How about something like an SNG challenge? You can't move up until you have 10 buyins for next level. I know there was something like this. I was going to probably start with $10 and play the $1 SNGs at FTP and then move up to net level when I have 10 buyins, hopefully make $10 into $1000 by end of the month or something along those lines. IDK, I'm just babbling now.

Hehe. I'm just warning everyone in advance if my half naked drunken pics end up in here instead of the other challenge thread, its NNB's fault :club: And you KNOW Kevlar's gonna be way to drunk normally to tell the difference between the threads :)Mark

I like this idea for a thread.I play exclusively on stars atm.Tournament wise, I play every Sunday and usually Sat +Tues/Weds if I'm in.Tournaments I play.Special - $11 Sunday Hundred GrandRegular (depends what hours I'm awake)- $5R @ 5:15$5 @ 13:00$3R @ 14:15$5R @ 18:00$11 @ 19:00$3R @ 20:00MTT SnG's (180 man)$4.40/$22/$12 (turbo) (stopped latter for the moment after failing in about the last 25 to cash)Play the odd medium level buy in tournament or the $8R/$11R if I'm feeling like it or $11 turbo if I have little time.Also sattied into Million for FPP's twice but failed to get anywhereSo far I've failed to make a FT in a big MTT which is starting to bug me. The last 5 times I've gotten into the last 100 I've suffered a brutal suckouts. Last night 94th in $3r, KK < 77 for top 10 stack. Won 6 $4.40 180 mans and 1 $12 180 man in the last couple of months.

I think the other one works because cash game players really have no where else to go. While tournament players make a new thread every time they final table.This could work though but you need some pros to get behind it. They dont need to be a name pro just a person who play a large number of tournaments because if it only has people who play 2 or 3 every so often then this thread will be flooded with missed 40/60 shoves.

I am starting at 7 eastern with the 109/75 and probably finish with the 50/50s or big doubles depending on screen space.
