Default An ADHOC Challenge (Sort of)

Two friends and I are attempting an ADHOC today. We won't be abiding by bisonbison's rules, but simply playing 24 hrs straight with 5 minute breaks every two hours. I will be playing 3 tables of 10/20 6max for as long as I can, and after that I will play 4-6 tables of .5/1 6max. Both friends will be playing four tables of 2/4 full. Once I move down I announce the traditional 2+2 table. We did this once before, and only one of us finished. We began at 2:10 PM Central.

I will update this thread if there is interest.

You misread, I think. We are doing this now.

Beginning of hour 5 right now and I am feeling good and +50BB.

EDIT: I guess I did shift tenses in my OP, sorry for any confusion there.

Get yourself a cruise ship vacation by popping up more 10/20 tables.

I prefer playing 3 to focus more on reads, player tendancies, etc. I played more in the past but did not feel I was improving my game much.

During hour 5 I swung down to even but now battled back to +60BB. Just ordered some pizza and I'm feeling almost as good as hour 1. I don't think my play has deteriorated at all.

Hour 9
2689 hands
+11 BB

Well now I'm beginning to feel it. My bum hurts from sitting on this crappy fold out chair, my eyes are feeling weird, my basement is freezing, and I just keep swinging up and down without much progress. I sure don't mind the breakeven stretch, but a little incentive/motivation would be nice for this effort. Played in the 40k guaranteed and busted out just before the first break without trying my hardest.

This may be harder than I thought to make the whole 24hrs.
