1,000 Hours of Tourneys in 4 Months

Hello,

After a rough three week trip in Vegas playing the World Series, I decided to start a goal here to challenge myself to put in a lot of volume and hopefully make and save a lot of money as well. I play on the Lock Network under the screen name BoangTao and I play on Merge under the screen name TheOptimist33. I might also play on another Lock skin on occasion under the name TonyRobbins. Anyway here are my goals, I will post results and graphs and such each day that I play.

Goals

1. Play at least 1,000 hours from July 12th through November 12th.
2. Play at least 3,500 tournaments during this time.

Well there it is, good luck to me I guess

Re: 1,000 Hours of Tourneys in 4 Months

Day One was a success as I played a 7.5 hour session, 27 tournaments, cashing 7, final tabling 6, and 3 top three finishes. I also won one of those and finished up $1594 for the day. Nice way to start it off!

Gratz on the great start, makes it easier to continue i guess

Yes its 8 hours a day everyday of the month but its tougher to play poker for 8hours straight fully focused every second than a "normal" job where you might work 45min a hour and do nothing for 15mins...

GO GO GO

Yeah you got that right. Played a 9 hour, 45 tournament session yesterday, cashing just 3 and only 1 final table. Was down 1687 dollars on the day so gave back what I won on the first day. Maybe a run good Sunday I hope
