Plan is to take $1 and play .02c 990 players hyper turbos until I hit the 5$ mark then move up to the .10c 360 player turbos until i hit the 12.50 mark. Doing this gives me 50x buy ins for each level. Just want to see what happens lol just for fun.

I played a lot of these at one point, hope I never have to again lol. They are definitely beatable, but require a lot of patience. Good luck!!

good luck!

i have some insight though.

50 BI is not enough to be profitable in those .02/990 unless you top 3 one early in your pursuit

however very feasible to do at the .10/360s turbos since you can maneuver through those more skillfully.

i like your challenge but would skip the .02c

again good luck

Well this challenge is harder than I thought it would be. Ive been at it for 3 days on and off. Hopefully I can final table one of these so I can start with the .10c tournaments which are alot easier to beat. The main problem is in the daytime where I live the tournaments take around 10 to 30 minutes to fill up. While I wait for these to fill I just play the astronomer freerolls to kill time practice all games and have fun while im waiting. They fill up faster at around 12am-5am but I usually am to tired to play. Anyways Im gunna keep going at it until I bust or reach my goal.

I was wondering how far you would be able to go along in this. The .10 360's and 240 PLO's are doable but those .02 990's are just brutal.
