Stop wishing my life away Chris.... 9 1/2 days is a long time at my age!

I'll be attempting both the $0.25 (45/90playerMTT) and $1.50 (9player STT) sitngo levels again in February. My major grind in the Open Skill League has taken up a lot of time this month so nowhere near the required volume got done again.

Good luck all

I'd like to be inluded in this for $1.50 9man SNG. One of the worst games to try it on probably, especially in turbo mode with small swongs, but worth a go as that's what I'll be doing anyway.

I don't enjoy STT that much but how else am I going to make use of the deposit bonus and get out of bronze star for cash games to help with the brutal rake there!? Trying to learn the strategy makes it interesting enough to bother with!

I've realised this will be impossible to double BR 100 games in the turbos during day times, against the other students, about 1.5 fish per table on average day times the rest ABC players, although none of us know how to play heads up in the $1.50s, thats where the edge could be made. If we had those skills we wouldn't be in the $1.50s though!

I can't only evenings/weekend when there are more weaker players so will have small expected ROI. I will post my 100 results though just out of interest.

Thanks for running these every month Cowboy

Normally, when I commit to doing something, I like to see it through - so I've been avoiding signing up in case I wasn't able to finish the 100 games in a month. BUT I feel like the structure is really good for me since I have that tendency to flake and go dabble in all sorts of different types of games. So I feel like even if I try and fall short of the 100 ... or finish the 100, but don't manage to double the 25 buy-ins, it'll still be worth giving a shot

So I'd like to sign up for the $1.50 regular speed STT's - GL everybody!!! Hope we all do really well!!!

Thanks again Cowboy!!

I will be doing another go at the $0.25 level. Hopefully I'll be able to achieve similar results this month.

Thanks for putting on this challenge.

Sign me up for the $0.25, 90 player SNGs. I will indicate my starting BR as $6.25, although thanks to your SNG videos it is more than that. I am hoping to top my January ROI of 53%. It will be difficult to squeeze in a hundred games, because they take so long if you do well. No harm in trying, right? Especially if the worst encumberment is success.

See you at the tables, and good luck!
