Back in London

I haven't played that much poker since returning from Vegas. I still am yet to sort out my accommodation in London so at the moment i can only play in internet cafes. I got a strange look today when i jumped around in excitement when someone called me down with a six flush in a big pot in Omaha :-)

It was good to see Willie Tann win the $1000 NL Holdem WSOP event and pick up a bracelet. He has been off form of late so i know how much the win will have meant to him.

Tournament wise i am looking forward to the festivals in Luton and the Vic. Hopefully the EPT schedule for season two will come out soon as well.

I was watching the updates on the final table of the WSOP. For someone to with $7.5 million is just incredible. Next year will there be 10000 runners? Or perhaps they will raise the buy in to $25000 or even $50000.

One thing i am really missing is playing Dealers Choice. I couldn't find a decent game in Las Vegas and i haven't played in one for at least three months now. So i guess a trip to the Vic may be in order next week.

When i do get myself connected to the internet i am keen to try out some new ways of making money online. It will look like this:

Week 1 - Pot Limit Omaha
Week 2 - Single table tournaments
Week 3 - Multi table tournaments
Week 4 - NL Holdem

I just fancy a bit of a change from Pot Limit Omaha. So if i put the same hours into each i will be able to see if i can make a decent profit at the others.

I did post this interview with Phil Hellmuth on Blondepoker but if you haven't watched you just have to.

I'll be interested to see how you do in the MTTs. I reckon there's a lot of potential profit there (so many bad players for whom patience is simply a card game) - personally I'd stick to playing them only, if only I had the time.

Any reason why you don't play Omaha Hi/Lo? I've got my head around it now, and there seems to be quite a few players out there that, quite frankly, haven't. I can't help thinking that there's money to be made there as well.

Ben, Have a look at David Young's blog!

and please when the time comes stay away from the Betfair Sixpaks....they are my meat and two veg

don't play a hand for three levels, find that by then six players have become four, then steal bcos of tight image, watch another get knocked out and then you have a 2 in 3 chance of cashing

repeat as necessary!!!!!

I do like playing Omaha Hi/Lo but i just can't seem to find good Pot Limit games on the net. The ones on Betfair only get gpoing at the £1/£2 levels.....

Are you going to come and play in one of the festival events at the Vic?

Try Party Network for regular $400 buy-in PLO8 tables and sometimes $600 buy-in.

PokerStars has mostly $200 buy-in and irregular $400 buy-in.
