Steps Challenge!

Now that BBT5 is mostly behind us.... Anyone up for a mini-challenge?

I'm thinking a 1 or 2 week bout revolving around FT's new steps tourneys. The idea is to start with a set amount at step 0 (the $1 superturbos) - lets say 25 buyins or so ($27.50 @ $1.10 per step 0 - or use FTPs to buy into step 0's - the point is to start at the beginning) ... get as many step 1's as you can, work those into step 2's etc.... until you're either busto or you have a 10k seat. We could do this as a point system - with the step # the amount of points you earn. You CAN NOT buy directly into a bigger step, you have to earn it from 0 and work up. You can choose to stop at any point throughout and keep those points (and the ticket to use however you wish). Redo's count (if you do a step 2 and don't win, but get sent back to step 1 that counts as 3 points). Potentially someone could work 1 ticket up to step 6, and another not make it past step 1, but get 50 redos and take this thing down...
First person to a 10k seat is an auto-win and this thing is over.

Usual props apply - winner pot, horsie, best post, blah blah blah - you decide.

Anyone interested? Should step 0 be more/less than 25? 1 week, 2 weeks?

Who do I owe what to?

Sorry, Just remember this, and I am just too much of a lazy fuck to try and figure it out for myself. If I owe you anything for the last bankroll challenge, please drop me an IM or an email.

Funniest Poster

Ode to Blaargh!

You, dear alien, are a hoot.
Not the hoot who does jello shots with no hands,
The hoot with feathers on days besides Halloween.


Interstellar graphs,
With lines,
So many lines,
That are meaningless to this
Colorblind gentleman,
Who would like to meet your Ev one day,
She sounds nice.

The post bet

In honor of MHG... I bow to your skillz at teh Microsoft paint.

There once was a Mean Happy Guy,

who chose to give drawing a try.

He did it while drunk,

with the tip of his junk,

but the size of his pen made him cry.

The Horse Bet

When there is no white in a painting of mine, you know that I've put some time into it. It just so happens on this part of the track there is no scenery. Why is there no scenery? Jordan bought everything in sight and has it in his mansion. In fact, there is a clearcut forest all along the next furlong of the track.

The REAL Bets

Giving money to Jordan isn't fun for any of us, so let's get to the REAL bets. A few of these will need the peanut gallery's input.

4) Funniest Post
MHG: A poem ode to the victor
Blaargh!: dirty limerick
Dr. Chako: poetry
Kat: haiku/poem

I do not think we have a clearcut winner for this yet, we will need to hash this out in the comments section. Or perhaps each bettor will pick their favorite funniest post and give their writing to the victor?

5) Betting the horses
MHG: A painting of the victor
Blaargh!: painting
Dr. Chako: Some form of original art. I may write and record a song.
Kat: crafty/pokery goodness

Thanks to CK for her spreadsheet skills. Unfortunately, Blaargh, Dr. C, and Kat all ended up in a 3-way tie. With me finishing dead-last. I will create a painting of all three victors.

6) Bad Beat of the Challenge (worst bad beat of the challenge, non-monetary)
MHG: A box of Kleenex
Blaargh!: The world's smallest violin
Dr. Chako: The world's 2nd smallest violin. Apparently the smallest was already taken.

If I recall correctly, I think Blaargh had a pretty nice bad beat at some point in this challenge, but I will need to do some research. What say you, peanut gallery?

7) Most hands played during the challenge
Blaargh!: $5
MHG: $2
Aposec72: $3

The spreadsheet of my challenge has already been posted, and I didn't make it to 10k, so I'm pretty sure I lost this one. I'm not sure who between Blaargh and Aposec to give money to.

8) Best overall winrate over 10k hands
Blaargh!: $5
MHG: $2

This one could be tricky. If Blaargh was negative over 10k hands, is that better or worse than not even playing 10k hands? Sigh. I'm willing to fight to the death over this bet.

Good Game

I wound up finishing the challenge down around a third of my account. I was positive up until the last day when I decided to try to take down the Sunday 80 grand and top Jordan's score. I then followed that up with a bad cash session. Oh well, go out with a bang I guess.

Congrats to Jordan on the win.
