I recently read abt the challenge team online pro aCOIMBRa undertook..stripping himself of SnE title coming down to Bronze and then trying to convert 100 $ to 100000$...some zeros there...pretty baller to say the least ..

So coincidentally it happened that i saw him start his challenge...nt a good first day for him as he lost 30$ playing 90 man 1$ turbos..second day he went to more lower limits of .50 cent 45 man...here's where i come in..i have deposited thrice on stars ..i lost my original 2 bullets to cash games...then my last and final deposit was a 10$ from a friend..i started grinding 1$ 45 man non turbos and ran by bankroll up through them...playing a few tourneys in between i made my bankroll into the higher 3 digits...nw that i see a pro coming down and doing what i have wanted to do for a while and going to start a parallel competition with him...HEALTHY COMPETITION...he is currently at 75$ after day 2..so am gonna myself also start with 75 $(don't want an unfair advantage of 25$ on him :P)

So am setting 75$ aside for this challenge..So let the games BEGIN

Very interesting goal jdsaz. I'll follow your progress and all the best of luck to you. What happens if you end up doing better than the pro? A change of careers possibly?

nw i started with manually registering the Sng's ...what i noticed was turbos fill up pretty quickly than the standard sng's... i am okay with multi-tabling fairly easily up to 6 tables so registered until i had 6 on screen and registered another if i busted some..

this was just a trial run so stopped registering after i registered 10 45 man .50$ SNG's

wasn't the start i was hoping bt cant do anything when ur queens don't hold against rag aces thrice for huge pots pre FT on 3 different occasions...also thr were certain spots i was frozen cause i did nt know what the standard line for a turbo event in that spot is...am pretty sure in a non turbo those spots r easy folds bt less knowledgeable abt turbos...will come back to this later

so at the end of 10 sng's i only made 1 deep run for second cashing for 4.35$... investment 5$ return 4.35$... net loss 65 cents

Nw before going ahead i will tell u a thing i do as a kind of habit...whenever i cash a sng or tourney i transfer the non integer part of the cash to my friend..reason being that is how i create my bankroll to play sunday events..looks small bt those cents add up by the end of the week and u can play a few bigger sunday majors with them..on sunday i take them back from my friend and play the tourneys :d

so current bankroll-74$
sunday grind br- 0.35$

switched to 90 man 50 cent turbos for the rest 10 ended up playing 12...same 6 tabling

ran better in these and ended up cashing in 4 of the 12 events for two 7th places ,a third and last SNG 2nd

total cashes 16.6$..profit 10.6$..2.6$ of which go to sunday grind BR


so current baankroll-82$
sunday grind br- 2.95$ (see the cents add up )

I actually like this idea although instead of transferring to a friend, why not just change it to a currency that you don't use?

Good luck for your challenge.

i haven't ever used the conversions..do they charge a commission in between..if that then i don't want to bleed money currency changing,,,also does the money get converted to T$?

also i did a small 10 SNg session...as usual unlucky close to FT in some spots...last SNG was sick..AA KK QQ all cracked in a matter of 15 hands..and last hand AK cracked by AQ aipf..oh well...at least i shipped one

here r a few doubts i faced...would be happy if someone helped

1)guy showed AQs bt still feel i was knit here
http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...191_4334CA9942

2)is this the correct way?
http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...274_D0CD303B2E

3)if that was mistake i guess i rectified it this hand ..same opponent
http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...289_7C5FA1A39B

4)i did tell u right my queens never hold right?
http://www.boomplayer.com/en/poker-h...305_A9F0567BE7

5)was going for the check rasie option,,what to do when that fails..lead turn?

Nice progress so far. Hands two and 3 were good to watch. Just will say that the villain had an extremely wide limping range. 3 5 and 8 10 from his position should have been folds. I think you played all the hands great. Only thing I would have done different is lead out on hand #5, a relatively small amount, in hopes to build the pot and set up bigger bets if I hit one of my many outs.

Don't know if this helps at all. GL!

I haven't thought about fees but it's always a gamble playing the currency exchange because the rates move up and down. I'm now doing as you are and changing anything in cents to CAD after every session. I'll play the Sunday Storm when I get enough in CAD to do so.

I've emailed Stars asking BTW and I'll get back.

Thank you for contacting PokerStars regarding our exchange rates.

PokerStars' exchange rates are calculated by adding 1% to the mid-market rate, provided by Reuters:

http://www.reuters.com/finance/currencies

PokerStars waives the 1% margin when the currency conversion is used for playing the games, meaning that our exchange rate is effectively the same as the Reuters mid-market rate. PokerStars also waives the margin for deposits and cashouts made in US Dollars, Euro, British Pounds or Canadian Dollars.

For deposits and cashouts made in other currencies, PokerStars waives 0.5% of the margin, meaning that the exchange rate is effectively equal to the Reuters mid-market rate, plus 0.5%.

Note that PokerStars provides multi-currency features for game play. We reserve the right to apply the full 1% margin retroactively where the features are not used for this purpose.

All exchange rates are updated on a regular basis throughout the day.

For more information about Multi-Currency features at PokerStars, visit our website:

http://www.pokerstars.com/poker/real...ulti-currency/

Please let us know if you have any other questions and thank you for playing at PokerStars.

i still haven't still got round the concept of donking the pot..its actually sometimes a very good way to make ur opponent do wht u want them to do..let u draw for cheap or make them raise their ace high's...will have to work on that

plus the smallest help is also very much appreciated
