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?
