Poker Challenge #6 – 200x $3.50 SNG 6 Hyper

I just finished up my 6th Poker Challenge where I was trying to figure out if 6 max. hypers are really a long term possibility for me and even though the results have somewhat been worse (if I compare number of games vs. profit) I am still very satisfied with the result (see below). Mainly for 1 reason, I have been trying to play more tables at the same time and can almost comfortably play 4 tables now, thats why this challenge only took me 3 days to complete (!) which is a huge step for me towards the volume improvement which is much needed at those levels to actually make a dent lol… And also I have realized that I need to get myself some softwares to make my life on the tables a little easier (tracking opponent stats etc.) and help me with tracking my own results, what am doing here is a little too “medieval” for my taste, there are programs that will collect the same data as I play, maybe my next blog post already includes a cool graph or two :D. I guess I will keep at those 6 Max. Hypers for now and try to go as deep into the theory as possible, I am very lucky to have met a fellow poker player by the name of Gethen who is willing to help me improve my game just because he is an awesome guy and happy to help poker players that struggle at the lower stakes as myself, going forward I think with his help and my determination plus loads of studies I might be able to become a long term winner at online poker, time will tell, I guess my next step for my poker challenges is to double up again to 400 games for the same format and see if the positive trend continues, hopefully I can finish that challenge within a couple days only…

The Result: 35 Wins, 41 Second Place, 31x Third Place, 34x Fourth Place, 27x Fifth Place, 32x Sixth Place

My Buy-In was $700 for those 200 games and I got $285.77 for the 2nd places and $453.25 for my wins, so in total I got $739.02 back which gives me a profit of $39.02.

The raw data:

32×6
27×5
34×4
31×3
41×2
35×1

$700 Buy-In

$285.77
