Small challenge after cashout.
 
I just cashed out all of my poker monies, except for $79.28 at PokerStars.



I need to make 632 FPPs to release a $140 bonus - expires 1st July.


I need to make another 5000 FPPs to release a $250 bonus by 14th August.



I am going to try to turn 'mostly' non-min-bet $79.28 into $1000 by 14th August.



Other than this thread, I'll be back either when I make it, if I busto, or if 14th August arrives. :P



I need a challenge.

Sounds like a good challenge, what games do you plan on trying this with?

I want to improve my 8-game, so I guess mostly NL HE and PLO cash. I'll also play more SnGs, and maybe HU SnGs too, just for clearing FPPs, as I won't be able to clear many at micro-cash.

Playing for almost 1/4 of your b/r in one hand is kinda fun! :P

P.S. I am not playing proper b/r considerations in this challenge!

medhopz May 07, 2009 9:10am

im going to join you in this challenge
cashed out and have 90$ left
i have no bonuses
i will be playing 2$ HU SNG to 100$ and from there a mix of 5$ HU SNG and 1$ 27 sng, try and get a good score for the battle of the planets.
if that doesnt work 2$/180 till 200$. and than 10nl
good luck to me (:

MikkeD May 09, 2009 4:54am

Mmm... this is a bit rock and roll......

Got up to $145 on Thursday, and then crashed back to $105 at .5/1 8-game (playing for FPPs). Decided to play a $50 HU PLO8 SnG to get back to $150 (don't try this at home folks! *hic* ), but failed, so down to $50. Would have probably played another $50 HU if I had the money left, but had to settle for a $22 - won that - back to $71. Goodnight Thursday! :shock:

Made it back to $93 tonight playing more sane stakes - well mostly anyway - some 20c/40c 8-game, short-stacking $25 PLO8 and a couple of HU NL HE.

Now at 2512 FPPs - 459 to go before I release first bonus (actually nearer $150 than $140 - exchange rate messed up the full $150) - if I don't busto first. :P


P.S. I keep reading the current UK promo, and wonder if I should abandon this challenge and reload. :confused:


Edit: played some HU and got to $100+ :smile:

P.S. 2 - the UK promo looks too nice to avoid... :cry:

MikkeD May 09, 2009 8:31pm

Small challenge is over.

The Pokerstars UK May offer is too hard to ignore.

New challenge is on. :shock:

Reload, and hopefully 60k - 70k extra FPPs by the end of the month, and take it from there afterwards..
