€250 Challenge - Days 24/25

Profit: +€1800
It feels like the last week has been about nothing other than losing a bunch of money, to win it back again. You can probably see this in the graph, and it's been fairly frustrating that every day I've taken a big hit early, but I guess should be glad that I've won it back each time.

It's taken me nearly 600 games to get back to where I was before my huge downswing (discarding rakeback and other prizes). Hopefully now I can get my graph to continue on a reasonable up gradient.

Earning an average of €1.60 a game shows just how much of a grind this has been so far. However, I'm reasonably pleased with how things are going currently, I just wish I could just have a sick stint where I don't lose a match like I have occasional stints where I can't win one!

Nearly 1200 HUSNG in a month is some grindage! I want to hang myself with less than half of that volume!

It is a major grind to get back on track after a downswing but congrats on doing so. I too often just throw in the towel.

Nice call that in a horrible board!
