The £1k Cash Game Challenge has been completed.
I thought it’d take longer to be honest. This might be to do with the levels I was playing (mainly 50nl with a bit of 100nl thrown in). When you look at it this way its only really a win of 10-20 Buy-ins which I suppose isn’t massively impressive.
However as I’ve never really recorded sessions on cash before I wasn’t sure if I’d even be a winning player on cash. It’s nice to finally see numbers in front of me which shows I can beat the cash games (even over a small sample size) as I do definitely see myself more of a tournament player.
With the figures in front of me now it seems like it might be worth my time to play more on the cash tables. I think I have definitely been running over EV, however with 13 winning sessions in a row its hard to argue that there isn’t money to be had here.
I did not intend Session 15 to be as long as it was. I started the session poorly and was about £200 down after an hour. I spent the next 3 hours getting it all back and snap quit as soon as I hit profit. I was on a 11 session run of profit and didn’t want to ruin it! I’m a bit stubborn in that way – kind of regretted it in the morning but at least the record stood eh?
Previous Update: +£859.60 (26 hours played)
Session 15 – +£30.70 (1 table 100nl – 4 hours)
Session 16 – +£186.45 (2 tables 50nl – 2.5 hours)
Total Profit: +£1076.75 (32.5 hours)
I believe this is the hand which took me over the threshold (I might be wrong but it was around this time in the session). I only made £6.82 off the hand but please don’t tell me that online poker is dead…
I guess I’ll have to start another challenge soon then. Any ideas? Omaha has been mentioned although this could scramble my brain a bit much as I’ve never played it. Still, I suppose that’s the point of a challenge…
