  • Cowboy takes the xflixx challenge

    Okay Posse,

    I am not a cash player but have been watching Felix' training videos and will give this a shot. I won't be focused on this at all as I still have my own challenge of 1000 games at each level as my focus.
    I will post my results as requested.

    Gidee Up!

      Great question room..............I didnt say I wouldn't be focused when I am playing! This is simply my start to cash and I love the challenge it simply won't be a focus of mine to be in any rush to complete! Poker is a lifelong game and my focus is on my challenge!
      As far as anyone learning from it.... I'm somewhat confused as my understanding of Felix's challenge is personal growth not for anyone else's! May I ask what you would like to learn from my taking this challenge? Where in my statement do I say I don't care? This is why i prefer to communicate in some other form than text but it is what it is.

        Thanks for respondingumbup: yes his challenge might be for personal growth, but as Felix has shown with HH and such there are many spots to learn from. Especially at 2nl where the obvious play is not so obvious at all with some of these players.. and as the majority of people who will be taking this challenge are either new to the cash game, and or newer players, this is an excellent chance for a teaching opportunity. Sure it is nice to watch friends grow their bankroll, but this challenge I think, as Felix began it is also a tool for helping newer players get a grasp on concepts, theory etc, not just a watch how I grew my bankroll. As to the not caring part, when someone tells me I will do it, but my focus is elsewhere,I would assume that it is not a priority, but since you have cleared up my misconception about what you said, all is good!! And I agree wholeheartedly about your last statement..... too much is misinterpreted with the written word

              Damn you Johan Gutenburg and your -EV movable type.


              Good luck with it Cowboy.

              It was a source of consternation to me that I wasn't a winning player at rings and after watching felix and Daves and a few of the others videos I see a ton of bad moves I was making.

              Yanks get back on here cleaning up that particular piece of untidiness is definitely on my agenda as well.
