I've missed out $10/$20 games but i'm pretty much even on the year. At one point i was down around $300000 ish ... sick! At times this year its gone very badly online, but considering the runs i've had i don't feel too bad about the results so far.

Clearly Hold'em has gone very badly this year. Last year i won about $250000 playing Hold'em and this year i'm down about $300000. A $550000 swing! I've definitely played badly at times and haven't been as focussed at Hold'em cash as i once was (far too easily tilted). The general standard of players has definitely got better!

Seems my best results by far have come at $25/$50 PL Omaha 6 handed. I'm up close to $300000 at that.... maybe thats what i should stick too :-D

There are a load of big tournaments scheduled from September onwards.... here is what i am hoping to play!

EPT Barcelona August 28th - Sept 1st €7700 NL Hold'em
WSOP Europe Sept 8th - 10th £5000 PL Omaha
EPT London Sept 25th - 29th £5200 NL Hold'em
WPT Barcelona Oct 11th - 16th €7500 NL Hold'em
GUKPT London Oct 18th - 21st £1000 NL Hold'em
EPT Dublin October 30th - Nov 3rd - €7700 NL Hold'em
GUKPT Final 29th Nov - 2nd Dec - £3000 NL Hold'em
EPT Prague December 10th - 14th - €3700 NL Hold'em

Been playing a load online since i got back from Vegas. Probably put in about 90 hours in the last two weeks and things have been going good. I've mainly been playing $25/$50 PL Omaha.... had a few shots at $50/$100 as well, and even a bit of Hold'em.

Looking back on my tracker i had really good results at short handed NL Hold'em last year and i have hardly played this year, except for an unsuccessful period of playing Heads Up $50/$100 and $100/$200 on Betfair. Anyway, i played two tables of $25/$50 yesterday 4-6 handed for a while and did well despite running bad. Maybe i've found my enthusiasm to play NL cash again!

Tournament wise... there is nothing before the WSOP Europe that i'm going to play. Going away next weekend for a non poker holiday! You can buy in for the WSOP Europe on Betfair's poker site now... there is even a small discount because we are running good against the dollar right now!

WSOP Europe

As you may have seen Betfair Poker are sponsoring the WSOP Europe. This is the schedule:

Thurs September 6th H.O.R.S.E Buy in £2500 (3 day event)

Saturday September 8th Pot Limit Omaha £5000 (2 day event)

Monday September 10th WSOP Europe Main Event No-Limit Texas Hold'em £10000 (6 day event)

The main event is sure to create the biggest prize pool ever seen in Europe. All the details can be found here. Betfair are guaranteeing to hand out a $1.5 MILLION in prize money and packages before September 6th!!!

The link also includes details of all the casinos its going to be played in, hotels to stay at, online qualification routes and how to buy in direct.

I've had a nightmare the WSOPE has fallen on the worst week of the year for me to be able to play because of stuff i organised before it was announced. I may be able to play the Pot Limit Omaha, but the main event looks unlikely at the moment!

Hmmmm built my stack up to 60000 by the end of level 3. Was cruising. Average was 28000. Then lost with 47 v 79 all in on a 47K flop for 30000. Got back to 65000 when the following hand happened. Couple of limpers (blinds 200/400) I make it 1600 with KK in the BB. Two callers. Flop JQ7. SB check... i bet 6000. Other guy folded.... SB makes it 15000. I call. Turn a 7. He moves all in for about 37000. Its almost impossible for me to be losing given the preflop action so i insta called. He showed JQ. At this point it was a 110k pot for the chip lead. Off course i got four outered....

WSOP Update 8

Back in Las Vegas. Got here a few days ago and have generally been chilling. Been out for a couple of decent meals and bars.

I'm playing today (Day 1b) which seems to be a popular day to have chosen. Hopefully i will get a decent table.
