Instant Tragedy

February 6, 2010 at 1:46 am

$1 to $1000 Challenge…

My goal for the year 2010 is :

Using only Double or Nothing tournaments , or tournaments that don’t exceed 5% of my bankroll I will make $1000 from a lonely $1 start.

Free rolls are fair game as the usage of points to enter tournaments.

I can use any means to my end goal of victory without depositing or counting any transfers made to me.

I was down to $0.32 and I turned that into $1.19 at a .01/.02 table. (Had to get to $1.15 so I could try a DoN for the challenge.

So off I go, attempting never to have to deposit into Poker Stars again, I started my challenge and I have a $16.50 SCOOP coupon that I will use to my advantage.

Today’s starting total : $11.57 + $16.50 Scoop Ticket = $28.07

But today’s question in my path of enlightenment…

Does the pre-flop reraise eliminate too many people, rather than just calling the initial raise?
