Challenge Update - 16/12/2011

The challenge is now 3 days in and going pretty slowly. I initially need 1,704 VPPs per day for the rest of the month but that has slowly crept up to around 1,800 per day.

I am playing 20+ Tables and feeling not too bad about it. It is very hard to take notes playing this many tables. I am mixing in a few NL100 tables while playing at NL50.

Day 1 didn't go too well as I went out for a few drinks and a meal and only got 400 VPPs.

Day 2 saw the daily requirement move up to 1,790 VPPs per day. I didn't calculate the new requirement till after day 2 was done so I thought I only needed 1,704 and managed to get 1,708 so I was a little short but a minor oversight. I played for 8.25hrs which means that roughly 9hrs a day is enough to make my goal. This is good and lower than I had expected as I made my calculations on playing 16 tables.

Day 3 is under way and I am now on my lunch break having made 407 VPPs in session 1. It was a frustrating session as I was up $250 only to lose a few big pots and finish up only $90. Still better than a loss.

I feel like I am taking numerous bad beats but it is probably only because I am playing a lot of hands. I have run into AA 3 times into KK and lost all 3. The one time I get AA vs Villain's KK he flops a King. I got KK all in pre vs AK and he flops a king. Stuff like this keeps happening. I am actually up though which is the amazing thing over these last 3 days. I seem to be winning a lot of small and medium sized pots to make up for losing a lot of big ones.
