      If @olekonjole will post his winnings, than this is "piece of cake". :f_p: (but unfortunately he is German)
      Looking forward to this and hope I will post some cashes here. :f_cool:

      That's way too humble. The Russian community is aiming to earn $3M over 2014 under harsher conditions - only >=$100 >=11 BI >=45-man MTT/MTSNG cashes count with the BI subtracted - and holding a raffle for 4x$50 cash prizes among the winners at the end of the year, and giving out signatures not at random, but to the 3 biggest winners, which is fairer.

      Bottom line: do you really admit that Russians are 3 times cooler? :f_cool: Yes, I know that they've collected only $480K so far, but don't forget that iPOPS High, SCOOP and WCOOP haven't happened yet!

      Nice idea but i still don't understand what are those signatures ? You mean some silly badges ? :D

      Common, 1million is not a joke and if you really want to make this challenge worthwhile you should give some serious prices for at least top 3 biggest winners, like 2k$ for live tourney in europe or something similar, otherwise this challenge will be nothing but a brag Thread :D

      Poker Strategy is not poor, giving away 6-10k$ shouldn't be a problem if they really want to take it serious :)

      Anyway, if i will bink some big MTT i will not hesitate to Brag in here, GL! :)

      Isn't money won at the MTT prize enough? If anything, I would give prizes to people who have posted smallest winnings, they need it the most. We are just having fun here and sure, some brags are welcome too.

      If I manage to ship anything significant I will post here, just to give my contribution towards reaching a community goal.

      I think the guideline for winnings in € is to convert them to $ using the exchange rate listed on the Pokerstrategy main page, preferably the one on the day of the score. So the net winnings above are €414.52=$573.32 (and the gross winnings are €434.52=$600.98), congrats!

      Believe it or not, it's nothing but a brag thread. As for a big prize like $2K... if their teambuilding promos are working insanely well even with $50-300 prize pools :f_rolleyes: , why do they ever need to spew $2K on them?

      2k$ was only as an example, But yeah, no one is forcing them to pay 2k$ or even 1$ :)

      It's hard to aggregate so many scores; in the Russian community, everyone who posts a score should add it to the running total and announce the new total, and that's an easier way to keep track, and also more open and reliable - it's easier for readers to spot a calculation error without having to add all the numbers from the start or rely on a mod.
