DoN SnG Challenge Update 9

Comments: 4
What a relief! It looks like the Double or Nothing Sit-n-Gos on PokerStars are profitable again!

For a while I was thinking it was going to be impossible to get anywhere with this challenge so I'm very happy that things have been going well for my last two updates.

Right after I last posted on my DoN Challenge progress I had a nice little run of almost 20 straight wins and I was feeling great (initial spike in Update 9 portion of graph). Unfortunately it was followed by a big downswing that had me tilting again. I tried to regain my composure and rode it out.

One thing that helped me keep my cool was seeing how small the spike looked in the chart. Using my DoN SnG bankroll management spreadsheet to track my progress literally puts things in perspective.

My DoN Challenge Bankroll is now up to $785, which doesn't include around $200 in Stellar Rewards and Bonuses purchased through FPPs.

My winrate was 59% with an ROI of around 9% for this update's games. I'm still running a little more than 10 buy-ins under EV though. I caught up for a while when I had that initial spike but then things went downhill again. As long as my winnings increase, my AI-EV doesn't really matter that much.

I'm continuing to make adjustments and have incorporated some bits from my cash game which I think have helped.

My bankroll management guidelines were ultra conservative, I'm debating weather I should do something about it.

Are these turbos or non turbos? Ive noticed that non turbos were running a higher percentage. But recently a increase in regulars, have made both almost the same making turbos perhaps more profitable from the less rake.

I think these are all non-turbos. I don't play the turbos often. I never really liked or maybe just never really got a good feel for the turbos.
