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.

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!

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


Edit: played some HU and got to $100+

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

Small challenge is over.

The Pokerstars UK May offer is too hard to ignore.

New challenge is on.

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