      Hi guys,

      I have been grinding steadily at 50nl for a few months, and during a banter filled discussion with a couple of poker playing friends (also members here) i was set a 50nl challenge.

      My bankroll one week ago stood dead at $1,500. My challenge was to double that in a week, playing only 50nl cash games. Tournament winnings could be added, but any loss to my roll suffered from tourney's would not be ignored.

      Sparing the details of bad beats and suck outs, i was at $2,234 when i started playing today (my final day) at around 5pm.

      At 23:42 my Q10 vs J9 on a Q T 8 Q board took me over the finish line with 18 minutes to spare.

      I thought this was a pretty cool achievement and wanted to share my experience, and maybe find out if anyone else had tried something similar. (not recommended)
