Well it's a new year so time to make a serious effort at the challenge, domestic issues and the holidays thwarting me from finishing the last two months.

You have made the final two tables over 50% of the time. Over 50% of your final two table appearences have resulted in an ITM finishes. Keep up the good work and I will tell you what your third goal should be. (It is the easiest and you should achieve it well over 90% of the time.)

I seem to have gone really nitty the last couple of days, keep making final 2 tables then drying up, being relatively card dead hasn't helped.

Final 2 Tables.............50/70

By my calculations that means I will have done the challenge, (30*0.25=7.50). Will still play the remaining 30 games to see how much profit I can make.

Yeehah.

As I had completed the challenge save for the last 30 games I tried multitabling more than 2 at a time and playing a bit LAG to see what difference it made, not a good idea !

Hiya Boobylops,

Congrats on a great ROI here!

Learning to multi-table is not a bad thing. Play what your comfortable at though and add a table or two each week until for find that there is too much going on. If you find that there is too much information being lost then drop back to where you find the sweet spot.

Learning where's the best position for each table on your screen is helpful too. In the Pokerstars lobby you can select View > then Tile tables, Cascade tables, or set up your own custom favourite.

Only 10 games left and 10 days to play them, your looking good. Put your heart into these last ten games!

Best of luck Boobylops!
