Starting a thread to keep track off this challenge. I thought it would be fun to do it with help so marvinsytan and PINOY_HITMAN will be building a bankroll with me.

We shall play a certain amount off games each per day/week whatever we all agree on. We are going to start with $6.75 ($2.25) each.
We no that some players will win games some will loose that's poker. As its a team game we are just trying to build a bankroll between us and will eventually split it evenly.
The only goal here is to follow the challenge and see were it takes us, have fun and win $$$

Starting Bankroll:6.75
Level1: 0.25

Hedgehog will just throw this idea out and see if anyone gives it a sniff.

If the team wins the Cowboy Challenge, (earnings over 100%), and it is sufficiently high enough to qualify for a Step Ticket, could it be awarded to the team member who had the highest earnings?

Can you imagine the possibilities? A team earns a ticket and Player A contributed the most to those earnings. That player parleys his Step One Ticket into a Step Five ticket and makes it to the money in the Sunday Million game.

Good idea but i think the ticket idea has ended. I suppose we could do something between us.

When I posted my comments, I didn't know about the Cowboy Challenge losing out to the PSO.

On a side note, I'm American. Cash games are off limits. (Explative deleted) DOJ.

Thanks Ed from dropping by, same structure as the Cowboy Challenge, 25 buy in is the initial Bankroll and for what we agreed we will start on $ 0.25 45 man with total bankroll of $ 6.25.

We will play the 25 buy in randomly like minimum of 2 tourney per day and we can play more each day depend on our result, as we all know in poker you can have good run and can have a tilt run.

I will start my 1st 2 now after my breakfast

Wish me luck mate.

But i got a question, since it's a team effort and i am thinking are we violating rules of fair play when we end up in same table like in FT. When it happens, one of us must sit out whenever the other is on hand?

Mates we jump to a great start

1-2 finished for my 1st two

$ 5.75 - 0.50 (0.25*2) = $ 5.25 + $5.45 ($3.23 +2.22) = $10.7
Current Bankroll = $10.7

I think we should take it in turns playing 2 games at a time. As you 2 have played its my turn. This way we can not end up in the same game. So the order off play will be marvin pinoy then me.

I think we could use a banker to keep us on track, They hold the $ and ship us 2 buy ins at a time all winnings sent back to banker. I dont mind if we do it between us or get a good member who would be up for it. What do you guys think ?

Good start pinoy.
