Just pubished an article on an italian poker website about your challenge: I feel like you deserve it, what you did is definitely inspiring.

Also, you are a ladyboner IMO, which makes you even more of a sicko: congratulations

Congratulations on your SNE! Your video updates have been wonderful, hopping that you won't delete them and might make some new ones, as the topics you choose are so relevant and your comments are very insightful.

The legend enters my thread! Curious what you use in terms of gunners/f.lux or anything for reduced eye strain. 200K games I assume you're stacking?

Ty for the article, PM me a link and I'll see if google chrome can translate it.

Bigger thanks for the ladyboner comment. That one will stay with me.

I'll make a PG&C thread for 2014. I would have done so already but I'm still putting thought into what I want to accomplish this year and beyond. Likely I'll have some goals but also be willing to adjust as I go. Either way I'll make videos

"Ladyboner" might be my next euro-site screenname. Still kinda partial to "IStuffTens."

Either way, happy to have a social life again.

Yeah apologize for the delay guys. Drinking and eating restaurant food and stuff for the first time in over 2 months knocked me out a bit. Did a lot of laying around and my energy levels have been a bit sporadic. Video is below along with some results.


All told, I made almost exactly $70,000 in the 70 days it took me to complete the challenge. Here is the breakdown.

Results

Start 571,311 VPPs
Finish 1,000,025 VPPs

VPPs earned 428,714
FPPs earned 2,357,927

$1600 bonuses earned = 23.58 = $37,728

500k bonus = $3,200
600k bonus = $3,600
700k bonus = $3,800
800k bonus = $4,200
1M bonus = $20,000
Bet Bonus = $20,000

Milestone bonuses total = $54,800

BOP Bonuses = $1,880

WCOOP ticket = $5,200

Golden SNG 1x $100 4x $60 = $340

Pre-rb results = -$29,953

Total results over 70 days: +$69,995

It's kinda hard to put that in a graph tbh. My best attempt is looking at what I paid in rake over the challenge ($77,948) and the amount I made in bonuses from SNE, other promos and the Bet ($99,948) and treat this as if it was 128% Rakeback. That graph would look like this:



The above is basically what I made by doing the bet and getting elite vs not doing the bet and not getting elite.

Just looking at my results for the period assuming there was no bet and it's just 70 days in the life of a 2nd year SNE would look like this



Then if you add the bet there would be a 20k spike at the end.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion

Thank you guys for all your support. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for 2014. Been thinking about it a lot. Once I have a slightly more firm plan I'll make a new thread and hopefully you guys will follow me there. I've debated everything from 3x SNE to giving up SNE (and SNGs) completely. I know this is the skill set that I've worked on for years and I could put in my volume at a dollar a game and have time to study and make that number a little higher and table select across stakes and put up good numbers for 2014. I just don't know if that's what I want.

I always idolized Phil Galfond when I got into poker. He ran up through the stakes in SNGs, jumped into cash and became a crusher. Granted the games are tougher now, but there are still opportunities for those who are willing to seize them. My roommate is playing live PLO in Asia and sending me hands with people getting in 30K on the AJ8hh w/ a 6high flush draw. Us hyper grinders, we work hard, but idk if we're working smart. Idk if I wanna look back and say I played poker in my 20s and this was where I thought the money was.

I think I'm good enough to study, improve and do well in hypers, and I think it's the most profitable thing I can do right now and over the next year. I don't know if spending the next year of my life focused on that is the best for me in the long run. If I go on a massive heater next year I might find myself never considering switching games until a downswing in 2016 and I'll wish I did today.

It's a dilemma that's been on my mind a lot as I'm trying to make a plan of action for next year. I'll likely start out with a loose plan and adjust on the fly. I know I'm willing to work hard and that I can find a way to balance these factors and continue to be happy, successful, and most importantly to me, an inspiration to others to do likewise.

Thanks again. you guys.

I wrote a bit more about the right time to walk away here if anyone is interested.

Re: TheDrunkLife SNE 2013 Propbet thread, 430K VPPs in 73 days

awesome job BIG GAME JAMES! didn't know about the challenge till now but went back and traveled thru and it was pretty awesome and VERY inspiring. Definitely a cool way to document it via VLOGs too.

My only quasi critique (which has been a big problem for me too until lately). A few times (Day 40 for example) you use '******ed' in a pejorative manner. Personally I am making a big effort this year to not use 'gay' or '******ed' or any other terms stuck in my everyday vernacular that really don't belong there. Obviously, I don't think your a bad person for doing so as I've done the same for most of my adult life. It's just something to think about and potentially work on.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor!!! GL in 2014!

also, I LOVE BUDAPEST (been twice but only for 8 days combined), hoping to take my wife there in May, if you are still there I'll get in touch!
