1. Every player must announce their intention to play in the Cowboy Challenge before they start the challenge. The announcement must be in the official thread : "Post your (Month) Cowboy's Challenge intent here" A new thread will be started for each month at least ten days prior to the beginning of the challenge. Like the Battle of the Planets, this 100-game challenge must be for consecutive games at the same level.

Announcing your intention:

2A Any player wishing to partake must make an affirmative statement. for example "I intend to take the Cowboy Challenge"
B The statement must indicate the kind of game(s) one will play. Players have the option of selecting the SNG game of their choice. Games must be 9 player tables or any multiple thereof - NO 6 max tables ( fifty fifty do not qualify) Knockouts can be played but KO's cannot be counted in the prizes.
C The price of the game must be given. (25¢ --- 50¢ --- etc.)

Player's obligation:

3. Players must post their results in a separate thread in the "Challenges and Battleground" forum. The format of the post title is to be: (Screen name) (Month) Cowboy Challenge.

Information required in the Player's thread:

4A The initial bankroll, which shall equal 25 times the game fee. (25¢ = $6.25)
B The game identification number as provided by PokerStars.
C Your finish position whether you cashed or not.
D Any winnings. A finish out of the money will be recorded as $0.00
E A running balance (This must be shown at least every 10 games for multi tablers)

Upon Completion:

5. Once the player has finished the 100-consecutive game(s) noted in his challenge, he must post the final results and PM this information to 19honu62 with a direct link to the completed thread. The summary information is to include:
A The initial bankroll - ($6.25 for the 25¢ game)
B The total winnings from the 100 games
C The total cost of the 100 games
D The net profit / gain

Challenge Conditions for Qualifying for a STEP 1 ticket:

6A The 100 consecutive games must be finished before the end of the calendar month as determined by the PokerStars clock, which is US East Coast time zone.
B The net profit or gain must exceed the initial bankroll by 100% ( $6.25 doubled to at least $12.50+ )
C Players can qualify for the prize in multiple challenges. (25¢ games and 50¢ games)
D Players can qualify more than once a month to earn more chances to win.

Awarding of the prize $5.00:

7. Once the results have been verified, players will be informed via PM that they have successfully completed the challenge. During the first week of the subsequent month, (February for the January challenge), the successfull canidates wil be listed in the official thread. The final posting will be to announce the winners.
A If two or more qualify the highest ROI will win $5
B All results may require verification from PokerStars official audit. If there is a discrepency then it is the responsibility of the member to prove correct stats.

Giddy Up!
