      What a sick sick achievement.

      Hours played: 648 (about 50 hours per week)
      Tournaments played: 70,997 (I play hyperturbo SNGs which last about 8
      minutes each so I can play as many as 200 or more in an hour)
      Hands Played: 836,402

      Yes, satellites to Sunday million and other high buy-in tournaments. (500 starting stack, 25/50 blinds if I remember correctly)

      Thats what he is playing... I bet he has a lot of T$ for trade :)

      Like I said, you get $ for 3rd place, T$ for 1. and 2. place. And you can use the T$ to play same satellites over and over again.

      ... yeah but if you're a winning player, the $T would build up, since you'd be winning more than losing, jorj has a ton of of them... i've talked to him :P

      Nope.

      Let's say he has 10 000 T$. He registers for 100 hypers. He uses 8800 T$, so he has now 1200 T$. He has 2% ROI. On average he finishes about :

      36 times first/second = 7740 T$
      17 times third = 1496 $
      47 times 4th-6th

      Now he has 8940 T$ in his account and 1496 $ in his account.
      8940 T$ < 10000T$

      o.O that would mean he earns like $800/hour. that's sick.. which means he earned over $420k in 3 months.. That was actualy less then i was expecting.. Players like Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Patrick antonius can earn that in a month with alot less hours. But it's still an amazing accomplishment

      You gotta remember that it would be easy for those nosebleed players to lose $400k in a few hours too. Where as with the SNE he would struggle to lose that much in months :)

      true, but I think a player like ivey has a higher hourly rate than 1bb/hour at nl100k.

      8940 T$ < 10000T$...


      first where did you get those numbers from?

      I just know he used to sell them in bulk to sites that needed them.

      From playing same games with him, checking his sharkscope stats, averaging numbers, him saying in 2+2 he doesn't sell T$.

      ah ok his sharkscopes unblocked now :) . I just remember there being a thread on 2+2 about him having gotten screwed over in a $T sale to some site that needed them or something. but this was from about last summer, so maybe he doesnt anymore, or maybe are from other satellites not the $88's, so sorry about that :)

      Yeah, he was selling W$- those could only be used to buy into live tournament satellites.
