4 days in and we have our first qualifier in a1379. The thread were posted a little sloppy at first but after some direction and his fixing it up he has doubled 25 buy turning $25 into $72.35.

Congrats! are we running this again?

Hello Posse,

Well we are 8 days gone and we have our second qualifier. Please help me congratulate UMGUY a first timer to the challenge who played the $.25 level and crushed it for $17 profit and a chance at winning a STEP 1 ticket!

Great job UMGUY and continued success.

Giddy Up!

Congrats to our a1379 who qualified yet again for the STEP 1 ticket for January as he took $25 and turned it into $61.45 and is now on his third attempt!

Remember you can only win 1 ticket but can qualify often.

Okay Posse the month is coming to an end and there are some good numbers out there so please let me know if you have beat the challenge.

Okay now to serious matters! I have just done a poker pro labs study of all those that have posted for January and out of about 40 players there are only 12 that have a profit! What is going on? You have great live trainers on PSO and all those pro videos to watch for free! Am I being harsh? Damn straight! I know some of you are only playing for fun and not overly serious but the rest of you why are you not posting hands in the HA thread and geting help? Why are you not sending games to The Langolier for study and replay? If you are serious what are you doing to get better?

Come on folks we have a great site here and lets make it better by turning those games into profit.

Giddy Up!

I would like to congratulate ggervacio who crushed this challenge some time ago but I was dealing with some other issues and missed it. He took the $.10 games and crushed it for a $6.88 profit to qualify! WTG!

Well done Posse! We had close to 60 attempts verbalised for the Cowboy's Challenge in January and had our most number of qualifiers yet! 7 members were able to double their 25 buy ins at the level they played and a1379 did it twice. Many others made profits which is always awesome.
Below is a list of the qualifiers and their repsective ROI. I will submit this list for payment of the tickets right away. If their are any discrepancies please feel free to contact me.

Winners of a STEP 1 ticket

1. chrisbooth83 -- 84.2% roi
2. ggervacio -- 68.8% roi
3. umguy -- 68.4% roi

runners up

4. legion03 -- 50.1% roi
5. a1379 -- 47.4% roi
6. royalraise85 -- 38.1% roi
7. a1379 -- 36.5% roi
8. boobylops -- 36.1% roi
9. sleepyman -- 26.9% roi

Congratulations and good luck with February.
