My challenge is to start with 50 buy ins for .50c heads up and move up each level one by one on full tilt and poker stars...

Hopefully before the end of the year I will be playing up to $15 heads up sngs...

Rules for my challenge....

1.) Only play heads up sngs NOTHING ELSE.... excepetion, if I win seats to mtts with points earned/ freerolls... freerolls and ftp or fpp tournaments or sngs

2.) I must have 50 buy ins for each level to move to the next... if I lose I ever drop to 40 buy ins for the next level I must move back down...

for example I have $50 for $1 heads up sngs and I drop to $40 I must got backto playing .50c heads up sngs

3.) Every Month I must play a minimum of 500 games

4.) Have Fun because poker is fun for everyone

I will end this challenge at the end of the year.

The main goal for me in this challenge is to reach $15 heads up by the end of this year.

I wrote a really long post about my first day in this challenge but my internet locked up when I finished and tried to post it

I called my ISP or whatever you call it and they helped me fix it but I was still really upset because this happens alot...


I guess Ill make a short and simple post to update my progress...



One day into my challenge and I'm moving up to $3.50s



I binked a 100k freeroll! How sweet is that! Thank you Poker Stars for giving us good promos!

Whoever said freerolling is waste of time is crazy!



Also I got two tickets for the SCOOP events by participating in the WBCOOP! What an awesome promo thanks you for that!




Well anyways before this I played 76 games of .50c heads up sngs and was one buy in lower then breaking even.. I think I won more games then I lost tho but not enough to beat the rake...

I think I played "ok" but not as good as I should have.


I'm really looking forward to moving up now that my bankroll is $298.36! It should have been $10 more but I sent two people $5 each.


I was going to jump straight into the $5 sngs and drop down to $3.50s if my bankroll went $200 below but decided not to play those yet...

I remembered there is a promo running on poker stars called Haxton's Happy Hours where if you play heads up sngs you earn vpps %30 faster and maybe you get to play Ike Haxton heads up to win a ticket to the Saturday Duel.

I thought to myself this will be great because my fpps I collect while playing heads up sngs on Poker Stars I can use to satty into Micro Millions events as well!

Thats not the only reason I decided to play $3.50s tho I think it's alot safer for my bankroll...


Well that's the simple version of my original post... Theres alot I wrote about in the original post about my WBCOOP events but I decided not to write about it again.

I have four more events for the WBCOOP series but tomorrow is all heads up sngs!

Nice bink! With the volume you are able to put in I can definitely say that you'll be at the 7's by mid April!
But take it a step at time...



Good luck!

Well I played some 3.50s a mix of hypers, 4man shootouts, euro games, and pounds games and 3 $2.87 heads up satellites to the Saturday Duel.

When I won my seat to the duel the first try I unregistered and used the tournament dollars for the $10.50 heads up super ko mtt instead..

I figured this was a better tourny to play because in the duel there is no bountys and it's a much smaller field.

Well I played it and only made it to the third round. The first two matches I was able to adjust my game before it was to late but the last match I didnt adjust as I should have.

I won my buy in back... but also lost two more satellites to the Saturday Duel.



So now bankroll is is upto $351.58

That means I have 50 buy ins for $7 heads up!

Im going to give the $7 heads up sngs a try and see how I do playing turbo and reg speeds depending how I feel but no hypers or 4mans unless I'm well above 50buy ins.

Im really excited and cant wait to see how things go!

If I feel things aren't going well before I drop to 40 buy-ins for this level I will move back down to $3.50s

Also I am over half way through my monthly minimum of games so I might have to change that to something higher like 1k games a month minimum to push myself and get more experience.
