OK - maybe a little overdramatic

I actually have ten days to complete the Cowboy's Challenge, so no point in just giving up. Rather than just practice I think I'll declare another shot, at the very cheap and I am sure very variant $0.10 360 man sitngo. So $2.50 to be doubled over 100 games. I'll start loading games as soon as I bust from the PSO and Facebook tourneys I'm in right now.

Good luck all

First twenty tournaments at the 360 player $0.10 sitngo.

Second ten completed more succesfully, 3 ITM finishes including 2 final tables and importantly a 3rd place in the last game I played, getting a nice profit. The problem now will be getting the volume done as there is such a busy weekend of fun poker stuff coming up.

I have now taken my 25 buy ins at the $0.10 level and doubled my bankroll from $2.50 to $5.00+

Game T-No Finish BuyIn Prize Profit/Loss Cum BR
Bankroll after 20 games $5.55
21 474792222 195 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.95 $5.45
22 474793333 138 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.85 $5.35
23 475482125 117 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.75 $5.25
24 476153692 53 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.65 $5.15

I think mother nature and lady luck conspired on this - I've had the same happen to me when answering an urgent call of nature. Of course you always get back just in time to see your aces folded!!

Well it is cheap. And for 360 player games they spin by pretty fast.

Managed to fit in ten more games this afternoon, that is fifty done, just about maintaining that doubled bankroll around the $5 mark.


BR after 40 games $4.49

41 476709232 9 -$0.10 $0.61 +$0.51 $2.50 $5.00

BR after 50 games $5.09

I doubt I will get through another 50 as I have come down with a bad cold today, but I may play some more whilst I am in the final PSO and UKIPT games at 7pm (WET), so if I do get a good cash in one then I might try to finish it off before the deadline. Going to take some drugs and lie down for a couple of hours.

Last few games, no luck.

made it through 56 games for a profit of $1.99

will decide if I want to try these again for December's challenge. It has been a good exercise.

BR after 50 games $5.09
51 476853337 93 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.49 $4.99
52 476907432 227 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.39 $4.89
53 476909725 121 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.29 $4.79
54 476912081 65 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.19 $4.69
55 476913288 148 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $2.09 $4.59
56 476915705 120 -$0.10 $0.00 -$0.10 $1.99 $4.49

Its been a poor 'nearly' night at the tables this evening, in PSO/UKIPT and 10th Anniversary Sunday Storm Freeroll, came close a few times but no cigar. Feeling like crud due to flu so off to bed.

Well done all who completed the Cowboys Challenge in November, and good luck to all taking part in December.
