Despite the fact i have never even played in the WSOP i really am looking on jealously at all the updates and tournaments that are going on. The Brits have come close in three events with Devilfish, Jeff Duvall and Harry Demetriou all coming close to winning bracelets. I am sure we should get a bracelet before the events run out. Maybe one of the Brits is saving themselves for the biggie.
Its good to see the Camel is back blogging. He has just arrived in Vegas and should have some interesting updates in the next few weeks.
Also i did break my no poker rule and played for nearly an hour on the $10/$20 Omaha on Betfair. Somehow i ended up with my $2000 in on a Tc9c2h flop with 9h9s7sKh. The turn a Jc and the river a Qh. Every straight and flush was out there and my hand was good, my opponent showed one pair. That was good for me and it has paid for my trip around Mexico so far. If you still have not qualified for the WSOP Betfair has one last chance for $300 this Sunday on Betfair. Click here to sign up. 10 seats are guaranteed and last week attracted just 266 runners so there is some extreme value there if you still have not qualified. The package includes accommodation, travel and $2000 spending money.
The one thing that travelling does give you alot of is time. I have thought about how my poker year has gone so far and one thing i definitely need to improve on is my Live cash performances. I have lost the last four times i have played which is a record number of consecutive losses. Playing so much online has definitely had a negative impact when i play cash games. I think its due to my patience. When i played far more regularly live last year i was always patient and looking for a very good spot to commit all my money. Now when i play i seem to be in a hurry. Its because i am so used to playing 2 or 3 tables at a time on the internet and quickly get bored when there are only about 10 hands an hour. I am going to play a fair bit of cash in Vegas so will hopefully play with far more patience and concentration.......
