Got the first 20 games under my belt. A good start overall, would have been better if it weren't for a few bubbles. 20% ITM or better is my goal and I have hit that mark exactly for the first 20. Long way to go though.

Is it ok to post my results in a spreadsheet like below, or do they need to be in text format? I know the spreadsheet isn't perfect, I will look to fix that.

Good luck everyone.

Text please as I won't be opening any attached files. I know it's a pain for you but just think how it will enhance your typing skills. You can also post it as a PT3 or HEM graph as others do. I use poker pro labs to verify results.

Still going strong in this chalange, still going weak in finding an eficient way of recording the results. Looks like its back to notepad for me! I will list all my games when I reach halfway. So far I am at 29 games with 3 1st places, whoop!

I woke up early today as I couldn’t sleep. I played a few games and with two frustrating bubbles I decided to sort out my rail instead of playing on whilst tilted. I'm pretty sure the above now contains everything that is needed as per the terms of the challenge.

Yes, those bubble burst-outs can be very frustrating.

Your looking good though! Not even at half distance and you've already nearly doubled your Starting Balance!

Wishing you every success in the challenge!

TY guys.

As for spelling, well it is definitely not one of my strong points! I try to spell-check my posts but I’m sure there are plenty of mistakes that slip through the net.

Oh well, Dyslexia Rules KO!

I'm now halfway through and on track for beating the challenge. I had a bad run of 12 games without a cash. Some of this was just variance, sucking out when it didn't really matter and getting sucked-out on when it did. But annoyingly a lot of this was my fault, because I played with hardly any sleep. Oh well, lesson learned. Bring on the next 50!

Having a bit of a barren run at the moment. It is frustrating because I don't think I’m doing too much wrong. I'm gonna play a few more tonight and then re-watch the spacegravey videos tomorrow as a refresher.
