Peelies "Challenge to the Challengees to Take their Challenges elsewhere and stop....
making me read the opening post, no-one cares, start a blog or something" Challenge Thread!!!!!!!!
Challenge threads are making me lol so much atm.
Except from dsvw's of course, his was interesting b/c he could actually do it.
All the posters that are like "$0 - $10k In 3 months Challenge Thread" are seriously deluded lol and all the people that follow each challenge (for challenge read, hugely improbable goal) should read better threads, like the HA section for example.
For this very reason i'd like to jump in the flux-capacitor and shoot chris ferguson, if he hadn't started his own challenge then the whole poker forum
community wouldnt have jumped on the band wagon. Thanks chris, for showing the world that anybody can build a roll from scratch, what you didnt say is that not everybody has to tell the rest of the world about it, and that the average person on a forum cares more about whether his pants are a bit moist after his morning fart than he cares about your challenge, even if he does say good luck to build up his post count for the freeroll club.
Goals in poker are much needed imo but at the same time they need to be realistic and actually have a chance (for chance read, a percentage that isn't preceded by a decimal point and four 0's) to succeed, nobody likes it when they don't meet a goal they have set themselves and insane challenges like these can't be doing anything for the challengee's confidence or mental stability. I'm worried about them, really.
Whatever happened to goals like, this month i'm going to break the $100 mark, i'm going to move up to 10nl and stay there for longer than 4 sessions, i'm going to focus on playing more from position this month etc etc they're good goals, and they're doable, so at the end of the month you could look back and say, yeah, i done that, instead of, man i'm still like $9,989 off my target and i've only got 2 months to go, i'm such a failure!!!!
I might start my own challenge thread where i hunt down challenge triers at 2nl and beat them, note: if they ever make it to 10nl then its more likely that they'll beat me b/c i think i fell over and landed on a doomswitch at about the time i moved up.
Rant over, I think i woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, apologies but there really is a new one popping up everyday that fades into obscurity within a month, it's comical but rather annoying too b/c i'm compelled to read the opening post on all of them to laugh at how improbable the particular dream is.
