Vegas countdown

Decided rather than have a break from online i'd have a crack at the 25/50 PL Omaha games on Betfair, which have been crazy in the last few weeks with 3/4 6 handed tables going sometimes. Turned out to be a good decision as i won $80000 on the day. I was up $105000 at $25/$50 at one point which must be my best ever day at those levels.... then i lost a bit back and some at $50/$100 and quit. Loads of hands... here are some of the bigger ones:

Didn’t think the sevens were outs

Spiked the river

Set over set

First real big pot of the day

Chase the Aces

Pair of nines wins $9k

Dominating hand

If this call had happened live in a $16k pot may have mucked before he showed

First of a few losses to quads

Running pretty good

I thought I had lost this one

Top two are good


Nice turn

Stack over $50k

Last hand of the first session which I played like a DONK

Quads over quads to tilt me

Trying some $50/$100

More $50/$100 … six outered of the river

Just four days to go now till Las Vegas.... bring it on!

Blog Cull

I was taking a look through all my links and noticed a load of blogs seem to have been retired... so i will deleting them off in the next few days if they haven't been updated in the last 6 weeks. I added a few new ones as well. Having a break from online before the WSOP as i don't want to be on tilt before i even start playing tournaments...... i have never cashed in America so that will be the first thing to put right!

Big Stakes

I blogged a while ago asking if anyone was interested in backing me to play the big Omaha games online.... 50/100 and bigger. There were a few people very interested but i never got round to meeting them and sorting something out. I feel like i really want to get involved in those big games again as they bring out my best game, and i reckon i can beat them if i am bankrolled properly. So if anyone is interested drop me an email (

I have another televised tournament this weekend. The Betfair Masters of Europe. Looks like i found myself in an interesting heat. Here it is:

Ben Grundy
Roland De Wolfe
Marc Goodwin
Ram Vaswani
Jan Olav Sjavik
Peter Smyth

It should make for a good heat. Its definitely the toughest one i think!

I haven't posted any hands for a while so here are a few:

Its nice to run good part 1

Its nice to run good part 2

Firing three bullets that worked

Firing three bullets that didn't work

Heads Up sick beat

Heads Up the very next hand FFS

A cold deck

Moderate Tilt

Still running pretty sick though i am not losing which is a consolation. Earlier i was up £20000 and playing good, and then lost two really brutal pots where i was over 85% in both of them when the money went in. These things happen but these came in consecutive hands. I quickly had to switch the computer off.

I had a very good rakeback spin up though :-) .... I turned my rakeback from £1000 to about £40000, before going backwards just over £10000 and cashing out. Felt good though as i didn't have to deposit!

Its not long to go till the WSOP. Less than a month till my flight anyway. Hoping to play in around 10-15 events in my first stint between June 3rd-23rd! Will definitely be taking a well deserved break from cash games in that period!

Man Utd lost as well which was pretty sick. Should win the league though maybe this weekend!!
