The idea is to start off with a balance of 25 buy-ins at a chosen level and the target is to double that starting balance by the end of the challenge.

This month I'm going to play out 2 of these challenges. One at the $0.25c level and the other at the $1 level.

Starting Balances and targets are as follows;

$0.25c Level
Starting Balance - $6.25
Target - $12.50

$1 Level
Starting Balance - $25
Target - $50

Raiser

I'm going to play out the $0.25c games first........ Here's my progress so far!



#1...............3/1/12........494275246.........12/45......0.25......0...........6
#2...............3/1/12........494272955.........11/45......0.25......0...........5.75
#3...............3/1/12........494271948.........16/45......0.25......0...........5.5
#4...............3/1/12........494273925.........28/45......0.25......0...........5.25
#5...............3/1/12........494344960.........14/45......0.25......0...........5
#6...............3/1/12........494347724.........35/45......0.25......0...........4.75
#7...............3/1/12........494276418...........4/45......0.25......1.29.....5.79
#8...............3/1/12........494277370............9/45.....0.25.......0..........5.54
#9...............3/1/12........494345949............9/45.....0.25.......0..........5.29
#10.............3/1/12........494346833............8/45.....0.25.......0..........5.04
#11.............3/1/12........494348811..........12/45.....0.25.......0..........4.79
#12.............3/1/12........494344122..........13/45.....0.25.......0..........4.54
#13.............3/1/12........494380842............6/45.....0.25.......0.62.....4.91
#14.............3/1/12........494376502..........11/45.....0.25.......0..........4.66
#15.............3/1/12........494378180..........18/45.....0.25.......0..........4.41
#16.............3/1/12........494355805.............8/45....0.25........0.........4.16

I also want to keep track of as much stats as I can while completing this challenge.

My current overall OPR is as follows:

Rating: 92.09%
ROI: 22%
ITM: 23%

After 16 games played I'm averaging a finish of 13th/45.

I can only put this down to the players that were on our tables last night. This is the reason i shoved on 4 at once i tilted due to the hands that was winning, lucky u i shoved 86 and u picked up AA lol. Keep at it just join the games when there are about 40 players reg if u note take u will see roughly what your up against.
Good luck see u at the tables.

For a full list of results to date check out my Blog

Here's a bit of humour. I'm not posting this as a bad beat but if you consider our starting hands this is a real 'Action' flop. I should have raised preflop but I had 7 tables open and that's a little too much for me at my level, I found it hard to keep up with everything that was going on. At the moment I'm comfortable at 4 tables at a time. I felt sorry for myself but even more sorry for the guy holding the Cowboys!

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Always look on the bright side of life!
