DK 1.1 Extravaganza
« on: December 20, 2014, 09:54:26 AM »
On September 30th, I had a breakthrough game and scored my current PB of 1,099,500.  While this was a great accomplishment, the circumstances under which it was earned were crushing.

As I entered L21 with a man in reserve, this happened on 21-4:


Since then, attempting to correct the mistake, I've had 12 games at 1.1 pace with scores over 900k.  Each of them have ended tragically, the most notable being when I hit 970k on a single man only to immediately lose all four:



These two games have tormented me every day for quite a while, and I've decided it's finally time to put this thing to rest.

On Monday Dec 22nd, I will start a three week vacation from work that ends at the conclusion of DKO6 on Jan 11th.  DK 1.1 will become my new job, and I will be streaming 8 hours almost every day until I finally lock down the score. Because my control panel is broken, on the first day I'll be playing on MAME.  I will be receiving a new control panel that night and be playing every day going forward on my cabinet.

As above, good luck sir! With your recent games and pace it's pretty obvious it's not going to be long before you get there.

Don't get it too quickly though as I will be tuning in to grab some tips!  Kreygasm

Hey Wes!

I'm happy you're making these YOLO attempts official. I will definitely watch a lot of your stream for the next 3 weeks (considering that I pretty much never work these days, I'll pretty much always have the time to watch you).

And if you hit 1.1m sooner within the three weeks, please don't stop, and aim for higher. Try as hard as you mentally can! I'll definitely be there cheering for you  Kreygasm

And Phil, I also thought it was aboot 1-1... it's sad, but 1.1m is still cool though  <Allen> Can you imagine a 3 weeks 8 hours per day of 1-1?  Kreygasm Kreygasm Kreygasm

Sounds like how I was this past summer when I wasn't working a lot and having nearly 20 games over 800k at WR pace tragically end.  And two games failing on the final board.  That drove me crazy for the longest time and I eventually did the same thing offline playing almost 8 hours a day.  I wish the best of luck to you on this I have no doubt you will get there since you want it so badly.

 Kreygasm so much newsflashing!  Kappa

But, seriously, good luck, Wes. You might even consider going for the WR while you're at it.

I understand.  In order to advance, it is sometimes necessary to take a step back.

Good luck, Wes.  I look forward to the day when you decide to initiate another attack on your elusive goal, with a renewed sense of purpose and optimism.

I changed my mind and deleted that post. Failure is not an option. This score is an embodiment of everything in my life I've ever come very close but short in, and I must conquer it to be free.
