this site referred to many times here as OPR).

It does not track freerolls,league games,FPP tourneys,satellites or Sit and Goes (SNG's) with less than 36 players. Everything else it's pretty good.

So that's how Cowboy verifies the challenge.

And as Moxie said, it's always nice seeing an increase in the bankroll.

thanks for you support guys
had a bad run this early morning when i played the .50c tournys had to sit out the first three levels of blinds while 12 tabling luckily i managed to cash in one of them going.

The way I record my results is simple. I record them while Im playing. I just copy past the tourny ID from the hand history when I bust out and go to the lobby to see what place I finished. Sometimes it gets confusing if im multitabling and the table closes because I have to manually type in the tournament number.

Thank you 19honu62 for creating this wonderful challenge.
Good luck to anyone taking this challenge

Pokerstars,

as moxie pointed out all games must be played at the same buy in however this does not stop anyone from playing 100 @ $.25 and 100 @ $.50. You can qualify any way you wish but as long as they are at same buy ins.

I also use pokerporlabs which seems to me the most accurate recording of sng's or sharkscope too but i dont have a membership there.

Folks this challenge is attainable and you are playing them anyway right why not record them and post that you are taking the challenge.

Gidee Up!
