Yeah, come on, you can do it!!!

Are you cashing out the rakeback too? If I were to start the challenge again I would probably keep my rakeback/bonuses in the bankroll so I could move up quicker. Plus, the rakeback/bonuses lower the swings as you can cash in fpps to stay at the higher games longer so you don't have to move down. Like, if I just made the $30s, I would cash in a bunch of fpps and be able to play more games there before having to move back down.

Haha, good luck ado!

I also would say it's best to include $ from FPPs just to smooth out the variance a little. Would be cool to see you crush these games also.

Hey adohole, nice to see you’re doing this challenge! Best of luck and keep us updated, I’m very interested in how you do.
Btw here is a great video from Grayson "spacegravy" Physioc about short stack play http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...-Series-Part-3 I basically started my grind with just this video. Hope it helps.

Best of luck!

Good luck ado, I think you could do really well at this. I really like your idea to save the fpps for when you have a big downswing. It's good to have a bit of a backup, especially since these games can be quite high variance at times.

heey guys thanx for all the support and ibeko i think i watched all spacegravy vids at least 10 times they are amazing. will do a smaal grind now have played 80 games stuck 6 buy ins but its a nice comeback after 20 games i was down 16 buy ins always fun to start with a downswing.had a string of 7 3rds in a rowi knew it would be swingy and much bigger swings will come but nothing helps to get you of your feat than a downsing at the start of a chalange will just keep grinding away. have played 2 and 4 tables just to get a feel agian will be 6 tabling from now maybe 9 tabling in the future

Good luck buddy, it's always a good idea to get the tables down to begin with until you're happy with your game, and then increase again.

GL adohole,

I played about with these and they are fun, fifi"themaniac"cat will surely help you through any problems cos he is a sicko in these "ment in a good way" - to climb up the levels quicker dont forget FT also have these, although 10bb structure, and you can pair your accounts and transfer moneys over easily, its what i did when playing these and you can climb up levels quicker.
Just wanted to bring it to your attention, plus at the lowel levels FT has rakeback, wich in my opioin and others is great for these mass volume games.

Well done man. Your achievement is even better as you managed to do it even after watching my confusing video.

We will have to do a teamviewer session this week where we go over some hand histories together.

Those $3.50s are coming up for you. Just remember, like I said on skype, don't overtake me on your road to success.
