Official double person prop bet: Both 8,000/4K/month (See post #1 for odds/escrow)

MOD EDIT:
Final Odds 2.5:1
IN NEED OF ESCROW IF ANYONE CAN STEP UP




Myself, Luke Usher (Pokerstars screen name:L_Usher87) and Toni (Pokerstars screen name:sicklopedia) are betting that we can both complete 8000 games of $2.50 180s on Pokerstars and be up at least $4000 in profit by the end of one month. We both have to complete this otherwise you win the bet, so both have to complete 8000 games and both have to make at least $4000. I've never heard of a prop bet where more than one person has to achieve the same goals, which makes this very challenging

Rules

1) 8,000 $2.50 180 mans must be played in one month beginning at March 1st 0:00 GMT and ending March 31st 23:59 GMT, along with a profit of $4000 must be shown during that time span for the bet to be considered complete.
2)If either person has played 8,000 games but is under $4000 in profit, they can continue to play in the allotted time until they show at least $4000 in profit.
3)Only the $2.50 180 man turbos on Pokerstars will count towards this bet. Rakeback or bonuses of any sort do not count.
4)The bettors will not be allowed to play in our games unless its their regular game of choice and buyin.
5)Should Pokerstars discontinue these games or seriously alter their playability (location restrictions or game amount restrictions) the bet will be halted and a panel of judges agreed on by both parties to decide how to refund bets.
6) If either person has a medical emergency unrelated to the normal stresses of playing this amount of volume or a family member or close friend dies, the bet will be halted and a panel of judges agreed on by both parties to decide how to refund bets.
7) Only games under L_Usher87 and sicklopedia, both on Pokerstars, will count.
8) Both L_Usher87 has to complete 8000 games of $2 180s in a month along with $4000 profit and sicklopedia has to complete 8000 games of $2 180s in a month along with $4000 profit for us to win the bet.

The bet will be 3 to 1 in our favour. E.g. your $300 to win our $100. Looking to put up about $5000 in action.

Looking for escrows for this bet, please post good reputable escrows we can use.

Seems pretty hard, but you are both fairly accomplished in these games. Might be tempted.

Minimum bet?

Sicklopedia did a 2,000 2/180s in a week challenge which he seemed to complete with relative ease at the end of 2011 FWIW.

RE: OP:

Unpossible. Unless you're both robots. Or colluders. Or angleshooting. Or the same person. Even if you're both the same person, it seems improbable that you could juggle two copies of Stars to do this. GL

re: Official double person prop bet: Both 8,000/4K/month (See post #1 for odds/escrow)

Hey guys, im Toni Lu aka Sicklopedia.

First of all, i'd like to introduce myself and my previous 2k Games /1week bet. Im definetly not the best reg at the 2$s, but i've already played 2000 games in a week. I had to play literally every single game that started from 5pm to 2am (CET) to archieve that goal. It costs hard dedication to put up this amount of games, and when i ran bad, i nearly lost my mind. This bet is a whole other level of dedication. Playing 8-10 hours a day will cost everyone of us a hard time and lots of motivation. Luke is a really good player, but tbh noone of us has ever played that amount of games in a month, and noone of us ever profitted over 4k$ in a month. I think the bet is pretty fair, since we both have no experience doing smth like that. Its about 250 games of 180man a day, and could lose the bet probably by just missing out a single day. Grinding that much will def. decrease the roi and therefore the profit per game. Another thing is that we BOTH have to archive that 8k games and if one of us doesnt make it the bet is lost, thats pretty important to point out. I'm scared of missing out a day of playing, or variance hitting one of us into a downswing... stuff like that are unpredictable. Im glad that there are people who can make 4k$ with 7k games, but just to speak for luke and me, we both averaged about 50c-70c/game in Sngs overall. We are definitely not the best players thats why it's so challenging for us. I just decided to go more professional on the side of poker for 2012 and in my eyes it's a good challenge/motivation for me.
I can only speak for myself here, but i will only do this bet if we get enough bettors to cover at least 10k$. About the relation between me and luke: I know luke for about 2 years now. 1 year ago i was grinding 16$ STTs with him, since then i've been taking a break from poker for a whole year. I've never met him in Reallife, or talked to him over voice, we are definitly not roommates. Im from germany and he's from UK.

Im happy to be back at poker, and im looking forward for the exciting probbet

Good luck everyone in 2012,

Sicklopedia
