Default 2K 55s before the STTF-HU Challenge

The last time I went to Vegas, I had an absolute blast. But, I think that I could have had an even better time if I wasn't so short on cash when I went. As a result, I am going to do this challenge. The challenge is simple...get 2000 50+5s played by the end of august. So far I have 69 played with an roi of 14.6 and itm of 37.7. My goal is to have an roi of 10 after all is said and done. This would give me a total of $11k. My plan is to use 2k to take care of general travel fees (plane, hotel, food, paying back a lender, entrance fee, rental car). 4k will be left behind as a br for when I get back, and 5k will be used for gambling/booze/stirppers/hookers when I am out there. As far as general living expenses until I get out there, this will be taken care of by rakeback. I plan on making an update to this every sunday and then on the 31st I will post the actual details once all is said and done. I will start out playing 4 tables, but eventually I will get to 8 tables.

Now for the numbers: Starting today I have 69 55s played. There are 8 days left in July, and 30 days in sept. This comes out to 38 days or 5.5 weeks. 2k-69=1931. In order to hit my goal, I will have to play 51 Sngs a day (which will be simple as soon as i start 8 tabling) or 351 Sngs per week. If I decide to take 2 days off a week that means that I will have to play 9 sets of Sngs per day when 8 tabling. Wish me luck and stay off of my tables.

GL man. I might go out to vegas too with Raptor depending on how I do. I'll probably see you on the tables during the next month. I'm 8-tabling 55s and 109s on my accounts AllInLuckBox and AllInLuckBot.

51 per day is harder than most think. I try for 40 (5 sets) every day and I get pretty burned out.

Good luck though...

Are you going to do them in sets or a new one every time you bust? 51 is long in sets but will not be so bad if you do one after another.

51 a day is only 6 hours per day....shouldnt be too hard considering that this is really all i have done for the last 6 months. I may end up playing 100 a couple of days in order to give myself a day off.....im kinda a workaholic though.
