Halfway there.
3878 hands
-19BB

I'm getting used to the fatigue, and still playing the 10/20. Although I'm still not making much progress in terms of $$$, I still feel I'm playing a decent, B-ish game. One friend is still in a rut that he began the challenge at (about -100BB at 2/4) and the other is about +30BB and now playing 6 tables of 2/4. I have also decided to play 3/6 if I end up moving down as well.Having no bathroom in the basement really sucks, and makes for some quick urine runs.

I'm halfway done but its definately not downhill from here.

Hour 15
4778 hands
+61BB

I've hit another level of fatigue. My head hurts from too much sugar/caffine and quite frankly I'm getting bored of playing.

The rest of the way is not going to be easy.

What were Bison's original rules for an ADHOC challenge?

I feel your pain bro!

I couldn't handle more than 10 hours i reckon. I think i'd probably take a day off before one of these challenges so im hyped up to play.

Guess you've no bonuses to clear whilst doing this? PokerAlliance? no?

POKhER.
p.s. Take a ten minute break to walk around, you'll get pressure sores [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I tried searching for the thread but came up empty. The "rules" involved having a minimum hands/hour in order for the challenge to be considered complete. There may have been other stipulations but I can't remember them.

Hour 17
5512 hands
+71 BB

I think I've really hit the wall. My eyes are getting harder and harder to focus and I fell sick from drinking an entire 2 liter of Hawiian Punch. The sun is now rising. I'm still playing 10/20 and think I am playing fine, it just takes me a few seconds longer to read the board/make the decision/see anything. These 10/20 6max games are good 24hrs a day. On my first ADHOC I quit after 14 hours and -250ish BB at 5/10 6max. I thought then I could have finished if I wasn't so frustrated but at this point I'm not so sure.

Hour 20
6328 Hands
+71BB

One of my friends crashed, but I'm going to finish this thing. I'm at the point of random dozing off. Each hour is getting progressively harder, and each is also going by slower and slower. I will likely update this next when I'm done at 2:10 PM central.
