Default 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.



I need a challenge.

I get a penny here and there - it's like a flock of doves left and each of them pooped 1c into my account.

What the medications can't do - let Floyd do the rest.

*sigh* Used to be a good site.

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.
