My Pokerstar's Challenge  0   
Hey guys. Here's my next challenge. I will attempt to play 1500 $10 + $0.40 Turbo Double Up Sit and Go's within 6 months.

Game Type: $10 + $0.40 Turbo Double Up SNGs
Number of SNGs: 1500
Bankroll: $600
Time Frame: 180 days
Goal: 3000 VPPs points

Estimated time to complete: 180 hours, 8-9 SNGs per day. But I will try to complete it in 3 months.

I'll post here with some updates.

Yes very nice geneyuss Thumbs Up

Keep us updated Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

GL with that, how much are you starting with?
I played a few myself, its a diffrent game of poker(1+2$), you tend to get 1 player who goes all or nothing, and the rest tend to fold to any bets, if they call your beat :}.

Iv been trying to up my MTT game there on the 360 .10, (intend to start playing mtts and tourns)
So far im ITM 18/24 :} most being final table, lets hope i can do it when playing good players.

Ill go look see what you want them 3k vpps for


Yes, very nice Thumbs Up I just can't wait for the updates & see how it's going.

Good luck. Thumbs Up

But: 3000 VPPs is not a real goal. What roi do you want to reach with your games? How much money do you want to win?

Updates yet Question

i wish you good luck for your challange ^^
you have a good bankroll for 10$-0.40$ sit & goes i like this brm very much
so many players thought they could make 10$ buy-in s&g with just 100 or 200$

you choose a good brm i think u will make it easy
your roi u think u gonna make would be very interesting for me

Hey guys, sorry no updates, been busy with family, presents and turkey lol.

I've deposited $600 for 25% reload bonus and have a pending bonus of $150 to work off. I need 3000 VPP points to unlock the pending bonus. I've decided to wait until Jan.1st to start since I would like to reach Silverstar VIP status, hopefully I can make it with 1500 VPP points in January.

doomdy, thanks, I'll keep you guys updated.

B1gfoot, GL with MTTs, some reason I do bad in them.

Calmplay, thanks Smile Update hopefully Jan.1st.

shokaku, you're right. 3000 VPPs is bad goal because I can accomplish it but have poor results, so ill change my goal to 3000VPP or FPP points with roi 10% +, I'm hoping for.

pokerpingu, coming Smile

jessicaiskin, thanks. I had 20% roi on ipoker network, hopefully competition is similar on Pokerstars.

good luck for your challenge gene yuss...and happy new year!! Smile Blink w texas holdem

Thanks lomax Smile

Update: Figured I'd try $5.20 games to test them out first. I found antes are high so it's worth it to steal blinds more often. Anyway, I played 24 of them today. First 10, I got the worst bad beats ever lol. I didn't play many hands and I seemed to lose every hand I played whether it was a coin flip or they got runner runner straight/flush. So I only won 2 out first 10 sngs.

I went for a break and I got very lucky in the second session. Not so much in one hand but I won crucial pots when it counted. I won 9 sngs in a row. I than felt like I can win in this game and perhaps more up to $10.40 tomorrow.

So 12/24 for today.
Hours Played: 3
Bankroll: $595.20
FPP points: 24 of 3000

P.S. I'll try to do a video tomorrow. And here's one hand from today, one of the bad beats I got.


yeah good luck with your project, i dont have the disipline to take such an undertaking lol, i just had another look at your web page, i think its time you got a dot com lol.

Thats a very sick hand geneyuss omg Shock

You dont put the guy on AJ... damn very sick....

Gene, what makes you think you will be able to beat the $10er SnGs when you are breaking even at the $5er ones. Confused

Play a few hundred of those, and when you are in the black, move to the $10er.

24 games isnot much, you must play many more to know if you can beat that limit.

I think 250 or even 500 games before you can say i am a winning player at that limit.

Btw updates please, how ur doin geneyuss? Smile

GL man!

I'll try and follow the challenge Blink

That hand you posted was indeed a sick bad beat, but you know and i know, that if that player called your pre flop raise with his AJ, then he hit the best flop possible in his eyes. And you hit that flop and especially the turn as good as you could, so that's just a imposable hand to get away from.... Aww crap! Aww crap!

check my one out... My opponent was just a donk, but then there are tons of them out there

Ah, those backdoor flushdraws. They are the nuts with some softwares. Evil

But your opponent had top pair (ok we don't talk about the kicker Blink ) so you can't blame him

I dont really blame him that much looking back at the hand... but it was just a sick sick badbeat the software dished up.....

I had him so crushed on thet rainbow flop...

by the way good luck with your project Geneyuss

well, unfortunately I can't open the hand you posted, but no matter, I wish you luck for this challenge, you'll need it to not be break even, just joking, next session's gonna be better, too much donks out there to not beat them so often as you want Smile
hope we hear some updates soon, gl with silverstar too btw
