I read about the "15 BB Challenge" today on the 2+2-forums, and decided to try it out.

The challenge is for limit poker players to step down one limit from where they usually play, buy in with 15 big bets (hence the name "15 BB Challenge") and then play until they either double up or bust out. If they double up, they get up and sit down at a higher limit table. Repeat until you're either bust, or you reach a preset goal of time or hands played.

I decided to make it 250 hands, since I knew I couldn't take the entire evening off to just play poker. I started at $0.50/$1, and made my $15 buy-in (ran into Xandit btw, /wave).

This was far from an exceptional run, but it was a fun thing to do for a change. Anyone want to try it out and see how far they get? :)

I tried something like that. there is also one where you play 50 hands and then leave. or let the blinds go around 5 times then leave, etc etc
