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

such a dumb idea

try to actually get good at poker so you can win a million not counting rakeback

you will end depressed and pissed off about wasting a year of your life because of "money over everything" and other stupid BS like that.

I think there are two points that you have entangled.
1. Psychological effect of keeping x buyins online is a poor reason
2. Ability to handle big downswing is seriously in question

I feel that #1 is a weak point and #2 is a legitimate point.

With #1, it's not just for psychological reasons, there are practical reasons. On any given day no matter what the result, I can never be in a position where I am not overrolled for a game. Because I have to play every day. And because if I am not overrolled, then there is some legit risk of busting my account, and it is hard/clumsy to deposit a lot at a time (maybe you need a bank wire or something, I've only ever deposited with CC.) Realistically I don't want to deposit a lot / find it hard to deposit and that's part of the reason why it is a psychological advantage for me.

With #2, I have never had a big downswing. Even playing HSMTTs in the past where I would "downswing" big, that wasn't playing on my own. Maybe jdawg is ready for a 100k downer but I honestly don't know if I am considering its 100% my money and considering it's never happened. My hope is that I win enough by then that it isn't so bad.

I think its not that much tougher wrt the stake, but I think it also requires a lot of effort to study. (Obviously the higher the stake, the tougher the game is)

I feel there are 3 separate points you made:
  • Real poker allows you to win 1m w/o rb
This is the most resonating point. You are correct, but this is just the way the cookie crumbled. On Jan 1st 2012 I would have eg. played MTTs if I had more money, and cash games if I had slightly more money, but I didn't have enough to spread onto X different sites as necessary. Realistically, SNGs were the best option in terms of making money, that's why I played SNGs (which at the time I knew 0 about) rather than MTTs or Cash (which I knew way more about.) I headed down this SNG road long enough that I am sort of stuck in it. There is a cost to learning new games.
  • Hyper SNGs are an inferior flavor of poker
This is just something we have to agree to disagree. If PLO is the game, I will play PLO. Or 5 card plo, or open face chinese, or poker with 1bb stacks, or whatever. I just happen to play the game I feel I can win the most at. I don't think any game is intrinsically more or less stupid than another, I think they are all pretty stupid.
  • Wasting a year of your life
I agree that this goal isn't ideal, and it is a poor choice at best for things like being happy and etc. So it is in fact "wasting one's life." I don't really have a response to this point but I agree in the sense that you mean it in.

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

I think the likelihood of you not experiencing a 50k+ swing during this challenge is almost non-existent, and you're probably still an underdog to never have a 100k+ swing, so you should prepare for that .

Any more info on the videogame? Got a kickstarter or something?

GL with this

Thanks, I know these risks and I have run sims. -.-;;

No info on the videogame, sorry -- not really allowed to say anything on it. I intend for it to be extremely popular. The closest thing like it in terms of core gameplay is probably Sirlin's "Codex" game [but his game is intended basically only for hardcore players, and probably won't have the sort of "rounding" necessary to be a super popular game.]

I initially thought we would do a kickstarter after a meeting a long time ago. After review, I agree with the team and our inclination is that we won't do it (costs [there are many indirect ones] outweigh benefits) but that we will also review that decision in a few months.

If you are really interested in eg. being a beta tester, maybe email me [alexwice at gmail]. There will be a beta in stages (eg. stage 1 100 people, stage 2 1000 people, stage 3 10000 people.) But even stage 1 won't happen for something like 4-12 months (depends how fast other people work on it which I don't know. I wanted to say 6 months but these things are often slower than they seem they should be. Sometimes I get surprised too though.)

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

Maximum respect 4 u if u can pull this off! I truly believe this is humanly impossible but human limits are broken every now and then and you speak logic in every post so I will def be rooting for u. Esp since it doesn't look like there's any action on this

I wud lead the charge for an official A Wice day to be incorporated on the day u finish this if u do manage to. GLGL

Also, somebody asked about expected ROI/hourly. You must have calculated it all out. Cud u give us a rough estimate assuming all works out?

Sick, will be following for sure, but I think you will reach your goals, given how you represent your mental image.

Haha, "phantom" was/is still actually a good idea but a 5 man team [especially with money] is much better than a 1 man show. I'm suprised you remember, that was just some random idea I had many years ago.

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

How many hours/day is this ?

GL but I think this is insane and imo a bad idea, and extremely bad for both your physical and mental health. Money isn't worth that much.

I mean obv you're not going to not do it because some random people on 2p2 tell you it's a bad idea, but yeah.

Anyways, GL if you do go through with it.

Not sure if this has been mentioned already, but how many sngs do you think you'll have to play to reach 8m VPPs? Are you going to play 6m Hypers exclusively?

If he is going for 1m in January, as he stated, he should hit SN in about 3 days
