Betfair Poker Plus

Betfair are launching Betfair Poker Plus tomorrow with loads of changes to the software. You can see full details if you click here. You can also email me ( if you are interested in rakeback. A few of the details are below as well:

Betfair Poker Plus is a new version of Betfair's poker software that allows you to generate multiple tables in separate windows and then stretch, shrink and arrange them around your screen to suit you.

This break from the rigid display options of earlier versions of our software will give you much more freedom over how you want to play your poker. If you like to focus on one table then you can choose to fill your screen by playing at 200% standard size, alternatively you could shrink down to the smallest 70% size and get on with other things on your PC at the same time.

And for those of you who like to multi-table, it's a real treat as you can now "comfortably" operate up to 15 windows at the same time with quick and easy layered table formatting.

On top of all these developments, there are also additional usability changes such as being able to scroll the lobby with your mouse "track wheel" which will make finding your desired game even easier.

Grafting ish!

Been playing a load since my last post and managed to have had a decent recovery. Decided not to go to the Bellagio because i needed to concentrate on the games online, and also the WSOP is just six weeks away so i can look forward to playing a load of tournaments there..... and hopefully a final table or two.

Haven't been playing any bigger than $25/$50 apart from the odd short stack attack at $50/$100. More than anything i just hate to lose at the bigger games, because i know i am not properly bankrolled to play them yet. It probably makes me play differently as well becuase i know i play too tight compared to my usual game.

My next tournament is the Poker Masters which is an invite only 36 player field which is going to be at Hammersmith studios down the road. I haven't played too many TV tournaments but i hope to start playing some more soon. Betfair also have a news blog now which is here.

I stumbled across Brian Townsend's blog as well which shows some of the monster swings and wins in the biggest games online.

Sick March

January was my worst ever losing month online, followed by my best ever month in February... followed by a new record worst month in March. I won't bore anyone with hand history's but it got to a point where i couldn't even look at the screen, because i knew i was going to lose every big pot i played whether my opponent had a 70% or 5% chance.

Bankroll has taking a bit of a battering. So i'm going to avoid playing so big for a while. Definitely no $100/$200 kind of stakes. I had a nearly 10 days off playing because i needed it.

I am meant to be going to play the bellagio WPT Championship next week...but its 50/50 because i'm not sure whether to concentrate on recovering online, or take a shot at a huge prize pool.
