April Round Up

Since finishing my job at the beginning of April to focus my attentions fully on poker I have to admit I could not have imagined that it would have gone so well. I love the freedom that just playing poker has given me and I am focusing better whenever I play. My third place at Gutshot was a very good boost especially coming so soon after Monte Carlo and I also got very close to the money in the main event at Luton.

Apart from a couple of bad days online when I first jumped into the £10/£20 Pot Limit Omaha on Betfair things have been going very well there as well. I won $30000+ across the various sites in April, which is way above target. I do understand that it can't always go this smoothly. With the variance in Pot Limit Omaha to have won 16 sessions on the trot has taken alot of luck as well as a bit of skill.

I watched myself on the poker channel earlier and I have to say I hate watching myself in interviews. Note to myself... don't open a sentence with "Ummmmmmmm"

I have just about sorted my dates for being in Vegas July1st - 15th.... it should give me a chance to play in a couple of warm up events before the biggie. I really want to play in the $10000 Pot Limit Omaha. Two $10000 events in the space of a week is quite expensive though.... we shall see.

A couple of things whilst remember. Does anyone know a decent hotel that I can book myself in to? Also, How do I pay in to the main event before I arrive? (I heard it might sell out)
If anyone is interested the EPT final is on Eurosport next Friday and Saturday I think at 9 or 10pm..... just switch of when it comes to my interview.

Hi Ben

I think you can also pay through pokerstars, and probably easier that way too, as you can do the whole package where you get hotel and wsop

Try and see if betfair can help. As a higher profile player who likes to mention betfair the may get you good digs for pretty cheap if you wear their gear.
