1st ever blog post - so here goes.
Firstly i would like to give a quick overview of my situation.
I have suffered back problems since 2004 and after various treatments and an operation in 2008 - i have now been advised that i can no longer continue to work in my job as an auditor. Sad sad news as i am only 38 - but basically im physically unable. Im not a lay-about and need to have something to challenge me and inspire me.
I spend long periods of time having to lay down (not a layabout he says ) due to the pain - now for the good news The one thing i can do comfortably is lie down with my laptop and play poker - so that is what i aim to do. Luckily i have an insurance policy that pays me half my salary so my bills etc are covered - not ideal - but i can manage.
Now to the poker part - always played for fun and made a few quid here and there - but never took it seriously and never really stuck to any challenges ive set myself. Till Now
I am going to set one challenge at a time and see where it takes me.
I am going to start at the bottom level and try and work my way up.
I am going to play on Full tilt for this challenge with a starting bank of $62.70 - just whats left in my account. I have removed funds from all my other accounts so to avoid losing focus.
The challenge is to play 300 games @ the $1.10 45man and aim to achieve a ROI of 20%. I aim to complete this by end Nov 2010.
Once the 300 games are up i will re-evaluate and look for another challenge.
As an incentive to myself , the 1st person that sees me playing any other games on full tilt bar the $1 45man till i have completed 300 games from today, then i will send them $20.
I will update this blog on a weekly basis with how the challenge has progressed.
Wish me luck
edit to say game no. changed from 400 to 300 as they take so long to bloody load up - still think that is a decent amount for the challenge. Oh and i can play any freerolls or points games
