Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

Hello everyone It's been a while since i finished my last charity marathon. I've had a half a year vacation after that and now back with my most important marathon up to date.
Starting tomorrow with a bankroll of 66.666k and a goal of 600k in terms of pure profit, 400k of which will go to the charities. Time is unrestricted so it might end after one month with WCOOP ME top3 finish or it might take couple of years (which is not my favourite outcome ) I'll be using this charity funds only after a very rigorous analysis of data and it will take a lot of time before i will make any decisions regarding charities that will get the funds. Atm i have some favourites like CFAR - http://rationality.org/ and couple of others which i will look very closely on in next couple of years.

Funds from my last charity marathon was allocated towards AMF - https://www.againstmalaria.com/ - 2/3 of the pool and 1/3 of the pool was distributed towards variety of animal charities.

I would like you to join me at any given time for at least a week length of playing and with at least 10% of profits allocated to the charities

I started a thread on Russian forum - Gipsyteam as well and there is already 9 people joined to my initiative. Hopefully twoplustwo will compete fiercely vs gipsyteam in that regard

Didn't know Romeo really before he joined bitB staking as one of our lead coaches. Not only is he an amazing player and coach but he's also a great, great guy as is illustrated in this thread.

We super happy to have you on the team and I'll personally contribute to the charity too. Best of luck amigo

It was a Big109 on PS.fr, trying to post a pic from imgur but for some reason it doesnt work

Re: Charity Marathon by RomeOpro #2

You didn't go to Barcelona? Why the 66k figure? Does that mean you will not play the highest wcoop events? Thoughts on the 100k?

Nope. I just like that number. Nope it doesnt i will use aggro BRM on WCOOP and if things will go horribly horribly wrong i will move down to play ABI 40 or 50 after the WCOOP.
