  • Fadyen's 50 Fifty50 Frenzee

    Ok folks, the idea here is simple; play 50 games of Fifty50 and see who can get the highest return. The purpose of this challenge is mainly just fun, friendly rivalry and to see if these games can be profitable and to help develope strategy on how to play them well. Sorry, no prize involved as I'm a poor bum but whoever gets the best return can get the unofficial title King of Fifty50!

    Rules:
    1. All games must be Fifty50's.
    2. You must record the results of 50 consecutive games.
    3. Games may be in any disipline (eg. NLHE, PLO, or a mixture) but must always be of the same value buy-in.
    4. When declaring your intention to take part please include which buy-in value you intend to play.
    5. When posting result please include the amount cashed for each game, $0.00 for a non-cashed game, and a total profit/loss.
    6. You may participate as many times as you wish.
    7. There is no time limit for this challenge.


    Since there is no prize I trust everyone will be honest with results. Feel free to post results here or in a thread titled Fifty50 challenge or something similar and I will try to keep up to date. If this challenge takes off I will make a leaderboard thread based on % ROI. Goodluck!

    Hi Fadyen,

    I ran a Fifty50 Challenge a few months back - 25 games at the $1.50 level - so if you want to compare you can check it out here.

    and the results that challengers achieved here

    I offered small prizes but there is a lot of work involved checking results so I think if I put a challenge out again in future I would not add prizes - and do as you have, make it just a fun challenge for bragging rights and rely on honest results being posted.

    I haven't played so many of this format since then - as I am concentrating on MTTs at the moment.

    Good luck with your own challenge. If I return to playing this format in future I will probably take a crack at it.

      Thanks for that info Ed. This is the first time I've ever tried anything like this so it's good to see what I'm supposed to be doing. Good luck with the MTTs and I hope you find some time to have a go at this challenge, seems like you're pretty good at these games.

              My latest batch of results. Would have had this all done a lot soon except I've been on a massive downswing the past couple weeks, despite getting it in super good almost every time, as you can probably see from the results lol.

              21. NLHE turbo 5/10 $2.37
              22. NLHE turbo 3/10 $2.78
              23. NLHE turbo 6/10 $0.00
              24. NLHE turbo 6/10 $0.00
              25. NLHE turbo 3/10 $1.97
              26. NLHE turbo 3/10 $2.27
              27. NLHE turbo 1/10 $3.96
              28. NLHE turbo 9/10 $0.00
              29. NLHE turbo 7/10 $0.00
              30. NLHE turbo 6/10 $0.00
              31. NLHE turbo 10/10 $0.00
              32. NLHE turbo 7/10 $0.00
              33. NLHE turbo 3/10 $2.66
              34. NLHE turbo 7/10 $0.00
              35. NLHE turbo 3/10 $2.42

              Really starting to dent my confidence but just have to power on I guess.
