Finished the challenge barely with doubled bankroll was really close because I had to min cash in one of the last 5 I played or else I would have been short a few cents from the goal of a doubled bankroll.
Im not really happy with my results and think I can do better. I found that I was playing to loose in alot of the tournaments. Also I found that I was overplaying big pairs on draw heavy boards. There are alot of other things I realized I was doing wrong and close to around the last 30 tournaments I tried to adjust and fix whatever I thought I was doing wrong. I still kept doing some of the same things because I was losing my patience and going on tilt.
I think next time I do the challenge I will do alot better. Im going to do the challenge at the .10c level and when I complete that I will do it at the ,25c level again.
It took me around 3-4 days to complete the challenge and I thought I could do it faster but I dont really have the time.
Good luck to anyone else who is taking the challenge

I second that! It takes me nearly the whole month to play out the 100 games but I've set myself a limit of only playing 2 tables at a time and try to really concentrate on getting some reads on opponents. Usually I play 4 games in the challenge per day and spend a few hours playing micro cash.

Good Job on doubling your starting balance!

Great job Pokerstar.... verified and congrats on the double up and being the first qualifier for a STEP 1 ticket.
Good luck on your next challenge as each challenge you complete gives you another shot but keep in mind you can only win 1 STEP ticket each month.

Gidee Up!
