It would be more +ev to quit now, move up to his regular stakes, and start grinding some of all that money back.
sounds about standard for these bets. its about halfway that they give up/buy out. it just cant be motivating at all when u are this far behind.

TheLoon needs to take more bets so that he can have the willpower to succeed.

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

I really wish when i did my challenge I went to a doctor to get something that could just make me pass out at night, not sure if he is goin through the same thing but i actaully slept <20 hours in thefirst week and played about 100 hours, it becomes such a huge burden when you arent properly rested. ALso he really needs more volume hten thisto win

No need for a doctor my man, just hit up your local street pharmacist. Valium or Xanax, FTW. Although I'd probably say Valium in this case since it leaves the brain less cloudy the next day. $5/day and you're golden for grinding.

Not an option for WCGRider more than likely, that doesn't go down in the ol' US of A.

Agree he's not getting enough volume in: average 6.5k hands per day doesn't seem much. Is the Everest interface really slow or what? On Stars that's only 6 hours of poker if he's 12 tabling. Whatever, I wish him luck, and I think a day off may be just what he needs to get his head in the right place - out of his arse!

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

Obviously we need to convince Intrade to list propbets so you can always get action up until the time they finish.

It would be fun if something like that was plausible, I guess there just wouldn't be enough volume. For a huge prop bet like Leatherass' possibly. Mainly because it'd be fun to see a market-determined probability of the bet being successful. "Oh, Leatherass's recent heater took him up to 70% to win the bet. Uh-oh, that downswing near the end has him down to only 5%".

TheLoon took a day off to spend time with his gf. I dunno about you guise, but if I could win $100k and I've got $40k of my own money at the line my gf would say: GET THE F*CK BACK BEHIND THE SCREEN!

Also nice for his backers: OH HI I'm 58 buyins behind pace but I'm taking a day off bai.

someone should do a similar challenge but at the lowest level possible. what's the lowest cash nlhe on any site, 0,01$-0,02$ or something? then just set a sick goal for winning a lollarious amount of buy-ins in a month and start betting.
