Somebody ought to make a 5k in 15 days challenge so we can get to the fail faster. Besides these things are usually decided by the second week anyhow.

Good luck Loon! There's always a way! Still very hard to do though.. Especially multitabling 12 6-max tables on Everest, which is hell... still.. i wish you all the luck!

7k hands/day isn't much for 12-tabling.. increase volume & energy drinks and you can still make it...

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

Yesterday was a bad bad day, hardly any profit. On the dutch pokerinfo site, a member made 2 graphs that show the progress so far. U can check it out at: http://www.pokerinfo.nl/Topic860161-....aspx#bm862163

On average, TheLoon has to make 377$ a day.

GoGoGo!

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict he doesn't make it.

Day 12 ~ $1470 behind pace.

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

Sooo I guess that means he has to win something like 15-17 buyins every single day. I'm sure we all have had days when we have won something like that (around ten for me ), but to do it every day? Dont think so.

It would be more +ev to quit now, move up to his regular stakes, and start grinding some of all that money back.
