A new challenge

It’s been a while since we had another challenge. With Mr. White having won our first two challenges, online as well as live, we thought the time has come to challenge him for a third time. Contenders this time: Mr. Blue and Mr. Orange.

Because the other players don’t have enough time at this moment to participate in our new challenge, it will be just the three of us. Just like the first one, this one concerns online poker again, tournaments of course. We’ll all play at Pokerstars and it will be limited to the ‘big’ tournaments.

So here’s the concept: the goal is to become the first player to attain 15 ‘points’ or more. How do you attain these points? By reaching the final tables in some large field tournaments (no freerolls, min. buy-in: $2). This is how the points are awarded:

Tournament with 90 or more players:
1 st place: 7 points
2 6
3 5
4-9 2

Tournament with 150 or more players:
1st place: 10 points
2 8
3 6
4 5
5-9 3

Tournament with 240 or more players:
1st place: 15 points
2 12
3 10
4 7
5 5
6-9 4

As you see, the winner of a big tournament with 240 or more players will immediately claim victory in the challenge. But as it’s not about small sit and go’s anymore, the very best tournament player among us will be the one who wins this thing. Some rules: only freeze-out tournaments (no rebuy) and minimum 6-handed tables (no heads-up tournaments). I wish my two opponents the best of luck and we’ll keep you updated!
