How about if I change the title to New Challenge ( Tourney Style ) or something like that.Edit: I changed the title and description. If you want it changed to something else just let me know NNB.

I've been looking into an excuse to start up SNGs as well...I am game.A few months ago there was a thread about PStars doing a point system for all the levels of SNGs so there would be SNG standings...whatever became of that?

I will join in on the fun since I just put $50 on FT last night after busting my little tiny roll due to horrible BR management. Hopefully will be able to turn my $50 into $500+ by early March.... What would be the best value for low buy-in MTT's?
It's hard work. Gambling. Playing poker. Don't let anyone tell you different. Think about what it's like sitting at a poker table with people whose only goal is to cut your throat, take your money, and leave you out back talking to yourself about what went wrong inside.

I'd be game to start Monday, Feb. 25 and end Monday, March 31st.Well, I'll start with 10 BIs for the $1 SNGs at FTP and will only move up when I have 10 BIs for next level, which I think is the $2 SNGs. I will only play single table SNGs. (I mean this is what I was looking to do, if anyone has any other ideas or whatever, just post it.) In all honesty, I hope I'm able to make it to the $50 level SNGs at FTP, since the highest I've ever really played have been the $20 SNGs.Also, I don't play that often on Stars so I don't really know what kind of SNGs they have there.

Gl guys. I started my own little challenge in December with 50 on FTP. I wanted to get into cash games once I got it to about 500, but I havent been doing too well in the cash and have been killin SNGS so I am going to stick with these. As of right now I have my cash spread out on a few different sites and have turned my original 50 on FTP to 400, 75 on stars, and 350 on UB. Should be over 1k total by the end of the month.

I was just going to do SNGs. But I'm pretty sure NNB wanted to do MTTs. I'll still play tournies every now and then, but I won't play them with the BR I plan to use for the SNG challenge.

I have never played for cash on FT so I would be down for dumping a few bucks in there and taking part of a SNG challenge.At the same time I will still do most of my playing on Stars so that could help keep my BR separate.So when are people starting?

Im down. Im going to set a challenge for myself this week to win the Bodog TLB, I had a good night last going deep in 3 tournies so if I can get some volume in this week I think I can do it, Im already a day behind because I did'nt play at all on monday and tonite theres a lunar eclipse so Im probably going to get dragged into that.I think this thread is a good idea, and nudez are a plus.

im still not sold that many of these people that get these big online scores are winners when it comes to the live game, which, by the way, is real poker.
