Re: TheLoon's challenge: $10k on 25nl EVP

The key difference between this and WCGrider's attempt is the attitude of the players.

From what I have read, TheLoon is more focused on achieving the target and less so on becoming a 'legend'.

It will all come down to how he adapts to playing these stakes. WCGrider failed to play even standard ABC poker which is all that is required to beat these levels at a decent winrate.

Good luck. :-)

Too bad I can't take any more bets, all my funds are allready taken by the bets so I can't cover any more.

If you can't read, you will never be able to beat NL200 anyway.

Is the bet 6 max or full ring? What is standard abc poker anyway? Can you type a short paragraph so you can show me how to beat 25nl to 50nl lol. I'm playing 6 max btw.

They are many people ready to bet against him if they can get action, so instead of making a statement, make an offer

Re: TheLoon's challenge: $10k on 25nl EVP

12 tabling 6 max is like 1000 hands a hour.

12 hours a day, 31 days... 372000 hands = $2.68/100 needed e.g. only 5.36PTBB/100

Would advice so take enough sleep and breaks and go outside though. Better to play your A-game for 10-12 hours a day than playing half-dead for 18 hours a day imo.

Nooooooo I'm not trying to put you down I believe it's possible but how do I do it? When I'm playing 25nl or 50nl it's not like they are stacking off so easy.
