      Hey everyone!

      The MicroMillions are just around the corner, and I plan on playing for sure! But I'm not the only one playing, so I have a little prop bet with a couple of guys. Of course this is all for good fun and not for a ton of money, but it still gives us all an extra reason to perform as well as possible.

      I'll be using this thread to keep track of the progress and keep everyone updated.

      If anyone else would like to join in on this, just let me know and add me in the community tool so we can discuss things! :)

      We have a bet on a number of things:

      - Number of cashes
      - Biggest cash
      - ROI

      And here's a list of everyone I am competing against and the things we're betting on.

      Musher1993
      - Biggest cash
      - ROI

      tommygecko
      - Biggest cash
      - Number of cashes
      - ROI

      metza
      - Biggest cash
      - ROI
      - Longest survival in events we both play (bet over whole series)

      3prswins
      - Longest survival in events we both play (bet per event)

      Musher and tommy will have this same bet against each other as well, so it should be interesting! 3prswins is in on this as well as far as I know, but have not yet had the chance to talk details with him yet. I hope he joins though, the more the merrier!

      Here's the schedule of events I'll hopefully be playing. I might have to remove a few of these and maybe will add a few. This list is 30 events, all NLHE, and after removing/adding a few it will probably remain a list of around 30 events.

      code:
      18/07 - 18:00: Event   1 - $0.11r $15k  [Hyper Active]

      I can confirm now that 3prswins will be in now as well. Just have to discuss details with him.

      Also, metza decided to join in on this as well! :)

      Would join in but I'd probably only manage 5 tournaments in the whole series :(

      Sounds like a good opportunity to bet on # of cashes then :coolface:

      Too bad though :( But I wouldn't do it either if I'd only be able to play a couple of tournaments.

      Too bad I can't join. I will only be playing all tournaments on 20th Saturday, which amounts to 6 tourneys :( . This is an awesome idea though will be following

      Ah, that's too bad.

      I'm glad you like the idea though (for which I have to give the other guys competing a lot of credit!), and awesome that you'll be following :)

      Would like to join but can't.. Busy schedule (non-poker) this month and could only play about 5-6 tourneys. Anyway, this is a good idea Tino, Micromillions is something that most members could afford to play and it surely is fun to have prop bets like this within the community. I'll join next time. Good luck to you guys.

      Thanks for the kind words spreeboy :)

      If you have other things to do in life, I'd say those are probably more important than doing a prop bet ;)

      Discussed details with 3prswins. Since he won't likely be playing a lot of tournaments, we're betting on who survives longest in tournaments that we're both playing.

      Might something we'll introduce to the other guys as well :)

      Oh wow, that's unlucky :(

      Yep, this is also just for a bit of fun. Of course we don't intend to take massive amounts of money from each other.

      This thing starts tomorrow! Looking forward to it :)

      Haha, we'll just have to see about that :f_biggrin:

      Nice to hear about your voluntary work though. It's awesome that you do that and it's a good thing you're willing to give up some tournaments for it! Definitely keep that up :)

      I'll definitely be following with interest. That way I'll know who to avoid in the home games. :f_biggrin:

      Cool, looks like we won't meet at the tables then ;)

      Added another bet with metza for who lasts the longest in tournaments we both play. We won't bet on every tournament, but rather on who survives longest most times.

      First post updated. Also, the ROI + Biggest cash bet between tommy, Musher and me is a 3way bet. Just wanted to make that clear :)

      First tournaments are tonight. I'll probably have to late reg for Event 1, but fully plan on playing the other 3 events from the start.

      The bet is on every tourney that we both play right?
      Do you wanna exclude rebuy tourneys or not? I think it is probably a good idea to.

      EDIT: Actually lets count rebuys cos otherwise we're only playing 7 or so of the same tourneys. :)
