      Hello and Welcome to the DaPhunk vs Kruppe Low stakes Challenge!

      In this blog, we shall both post updates of how we are doing. What is this Challenge you may ask, Let me share the main points with you!

      • We both play on Pokerstars Cash Game for 10k hands to the nearest hundred to see who can make the most profit.
      • We are allowed to play any format of cashgame using whatever BRM we choose.
      • We have split our rolls, so that I have $167.05 and Kruppe has $167.04 to start.
      • Loser has to buy one of our friends a pizza....
      • and another forfeit we havn't decided on. Ideas would be appreciated!


      This will be interesting at least for me as Kruppe plays a variety of games often with crazy aggression and plays. I shall also have the chance to potentially try out some new games That I havn't before.

      We are officially starting the challenge as of now and have till the end of September to play our 10k hands each.

      Check back later for updates!

      10k hands are too small. Make it 30k. I think you can start NL25 two tabling and advance.

      the idea is that we don't end up wasting time that we should be spending grinding our normal limits, and also that this challenge doesn't become about volume/a huge grind. and we want to finish it while i'm in england, so in the next month.

      graph for my first session:


      NL25 SH playing with 30BB stacks, 4-tabling.

      The Diamond grind is over it was actually to 7,500 SP's for the month. We are both pretty much at the target and its too close to call. (we called it even so we could go to the pub instead)

      Here is my progress;



      NL10 BSS FR. Stars roll up to $191 or so.

      You can have the looser put something in his signature for a month. winners choice :)

      I cheer for you DaPhunk, it's a shame you can't SS since 10k hands would be up in one day and the profit would be small :)

      You could have the loser dress as a fairy (you know, white dress and all), and go out and party!

      ...o wait.

      played a couple of sessions of short-stacked(20BB) PLO50 SH... here's my graph for the whole challenge so far, so 30BB NL50SH, then some 40BB PLO25SH, then 20BB PLO50 SH




      last session was somewhat swingy, +11 stacks, then -11 stacks, then finally +6 or so

      Hey Guys! I just played a session of NL25 FR full stacked. I don't think the variance at this game means I have to continue playing NL10 for the sake of losing my roll, so I might as well try and get a higher $/hand playing NL25.

      That said the start of this session was the downswing in the middle of my graph :D Some little fishies hit some sick hands against me lol. Sorry I forgot to save some for you :/

      Stars Roll is now $215 or so. Here is my graph of the challenge so far!

      Kruppe and myself have noticed that no-one seems to be interested in our challenge, so to shamelessly bump up interest in our thread I give you Kim Bauer! (aka Elisha Cuthbert)









      There We Go! More interested in this thread now?
