      Im gonna start the challenge the 15. this month. And it will end the 15. april, which is 90 days.

      <100$ = 1:2.25
      >100$ = 1::2.75


      The challenge will be like this:

      I need to play 1 mil hands between the 15 january and the 15 april. I decide for myself whether i move up or down in limits.


      My nickname is heutragly, and i will be grinding it on pokerstars.


      Add me in community tool or ask for skype details.

      Also setting up a justin.tv stream the 15. when i start.

      Super sick challenge, I followed your last one so will definitely follow this.

      I may be interested in betting against you, how much action are you willing to take?

      Will there be an escrow?

      Webcam/livestream setup?

      Not sure how much u are thinking about, but i've put some random numbers up. I think 1k$ will be max i can handle atm.



      Will there be an escrow?
      Yes i think there should be, actually. Maybe w34z3l if he wants. I'll ask him.

      Webcam/livestream setup?
      Unfortunately i dont have a webcam. I guess i could hang my tablet on the wall? :D Its like 144p or smth.

      Also, out of curiosity why do you have different odds for different amounts?

      And lmk if you get a confirmed escrow

      I would really love if i was confident enough to bet on ending in the green. But im afraid it would hurt my game when i play, if i have that in the back of my mind.

      U interested? Just lowered the odds a bit.

      avg h/mo is probably like 30-60k last last year.

      Its kinda new to me to play 100k+ hands pr month.

      December i grinded smth like 60k hands.

      Life time im not really sure. But its over 1 mil. Maybe way over.


      After donking in multiway pots to fishes and donkeys, and bluffing bigstacks deep on nl25, im back to nl10 once again. And probably gonna stay there this hole month.

      What limits/game will you be playing ? Under what circumstances is the bet going to be halted/canceled, i.e what are the rules?

      Thanks

      FR NL10. Under no circumstances can the bet be cancelled. if my inet doesnt work, its my problem. Or if pokerstars gets stuck, its also my problem.

      Maybe we can individually talk about some buyout cancels.

      Okay so all bets closed. Not that it matter since noone wanted to bet :coolface:

      I am going through the challenge, and then im gonna bail out, so everyone can see they should have made a bet :D

      Honestly though, i will try to get to 1kk in 3 months. But since i havent been putting volume in the last months, it will be a hard grind.

      Im gonna try to aim after 13337 hands pr day. Then there should be room for 10 days of breaks if i need it. And i guess i should still have time for watching stuff, and reading stuff everyday also.

      GL at the tables! And if u raise my cbet, im gonna PUNISH YOU.
