Default 4 buy in challenge

k, I've got a couple of hours here and I need to be a little motivated to play.

Back in limit land we did a fun little thing called the 15bb challenge in which we'd play a limit at smaller than normal stakes, then move up the moment we hit 15bb for the next level.

I'm going to adapt this a bit for 6max NL and give it a go. My guidelines:

move down at 2 BI for current level.
move up at 4 BI for next level.
two tables max.
jump tables instead of reloading after beats.
start new tables at move up levels.
start at $25 NL
no more moving down at $10 nl, move up or busto
cash out if I beat the $200 level.

tonight i'll play until 11:30 central.
If I've survived, I'll pick up the challenge again in my next session.

guruman on Stars. let us gogogogogogo.

also, had to adjust the movedown threshold to 1 BI for current level. this just made waaay more sense in practice.

I'll try and do one at the end of the challenge. I'm going to run this one at least through the weekend.
