Wow 2 months of the Cowboy's Challenge are about to be complete and we have seen some very impressive results! 3 qualifiers each month for a STEP 1 ticket and more importantly people are turning profits. Please post your intent to play the Challenge here in this thread for January and then open a new thread and post your results.

The challenge rules are simple.

Post your intent to play here
play 100 games all at the same buy in level ie: $.25 x 45 or 90 mans sng's; $7 x 9,18,27 or 45 mans
You start with 25 buyins as your starting bankroll ie 25 x $.25 = $6.25; 25 x $15 = $375
all games must be sng and must be 9 players or more and no fifty fifty
any buy in qualifies as long as the games are sng's structure as defined by PokerStars
double your 25 buy ins after 100 games and qualify
a new thread must be posted tracking all games listing tourney id, buyin, result and current bankroll

Prize is 3 x STEP 1 tickets and you can qualify more than once to increase your chances to win but each member can only win 1 per month.

Gidee Up!

You can count me in 4 another round of .25/45man mtts

& i also think i'll try a round of .50/45man turbos
& I will try to mount a personal challenge of $1.50/50fifty turbos
so i can accumulate some much needed VPPs,
I need to learn how to make enough to pay 4 a HUD

I intend to attempt the 10c 360 man Sit & Go again.

Didn't quite make half way in December, hopefully January will see an improvement.

Buzz, I receive nothing from PokerStars for having people take this challenge. My involvement with PSO is as a live trainer and hand analyser. I am trying to promote the challenge because it incorporates great bankroll managment skills and as many have proven, profits! PSO rewards great results to 3 members each month for their acheivements.
If more people take this challenge and play volume, PokerStars gets more rake and PSO can provide more prizes! Since the majority of online players are losing players, I hope that through my training and guidance I can help some of those players that are diligent in their study to become profitable.

Gidee Up!

I definitely intend to take the challenge in January at the $0.25 level, 90player and 45player sitngos. (But we all know where the road paved with good intentions leads to.)

I won't start until the Hogmanay Hangover has worn off - usually about the 5th Jan....

Due to 'circumstances beyond my control' I only managed a handful of games in December.
Hopefully all will go smoother in 2012.

Good luck all
