Hey guys,

I don't usually like to help the other team, but I won't be able to sleep well if I don't at least make the effort to save you 6-max gamb00laholics from yourselves.

So remember, it's ok to quit the challenge when you feel the pressure of the gamble weighing down on you in the gambling bingo 6-max games!!!

Couple of hours to go
Actual bankroll $143.00 + $8.20 T$
Challenge bankroll $80 (Obviously!)

Busy day tomorrow. Firsty playing golf in morning (got to be up in 3 hours for that). Then off to see my niece, Zaphia, who was born yesterday. 460FPP sat to main event later (qualified for 10FPP on 3rd or 4th attempt. If I get $22 ticket for 40FPP with my tourney play I'll be amazed). Will probably play the PSO sat to the main event as well with my T$. And, of course, its down to the serious business of beating those fullringers into the ground.

Good luck all (do we need luck?).

Will

Hi Team 6-max,

Good luck to us.

Hope UK clocks are now in sync with ET + 5.

Thanks Dave, a bit of banter from the rival coach won't put bingo players on tilt.

Just one time!

Just 56c profit for me, 75 hands in 1hr 15min.

My first hand the old 72o dilemma - of course I folded.



Learning to observe the table helped me with AQo on the button - raise to isolate Nooo... AfterPunk. limps strong

Played my first session - 99 hands between 6:30& 7:30am WET Sunday morning.

Got away from this - very first hand with no reads so saved myself stacking off



And second hand of the session....



my biggest loss of the session came on this hand



but I can live with that

later on another nice pay off



I thnk I played too tight overall - my stats were 16/12 - but it was early morning and I was trying to concentrate on getting a few hands in without damaging the BR.

Ended with a profit of $2.80.

I have got lots on today but hope to get a second session in this evening. I thought I would post this first wee session to fulfil the challenge requirements in case I don't get back to the tables today.

Good luck all

I see many of you have already hit the felt - keep that motivation it up!

@5helley: You can go here and input your hand histories into the replayer. Output for forums will be generated with the link builder.

@Edin: I like how you played all those hands. In the TT hand I would have put out a thin valuebet on the river, maybe even a very small one (like some 1-digit BB number) because I think that given villain's line you should have the best hand here very often and can get called by some worse 1 pairs or even A high.

GL all!

So annoyed at myself right now. Was having a really good session up $5 and then i went and spewed off nearly 2 stacks! Going to have a calm down and maybe play a few more hours later tonight... I'll report back later on with my days progress.

Good luck everyone

SESSION 1

I remembered the Rush from the other site, so I decided to play the ZOOM
I played 50 minutes of it with 2 tables. I still managed to take notes and review hands. Some of my stats for the day (comments appreciated)

Saw the flop 16.75%
VP$IP 21.05%
Went to Showdown 38.57%
Won at Showdown 66.67%





So for my first session, I played 418 hands and won $7.40
My bankroll is now at $87.40

Here's a positive return:


Here's a negative return:


Will play session 2 later tonight

It has been a long warm sunny day in Edinburgh, Scotland...(Who could know? - in March!!).
I may therefore have had too much lunch (liquid) or have suffered slight sunstroke - as my baldie heid hasnae seen the sun for a year or so.

This is my excuse for for returning home from a long lunch and an afternoon watching the beautiful youths cavorting in The Meadows, to fire up a couple of tables and undo all that minor good work I did this morning.

BR now DOWN $0.56. Only 263 hands played which is below the daily average required, but I shall get the volume and the profit back in the groove by Tuesday.

I may never play JJ again....dealt it 4 times - net loss $1.72 - including stacking off against 24suited with Jacks....



that was bad - but the opp was not playing well from what limited hands I saw - only 11 hands but 82/0 VPIP/PFR?????

Only myself to blame - should have got away on the turn with possible sets, str8s and flush draws out there. I am taking a break and playing PSO Prem/UKIPT and watching Live Training this evening then early night and back tomorrow.

Here is my Day 1 Challenge Graph with the shocking ending.



Good luck Team 6-max!
