Re: #MillionClub - It ain't cheese if it's less than a mil'

Thanks everyone.

I want to give a few details of what happened over the last couple of days.

First, the sprint finish. Basically, in order to catch up to MouldyOnions at the very end, I had to play $60 hypers as well. This was pretty tough and I ended up 50 tabling. If you look at PS steve updates I was getting 6k vpp an hour. This is completely insane, if you cough you are done. (It cannot be compared to tabling hypers in the past because PS has changed the time to act and other rules so it is much faster than it used to be.) Also, I think I had a log file thing too, or something similar. I lagged out of 30 tables with 2k vpp to go. I was very flustered, lol.

In general, for high-count tabling there is extreme stress induced on the body, I think my practice with exercise before hand has helped me sleep and play more comfortably (and feel less anxiety) even though I am still getting used to it. I probably sweated an entire bucket through my hands over the last couple of days -- talcum powder, gloves, and many towels didn't help.

I am happy for this challenge and for MouldyOnions in particular because it allowed me to test myself at the hardest level and rise to the challenge. If you had asked me 2 days ago when I would get SN, I would never have guessed now. Also if no one was close to getting first SN, neither of us would have played as hard.

More updates later but just wanted to throw this out now

Sadly the reward is worth **** lol. SNE race should be fun, that reward could be worth quite a lot for you if you can punch out days like this.

Re: #MillionClub - It ain't cheese if it's less than a mil'

grats!

Out of interest, how much do you think it costs you on average per time-out in a $200 hyper? I have this issue with playing 20+ games since timebanks are so brutal and have to think its fairly disastrous to your ROI in the late stages at least for that game.

Do you have an expected ROI goal in mind? Rakeback comes to 1017200 if im correct so you expect to break even pre-rb? Seems a tough ask to actually break the million.

What do you think this does to your overall life expectancy? Cant be many comparable jobs. (Serious question)

Could you and mouldy and whoever else is doing mega numbers just all agree to unblock ss together as that will get you a tonne more attention/updates and what you lose in pressure you should gain in other areas? Would be great for the sng community as a whole too.

OP you are my hero for even attempting this, I think i'd end up wanting to kill myself going for a single SNE attempt, eight in one year and you will be a legend forever

Daily vlog and graph would make this thread awesome. Wouldn't need much insight. We are just curious of physical and mental state. A simple "my eyes are bleeding and hands can't make a fist" would be just fine.

Wow amazing great accomplishments so far Alex and gl.

What do you spend FPPS on? I know there is no rake back on poker stars or at least there wasn't when I used to play before Black Friday. has this changed? I saw you talking with JDAWG about pre-rakeback and rakeback earnings .........how do you get rakeback or where does the equivilant come from?
