      Hey everyone.

      Today I got an email saying I was superselected to get a special bonus at Everest Poker. If I can get 3000 summits points(SP) before May 31st, they will give me $300.

      After some simple mathing, I accepted the challenge. Being cocky confident in my SHNL10 play, I deposited $250 and started playing.

      Rules:
      - I need to get atleast 120SP/day to complete the challenge.
      - I cant go broke. :f_cool:

      After two hours (one session) I was up $68(redonk!lol), and 127.93SP/3000SP.

      Wish me luck. :f_pleased:

      127.93SP/3000SP.
      Challenge completion 4.2%.
      Challenge bankroll $318.
      Days left of challenge: 25.

      This looks like a fun challenge. Good luck with it. It will be very profitable if you get the bonus AND make consistant profit while playing.

      Gl mate!
      At this point I have 451,75 summitpoints. (Ive played since the last update. :f_biggrin: ) I have played 3257 hands. Assuming averages thats roughly 7 hands per summit point. Average 21.000 hands for the whole 3000 points.

      With my current SP standing my needed points per day has sunk to 111SP, from 120SP. So per day I would say about 700-800 hands. Ofc it could be more or less, depending on how much rake I pay.

      So far Ive been doing double of what is needed each day, and if I continue at this pace I will be done long before the bonus expires. :s_evil:


      I think its going to be a profitable challenge. I currently run like a god even though I'm $30 below EV.

      Thanks for the comments. :s_love:


      p.s.: Anyone else got this redonk offer?

      I had it but I found it not really interesting on Nl50 SSS (or Nl100+)

      Maybe you will get it in the future, I got the $75 for 3kSP about half a year ago, and did not take it. Better not give up hope! :f_wink:

      I got the same bonus, but I can hardly clear it on 2 tables (nl25sss, I cant handle more with my actual monitor...), how many tables are you playing on?

      I play 6 tables SH, or 2 tables HU.

      I have a 24" screen though, it helps, alot.

      Hi Vargan,

      Try not to let bad results deter you too much, if you keep playing well the results will show, people that are tilt prone seem to suffer in a vicious cycle, they suffer some bad beats so it causes them to tilt, which leads to playing bad thus losing more and tilting even more.. etc. If you try and brush off the bad beats n not let them affect your ability to play then you should be ok..

      If you can't do that then a days break shouldn't harm you too much when clearing that bonus, as you are already ahead of whats needed daily to clear the bonus.

      Wish you the best of luck!

      Regards,
      Sarah

      Uhm, not a good day today.

      Some RL stuff made me unable to perform A-game style.

      Need 115SP/day now.
      14 days left.

      got the $75 for 3k points offer first. did it.
      then got the $300 offer like you but didnt take it coz i thought i would move sites.
      then now they offered $50 for only 500 points. already withdrew my BR but might redeposit a little just to experiment with BSS.
      the amount of bonus has something to do with your VIP summit club status i think.

      Hi Vargan, i wish you luck, i think you ll made it, just play your best game, i also got this bonus and cleared it in almost one week, playing NL25 - NL100 SH and NL100 - SSS, it was quite easy to do it...;) and additional i got (i think you will also) 50$ monthly bonus, so even i didnt make a good profit (donks were lucky :) :) +22$ only + 350$ was OK, so in 10days + 377$ playing only 2 hours per day is a good profit / per hour in general. :s_cool:

      Its a riddle. :f_biggrin:


      BR at $115, grinding it out on the $5 SNG's.
      Need to play 36x $5 each day to complete the challenge. (Atleast $16 in tourneyfees each day.)
