Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

I'll start by making an offer, contingent on an attempt.

I'd like your 250K : my 50K. Smaller amounts accepted.

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

Rules:

1) I will play all the hands. No cheating, no collusion on both ends. Any reason for me to quit the challenge that's not challenge related - i.e. death in the family, deportation, Black Friday, etc. will be ruled by ChicagoJoey.

2) I must play 500,000 hands in 45 days and turn a profit to win the bet.

3) I can definitely play 1-2 or higher PLO 6 max and 9 max. I will need a combination of the following to guarantee I have a legitimate opportunity to get all the hands in:
a) 0.50 - 1 PLO
b) HU PLO 1-2 or higher
c) Zoom PLO

3d) Urubu had also mentioned Euro tables, I don't know if I would have access to those but would like to play those if they are available to me.

Finances will be handled by those more reputable than me.

For those interested, I have contacted the Israeli Consulate in Chicago to see if I can get an Israeli passport quicker than I will become an American citizen.

Just a few suggestions for the rules:

Profit must be before rakeback.

I don't think anyone will agree to bet if you can play zoom (except maybe lolurubu). HU tables won't help you bring in big volume and might cause bettors to worry about collusion or chipdumping etc. Urubu's bet was playing the 500k hands at 1/2-2/4-3/6. Why don't you just add stakes 5/10-10/20-25/50. My guess is that you will find more bettors that way.

Would love for this to happen, gl again

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

I think taking the original urubu prop bet stipulations and using those as a starting point is going to work best

From that point you can go to your #3 and modify as decided upon

+1

I'm willing to bet as long as we have good judges/referees at 5:1

Addings Higher stakes makes a huge difference as you can just gamble it up in the end if you are down some.

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

St. Louis PLO reg here, play with OmahaDonk 4-5 times a month. I can 100% verify that this is not a scam. You guys don't know me so take it with a grain of salt. But it's not a scam. OmahaDonk is a sicko when it comes to sleep deprivation and insanely long sessions....this is probably playing a factor into his desire to try. I highly doubt he can do it, but rooting for him. And rooting for this to happen for pure entertainment!

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

OP shared some insight into possible strat for this, its insanity but its better than urubus


having stakes any higher than 3/6 makes this bet sorta dumb, if you lose 20k and need to make that back once you hit the hands, thats still really challenging to do at 3/6 after all those hours/hands. If you can go play any stakes then it just becomes higher variance but much more attainable

I think if you do this after wsop there is going to be more than enough tables at 1/2-3/6 without zoom and HU to be able to put in the volume without an issue

Not saying or implying you trying to hustle here but this stipulations have to be clear before u´ll get any kind of action and i just showed you why no one will accept the bet when u can play 200 - 10k

I was suggesting higher stakes so I could get more tables at a time, then offering a simple solution to alter the bet and not use the higher stakes as a crutch to make up losses. Namely, use bb/100 instead of total profit.

Just a suggestion.

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

At any point was Urubu's problem not being able to get enough action? I'm just wondering if not being able to get enough action is a legitimate concern or not. I didn't think it was so maybe the solution for this is just for people to convince OmahaDonk there are plenty of tables at midstakes. If he has no ulterior motive to adding Zoom, HU, or HSPLO then he will just forget about that stipulation of this bet if more people like Urubu and CJ who have done mass volume on PS before assure him he doesn't need to be concerned about PS not having enough MSPLO tables to give him a chance at completing the bet.

I think the solution is simple. You have to make a profit and have a positive bb/100.
