      So, I am a beginner, but I think it is good to set goals. I have been experimenting and I found that sit n go works best for me. So, I am going to play the $1.50 NL FiftyFifty sitngo on pokerstars until I double my money. Currently, I am at $23.33. My goal is $47.

      Let me set some limits for myself. If my stack falls below $15, I go and play 360 man $0.50 tourney. If it falls below $10, I play the $0.10 tourney. And if it falls below $2, I play the $0.02 tourney.

      Hey xyzgra,

      Nice idea for a challenge. It would be nice if we could double our BR every week.

      Maybe you could check out Acespeci's blog The Making of a Pro ..$2.50 180mans Turbo.

      He has been playing some of the .50c 360 mans and he's also a West Indian (Jamaica), so you might have things in common. I know he has been trying to find fellow West Indians on site.

      Regards

      Laz

      First day was superbad. I dwindle my stack to 14.29. Since it is now under $15, I will go play $0.5 360man tourney.

      I am going to take the day off. Relax and do something besides poker and comeback the next day.

      hey dude, i would say there is a big chance of this not happening ( But i hope you prove me wrong)

      Reasons being 30 buy-ins for 360player games is never going to work, and same for other game types, i also appreciate that your BRM guides are that thin because its a week long challenge,and your taking a gamble to double up.

      Either way go get um dude.

      You might be right. Now I am down to $2.49. So, I'm limiting myself to freerolls.

      Mission fail. What I will do is continue until I'm successful. My stack has been blown, so I'm playing freeroll to build it back.

      So, I decide to continue. My goal is to make $0.50 cent from freerolls. I estimate I will reach that goal by sunday.
