      Hi guys,

      I'm Gary, most of you probably already know me!

      I'm getting into this spirit of this November Marathon promotion, however, I will not be eligible for the prizes.

      I don't play a lot of poker myself and I only recently downloaded the Stars mobile app so that I can play a little more. For this challenge I aim to play 250 $1.50 HU Hypers.

      To make this successful I need to average 8.3 games per day. This should be very, very doable I think. I have a few more days holidays from my real life job so I am going to try and get a lot of games of the way now :D

      My aim is to show a profit from these 250 games.

      Nickname on PokerStars: UPAY4DINNER

      Let's do this November!

      Headsup has always been an interesting animal. I have never put in a serious volume.
      I guess i have a lifetime volume in hu sngs of around 20 :D

      Good luck!

      HU Hyper ... oooooooh I did that.

      GL the variance is huge in those so you need either to run good or to run good or as a last resort a massive volume to be representative. :)

      in any case GL Gary

      Thanks all.

      Been a hectic day today so I didn't manage to get as many games as I'd hope in. Today we beat the volume goal but only by 50% = 12 games.

      Results:

      Won: 8
      Lost: 4
      P/L: +$7.92
      Hourly: $19.80 (coz it's balla!)
      Games played: 12/250

      Tonight I will play 10 tournaments (time tournaments and hyper turbos) as the Mrs is out and the babies are in bed.

      Good luck at the tables but not vs. me!

      Played 2 more HU Hypers in the middle of my tournament run. Won both :heart:

      Also managed to profit in the tourneys. Nothing big but welcomed nonetheless. Bricked the first 7 and then had two nice scores in 8 and 9. Beginning to really like timed tournaments.

      More HU play tomorrow!

      Thank you!

      So I've played half already, won't publish the results until I complete. Playing OK, still unsure if I am doing the correct things or not. Running above EV for all that matters after 22 games.

      Running into the occasional wizard as well.

      Enjoying myself so far and I guess that is half the battle!

      Tomorrow I have my usual big First Sunday of the Month tournament schedule lined up. So all in all, I'll have a decent amount of poker played by the weekend. Trouble is I'm back to my RL job on Monday morning and I'm going to lose my good laptop for a few weeks as it needs to be fixed up :(


      Have a nice day all.

      By the way your good laptop sounds, I shudder to imagine what the bad laptop looks like.

      Bitter sweet day at the office. Lost more HU than I won. Will have to get the hand histories from Stars because I played a lot of them on my phone!

      Update tomorrow!

      Challenge on hold guys, unfortunately.

      Had a demoralizing MTT night last night and I don't think I can face PokerStars for a few days!

      Will be at work on Saturday and will be down with my in-laws on Sunday so I will miss this weekend. But will be around for the finale on the Sunday the following week. :(
