Marathon Day

I'm pretty sure this is the most poker I have ever played in a day. I played around 12 hours, largely because I started off running horribly, and then I entered a few tournaments to go along with the super turbos. Aaaaaaaaand I shipped a 24$ freezeout for 5.5k!! It's obviously the boomswitch that comes with starting a blog. I won't be counting that towards the challenge though, since the goal is 20k with only super turbos

Here is the (not so) pretty graph from my first day of the challenge. I did start a few hours before midnight, so it's actually a day and a bit.

For the poker illiterate, the red line is how much I should have won had my luck been neutral.
The green line is how much I actually won.
The blue line is how much I won plus rakeback.

473 Super Turbos
Profit: 578.8
Rakeback: 865.35
Total Profit: 1444.15

Taking down a tournament feels so good. I think this is my 3rd. I was playing super LAG early on, just messing around, since I had already been knocked out of the 100 FO. And I ran into aces with like 100 left, but binked a 2 outer on the river for a huge stack. That made me focus, and I feel I played pretty well after that. Some fun hands -

1. The one where I played like a donkey and got lucky

2. The final hand. The guy who I played HU had 3bet overshoved on my opens like 15-20 times at the final table, and I never had a hand. So this felt good.

  1. your playing 9-10 man super turbos at fulltilt? what levels?
    the little amount of rakeback must feel sick lol:P
    i have like 75-85% RB depending on how long i save up my points on ipoker, and there are 6 max super turbos, normal start stack with 1 min blinds. 70/30 payout, altho ive suffered the variance of em rakeback + rakeraces help a ton :) hope u do your challenge man let me know if u need a deal at ipoker
