If you have to change your play to do the challenges, then its not worth it. The points are not worth losing money. Why would you just keep betting and hoping you get 3bet so you can fold? Thats just dumb.
You can't get 1,000,000 points for the avatar, but you can get more than 10,000. I've gotten way over that. You can do each challenge 10 times, so add up the points of all the challenges and then multiply that by 10.
Pick a challenge (like the preflop challenge that was suggested) and then just play normal. It might take you a few days or a few weeks to complete it, but no big deal. You should not be trying to complete these challenges for the points...you're supposed to use them to help your play.
If you can finish a challenge in 1 hour by playing 1 table then you are doing it wrong. It should take time to finish these.
