Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

I guess urubu's conditions are good... just ask to add PLO50.
Wouldn't agree on HU but don't really care about zoom.

Surely just do exact urubu rules? If omahadonk wants to offer an alternative line it's fine as it's up to others to decide whether they'll be happy with it. Urubu rules though, as I remember the last issue urubu had in the challenge was volume, wasn't he comfortably ahead of volume by the end of the bet?

not everyone is urubu. not everyone is born for the massive online grind, and prob very few are live pros...
not accusing OP of anything here, but i´m also quite interested of how this ends.

I call bull**** on a live player having $50K to their name.

^^ Literally couldn't disagree more. Don't wanna derail so will only make my point once but most decent live regs are more likely to have a bigger roll to their names for a lot of reasons (I'm referring to most live pros who play with 100% of their action). *important to note saying bigger rolls, nothing about poker skill*.

You're more likely to have an online guy having $150k online with a $170k net so they can play 25/50 etc when it runs.

You call bull**** but you wouldn't make a prop bet on it either right? It's not uncommon for a live player to have a 50k upswing in a single session.

lol some of these live pros playing in vegas during wsop buy in for $10-20k and they are straight up awful. Obviously the games they play are juicy enough that many of them are doing just fine.

Tons and tons of live players have way more than 50k to their name. Some you won't even know to be a pro unless you hang around Vegas long enough to realize they have to be there working.

My city has a SUPER juicy 1/2 PLO home game that runs 3-4 nights a week for 8-12hrs. One of the crushers in our city regs this game just because it's so soft. He'd easily have 250k+ to his name (24yo), exclusive live player.

There are some absurdly soft life games out there that let players run up massive rolls.

Yes still working on all aspects, I wouldn't expect this to get underway for a few months, and definitely not without any action booked.

I did hear back from the Israeli Consulate as a backup option for leaving the country (Israeli passport), it doesn't seem difficult to obtain.

Silly. The richest players are all live players. You must live in Kansas or something.

12k hands per day is VERY EASY???? What am I missing? I have played PLO on stars for 4 years and I don't think I have played 12,000 hands of PLO in a day yet. And I 8 table zoom a decent amount... Let alone playing 12k hands for 45 days straight every day without a break. Yikes.


This challenge is impossible.

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

not impossible to everyone...
pretty sure joey could make it. some other grinders also...
but it must be soul crushing to play that volume for such a long time.
I guess what urubu lacked was a proper mental coaching preparation.
He would have saved alot of money if he would have been able to deal with the swings by focusing on his game instead of spewing the remains of his roll flippin.
Just my 2c

u know u can enter Canada for up to 6 months at a time under a tourist visa right? and ur about to give up on becoming a naturalized Canadian citizen in favor of an Israeli passport because.... it takes too long?? something super fishy about this.
you can also go to various other countries around the world under working holiday schemes and get temporary residency status (assuming you are under age of 35). process an take anywhere from 7 days to 3 months depending on the destination

Re: OmahaDonk 500K hands in 45 days

Joey just take a month out from podcasting/raging and do this so we don't have to get leveled by the next 100 people to try LOL

tbh OmahaDonk i dont see how you can just expect to have not played online for years and walk into this... im really thinking you must already reg stars

but saying this if you get trusted middleman ill chuck 1-2k on it.

I didn't know that and will look into that. Thanks.
I've never lived in Canada. I think I've been in Canada 2 or 3 times.
