      Hi guys, encouraged by Vhallee's interview I decided to start this challenge;

      -I need spending money for Berlin
      -$1k would be nice
      -05.09. is the deadline
      -Yesterday I deposited $50 on Full Tilt, played NL10 SH for 20 mins, 3 tables


      I decided to play on FT because I had only $3 or so left there so it'll be ideal for a separate roll for that purpose. FT gave me some $100 reload bonus, so that will also help. I'll use aggressive 5BI BRM only in the start, and will try to stick to recommended 20 BI BRM onward.

      So right now my roll is @
      $83.15
      FTP's 1868
      unreleased bonus $100; releases in $10 incr. $0.06 per FTP

      :s_thumbsup:

      Hello guys, here's an update, so far i played 2,3k hands on NL10 SH. I had good run in the beginning so i managed to stay alive with 5 buy ins which is great. Players are easy, lot of bad regulars who bitch a lot about my opening range. I had some guy who complained on me opening A5s from UTG, doh. From now on i don't think I'll be playing less than 6 tables...

      BR:
      $117.58
      FTP's - 2057
      bonus - $90 remaining

      Hand of the day (yesteday):

      $0.05/$0.1 No Limit Holdem

      UTG Logan70 ($10.55)
      UTG+1 petojutka ($16.44)
      CO Satin_Man ($8.83)
      BTN unprovoked ($20.00)
      SB Hero ($21.65)
      BB prince_lapin ($23.19)

      Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is SB Q Q
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, prince_lapin raises to $1, Hero raises to $3, prince_lapin calls $2

      Flop: 6 7 9 ($6, 2 players)
      Hero bets $6, prince_lapin raises to $12, Hero goes all-in $18.65, prince_lapin calls $6.65

      Turn: T ($43.30, 2 players)

      Final Pot: $43.30
      Hero shows: Q Q
      prince_lapin shows: J A

      Hero wins $41.30 ( won +$19.65 ) :f_love: ship it
      prince_lapin lost -$21.65

      but then when he didnt r flop, your turn play is very inappropriate.. u re scaring him off so much, u should b small again, or c/c, c/r ; or c/c, donk small river to induce shove depending on his agression, bluff, wts tendencies..

      well, i guess i was too excited to think on turn. i'm pretty sure i missed some value, but not that much...

      btw, for some reason HM doesn't display right to me on Full Tilt, its importing ok but table manager doesn't work, or it displays only first few hands.. or it displays HUD only on half of tables. :s_mad:
      i better fix it somehow

      Hello everyone, its been a while, but the challenge is still on, luckily :P


      First, there's some bad news. for example, this :


      As you can see, first I ran great, but now like shit most of the time.
      Losing all flips, running into aces, you name it.

      However the good news is that last night I decided to play, out of boredom, $75 token satellite. So I risked $14+$1 and , ofc shipped the token, like there was any doubt about it. Then I realised that token can't be converted into cash, so I "had to" play a super turbo sat to 750k gtd and shipped it too, of course ^^.



      So anyway, not sure what will I do now... maybe I'll continue playing NL10, hopefully this downswing will be over soon... :)


      br @ $24 + T$216
      bonus left $60

      I'm having some problems logging in my ftp acc. haven't played for 2 days now.

      Since I installed the new update, the software only runs for a couple of seconds and then it simply stops responding.

      I can maybe type in first couple of symbols in the password field and then it blocks up. I suspect it might be related to ffdshow, but I tried to reinstall both codecs and FTP software, nothing helped.
      If anyone has a solution to my problem please post here

      Hi earp,

      I had similar a while back, but luckily for me a complete re-install of FTP software did rectify it.
      Sorry can't think of anything else off hand to try, but hope someone can help and posts quickly as that sucks :s_mad:

      Good luck buddy,

      have you tried emailing support?

      by the way, off-topic, just to be 100% sure: you're bringing a wifi router to berlin, right?
      (also, don't forget to send an email to / skype fulex to confirm you're coming!)
