Self Imposed Challenges  0   
Hi Guys,

These challenges certainly seem to have caught people's attention so I thought I'd see if there's a way to ramp up the incentive for these.

Obviously I can track progress for this so there's no cheating and false claims so my thought was this.

I will award a prize (suggestions please) for the person who successfully completes the challenge BRM members decide is the hardest.

Post your challenges in here and include starting balance, timeframe and goal.

I haven't really given this much thought so I'm throwing the rules and guidelines open to you as to how we run this (nothing like getting other people to finish up your ideas is there Blink )

Cheers,
John

i suggest to put a time limit (something like 3 months)

people can post their challenges ITT and how they do. after the 3 month we can have a poll (also people who did not succeed can be included in the poll. lets say someone tries to cash 10 MTTs in a row and makes only 9. that would impress me more than someone grinding 10 $ to 20 $ successfull for example).

prize suggestion: make a 1 $buyin private tourney. add 1$ to the prizepool for every participant. give the top 30 % after the poll free entry. first place should receive in addition a secret, funny, superprize.

agree completely , a challenge as playing some MTT's and being in the prizes in all of them would be a nice challenge and would impresse me a lot more also than going from 10 $ to 50 $ in 1 day !!! as about the reward , fantastic idea also ! Thumbs Up

I think 3 months is too long and MTT is kinda boring to play and since most people tend to play cash games and SNG's, its better to go this way.

Here is my personal idea and what I think is best. Smile

In my opinion the best time frame will be 4 weeks, thats 28 Days, its kinda enough, not too long and not too short.

About the challenge itself:
-I think SNG's are way more interesting to follow and play as a challenge, too.

What about taking a limited number of SNG's, which are allowed to play within a time frame of 28 Days?
- Lets say 500 SNG's, thats an average of ~17 SNG's a Day. I think its possible for everyone and you dont have to play every Day, for those who go to work or having other things going like university. With 2-4 tabling its very easy to master and not too hard to handle aswell, even for beginner I think its possible. And there is a weekend where you can take a few hours more, so that schould be all fine.

What's my thinking behind the idea of a limited number to play in a time frame of 28 Days?
- I think everyone is annoyed of such challenges, where ppl start from xxx amount and are supposed to end at a xxx amount of money. Just boring, isn't it?
With a limited number of SNG's, you have first of all to make a strategy and think about every step you move forward, otherwise you will waste your SNG's and fail to improove your Bankroll, because when you reach 500 SNG's, its over!

It keeps a lot of actions and fun, because you can actually reach any goal, if you do it the smart way. In this case, the best will win for sure..

I would say the starting capital will be 10$, since the NDB is the same amount and everyone is able to participate in it.

An overview of all rules:
Time frame: 28 Days
Game: SNG (no matter what you play, NL, PLO etc...)
Limited numbers of SNG's: 500
The Goal: You have to make the best possible profit with a limited number of 500 SNG's in about 28 Days. When you reach 500 SNG's, or 28 Days passed, its over and your reached amout of money is settled.

What do you think about it? Smile

PS: I will make a tutorial or a video for everyone, how to improove your multitabling skills, if my challenge will be taken. Of course only if enough people show interets about mutlitabling, my skills are good for up to 40 tables. I used to be a professional gamer, thats why my mulitasking is good. Big Smile

Ok so as i said $50 starting capital

$1.10 SNG 6/10 seaters turbo/reg whatever

play 500 show profit/loss

no time limit its a race!

ok so im gonna start this when john shouts up and lets me know when they accept uKash as i lose money in fees otherwise, so next week by what john told me

I will run a report after each 10 initially depending how i do each day this may increase or decrease.

at the end i will ask john to verify i have played 500 SnG games consistently and also that i have not uploaded funds and that everything is above board,

anyone who wishes to join the challenge please state so that we can all start at the same time.

let the fun commence! Cool

As people will obviously be at different levels and diferent bankrolls a point race would be a bit one sided. reaching a personal goal should be a good target! maybe posting your target (needs to be assessed as to the dificalty) and achiving it should get you entred to a play off or entred into a poll for a vote from BRM members.
It wouldnt be to difficalt to asses a player using some tracker programs (as long as you have a poker history)
I'm up for what ever but im trying to think about a challenge i can do using the start up $10 knowing i only get to play once or twice a week Angry
for about 2hours... Sad
