$108 Bankroll set aside for this Challenge

Target is to win a further $108/ i.e. double my bankroll, to enable me to do 4x $27 WCOOP Deadline Sats.

I am going to play various games, all SNG and MTT, but that's where the plan ends. Max buy-in $11 (which is to allow for special exceptions), but will be doing much smaller buy-ins to make the pennys stretch that bit further.
I will post tourney i.d. as I register events.

P.S. As insurance, I have pre-reg'd in 4 x WCOOP Deadlines, so in the likelyhood I fail this Challenge, I'm covered.


My first task is to watch Celina's Fifty-Fifty video again in the Library- I have already re-seen Spacegravy Early Stage SNG, and I will be watching the others in his series. Also there's a Johnny Lodden one I spotted, to view at a later stage.

Wish Me Luck

Thanks Raiser!

A great start to this, hopefully I can average overall approx a $10 profit a day (tall order, but possible), to keep this on track

Target $216, starting with $108

End of Day 1

Start B.R $108
End $122.50

Watched Celina video on Fifty50- she does a good - no great- video- shame I can't apply the knowledge

I'm biffing it up with the big boys in the Bigger $33--I won a ticket through a micro rebuy!

Let's hope I can get this to the final table!!

a good top 27 cash could get you to your $208 target.

Remember there is no rush, and use pot control to avoid early all ins with flips

Going to try the Sunday Storm and Sunday Millions Sats, along with the reg. sats

I'm being far too aggressive so I need to pipe down....

Update on Challenge B.R. $124.22

I have been playing sats and sits, and using this challenge to learn something new as well...namely Fifty50. I am just not applying the pressure at the right time, i.e. too early, and getting caught on marginal hands mostly, plus those dreaded so called bad beats.
I am going to persevere with them though, even though the rake isn't too kind on the pocket, it won't matter so much when I am doing better at them

This mornings Summer Challenge of Zoom didn't "clock up" on their stats,, don't know why? I won the hands at showdown.....made sure of it!

962779334 $0.31 (-.31) sat
962785445 '' (-.31) sat
962793082 $1.50 (+1.89) Fifty50

963391930 $2.50 (-2.5) 45 man sit
962212010 $2.20 (-2.20) SS Sat

So, back to where I started !!!!!! ok 24 cents up!!!!

B.R. $108.24

If I took out the Fifty50 things would be sunnier, but going to stick with the plan for now, and try and just concentrate on a sample of these games.

(I'm down -$16.15 playing the Fifty50's so far.)

Best result to date was a good run in the $4.40 Progressive KO - 471/6358 for an overall $18 profit.

More videos on Fifty50, plus other vids to see,,,I can do this!

If anyone apart from me is reading this drivel, and can pass on any morsels and juicy tips on Fifty50, I'm all ears

Update on Challenge

I have had a few computer issues to do with (software issues) application memory on OSX Mavericks (wish I could go back to Snow Leopard, but it's irreversible).

This has meant I haven't been able to run my HUD, Poker CoPilot, while Pokerstars is also running....

So I have no records to show, but the $108 went busto yesterday unfortunately

However, I did win the $7.50 Deadline into WCOOP-01 $109, but didn't run good.

I am still in my WCOOP Deadlines that I previously entered, so if I do any good I will update on here....

Good Luck in WCOOP everyone

Update

It's WCOOP-13 Day today!!

And I'm having a crack at a $7.50 Rd 1, and I'm also in the $27 Deadline, for this $100 +$100+$15 Progressive KO ( which is too rich for me to enter directly)

Hoping to improve on my best progressive result of a fifth place finish.

So wish me luck, and to anyone else having a go..Good Luck to you too!

Update 2

Somehow I have turned 35FPP into 2,500FPP by making into Round 6 of the WCOOP Mega Path main event sat in 3 days time

The first game was a Hyper I think, the others were Turbos

You're not wrong there!

Next one I have entered is WCOOP-19, a $7.50 Round 1 plus the $27 Deadline--just in case I don't get through Round 1

And the WCOOP-20 $27 Deadline
