      I've signed up. I bet durrrr is already quaking in his boots at the prospect of playing me HU. :f_ugly:

      EDIT: Is it just me, or does durrr actually look a little bit like that fish smiley?

      EDIT 2: And how many r's are there in durrrrrrrrrr anyway?

      I think it's too difficult to complete all 4 challenges. Having said this and looking at the bigger picture, it really is a brilliant strategy by full tilt to attract more traffic to their site.

      To the legend that makes it across the 4 slippery slopes and manages to play durrrr himself - from my side good luck!

      from what I see it can only be +ev.

      1) Register
      2) play your A game

      you got nothing to lose, after there will be so many entrants that it will be like a lottery or rather like a huge player pool tournament :)

      This. Just don't go shoving 50% of each 500 hand block to try and make your 500 leaderboard chips for stage one. 0.o (this clearly doesn't apply to you, jb LDO).

      I also have a question about the Durr challenge. I am not sure about the rules of the ring games. There must be at least two players dealt in the hand and flop must be seen. But does two things need to happen same time? For example, I am BB, I have three limpers before me, I raise and just one calls. I defeat him postflop. Does it gove me points for the challenge?

      Funny how one guy was at #1 yesterday with nearly 3000 points. That's seeing a flop and win the hand against on average 6 people in the hand 500 times straight. That's not EV, that's EB, "expected broke".

      Yeah yeah yeah. But knowing FTP the $1,500,000 will be deducted from rakeback. :rolleyes:

      :D

      Good point. Totally not worth it then.. you wouldn't get rakeback for, like years - at least.

      I don't think I'm going to make 500 chips ever playing 6max, even in PLO.

      I have 480 atm, so it's obviously rigged.

      On FR you can get at most 500 x 9 = 4500 points, if you play every hand on a full 9 seated table and see a flop with every hand and win.

      The page with standings was down for a bit a few days ago, "to check the score of certain players". It was up again yesterday, but it's very hard to believe 2900+ is a valid score.

      Maybe he got 8 friends to check/fold every flop with him ?(
