Day five into the challenge and my volume have dropped ☹. I already had some plans on Monday to run a D&D game for my friends and did not want to cancel it just to put in extra volume. I also thought that if I got home by 9 pm est that I would be able to get in some reasonable volume but for some reason, those pesky Europeans do not like to be up until 4am. All things considering, I still got in about 130 games and added another $170 to the bank. Looking at the status of the leader board and my current pace I think that I am not going to be able to break the top three for the leaderboard. Starting the challenge nearly two days after the leaders really put me behind the ball. I also over estimated how many games a day I would get since I considered that I would be able to get in reasonable volume after 8pm est. It is not all doom and gloom though, at my current pace I am going to still finish in fourth or fifth which is not bad. There is only a 100e difference between the two, which while not $0 is only equivalent to a day’s grind so not going to beat stress over next two days with over grinding.
I am happy though with the results, I will fall short of the goal of the 2k game. I could grind out extra hours tonight and tomorrow to try and get there but I would for sure not be playing A game so would rather just spread out those games over the next few days and play better poker. The bankroll is reaching a point where I will be able to take more serious shots at the 10e games.
Knock on wood, that over next few hours I run decent and manage to make 1k over the course of the week playing the 5e games which would be a respectable result.
