So yeah, my laptop has screwed me out of having a good shot at this. Due to lagging and sitting out, I missed 14% of hands in levels 1-6 (when there is no ante and timebank isn't automatically used), making it virtually impossible to succeed... I didn't notice until around 6 hours in what was happening, but had to abort immediately when I did.

I ended up being just $2.86 down, which I think I should be relatively happy with in the circumstances... and it could have been so much better if EV wasn't kicking me when I was down, repeatedly, and to the face....

I'm attaching 3 graphs. The first is a straightforward profit by tournies played... The second showing BBs won vs BB expected won... and the third is chips won vs chips expected won...

You can see that I was running massively below EV on both chips, and BBs... but the big problem is really noticeable when you compare the two graphs...

The BB graph shows I was expected to win 1,172 BBs, but only won 198.... in isolation it looks bad, but when you look at the chip graph and notice I was expected to be up 11,172 but was actually down 141,000.... it gets worse.

That means, despite having bad luck throughout, my luck was worse when the blinds were bigger... when it matters more.

With this, and the laptop issues, I'm amazed I'm anywhere near even...

Well, considering the circumstances, I would say that you did really well! I'm confident that if the problems with the laptop wouldn't have occurred, you would've been well into the green!

Mate that was a row of bad luck but you cut your losses

Some times the online game suffers from the technical problems that makes a guy want to climb the walls Aww crap! Aww crap!

When your server or internet provider gets down in the middle of a winning hand Aww crap! Aww crap! just feels like to break the computer smash the router Angry Angry

Just get really mad Disagree Disagree and then few minutes later it comes again and you are sit out and your bankroll decreases Sad Sad

Thank god this does not happen to often Thumbs Up

Since i am not a multi table player If i understand when you were sit out you had no signe when it was your turn to play and your hand was folded.

So you lost many hands and probably winnings one plus your computer problem i understand why you stop the challenge when you noticed it. Its bad having loosing time trying it having to stop. However it did not cost you much and i am sure you will come back with another one an be successfull. Thumbs Up

are some ahk( autohotekey ) and free of charge , just download them from 2+2 . is just enough to make a gooogle search and you l find them : timebankstars1.02.ahk ( this is for autotimebank and sit back in ) and personally i also use nr. of tables , wich allow me to see all open tables ( number) to know to add more tables or just a info.

so good luck in find them is not very complicated to set the timebankstars

Why the downvote? I'll upvote it. This is a fine tip IMO. This could turn out to be very useful for multi tablers. Maybe check it out yout, before your next challenge.

I write some ahk scripts from time to time; they can be great timesavers.

There is free program (alternative to Table Ninja) called Table tamer. Its really fine piece of software and it does lot of things Table Ninja do for 75$/year. Auto timebank, auto sit in, hotkeys, preset bets, layout....

Hey Host... Yeah, I'm aware of those programs but took a decision not to use them as I knew I'd be pushing my laptop to the limit as it was... But as Marqis says, it's a great tip Thumbs Up

Never heard of that one Jovica... I'll check it out sometime.

I dabble with script writing too - chances are you won't find a program to exactly suite your needs, so sometimes custom scripts are essential.

Well this is tough luck, if you do not have the hardware to play and when the hardware crashes down it sucks because you have to start somewhere i know people who play on crap laptop who plays with no poker software as they do not fit in their software but they do play as later they upgrades and crushes , so bad luck to you, i know your pain mate, anyway have fun at the tables and good luck hope the laptop does not crash again!

Try Table Tamer. Just set up it properly and it will work like a charm

Could anyone explain to me how I can run this auto-timebank-script?
I find lots of informations and lots of scripts but I have no idea where I have to put them in etc..
Tried Table Tamer but it causes some lags on my computer, so would prefer to have just the script for auto timebank.

If it's an ahk script, download and install AutoHotKey. Then double click the script with the ahk file extension. That should be it in general, not sure if this script is any different.

According to this topics header he aborted his challenge due laptop issues. They aren't magazine issues, they are laptop issues.
On a more serious note he is either busy with his life or he don't have many spare time to hang around in the forum. We will find out soon i guess.
