    That's not too bad Alan. Costing you just over £2 a game. One FT & you could be in profit.

    A cash/few bounties/a run of games I make profit in would be a start. A FT is all but a faraway dream. I am, however, adopting Brentford as my team to follow in the Premiership this season... ;)


    What could possibly go wrong?

    How is the Challenge going Alan?

    Hand below is from the 1st level tonight. Sums up how the whole sorry thing is going...sigh.

    Ooof.
  • MAXALLYMAXALLY Member Posts: 15,169
    Finally into treble figures.....albeit negative. Going to take a break from this challenge now, as not having fun playing at the moment. The beats are getting harder to take. Hopefully come back refreshed and finish it off with a bang in the final 20 games.

    Still on a mini break from this challenge, but now wish I did it as a 55 x £5.50 MTT challenge, rather than just the 'MINI'.

    Last night's £5.50 Megastack Result.....

    ...at least that makes a dent into the recent losses ;)

    @MAXALLY

    Good stuff Alan, and that was, by the standards of £5.50 MTT's, a tough FT.

  • MAXALLYMAXALLY Member Posts: 15,169
    If only I did a MEGA Challenge. Back to back wins.....not too bad I suppose ;)

    Nice win Alan, I noticed you were down to a quarter of a BB with about 15 remaining so to come back to win was quite an effort. 👍

    Just like buses...

    Well done.

    It looks like a break from the Mini's was a wise choice. Only played tonight after getting into the Main for £5.40 and thought I may as well go for the £5K Jackpot ;)

    The Main came off the tracks but the Mini stayed on the rails and I was close to my 1st FT in this challenge. It was a turbo cr4pshoot tournament, but I will take this as a small victory....

    oioi, the comeback starts here.
  • MAXALLYMAXALLY Member Posts: 15,169
    Got into the Main again for £5.40, so played the Mini again. Main was my normal result with zilch returns. I however nitted up to 7th in the Mini. So nearly got a mention in Tikay's thread ;) . Decent attempt at a comeback so far.....it will never last.

    At least the end of this challenge is in sight. Even if it might take me the rest of the year to complete it.

    Keep plugging away Alan, your luck will change eventually.

    Hi @MAXALLY ,
    We saw the swings and roundabouts of bounty hunter poker tonight in the mini didn’t we. Some interesting play to say the least.
    I was unfortunate, then lucky and that repeated itself again on other tables after ours broke.
    I managed to take a head prize calling a SB shove, I was a dog K9 v K10, but that’s poker.
    Hope you manage to claw back some profit from the last couple of games of your challenge.
