PSO Challenge Results
The PSO Full Ring vs 6-Max Challenge ended over the weekend. The 6-Maxers got a well deserved win, mainly due to an astonishing run by one player. He turned an $80 bankroll into $1021 during the month! Even the SuperNova pros hadn't heard of anyone running that well before.
I ran better than I ever have before, as well, especially the final week. My $80 bankroll grew to $369 which was good enough to win the MVP spot on Team Full Ring. The prize for being the MVP is a free one-on-one coaching session from the head coach at PSO! Winning this was my goal from the start of the challenge. Private coaching typically costs at least a hundred bucks an hour. It is something I have wanted to try, but haven't really felt I could justify the investment. Now I get to try it for free!
I also won a few tourney tickets ($22, $5.50 and freeroll) and amassed about 1000 VPPs from playing. The vpps were enough for me to cash out the first $50 Steller Reward and also mean I will make Silverstar some time this week.
This was a very profitable challenge for me. More importantly, I learned quite a bit about cash tabling. I have adjusted my opening range. I have quit calling 3-bets. I am much more aware of position. And I am much more comfortable with post flop action.
I four tabled Zoom the entire challenge.
Week 1 2 NL Zoom 11 000 hands $20 profit

PS: The number 2 player on Team Full Ring is a Norwegain Goldstar. Don't be surprized if he makes an appearance at our next live game:)
