Summer Bankroll Challenge!!!

It is that time again. Time to lose money playing poker while trying desperately to do just the opposite! Dr. Chako and I tried this last year and it was a glorious success (for me!). Either of us would have won if we hadn't played a single hand of poker, but I was the big winner at -40% of my original bankroll.

Leave a comment if you're interested, and we can figure out a bet or pool, to be enforced by the honor system. Right now, I am thinking starting around June 20th and ending August 20th. If it is only the doctor and I, I propose our bet be 1% of our annual income... if we get fun other people interested, maybe we can have a pool and split up the prizes for the big winner and the big busto of the pool.

I was seriously just composing a post on the same thing. I'm in, of course. June 20th is a good start date. I need to deplete my BR a little first. I'm doing a good job as I type this playing two donkaments on FT.

I've had a nice month to date. Can I go with that? +275% Not that it ever lasts.

Got the blog moved. Comedy of Error on my part. Looked a lot like my poker game.

I'm not a fan of the 1% annual income thing . . . particularly given my husband's past and our need to conserve cash if we ever expect to own a home in CA

I'm potentially interested. I need more details, but keep me posted.
