I had a hand prop bet with Luka Allen for the month of March in that I had to hit 120k hands to his 50k hands. Now whilst this doesnt seem fair to me, it needs to be remembered that my normal volume for a month is about 100k hands and Luka's is about 35k, so we were both pushing the envelope to hit a new 'career high in hands'.
I started well but then fell behind pace, mostly due to the frustration of some bad beats and those bad beats resulting in bad monkey play by me. That said, I dont like giving people $250 so with three days remaining I was 19k hands short of 120k. After getting in about 5400 on the 29th, I knew on the 30th that I needed to push it so that I didnt have to be worried and have to play some crazy number of hands on the 31st. I decided that the only way to really get the hands in was to RUSH it out. Now most of you know my hatred for RUSH poker and therefore yesterdays events might surprise you. I decided to 10 table RUSH at the $5nl and $10nl level for 7 hours !!!! I played 4 x $5nl FR, 4 x $5nl 6max and 2 x $10nl FR to get 14k hands in.
After recovering from the sight of every KK running into AA for the first hour and then from a dead arm from the repeated stress of constantly clicking my mouse, I managed to slowly get the hang of the game to the point that I think if I put in the work that I could be a winner in the games. Its certainly something I dont want to do though so unless I am way behind another prop bet dont expect to see me RUSHING in the near future. Here is a graph from my RUSH session for yesterday
