My aim in poker is to win a Sit N Go Jackpot and have total poker winnings of $50,000. Since the end of 2010 I have been recording my progress in this blog. Currently I am playing the Maui Jackpot Sit N Go games, working on ways to improve my win rate % and thus increase my chances of hitting the Jackpot. My profit total at 1st December 2015 is $26,377.

Twelve days in to my latest mini challenge to play 250 Rio games I have
won a consolation bonus of $300 for a sequence of 112212. This is the first

This gave me a great platform to build upon to secure a top two spot.
Key Hand 2

Four handed with a slight chip lead and high blinds I shoved with threes
only to be called by nines. A three on the river helped me secure a dominant
lead and ultimately a second place finish. I should remember by luck in this
spot as otherwise I was the short stack and unlikely to make the top two.
a few days I will update the position on my "Readers Rio Challenge" which is going
pretty well after a difficult start. It is good to know I have already completed the
toughest part of it. I also intend to do a few posts on overall Rio Jackpot Sit
N Go strategy, though this is genuinely work in
