My Website is updated at last!

Check it out

Im no website designer, but hopefully I have also ironed out a few of the bugs that it contained - it can now be viewed properly in firefox.

Poker update........

Live poker has been a bit of a washout lately, have not played much since the £300 at Equal Chance. I am hoping to play the omaha and main event at the Gutshot fessie next week. (The Gutshot main event should be 25% cheaper if I can rake enough on Poker Trillion - as you can enter live events with your RakeBack at a discounted rate!). There is also a Rake race happening in May where the top 20 play off for a $4.5k WSOP mini package - Currently I am top :)

Online has been sick for the last couple of weeks - started with $500 on Poker Trillion (1st may) and tried to spin it up but lost over half of it in first week, so I played the Trillion Treat and the $5k guaranteed - Finaled both but failed on a 1st or 2nd place but still netted just $1.5k.

I have invested quite a bit of time watching video's of online cash play and also watching known winning players play online which has improved my game. With the bad run I had online cash last year I had turned into a bit of a nit and was missing out on value bets + a few other bad habbits had crept in.

Have been hitting the cash tables hard since then (also a few other final table appearances) and am currently on just over $4k. I have lost a couple of sick hands for big pots but have also hit two straight flushes this week and been paid on both!

Playing on Poker Trillion gets very deep very quickly as you can buy in for 200BB's. So sitting with over $1k at $1 $2 is very common.

I have also been playing more and more omaha with success.

The payout structure on Poker Trillion is a good one, under 50 runners means only top 5 get paid. So when only 31 enter the Trillion Treat $100 comp (with $5k added), getting in the money is such good value with 5th paying $600 and 1st almost $4k!

So all in all, this year (with the live scores I have had >£8k) is looking good. It needed to be to be honest after last years poor performance where I only made a few £k.

Laters people!

Latest update

Well I must admit, ive been a little lazy with my blog - but whats new? lol

Pokerwise, things have been good. I final tables the £20k at Equal Chance for the 2nd time in a row, but again failed to get the job done and came in 4th for just shy of £3k. I must admit, I love this comp - excellent slow structure allowing for plenty of play.

Next came the Blonde Bash held at DTD. Me and the good lady travelled up to Nottingham on the Friday - with her sister in tow. She has been a little down recently and thought she could do with a weekend away. So, only one double room though meant 3 in a bed which you think would be fun no? NO! Damn she can snore for England! lol

Although the Bash was good, I had mixed fortunes. Took £1k with me. Went out on the Friday night to Chambers - a karaoke bar. Got completely smashed! Was even dancing AND sang! OMG - good job it was late so most had disapeared by them "phew"

Expensive night, with our 3 drinks costing £15 a time!. Was having a good night, then disaster struck when I decided we would head for DTD at 2am. Taxi driver took us there via Grimsby I think! Tosser! I managed to do £200 in a 50p £1 nlh cash game in about 10 minutes - very stupid but was good fun! Richard Trigg did similar.

So, the next morning I am a little worse for ware and was scared to look in my Wallet to see what last nights little adventure had cost - I felt SICK when I saw I only had £475 left WTF?!? Still, was a good night, just not sure it was £500 good though.

So, onto the main event - I felt as sick as a pig - I was so hot. Didnt last very long and decided to play the £50 comp DTD had on - I missed the start so I was about 15th on the alternate list. You only start with 4k but by the time I got my seat I started with 3100 and blinds of 75 150 and soon to be 100 200. I picked up no cards but there was one guy to my right you was raising almost every other hand - He was my target to get chips from. Everytime I could I would move all in on his raise - I managed to recover and then hit a couple of hands which saw me on 14k - just above average, but in 3 hands I was out - to be fair I should of been out on the first hand where I have raised in late position with 66 and called from the Button. Flop 6 4 8 rainbow. I checked to him expecting him to fire a bet, but he checked it back. Turn was a K. I again checked and he did also. River bought a flush and I checked again, he then bets 3000 to which I just flat call. He turned over 5 7 - He flopped the straight with a flush draw! How do I only loose 3000 on that hand? Reason is I played the hand so badly and he hit the flop a little too much.

Not much drinking that night and an early night

Sunday came and there was a £30 omaha tourney which I entered. I love playing omaha, such an interesting game - well I went on to get 3 way and I had 1/2 the chips in play - all 3 of us wanted it wrapped up (for different reasons) so a chip count was done and I collected £100 less than 1st place anyway - so a nice £500 profit.

All in all the weekend only cost me £200 - not bad from being £500 down after the first night of drinking!

Online is going well. I have moved to Poker Trillion and have made a few final tables and am beating the cash games! Hopefully it will continue.

They have HUGE overlays in their guaranteed tournies.
