      Ok so some of you must have read my moaning about being breakeven over a large sample and was thinking of quiting poker, well I have decided to quit making it my living as I havnt drawn a wage from it for several months due to the breakeven.
      I have withdrawn all but $25 on FT so I thought while I was looking for a "Real" job I should have some fun as I know I will never leave poker alone completely.

      So It would be great if you guys could come up with a challenge for me.

      Now here are the games I know how to play fairly well...

      Sit n go's 9 man
      HeadsUP sit n go's
      6 max ring
      Full ring
      Multi table Sit n go's

      and I am a bit of a fish at Mtt's

      I can only play no limit so I would prefer the challenge to be no limit although I am open to ideas.

      Basicly im looking for you guys to come up with some sick and very challenging challenge, involving $25.

      Hope to hear from you guys soon

      remember sick... :evil:

      Maybe I could do a double my bankroll everyday for 5 days that would be $800

      I like it too.. I remember reading a similar sort of challenge on 2+2 years ago.

      The way this works best is if you work out how to get there.. totally up to you. Sick grinding the smallest limits. Totally off beam BRM. Whatever, but the challenge is to not go broke, or if you do, freeroll your way back (although, in a week, that WOULD be sick).

      You would obviously need some sufficiently motivating forfiet should you not succeed.

      Wailboy I agree, although not sure what the forfit would be.

      So the challenge so far is to go from $25-$800 in five days or $25 to $1000 in 7

      use daniel negraneaus 5BI brm. start with nl5 and move up when u have 5BI of the next limit move up. if u want to seriously make money play sss but if it is all for fun try 5BI brm.

      SH NL50 buy in for $10 and move all in every hand for 10 hands. If you survive the 10 hands cash out and do the same thing on another table. :f_p:

      You would hopefully be uncalled and just pick up the blinds, but in the event that you do get called busting AA with 7 3 etc would be funny.

      Building a bankroll on pure blind stealing would be a good challenge.

      BTW lennonac, I'm sorry to hear you might be quitting poker, you sounded like such a hard ballsy man when you replied to my posts.......anyway as a result of your announcement, a little part of me died :f_cry:

      Just going to go squeeze out that little part of me that died and flush it.

      I like the idea of an aggressive BRM challenge... like the 5BI rule on NL SH, or 20-30BIs on STTs.... turn your $25 into $1k by the end of the year...

      Thanks for dumping me out Imanacehole :D

      All good ideas, I think I am going to go with the $25 to $800 starting either later tonight or Tomorrow.
      I think I will do a mix of NL SH and sit n go's

      I will probably go with the normal speed sit n go's to try and maximize my edge...if any.

      I will have to do some sick grinding I think to even come close

      Any other sugestions are welcome

      I like the idea of moving up a limit every day lol

      NL2 -> NL5 -> NL10 -> NL25? -> NL50 -> NL100 -> NL200

      and then tell us what you got at the end of the week :D

      5bi BRM for hu sng's

      Taking out all rakeback each week for a nice little side earner

      move down when u've got less than 5 bi.

      I did this for about 2 weeks before i ended up with $2k which i found morally incorrect to gamble with and went back to normal brm.

      Its also suprisingly hard to go bust as the $2.20 games have some very poor players.
