Its been strange having a lull in poker tournaments. After Monte Carlo it was soon The Vic, then Gutshot and Luton..... i would have gone to play in the Blackpool festival but it coincides with a university reunion. Bizarrely the next tournament i may actually play in could be the WSOP main event in July. I have been keeping tabs on the Bellagio all week. Hopefully next year i'll be able to play if all goes to plan....... a couple of the Brits did well.
I was considering going to Barcelona but as its so close to my month in Mexico i've decided i'll only go if i qualify via a satelite. I had a go at the one on Betfair last night and managed to finish 5th despite the trash hands i was continuously dealt. Most of the players were quite passive so i managed to be chip leader for a while without ever having to show down a hand.
Having so much time on my hands to play poker has been good. At the moment i am tending to stick to set hours of play... usually between 1-6pm in the afternoon. I know it won't always go as well as it has been. I have played 14 sessions since the 13 April and have managed to make a profit in each one. It seems that i can't miss at the moment and long may the rush continue.
I haven't been to the Vic to play any Live Cash for ages. I do prefer the buzz of playing live but when there are so many fish about all over the place playing Omaha online at the moment i can't see the point. I seemed to have finally plugged my major weaknesses in my online play so far this year. Most importantly i am concentrating and playing alot better, I am sticking to Omaha cash which is far and away my best game online. I have also not played after drinking very much and have kept my tilting down to a minimum.
I do like to set myself targets and my new one is that everything i win (i hope!) in May online will be spent on a new car when i get back from Mexico..... so if you see me at a poker tournament in the summer in a 20 year old Fiesta you will know May was not good.
