Amazingly one of the first things i saw when i arrived here was an advert in a shop window for the Mexican series of poker. First prize was 25000 Pesos which if you have ever been here is alot of money.
I did forget to mention on my blog before i set off that my run on 21 consecutive wins on the Omaha tables came to a crashing halt in Barcelona. To be fair it was due and even in that session i was up to $10000 from $2000 and decided to play on..... i haven't played a hand of poker in about 12 days now which seems like a famine. I guess i could play a bit in one of the internet cafes but i rarely play well/properly if i am not fully focused. I have managed to read Super System 2 which i brought away with me already. I did enjoy learning about Triple Draw Lowball and all the other chapters contained some useful information.
I have just been looking on the Blondepoker forum and i see that the first proper event today was sold out with hundreds being turned away. I just can't see how these events are going to finish in two days.... be interesting to see how much prize money will be paid out of the entire event but it has to be well over $100 million... probably closer to $150 million. Hopefully at least one Brit will win a bracelet.
Right i am off to get a Corona.......
