WSOP 2019 Challenge: 100k profit from April 12 - July 15 (if successful, 50% being donated)

2P2, whatssss upÖ.I have a feeling this summer is going to be wild and Iíve been wanting to do some type of Vegas trip report for a while. I figured why not throw in a challenge and something meaningful to help motivate me. 100k profit from April 12th - July 15th and if successful, 50% is being donated to 5 organizations (10k each). Iím going to choose 4 and let 2P2 choose the last donation.

About me (31)

Iíve been playing poker since the days where Sklansky bucks and grimstarr graphs were what mattered. Thanks to the poker boom, I was playing poker when I could make more money than a doctor playing 100NLÖ.. it was ****ing ridiculous. I was one of the first card runner members and longtime 2P2 supporter. Since the boom, Iíve probably played ~10m hands lifetime (~85% NL max). Since BF I basically did what every other American player who didnít leave the country did. Play Bovada and ACR. Sketchy as ****, but Bovada has been very good to me and Itís definitely been the best option since.

Poker has been so good to me over the years and provided so many things for me that I feel like I need to give back in form of donation and thoughtful poker discussion in this thread. I feel like Iím hoarding information and I want to help others with their game. Iím planning on doing session write-ups & hand discussion in this thread and chip porn & tournament updates on twitter (https://twitter.com/PunnyYouSayThat)

Iíve never played more than 1-2 WSOP events in a summer because I hate the variance tournaments offer and Iíve always preferred the consistency of cash. Iíve always stuck to my bread and butter, but this year is different and I plan to play 10-20 events, the main and start at $5/10 - $10/20 on the side. Bellagio? Iím not sure where Iím going to play yet, but if anyone has any suggestions for a good 5/10 & 10/20 game, Iím all ears. I also plan on being aggressive in moving up and if I have any kind of decent mtt bink, Iíll move up to 25/50, 50/100 etc)

Some honorable 2P2 threads

Welp, day 1 of the challenge is starting nice lol.... 1/5 in the $50 and 32/80 in the $30. At the end of every playing day I plan to recap and update the challenge status. My play this month might be sporadic because I'm still adjusting to Vegas (just moved here from CA)

another second

I've played a bunch of 500NL/1000NL on WSOP.com the last few days and after everything, I'm -$2,459 for the challenge. I underestimated the 1knl regs and had to make some adjustments after getting melted for almost 8bi (1knl) right out the gate. Got most back, but the 1knl player pool is not soft so I'm going table select 5/10 and grind their 500nl pool. For live, I decided on starting at the Belliago 5/10 ($1500). Since the player pool is so small on wsop.com, I probably won't talk too much strat, but I'll definitely post interesting live hands once I start playing at the Belliago.
